What are the Stages of Building a Pool?

Premier Pools & Spas of Phoenix is going to take you through the stages of building a pool step by step. If you are just starting your pool building process then this is the perfect article to look through before your pool builders get started.

Step 1: Excavation

Assuming that you’ve already worked out all the details of designing prior to this point with your local pool builder. The first step that we are going to jump into is excavation. Excavation is one of the messiest parts because the pool builders have to dig a hole in your backyard. This means that there are going to be piles of dirt being taken out of your yard into a dump truck.

Step 2: Pipes and Pluming

Once you have a hole in your backyard, the pool builders will have plumping to lay down and re-barb wire to structure the shell of your swimming pool. All of the plumbing is tested before hand to ensure that the pipes work and none of them are broken. At this point it doesn’t exactly resemble a swimming pool yet but just wait until the next step.

Step 3: Framing your Pool

Depending on the material you choose to create your swimming pool, this next step is where everything comes to life. With a shotcrete or gunite pool, this is where your pool builder will come in with a concrete material to spray the first layer of your swimming pool. This is where you will see the shape take place. With a Fiberglass pool, your pool builders will place an exterior shell (pre-fabricated) into the hole that they have dug already.

Step 4: Decking and Outdoor Entertainment

While the base of your swimming pool is curing in water, your pool builders will be working on the hardscaping that you chose to go around your swimming pool. They will also be working on any additional features that you wanted incorporated into your pool design. If you wanted extra patio space or an outdoor kitchen, this is the time that they will complete all of that.

Step 5: Adding Tile

After your swimming pool has had time to cure then the pool builders will go in and add the trim tile to the boarder of your swimming pool. Once that is completed they will also apply the interior finish of your swimming pool. This is something that you will also choose. The interior finish is the color plaster that your swimming pool will be when everything is finished. There are a lot of different colors of plaster that you can choose from from a tropical turquoise to a deep sea blue.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Last step! We’re almost done, only one more thing to complete and you will have the backyard of your dreams. Now that your swimming pool is constructed our pool building crew will do their best to clean up any extra debris that are laying around. We also do a complimentary pool chemistry balancing and start your swimming pool pump. Enjoy your new backyard oasis!
