Swimming Pool Contractor FAQ’s
What criteria should I use when choosing a Swimming Pool Contractor?
The best source of information will be people who have used the swimming pool contractor for their own pool. We will provide you with a list of referrals, call the customers on the list and ask about their experience. Visit pools built by the builder to get a first hand feel for the quality of builder. Not all builders are the same. Many cut corners on stone work so they can move on to the next pool. Look at examples of work. You may also wish to check with Better Business Bureau to see if there are amny unresolved complaints against the builder.
Does My Pool Come With a Warranty?
Yes, all our pools come with a lifetime structural warranty. We will provide you with the details of what is covered in writing.

The Design Phase
This is the first step in the building of a swimming pool and the associated landscaping. We will prepare a design specifically for you. We take many things in to consideration at this phase… The property layout, the house style, your wants/desires, the family unit, and budget considerations.
We construct detailed drawings and provide all necessary engineering for the city/county. The city/county process can be a one day to two week process depending on the particular location.
We form the pool with wood forms using the detailed plans that we made for the permit phase. We then use tractors to excavate the swimming pool and dump trucks to take the dirt to a legal dump site
Steel Reinforcement Phase
We place the rebar according to the engineering that is called for in the particular design we are working with.
Rough Plumbing Phase
We place pipe for the water and the electrical to the pool. We pressurize the system. We call for inspection for the steel, bonding, and underground.
We are now ready to apply the shell of the pool. Shot-crete/Gunite is applied by high pressure air to the steel reinforcement. This is one of the more interesting things to watch in the pool building process.
The shot-crete or gunite is allowed to cure for seven to ten days. During this phase water is applied to the shell a couple of times per day to slow down the cure. This makes the shell stronger. We typically take advantage of this cure time by using it to make stone, concrete, tile, and boulder selection.
After the shell has cured sufficiently we start installing the coping, tile, and any water-features that might be included in you design.
Equipment Set Phase
During this phase we install all of the pool equipment including: pumps, filters, lighting, salt systems, electronics, and heaters. Once these are installed we call for a Pre-plaster inspection.
Once we have the okay from the city/county we apply the plaster, hydrazzo, or pebble finish. Water is placed in the pool immediately. Time to start enjoying your swimming pool.
Customer Service Phase
This is one of the most important phases of all. We are still here to serve you after the job is complete.
