Step One: We will generally layout the pool
design in the
yard the same day we arrive for excavation. We will need
there to O.K. the final location. Then just sit back
and watch the
If there is room enough, we will use a front end loader
as you can see, to excavate the pool.
The excavation process is very important as everything
else follows it. As you can see after the hole is just
right, we form it up as the pool design calls for.
Then we go to the next step which is laying the steel for
the structure of the
pool. This is also an important process
as we want strength added to
We want to be sure the steel is formed right either 8'', 10",
or 12" centers (whatever the plans call for).
Then you can see the finished steel layout. We
use all #3
rebar in the pool and #4 around beam for extra strength.
Also on deep end pools we double up on the steel for the
slope to the deep end.
After we place
all return lines and skimmers in their designed
place, next comes the major part of the construction. This
is the foundation of the pool as the slab is for your home.
We take extra care to insure you have at least a 6" base
all over pool and at least a 12" beam all around the top.
concrete mix is pumped dry and the right amount of
water is added at the nozzle. Too much water weakens the
