Stage One: Site Layout
Determining the final grade level of the pool, final measurements and positioning of the pool
Stage Two: Excavation
Before excavation starts, we draw the pool on the ground and mark off segments of the pool area as to follow the proper grades and depths set by the dig plans. Once the hole is complete, begin to install the steel sections
Stage Three: Setting of Pool, Backfill and Adding Water
At this time, the pool is checked to insure it's level and situated correctly. The liner is installed, smoothed out and water is the next item to be added, backfilled using gravel on the outside of the pool. After the pool has been backfilled about 75%, we then run the plumbing to the filter system, using 40 PVC pipe.
Stage Four: Forming and Prep Work of Concrete
The concrete edge is formed in this stage and gravel is spread out and compacted, covering the patio area entirely as to provide a sound base for the concrete
Stage Five: Concrete Deck Poured
Here you can see the concrete pour and finish process. In this example, the deck consisted of a broom finished concrete with a color integrated into the mix.
Stage Six: Final Grade
The final stage of the concrete deck consists of saw cuts placed in different areas as to prevent any unnecessary cracking. Once this has been completed, the outside of the pool area is graded with a bobcat.
Stage Seven: Pool Time!
It's time to start enjoying your new pool. Wow, that was fast!
Stage Eight: Orientation
The pool is cleaned and the new pool owners are taught how to operate their pool.
We just wanted to thank you for far exceeding our expectations with our new pool. The pool itself is absolutely gorgeous and everyone associated with Creative Pools and Service has been professional and nice to work with. We would recommend Creative Pools and Service to anyone who wants a pool. Thanks again for making this so painless - we are thrilled with the results!
