The Pool Building Process

The construction of gunite swimming pools often refers to the pneumatical application of a “concrete mixture” that forms a thick, durable pool shell that will last for years to come.

Concrete is a versatile material preferred by pool owners all over America for decades. Its porous qualities, design options, and overall configuration give gunite swimming pools a range of structural strength that raises it above the pack – as compared to vinyl pools. With a gunite pool, your private aquatic resort can take on virtually any size, shape, depth, or configuration, providing the ultimate versatility for pool design.

The Gunite pool building process

Step1: Pool Layout. We discuss the pool installtion with the homeowner and finalize the pool layout.

Step 2: Dig. We dig the site and fit a stone bed to add strength and support to the gunite swimming pool. Then, we set up a wooden rebar framework as per the pool design.

Step 3: Steel Installation. The structural steel reinforcement placed over bricks in the entire dup-up site acts as a skeleton to the pool.

Step 4: Plumbing. For a more energy-efficient pool, we use plumbing lines that are larger than average. Then, we add electrical wiring.

Step 5: Gunite Shell. The gunite pool shell is sprayed onto the steel reinforcement.

Step 6: Tile and Coping. We add the perimeter tile, coping over the gunite bond beam, and decking around the pool.

Step 7: Concrete Patio. Pool circulation, heating, and filtration equipment is added.

Step 8: Plaster. The last step is to apply a waterproof pool interior finish. We also ensure that the surroundings are correct by working closely with you on the landscape design.
