Steps building a swimming pool
We would like to share the systematic steps we take in creating your beautiful new poolscape.
1. Swimming pool design
All our clients will receive a 3D animated design before construction begins. These are very realistic and allow you to see all the details of the design and enable you to make any revisions or improvements if necessary.
2. The swimming pool layout
The dimensions of the swimming pool design are layed out onto the proposed site area. This truly helps to physically see the outlines of the actual size and shape of the pool. Before the ground is then actually excavated, the client can make changes if necessary.
3. The excavation of the swimming pool
The site is then prepared for the pool construction by excavating the grass, underlying soil and possible rock.
4. Forming and steel
Steel and wood are used to form a solid foundation for any home. This is also used to form the shape and structure of your swimming pool. It serves as the framework for the poolscape and contains high structural integrity.
5. Electrical and piping
The pluming and electrical components are then installed. We ensure that the plumbing is pressure tested and the electrical components meet the necessary regulations.
This stage is quite awesome. The Gunite is applied by using high-pressure hoses to create the tough inner shell of your new swimming pool. It’s great to see the Gunite concrete applied and worked onto the forming structure. It’s like a real-time vision of your dream pool coming to life.
7. Tiles, coping, mosaics
We have a variety of choices that can be used for the final finishes and linings of your swimming pool, such as natural stone tiles, slates, ceramics and mosaics. The coping can be crafted from limestone, brick, cement or an assortment of other materials. We go to great lengths to monitor quality during the installation process to ensure that the final finish is done flawless and built to last.
8. Marble-lite and fibre-glass
Marble-lite and fibre-glass is applied onto the concrete and requires a quick, experienced and hard-working team to smooth the surface to assure a beautiful finish. The swimming pool is then filled with water.
9. Start-up and training
The initial start-up and maintenance of your swimming pool can leave you overwhelmed. We will however, train you on how to use the controls of the pool equipment, as well as a manual that explains how to easily take care of your pool. But we will be available to answer any questions.
