Initial Planning & pool design

One of our expert designers will visit your home to determine your pool needs, ideas, what options appeal to you, and your budget. They will also measure your yard and note elevations and access. Then, they will create a pool conceptualization that includes: pool size, location, and shape, special features, and equipment location. Finalizing plans and discussing landscaping completes this first step.

Construction Plan & City Permits

Your designer will create a detailed construction plan that identifies utilities, elevations, and other factors unique to your property. We will submit these plans to the right local agencies on your behalf to get all permits.

pool layout

One of our construction experts will make an appointment to layout the pool — paint the outline of the pool in your backyard. They will get your written approval on the location, shape, and elevation of your pool. Any changes will be made in writing, with your signature.


Using the layout mentioned in the previous step as a guideline, we will excavate your pool using an excavator, bobcat or by hand, depending on the size of the access to the backyard.


Structural support is the foundation of your pool. We reinforce the shell of your pool by using steel bars placed at intervals to maximize structural integrity. You will have a limited lifetime structural warranty.

Underground Plumbing & Electrical

We will dig trenches outside the walls of the pool for all of our underground water, gas and electrical lines. Our plumbing crew uses corrosive resistant PVC pipe and over-sized plumbing lines for improved circulation. The lines are then pressure-tested to guarantee proper operation.

Shotcrete Applied

We will create the shell of your pool by applying shotcrete (a high-strength concrete mix) into the pool. The shotcrete will encapsulate the rebar grid that was previously installed in your pool. Our crew will then hand-sculpt all steps, tanning ledges, etc., to match precise measurements.

Tile and Coping added to Pool

Our expert masons will install your choice of coping around the pool perimeter. We will also do any special stone or rock work, such as waterfalls, retaining walls or hardscapes. Your water-line tile is then installed. Our masons and tile-setters are dedicated craftsmen who will make sure each detail meets precise specifications.

Pool Decking added

We typically form your decks in one day, but installation may take several days. Completion time depends on deck size, materials, and finishes you chose with your designer. Our experienced deck building crew will take the time needed to make sure you have a durable, attractive deck to surround your pool.

Interior Finish and Plaster Added

We will apply plaster or pebble finish directly onto the shotcrete and smooth trowel it to give a smooth finish. One of our representatives will meet with you before we schedule this to do a project walk-through and discuss your questions. They will instruct you on properly filling your pool with water after we apply the interior finish. A “Pool School” appointment will also be scheduled.

Start Up & Pool Maintenance Walk Through

One of our technicians will visit you after the pool is full of water and before Pool School begins. They will turn on any equipment to make sure everything is working properly. During Pool School, they will show you how to use your equipment. Feel free to film this with your smartphone for future reference.
