Pool Construction Process
Building your pool
Step 1 – Pre-processing
All of the plans and legal documents are checked and verified. The pre-site and engineering equipment/products are ordered.
Step 2 – Permitting
Your permit is prepared and submitted to your county. The time this takes will vary depending on the city/county.
Step 3 – Virtual Reality Design
The crew will put all of your information into the computer and work on creating your own virtual reality oasis. This also allows for all of the information such as measurements/ last-minute design changes to be seen by the crew.
Step 4 – Final Processing
This is where all of the pre-grade is ordered and if there is anything that is already in the backyard would be removed to start renovating and digging.
Step 5 – Layout
On your property, Elite Pools will put a painted layout of exactly where your pool will go.
Step 6 – Excavation
This is where things might get dirty! The excavator arrives and digs up the dirt where your new pool will be.
Step 7 – Equipment and plumbing
Your pool equipment and plumbing will be installed at this point.
Step 8 – Steel
After Phase 7, steel rebar with spacers are installed to create the structure for your pool.
Step 9 – Electric
The electric wiring is then installed with all the necessary precautions.
