Here’s What You Can Expect
While every custom built pool is different, the design and building process generally remains the same. Here’s what you can expect after you contact with 20th Century Pools.
An experienced person in pool designs will visit you at your home. We’ll gather information about what you want to accomplish. What do you want the space to look like? How will the pool be used? Then we’ll measure the yard, consider the location for sunlight and usability, and make sure that you understand all of the available options. In this initial consultation, we listen carefully so that we can seamlessly incorporate your dreams and your vision into an elegant and functional backyard oasis.
Within two weeks or less, your custom design will be completed and ready for review. You will also be able to discuss and decide on further options, details, and features.
Once you decide to move forward, we can immediately begin to schedule the building phase of your new pool. Now we are ready to engineer your custom pool.
Our initial phase will start layout, grading and excavating of the pool site. We’ll also perform any necessary demolition during this phase. After the site has been excavated, we will install the reinforncing steel, or rebar. Then all of the plumbing and underground electrical work will be completed before the pool goes through a city or county inspection – called pre gunite inspection.
Your pool will be sprayed with a concrete-like substance known as shotcrete or gunite. After shotcrete or gunite the next installation is coping and tile.
If there is any swimming pool masonry work on the project we will complete all of the masonry work. If you have chosen to include features like custom walls, rock features, waterfalls, a bar-b-que or a fireplace, they will be built or installed during this phase of construction.
The deck of your pool will be installed. Depending on the amount of concrete work It usually takes approximatley up to one week to prepare and pour the pool decking. If required by your city code prior to pouring the concrete it will then go thru inspection prior to the pour. Any options such as gates, fences, or alarms will also be installed here if contracted by 20th Century Pools.
Finally, its time for your swimming pool plaster. This is one of the last phases of construction. It will usually only take one day to plaster your pool.
Fill your new pool with water! When the plaster phase is complete, your pool will finally be ready to be filled with water. Now it’s time to call your friends and family so you can have a pool party to celebrate!
