This the one of the “Big” days. This is when we shoot your pool with “shotcrete” to forms it’s shell. This is when you really can see your pool and envision what it will look like. The shell then is watered down several times a day by the homeowner for the period of 7-10 days.
Once the shell is cured, the coping of the pool is installed. Once the coping is in, the tile is then set underneath the coping.
This is when the drainage (if applicable) and decking goes in per the plan. The decking also needs to be watered for a period of one week to help in it’s curing..
This is usually the best time to install the landscaping as the pool is not plastered yet. This allows for any mess that may occur to not fall into a freshly plastered pool. Landscaping can be done any time after the pool is finished as well if that is preferred or if a homeowner is performing that task themselves.
Plaster is the last step to completing the pool. The day of plaster is the day the pool begins filling with water……you’re almost done!!
Once the pool is plastered and completely filled with water, we set a time with you to come out and get the pool going. We set the programs for the pool as well begin to get the pool chemically balanced and cleaned. We also begin the process of teaching you how to operating and care for the pool. We then come out for the next four weeks to get you off on the right foot with the care of your pool. We continue cleaning and caring for your pool while teaching you how to do it at the same time.
That’s it….you are swimming. It usually is about 5-7 days from time of completion .
