Reasons to Prepare Your Grounds Thoroughly Before Swimming Pool Construction

For all the many great things about having a pool right on your residential property, you’ve got to make sure you do a great job setting the right foundation before your pool is built. Learn why it’s essential that you ensure you prepare your property the right way before any type of pool construction.

Improved Structure

Well-prepared pool grounds result in a solid structure for the actual pool. This is because when you fill your pool up with water, the total weight of the water will be focused on a particular area of the foundation. You don’t want all that weight sitting on a soft spot of the ground or an area where the foundation isn’t balanced. Preparation better ensures longevity over the long haul and reduces the chances of you needing an avoidable pool repair.

Better Planning

Another great thing about proper preparation during pool construction is the fact that both you and the builders will be able to better plan the pool layout. You’ll know what kind of design will work best and create your desired layout accordingly, which is better than getting your heart set on a specific pool plan only to learn that you’ll have to scrap those plans when a problem is discovered.

Construction Boost

The final benefit of grounds preparation is that builders will be able to bring their all when it comes to the actual construction of the pool. Just like a well-built home requires a solid foundation to better avoid problems and compromises, the same rules apply to pools. A well-built pool not only lasts longer, it can also boost the overall value of your home should you decide to put it on the market.

Pay close attention to the beginning stages of pool construction. Making sure your grounds are prepared the right way is almost a guarantee of your overall satisfaction.

Dennis Bunch

I would just like to thank GSM Builders. My husband and I like our pool that has just been remodeled. While we thought we would have to build a new pool, Greg saved us on time and money. We added a spa and water features to our dated pool. It looks great! I would highly recommend Greg and his team. Great work!

Dean Miller

When my parents were deciding to move Florida, the first thing I thought of was "you'd better buy a house with a pool." They did, but it was in major need of repairs. We called Greg and his team and they helped us remodel the pool and the entire area around it! It's like their own personal tropical escape in their backyard. He was fast, friendly, and gave us a fair price! I highly recommend Greg for all of your pool remodeling needs!

We had gone to three different pool builders. One of them never came back with a quote. The other quoted us for a pool that was on the smaller side. GSM quoted us for a larger pool and showed us a computer rendition of what it would look ..
