Your New Pool: What to Expect During Construction

Having a swimming pool installed in your yard can be an exciting venture. A pool not only provides entertainment for the family but may also raise the overall value of your home as well. If you are preparing to have a pool put in, knowing what to expect when it comes to pool construction can help you plan the process more efficiently and prevent the waste of time and money.

The first step in planning a pool installation is to contact a professional swimming pool construction company or contractor. Companies that specialize in the design and creation of pools can inspect and survey your backyard to ensure your new pool will fit the space you have available and that local and state laws are obeyed during construction. They may also be able to offer you design ideas that suit your budget.

Once the pool is designed, the actual pool construction can begin. Your contractor will bring heavy digging machinery in to excavate the area, as well as a border to ensure there is room for bonding material that will be necessary for a good seal. Your contractor or pool company should remove the excess dirt and soil, although you should ask if that is part of the service beforehand.

After the interior of the pool is installed, the plumbing, tiles and lighting, if any, will be installed. Your contractor will then inspect the seal and lining before the pool is filled. The filters may need to operate for at least twelve to 24 hours before you and your family can dive in. Before the pool installers leave your property, it is a good idea to have a list of questions for them so you can learn to operate and clean your pool properly in the weeks to come.

Having a new pool installed at your home can be a worthy investment and provide your family with hours of entertainment. Knowing what to expect during pool construction can give you peace of mind about the process and make it an adventure, not a hassle.

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 ..
