This time of year, we are seeing tons of new pool installation in NJ and the tri-state area. Year after year, inground pools along the east coast are increasing in popularity and pushing the boundaries of design. We find that while many homeowners are eager to include a swimming pool in their property, they are unaware of everything that goes into the pool installation in NJ process. Everything from outdoor patios, kitchens and bars can be incorporated into the plans with the swimming pool construction process.
First, it helps tremendously to work first with a designer or architect to help with the planning process. Through various meetings with your landscape designer, a master plan will be finalized. Budgets, final designs and permitting are all finalized and taken care of so the process can continue to move forward. If need be, we will have engineers involved in the early stages of your inground pool depending on the complications that may occur in your yard. Once the town reviews and the permitting are taken care of we can begin the building stages.
Once the initial layout is approved, a wooden frame is put up to show the perimeter of the pool. Then begins the excavation. During excavation, a hole is dug in your yard into the shape of your new pool. Once the excavation process is complete, the steel rebar frame is built inside to hold the shape of the inground pool. When the steel rebar is complete, electric plumbing and bonding of the pool gets done.
Gunite is the next major step in the pool building process. Gunite trucks come to the site to spray and shoot the entire pool. Once that is all set, the electric plumbing is completed and hooked up to the units. Tiles, coping and any additional water features, such as waterfalls, are then done simultaneously. It can vary depending on each individual pool. After this stage, your inground swimming pool is washed and prepped for plaster.
Water is added into the pool immediately following the completion of plaster. All equipment is turned on and we provide a tutorial to each client. We will go over everything with you to learn how to use your controls, lights, filters, etc. Once the tutorial is complete the swimming pool installation is over, the pool is ready to be enjoyed for many years to come!
