Step by Step Pool Construction Process

It’s important to understand the process that goes into building your pools in Jonesboro to get a realistic idea of the things to expect. After choosing the right contractor for your project, all the details that you have agreed to, and everything from the plan and timeline, down to the insurance application, will be in black and white. The builders don’t simply forget this, so be suspicious of those who want to start without the written agreement. Next is the actual building processes:

Step 1: Digging the Pool

Once you have a go signal from local authorities to build your pool, excavation will promptly start. Ideally, decision-makers must be at home to observe the process. Some supplies will be delivered to the site as well.

Step 2: Fixing the Steel Cage and Pre-Plumbing

A steel cage will be weaved on the perimeter of swimming pools in Jonesboro to hold the concrete stable. Contractors will also mark up the pool features. Pre-plumbing for the pool suctions, returns, electrical, and other features will also happen during this stage.

Step 3: Pouring the Concrete

Workers will spray a high-quality concrete mix to the pool’s wall and then outline the poured material using shaping tools. This process can take anywhere between two to three weeks. Also, you may need to water the walls to soak up moisture twice every day.

Step 4: Installing the Plumbing

After deciding where the pump and filter will be, the plumber will fix all the lines of concrete pools in Jonesboro. The chlorinator, filter, and the pump will also sit on a concrete slab.

Step 5: Coping the Wall

Coping is the material that lines the wall of your pool. Some people prefer granite rocks, but you may also use other materials like tiles, pre-cast concrete, natural stone, etc. Professionals lay the coping and waterline tiles onto sand and cement. Adjustment for expansion joints will follow, and sealant and finishing will be applied.

Step 6: Installing the Pool Fence

The fence will then be put up based on local building code guidelines. Some inspection by the authorities may be necessary, and it could take days depending on how quickly the officials can come for inspection.

Step 7: Laying the Finishing Touches

Pebbling is done to prevent leaks. Similar to the concrete mix on Step 1, the pebble will be sprayed onto the surface and then leveled with flat boards or trowels. Then, a day later, the workers will need to acid wash the pebble and will fill the pool up to the coping brim.

Step 8: An Inspection May be Needed

Once the pool is full, the authorities will check if everything is working including all of the features, the equipment, and chemicals that will be used to treat the pool.

Step 9: Briefing on Pool Maintenance

A reliable custom pool builder in Jonesboro will schedule a session for teaching you the proper use and maintenance of your pool. You must be ready to troubleshoot whenever you can and promptly call the experts in case you notice something wrong to prevent bigger damage.
