The Gunite Pool Building Process: Starting to Finish

Gunite swimming pools are loved by millions of homeowners all over the country. They provide a fun and visual appeal with many options. The gunite pool construction process can be configured to suit any style preference, whether you prefer sharp angles or smooth curves. Aqua Blue Pools has been one of the best custom pool builders in Houston for many years. Many pools have been installed by us. We can personalize your pool design to enhance the beauty of your backyard.

Everything about the Gunite Pool Building Process

Here's how to transform your backyard | Design and Permits

Our crew will first visit your location and measure it. Our pool designers are qualified to listen to your ideas and collaborate with you to design your swimming pool. Next, you will see a 3D model of your plan. This will give you an idea of the layout of the pool in your yard. At this stage, you can request modifications or additions such as a spa or fire feature or water fountains. After you sign the contract, the permits are issued for the construction. The permit process can take up to three weeks depending on where you live.

Layout and Excavation

The pool design is laid out on your property. This will indicate the exact dimensions and shape of the spa and pool. The excavation crew then digs the site according to the engineering plans. Dig time can vary depending on the topography of the site (whether there is hard soil or excessive groundwater). A pool retaining wall in Houston TX is required if you have a sloped yard.

Electric and plumbing equipment

This stage is where plumbing, skimmers, electrical, and gas lines are installed. The electricity supply is essential for pool equipment. We add wiring during this phase. Electrical fixtures will also be needed for additional pool features like in-pool lighting. Gas lines can also be installed to supply propane to outdoor kitchens and fire pits.

Installation of Rebar

To install steel around your pool, strengthening the shell and protecting it against cracks and defects, we closely follow engineering plans. Your pool will be stronger with the steel rebar framework. It consists of both a horizontal and vertical series of bars.

Gunite Application

This is the most important phase of the gunite pool construction process. Here, our contractors mix the dry gunite or prepare the Tile, Coping, and Decking. When the pool shell has cured, perimeter tile is added, and pool coping is applied. Deck features like fireplaces, deck jets, or sheer descents can be incorporated at this stage. After this stage, pool pumps, heaters, and other equipment can be added.

Interior and Landscaping for Pools

Integrating the pool’s interior finish provides waterproofing. It takes between 16-24 hours to fill the pool with water. To remove plaster dust, the pool’s interior is brushed. All landscaping additions or updates are made at this stage.

Pool Startup

To ensure that every piece of equipment is working properly, we do a complete sweep. We add water and balance the chemicals to your pool, then we clean up. The final phase is the handover of your pool. We will schedule an orientation to show you how to use the equipment and maintain your pool’s chemistry. Your pool is now ready!
