Swimming Pool Building Process
The Build Process
We understand many people in the Dallas Fort Worth area have never been through the process of building a swimming pool and therefore do not know what to expect. Puryear Custom Pools is proud that we do most of the construction of your pool in-house with our own materials, trucks and labor. By not relying on subcontractors for the entire process, we have an easier time scheduling construction within our own employees which guarantees a smoother experience for our customer.
This is an exercise in marking the dimensions of the pool onto the proposed site area. This is a great way to see the outlines of the actual size and shape of the pool.
This is an exciting process of removing the earth and preparing the site for the pool construction.
3. Forming & Steel
This part is always a bit uneasy for the homeowner, because it is visually rough – steel beams and wood are put in place to prepare for the pouring of the concrete or gunite.
4. Electrical & Plumbing
Before the gunite is shot into the pool, we install all the plumbing and electrical; insuring that all plumbing is pressure tested and that the electrical is up to code.
This is very exciting to see. Usually this involves a large team of men that work diligently to create the tough inner shell of your new pool. The next three to seven days requires the homeowner to wet down the gunite twice daily.
The decking is the area surrounding your pool. This can involve elaborate architectural features, such as outdoor fireplaces, covered patios, natural stone seating areas, fountains and water features.
7. Tile & Coping
Today pool construction has a tremendous selection of natural stone tiles, slates, ceramics, and mosaics. The pool coping is usually crafted from natural stone, but can be crafted from brick, cement, or an assortment of other materials.
8. Pool & Masonry
Our masons are very hard working and proud of their craft. We take great measures to monitor the quality of the work during the installation process to assure it is built to last.
Plastering is a very difficult and fast process. It is blown onto the gunite and requires a very quick and hard working crew to smooth the surface to assure a beautiful finish. The pool is then filled with water immediately.
It is very common for the first time pool owner to feel overwhelmed by the initial start-up and maintenance of the swimming pool. We provide every homeowner a complimentary Care Manual that explains in great detail how to easily care for the pool.
