Developing an inground swimming pool is the culmination of different phases of construction. The first place most homeowners look for capable contractors is the local phone book, and by word of mouth from others who have built a pool. After the initial interview process, you will have a good idea what your will cost to have built. The contractor or consultant will provide a layout and a complete bid for your acceptance.
With a long term contract in hand, the contractor will obtain all necessary engineering from a qualified architectural engineer. The contractor will then submit for permits from the local jurisdiction. At this point, it might also be necessary for the contractor to apply for a Home Owners Association(HOA) approval based upon on your local community requirements. Once the building permit is obtained, the construction techinques off in high gear.
Design and style - This is one of the most exciting phases of swimming pool construction, excavation. Excavation is the digging and forming. The very first thing the excavation crews do is the pregrade. Pregrade is the clearing of the pool site and the grading of the area for the swimming pool. This allows the crew to paint on the ground the final shape of your pool and at the same time the crew will stake the perimeter of the pool and add forms for the structure of the pool. The typical time needed to dig a pool depends on various factors.
Water system & Electrical - Once the pool is dug, it's time to move on to the rough plumbing and electrical. This is where all of the trenches will be dug for all the pipes and conduits necessary to operate your pool. Sometimes, the rough plumbing & electrical will be broken down in a couple of parts, otherwise all trenching and installation of the pipes and conduits will be done at the same time.
Swimming Pools Phoenix - The steel phase is the addition of rebar formed in the ultimate shape of the pool. A rebar contractor will tie the steel using bailing wire in a grid pattern determined by the structural engineer. A good crew will normally take less than a day to tie the steel depending on the size, shape and any raised walls or bond beams.
