Design and Permits
To ensure that your vision matches the final product, we will provide you with detailed drafts of your design. This will allow you to make changes and improvements as needed before construction actually begins. Additionally, we offer the option to see a virtual reality rendering of your new pool, exactly as it would look in your backyard. Once you’ve approved the design, we create detailed structural drawings and apply for the necessary permits for swimming pool construction projects.
Layout and Excavation
This is the first phase of construction of your pool. We will take the measurements for your pool and lay it out in your backyard. This is an opportunity for you to see the actual size and shape in case any last minute modifications need to be made. After the layout is approved, the real work begins. We’ll use special equipment to excavate the grass and soil from your yard to make room for your new pool. This step usually takes only one to two days, and the soil that is removed can either be hauled away or simply moved to another area of the yard, according to your preference.
After the excavation is complete, a steel installation crew will begin constructing the skeleton structure for your new pool. This forms the shape and support for the cement shell. The steel rods are placed all along the sides and bottom of the pool to provide structural integrity, making your pool durable and long-lasting.
Plumbing, Electrical, and Equipment
Before adding the cement, we first need to install all of the plumbing and electrical required for your pool. We ensure that the new plumbing is pressure tested and the electrical meets the necessary city and state building codes. Correctly sized plumbing is essential to proper circulation and pump efficiency. While plumbing work is occurring, you will see the setup of utilities and the installation of your new equipment. This includes pumps, heaters, and filters. In addition, you have the option at this time to install a salt water system for your pool. Inspections will also be made by the swimming pool remodeling contractor to ensure everything is being completed correctly and the job is going smoothly.
Next, our experienced team applies the gunite (cement) layer to create the tough inner shell of your new pool. The concrete used is a dry mix that is mixed onsite with water from a hose. The amount of water used during this step is precisely monitored in order to guarantee that the mix has the the correct consistency. After the gunite is added, the new layer will take approximately seven days to fully dry. It will need to be watered several times a day in order to prevent cracking during the drying time.
Tile and Coping
After the structural portion of your new swimming pool has been put in place, the decorative process can finally begin. Based upon your taste and design, a wonderful selection of tile choices is available, including natural stone tiles, slates, ceramics. Mosaics can also be installed to create a one-of-a-kind design. Pool coping, which borders your new pool, comes in a variety of materials, including natural stone, brick, or cement. After this step, your pool is nearly ready for swimming!
Decking is the hardscape surface that surrounds the perimeter of your pool. A variety of materials can be used here, from custom stone to stamped concrete, based on your design and unique tastes. During this stage, any additional features included in your design, such as outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and built-in BBQ/kitchens will be installed as well.
Plaster and Start-up
Applying the plaster or pebble is a complex process that must be managed meticulously to guarantee that your pool has a beautiful, durable finish. After your new surface is completely applied, the pool is filled with water. Depending on how large your pool is, filling with water usually takes a day or two. In order to eliminate plaster dust, it will need to be brushed at least once a day. If you new surface is pebble, it will also be rinsed in an acidic solution to bring out the beauty of the finish. Once the material has cured, a technician can perform a “start-up,” which involves adding and balancing the chemicals in your new pool.
Your swimming pool project is finally complete! At this point, please let us know if there’s anything you feel we’ve missed or anything you still need done. Good communication is always our highest priority. It is so important to us that you feel satisfied and excited about your new pool.
Hundreds of Satisfied Customers
“It’s been a little over a month since Stanton Pools finished re-plastering/tiling our pool. I wish I had written a review earlier, but we’ve been enjoying our pool so much! Everything was perfect, and they did a great job! We really liked that this company communicated using modern technology – email, text, online forms, and digitally sending payment. This is an honest company from the start to the end. We highly recommend them!”Marie L.
“We have used a prior pool service for a period of over 15 years and over time we noted that they did not provide proper service and ignored our unique issues with the pool turning very green with algae and the stone turning various shares of purple. We had it and just recently hired Stanton Pools to assist us in our weekly service of our pebble tec pool. Within a period of two weeks the pool sparkles, the green algae is all but history for us and we are starting to see the purple hues on the stonework fading. Eric has been very responsive to all of our questions and needs and once again our pool feels and looks refreshing. We look forward to many continued years of relationship with the company and with most sincerity can highly recommend Stanton Pools. A wise choice for us!”Michael U.
“Eric as the contractor we chose to renovate our pool, which was a total mess. All the sub-contractors he used were superb. Starting with the demolition crew, the plumbers, electrician, tile crew equipment and plastering / pebble crew. Eric coordinated everyone and kept us informed of the progress and what to expect next. A suggestion: we chose the darker color mini pebble, which keeps the pool at a high temperature of 82-85 F during the hot summer days, so it is not necessary to warm the pool during the summer. We are very happy with the result”Raanan B.
“Eric is fantastic! We just purchased a home with a pool that hadn’t been serviced in a while, and he came out, gave me a brief tutorial on my pool and equipment and made sure the pool was cleaned and chemically balanced as soon as possible.”Amy S.
