Building a swimming pool


The team at Elite Pool Services will come to the site to carefully survey and mark where the pool will go.


  1. Initial Consultation: We start with a meeting where we'll discuss your needs, preferences, and budget. This will include discussing the type of pool (gunite or vinyl, size, shape, depth, and location. We'll also talk about additional features you might want, like a spa, deck (concrete, travertine), grotto, and waterfall.

  2. Design and Plan: Based on our discussion, we will design a pool that matches your vision and fits into your landscape. We'll consider factors like sun exposure, accessibility, and proximity to your home. Once the design is finalized and approved by you, we'll create a detailed construction plan.

  3. Legal Paperwork: We handle all the necessary paperwork to ensure compliance with local building codes and to secure any necessary permits.

  4. Site Preparation: Our team will then prepare the site for construction. This involves marking out the pool's layout in your yard, and removing any obstacles like trees or rocks.

  5. Excavation: We'll dig the hole for the pool according to the specifications in the design plan. The excavated soil will be spread out around your home or hall away.

  6. Structural Framework: We'll install a durable framework of steel rebars or vinyl pool walls, and steps of tanning ledge inside the excavated area.

  7. Plumbing and Electrical: Installation of the necessary plumbing for water filtration. We will also install conduits for pool lights.

  8. Pool Shell Installation: This depends on the type of pool. If it's a concrete pool, we will pour shotcrete or gunite and shape the shell. If it's a vinyl liner pool, we will install the vinyl pool bottom and fill up the steps with gravel and concrete.

  9. Curing and Backfilling: For concrete/gunite pools, the concrete will need to cure. We'll then backfill around the pool with gravel to prevent any damage to pipes and the walls.

  10. Decking and Coping: Next, we build the deck around the pool and install the coping - that's the border around the edge of the pool. You can choose from a range of materials for both, based on your aesthetic preference and budget.

  11. Tile Installation: We will install tiles inside of the pool and spa (concrete/gunite pools only).

  12. Vinyl Installation: We will install the pool liner.

  13. Plaster Installation: We plaster the pool.

  14. Equipment Installation: We install and connect the pump, filter, heater, and any other equipment to the pool's plumbing and electrical systems.

  15. Filling the Pool: Your pool is now ready to be filled with water. It has to be done right after the plaster or vinyl is installed.

  16. Balancing Water and System Startup: We'll balance the chemical levels in your pool and start up the filtration system to ensure clean, clear water.

  17. Final Cleanup and Inspection: We'll clean the area, remove any debris, and conduct a thorough inspection to make sure everything's working as it should.
