Construction Steps for a San Marcos Pool Builder

You’ve made the decision: You are going to add a pool to your San Marcos property. Here are our Pool Builder steps…

Step 1 – Design the Perfect Pool

You will meet with the San Marcos, [%LS%] pool builder. Bring a plot map of your property for the design stage. Your pool builder will work with you to meet the many design needs and ideas you have. If you aren’t sure what you want, the San Marcos, [%SS%] pool builder can create a fresh design for you.

Step 2 – Complete Agreement

As the design of the pool is completed, you will sign a contract agreement with the San Marcos pool builder. The agreement will itemize the process, the payments, and the responsibilities of all parties involved.

Step 3 – Digging the Pool

Before digging begins, the San Marcos pool builder will plot out the location of the pool using spray-paint. Using a variety of earthmoving equipment, the pool builder will grade and dig the location for the San Marcos pool. Excess dirt that can’t be incorporated into new landscaping will be removed from the site.

Step 4 – Steel, Plumbing & Equipment

The gaping hole in your San Marcos yard won’t be empty for long. Steel reinforcing bars will be placed in the hole, along with drains, pipes, and conduits for electriSan Marcos and gas.

Step 5 – Gas & Electric

When the conduits have been placed, the San Marcos gas and electric companies will make the first of several visits to the site. The utilities have to be installed, tested, inspected and approved.

Step 6 – Tile & Coping

Once the San Marcos inspections have been completed, it is time to make this construction site look like a pool. San Marcos pool builders will install the coping and the tile. Another round of inspections may be required at this time, depending on San Marcos and county regulations.

Step 7 – Pool Decking

Your pool is starting to be recognizable as a pool. It is time for the San Marcos pool builder to complete the decking. The installation of pool decking indicates you are nearing the end of the process and are that much closer to using your San Marcos pool.

Step 8 – Pool Plastering

The final step in the construction of your San Marcos pool is Pool Plastering which is the installation of plaster or other surface linings. Your pool builder will finish this process in about two days. Following the surfacing will be a final San Marcos inspection.

Step 9 – Fill & Enjoy You New Pool​

Just add water. And chemicals. Your San Marcos pool builder will get the water chemical balance to the appropriate levels before they call the job done. ENJOY your new San Marcos custom pool!
