Pipeline Pools creates a custom pool design with each client. From there, plans are engineered and submitted for permitting. Every step of construction is required to pass inspection prior to moving forward.
Upon permit approval, the layout is marked per blue prints. Heavy machinery, such as bobcats and backhoes perform the excavation. Dump trucks will haul away any extra dirt that won't be needed during the backfill stage.
Once the excavation is complete, the shell of the pool is formed . Lumber is installed to support the steel/rebar grid that will be put in place. The first steps of the plumbing process also begin during this stage.
The gunite is sprayed with a high velocity pump into the steel cage and creates the permanent pool structure. Steps, sun shelves, swim outs, and hot tubs are all molded during the gunite process.
Plumbing is installed and run to the area housing the pool pump, filter, heater, and accessories. Fill is then moved back and compacted around the pool to level the surrounding area to grade. Engineers test the backfill for soil density to ensure proper compaction for the deck installation.
Decorative waterline tiles and coping are installed after waterproofing agents are in place. The geotechnical approved soil and compaction is now ready for the decking to be poured or laid. The equipment pad will be poured the same day. Once equipment is installed by our electrician, valve pressures will get inspected.
All safety features, enclosures, and barriers are installed to code. A few examples are screen enclosures, barrier fencing, additional child safety fencing, and pool/window alarms. Applying the gem coat, also known as the pools interior finish is one of the last steps in the construction process. After the gem coat has been applied, the interior is given an acid wash.
Your pool is ready to be filled with water. Pool chemicals are balanced and equipment operation/instruction is explained to the home owner and turned over. Homeowners have the ability to control most pool functions with their smart phones.
