New Pool Construction

Client-Focused Pool Construction

At Austin Pools, we believe the pool construction process should be efficient, cost-effective, collaborative and centered around you, the customer.

When it comes to your new swimming pool, our goal is to bring your vision to life. We begin with clear communication and maintain this transparenct throughout the entire pool construction process; we guarantee no “surprises” and share the latest project information upfront. 

Throughout each phase of the process, we will work together closely, every step of the way. Below, please find some key project steps, along with what to expect during these times.

Our Process

1. Layout
After the design is finalized and you are happy with the final look, we stake out the footprint of your new pool, which allows you to see how your new pool will fit in your backyard. We don’t break ground until you see the location and position and are satisfied with everything.

2. Fencing & Excavation
A portion of your fencing will need to be removed so that our workers can access your backyard during excavating. We will notify you a few days in advance so that you can move/store pets and items safely as needed. At this time, we will dig the depth and shape of your pool based on the exact details of the design specs.

3. Plumbing & Equipment
Next, we will install and test plumbing lines. We will pressure test the lines to ensure the hydraulic system is working properly. Our plumbers will work to deliver the safest configuration possible with a high level of craftsmanship guaranteed.

4. Electrical
At this stage, we will install the electrical equipment, including any lighting configurations you choose. Our electrical technicians will need to dig a 6-12” trench from your electric panel to the pool equipment (since the pool’s electrical components will connect to your electricity box near the home). We ask that you mark and/or make known any sprinkler or drip lines to avoid damage. Please also take steps to remove plants or other items that need safeguarding before our crew arrives.

5. Structure & Surface
Reinforced steel rebar provides necessary structure, strength and durability for your pool. After building the frame, our electrical crew will install the wiring and electrical pad. At this time, the interior of the pool will take shape and is smoothed into place. After the shotcrete sets, we will apply your choice of plaster or pebble surface.

6. Hardscape & Decking
At this stage, we will install any hardscaping you requested (e.g. an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, gazebo, custom water features or other amenities) in the design phase. Once these features have been installed, our crew will build the pool deck according to the design.

7. Tile
Adding the beautiful waterline tile will have a powerful impact on the unique visual appeal of your new pool. We offer a wide array of tile options for size, style, pattern and color. Six inches of waterline tile will be installed at the top of your swimming pool: three inches below the water, and three inches above the waterline.

8. Interior Finish
After the decorative waterline tile has been installed, the interior finish will be applied. This usually takes 1-2 days, depending on the type of interior finish. Plaster typically takes just one day, while some stone interiors could require two days. You will be notified of the amount of time expected.

9. Clean-Up & Start-Up
After construction is completed, we will make sure your backyard is completely clean and clear. Construction debris will be removed, your fence will be restored to its original appearance and we will tend to any landscaping that was disrupted during the construction process.

Now the fun begins! We will fill your pool, get the equipment running and balance your water chemistry so that the first swim can take place right away.
