New Custom Pool Construction In Sarasota, FL

Pool Excavation

The first step in constructing your new pool is to paint an outline of your pool on the ground to match the layout you have chosen. Then we will build the wooden forms for the excavation crew as they remove the dirt and construct your pool. Most of the dirt will be removed during the excavation. We usually keep some dirt on site for other phases of the construction.

Steel Pool Construction

Next, our steel crew arrives with steel reinforcing bars which they will use to form the rigid skeleton of your pool. You may notice block spacers under the steel. These help to hold the steel above the soil, so it ends up being approximately in the middle of the Gunite. When the steel is complete, it may look like the steps are missing. Don’t worry these will be built when we shoot the Gunite.

Your pool is now ready to be plumbed with high-grade NSF-approved PVC pipes, fittings and equipment. These make up the circulation system to your spa jets, waterfalls and any other special items for your custom pool and spa.

Now comes the process of “shooting the Gunite” to form the hard concrete shell of your pool. Gunite is a mixture of sand and cement that is applied using special tools and pair of custom trucks.

Tile and Coping

The next step in the process is the installation of a six-inch side band of acid-proof, double-fired pool tile. This tile is hand laid and carefully grouted by craftsmen. If you have chosen optional coping, It will be hand laid and grouted on the wall top of your pool. If you have chosen to add picturesque mosaics or rock waterfall features, those will be added at this time as well.

Deck Setup

Now it’s time to form the framework for your deck. The soil will be spread around your pool as necessary, and the base will be laid for the deck material you have chosen. The decking crew will then install the steel rebar grid for our deck.


Using national electric code-approved conduit, wire and bonding, our electrician will carefully make all the electrical connections to your pool. The lights are installed, the pumps are wired and electrical breakers are installed.

Deck Installation

In this step, our decking crew will prepare for whichever type of deck you have chosen. For example, concrete, paver, or travertine.

Pool School

Proper chemical balance is very important for proper maintenance of your pool, so we schedule a pool school on how to operate your pool. After initial balancing, it is the responsibility of the owner to keep up with the pool’s weekly maintenance.
