Gunite In ground Pools
Gunite pools are the most popular design in much of the United States. To build one of these pools, the construction crew digs a hole, puts the plumbing in place and assembles a framework grid with 3/8-inch steel reinforcing rods (rebar). The rebar rods are spaced about 10 inches apart, and secured together with wire. When the grid is in place, the crew sprays a heavy coating of gunite, a mixture of cement and sand, around the rebar.
The Construction Process
1 Layout: A representative from Designer Properties Pool Builders will meet with you to discuss the planning of your pool. Size, shape and location will be determined by you, along with helpful suggestions from our trained personnel. Once we determine the basics, we physically lay out the design with wooden forms, setting the exact location and shape, along with pool grade elevation.
2 Excavation: A backhoe is used to carefully dig the hole to your design specifications. Normally, barring any inclement weather, this procedure can be accomplished in one day, depending on the size of your structure.
3 Rebar (Steel): Next, the steel reinforcement grid is installed. For the deep end, the rods are placed closer together for extra support. Skimmer units, main drains and wall fittings are then installed, prior to the Gunite application.
4 Gunite Shell: Pre-mixed, dry concrete material (Gunite) mixed with water is not applied through a Gunite hose. Minimal water, along with extreme force, results in an extremely strong compacted concrete structure. Skilled workers then shape the Gunite to form the pool shell to specification. Because of the compression, 8 inches of Gunite is equal to 36 inches of poured concrete
5 Coping: Coping is then installed to cap off and finish the pool beam. Coping is available in a wide variety of styles and colors.
6 Plumbing: Installation of the PVC piping is next. Water from the pool is drawn back to the pump through in-wall surface skimmers, also from the main drain assemblies, located on the floor of the deep end. Water drawn by the pump is then passed through the filter, heater and automatic sanitizer. Cleaned, heated and sanitized water then returns to the pool through the pool wall return fittings.
7 Ceramic Tile: Ceramic tiles are added to the waterline to create an aesthetically pleasing finish. We use only the best tile available.
8 Decking: Walkways vary in style and size, according to your specific needs. Accessories such as diving boards and handrails are then added.
9 Plaster: An interior finish of white crushed marble and white cement is mixed together and is hand troweled on the Gunite surface. Color can be added to the mix to enhance the appearance.
10 Startup: Once the pool is filled, a Designer Properties Pool Builders service technician will install the accessory items not installed previously. he will chemically balance the water and instruct you how to operate and maintain your new pool.
Important laws regarding safety must be considered before choosing your new pool. Specific regulations vary with each community, so be sure you are clear about the letter of the law before installation begins.

You need to remember that, not just because the kitchen is situated outside the house, you can already forget about traditional design principles. You still need to apply the same design principles and function is one of the most important things that you need to consider. One of the best designs when it comes to functionality is the kitchen work triangle. A kitchen work triangle has its sink on one tip of the triangle. The center of the cook top or range is located on another tip of the triangle. The refrigerator is also on the other tip. This might be quite impossible or impractical to achieve this in an outdoor setting depending on your focal point, orientation, and the structures that you already have in your space but whatever the type of layout that you choose to go with there are always good ways to make it functional.
They have been gaining popularity steadily over the last few years due to a selection of high quality, good-looking and easy-to-assemble Contractors arriving on the market. Many people have decided to replace their expensive custom outdoor fireplaces or simply not buy one in the first place since these are so much more affordable. Fountains coming from and highlighting statuary or antique Greek urns make a beautiful, timeless statement. Subtle, yet immensely refreshing misters look and feel great. Laminar flow fountains shoot a stream of water about the thickness of your finger through the air. The water holds together to create a moving, watery tube that will carry the glow of fiber optic lighting. Foaming fountains mix water and air for a frothy, mushroom-head effect. Lots of manufacturers are offering adjustable nozzles to let you control how high and how far your fountain will go.
