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
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.
