Swimming Pool Construction & Installation

It’s an exciting day when we break ground on your backyard swimming pool! You’ve gone through all the options with our designers, picked your pool’s size, shape, depth and other features, and now you’re ready to watch them take shape. 

The swimming pools we construct are made of some of the best materials available. Built with either Gunite, or Shotcrete, our pools are built to last a lifetime. Our engineering team has professionally designed a high-tech blend of concrete and steel to form a shell of incredible strength. With this solid foundation, we enhance the shape with a well thought out selection of colors and materials to create a look and feel that is beautiful from the inside-out! A Coral Pool & Spa swimming pool is well known to be unique in design and functionality as well as survive the test of time.

Excavation

When our shovels break ground in your back yard, you know you’re on your way to becoming the proud owner of a swimming pool. If everything goes smoothly and your inground pool design is straightforward, it may be possible for us to finish this step in one day.

Plumbing and Electricity

Once the hole for the pool is dug, we install structural steel inside to reinforce it. At this time, the plumbers and electricians have to do their parts, laying pipes and wiring for the pool’s filtration system as well as lighting, fountains and other features if you opt to get any. At this time, gas piping may also be installed if your pool will be heated with natural gas.

Concrete & Tile

After we install the concrete that is your pool’s shell, we need to give it a few days to cure before we add the tile at the water line, as well as any decorative water features you have planned, such as a rainfall, sheer descent, deck jet, etc. This is the point at which you’ll really be able to envision your finished pool!

Pool Deck

The amount of time it takes to install your pool deck is somewhat dependent on the material you have chosen. Pouring concrete is quick and easy. Laying and fitting together natural stones of different shapes will take longer.

Finish & Fill

These are the last steps in your inground swimming pool installation process. Once we install the finish and allow it to dry, it’s time to fill your inground swimming pool and start enjoying it!

Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)

Swimming pool construction in Silicon Valley is somewhat dependent upon your pool design, but the average is about six to 12 weeks. In Silicon Valley, we don’t have to worry too much about weather impacting your pool construction, so our pool builders should be able to work on your pool installation each weekday. 

If you choose a custom or luxury pool design, however, construction will take longer because your swimming pool will be more complex, rather than a simple rectangle. 

A custom pool is a pool that is designed especially for you, according to your wants and needs, rather than a traditional design that is available to everyone. Your custom pool may be small or large, deep or shallow, round or oblong, or one of many other choices. You may want a shallow pool with a slide for your small children, a plunge pool for solo, post-work relaxation or a pool with water features such as fountains or waterfalls. 

A luxury pool may also encompass some of these features, but luxury pools are generally larger, higher-budget and incorporate many lavish elements, such as a vanishing edge, hot tub, varying levels, a fire pit and more. 

According to HGTV, backyard pools increase home values between 5% and 8%. Although Utah is a four-season climate, the summers are punishingly hot, so pools are especially valued here. Add to that our vanishing lakes and other recreational swimming sources, and a backyard swimming pool becomes even more of a treasure. 

But when you calculate the value of your backyard swimming pool, remember to include the pleasure that you, your family and friends will get from using it. That is invaluable.

Our swimming pool designers are happy to share swimming pool design ideas with you. We consider our amazing swimming pool designs to be the prime motivator that gets our customers excited about getting their own backyard swimming pool.
