CONSTRUCTION INFORMATION SHEET
Dear Customer:
After all necessary financing, and notification of financial approval to our office, we submit plans and specifications to the city to obtain a building permit. If you live on leasehold land, we submit plans to th lessor for their approval before construction.

BUILDING PERMIT
The permit and lease approval are turned over to our construction superintendent, who schedules construction.

LAYOUT
During the layout of the pool, we would like you or your representative present to approve the location and shape of the pool.

EXCAVATION
This is a dusty and noisy phase, but it will normally last only one or two days depending upon soil conditions.

STEEL REINFORCING
Steel is inter-tied throughout the pool and plumbing lines are roughed into position. At this time we call for a city inspection.

GUNITE
concrete is pneumatically applied to the steel to form the pool shell. This is normally completed in a day but may vary somewhat due to the delivery schedule of the ready-mix concrete. At this time it is important that you assisit us by keeping the structure damp with water for the best possible cure.

CLEAN-UP
Unfortunately for everyone involved, we have yet to find a way to avoid disturbing the property and making a mess. While your shell is curing we will clean up this mess.

DECKING
The time involved in this phase depends on the size of the jpb, but will normally require three days to a week.

TILE
A six inch row of ceramic water-line tile is installed, the pool drained and the interior cleaned in preparation for plaster.

EQUIPMENT
Installation of pump and filter takes normally one day.

ELECTRICAL
The electrician is a sub-contractor. he will make contact with you to get to the electrical panel, which sometimes is located in the house.

CHECKLIST
This is an important point in construction. We discuss with you the construction completed to this point, answer any questions and correct any discrepancies.

PLASTER
The plastering of the pool is usually a one day operation. The plasterer will show you how and when to start filling the pool with water. You can find more information on plaster by visiting our Plaster Info Sheet page here on this web site.

FILLING
The time to fill a pool depends upon the size of the pool and water pressure. Fill the pool to halfway up the ceramic tile line at the top of your pool. Please, no swimming until the pool is full and do not use fire hydrant water as the pressure may damage the plaster finish. (Note: Do not turn on the pool light until the pool is filled with water, this will cause your pool light to blow-up!).

START-UP
When the pool is full, please call the office and we will arrange a time with you to start the pool in operation and give you instructions on care and maintenance. The service man will also make a list of anything remaining undone and return it to the construction office for action.

QUESTIONS
If you have any question regarding scheduling of construction on your pool, please call our office at 261-3508. We are open Monday through Friday fom 8:00am to 5:00pm.
