Your backyard will go through a 10-step construction process to convert it from its current condition to the backyard of your dreams. Click on any of the following steps for more details about the process.
The two basic functions of swimming pool plumbing are to circulate and filter the water. The plumbing system in a swimming pool is self-contained and under normal operation does not need city water (except to fill the pool) or the sanitary sewer system (except for backwash).
Skimmers : Skim the surface of the water and remove floating debris. The size and design of the pool will dictate the number of skimmers needed.
Main Drains : Draw water from the floor of the pool for circulation
Returns : Returns water back to the pool from equipment and push debris toward the skimmers.
The system operates in the following manner: a pump pulls water from the main-drain and the skimmer through a leaf trap and into the pump itself. The water is then pushed through the main filter, through the heater (if applicable), and the back into the pool through the returns.
Steel rebar is 40-A615, in accordance with Texas steel grading system.
During the gunite process pool depths, elevations and dimensions are set. Also pool benches and steps are hand shaped and formed.
The concrete swimming pool deck is poured around the pool after tile, stone, coping or brickwork is done. Decking usually takes three days to place. The first day, the area to be decked is formed. The second day an electrical bond inspection is performed by the respective city or county and the deck is poured on the third day in most cases.
Important! A newly plastered pool cures in 10 - 14 days. Landscape debris and dirt that comes into contact with the plaster can leave a stain.
