Pool Building Process

If you’ve never designed a swimming pool, you may wonder how complicated the process is and how long it will take before you can enjoy your dream pool. Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas has decades of experience perfecting our pool building process in Florida. We’ll be with you every step of the way, from the initial planning through the installation.

Pool Planning

During this phase, we’ll sit down with you and discuss what you want from your swimming pool, such as its size and function. Some homeowners may want a pool area to relax in and around, while others want something designed for children or grandchildren can play in.

Through the initial consultation, our team will learn more about your budget and vision. We’ll create a detailed timeline for the construction and installation of the pool, which will prepare you for the process and help you plan your schedule, including a party to celebrate your new swimming pool.

Pool Design

The design process is the most creative part of building a luxury pool. A member of our certified team of design consultants will sit down with you and help map out the details of your new swimming pool. We use PoolStudio software to turn your dreams into reality. The software lets us customize pool shape, tile design and plaster color while implementing all the little details so you can see the finished project before we build it.

During the design phase, you can add all the details and custom features you want, from a pergola and an outdoor kitchen to a rock waterfall and water slide. We’ll work with the software so you can see what features fit into your vision and what alternatives may work better for the ones that don’t.

Pool Construction

The inground pool installation process is the longest part of designing and building but also the most rewarding, as you can see your pool coming together each day.

The construction process involves multiple steps, including:

  • Digging: The first step is to dig a hole for the pool, which will be larger than the finished pool.
  • Lining: Next, we’ll line the hole with steel rebar.
  • Inspections: After lining, a city inspector will inspect the job site and pool plans to ensure the project is up to code.
  • Installation: When your project passes inspection, we’ll install the shell, backfill around the wall and braces and install the plumbing.
  • Patio and deck installation: Next, we’ll grade the area around the pool to prepare for the patio installation, lay the tile and build the deck.

We can work with you to install landscaping, sprinkler systems, fencing and alarms as well. Once everything is installed, we’ll clean up and perform a final inspection. At that point, you can install any electrical equipment, including pumps and heaters. After that, your pool will need to be filled and balanced. We’ll show you how to care for your pool and use the equipment.
