SWIMMING POOL CONSTRUCTION PROCESS     (949)874-0187

While every custom built pool is different, the design and building process generally remains the same. Here's what you can expect after you contact EM Landscape Pools and Spas:

  • 1. One of our expert designers will visit you at your home
  • We'll gather information about what you want to accomplish: the way you want your outdoor living space to look like; how the pool will be used, etc. Then we'll measure the yard, consider the location for sunlight and usability, and make sure that you understand all of the available options. In this initial consultation, we listen carefully so that we can seamlessly incorporate your dreams and your vision into an elegant and functional backyard oasis.

  • 2. Within a few weeks, your custom design will be completed and ready for review
  • You'll also be able to discuss and decide on further options, details, and features.

  • 3. Getting the permit
  • Once you decide to move forward, we can immediately begin to schedule the building phase of your new pool by beginning with the permitting process.

  • 4. We will begin to engineer your custom pool with meticulous detail
  • We will start by grading and excavating, or digging out the site. We'll also perform any necessary demolition during this phase. After the site has been excavated, we will install the reinforcing steel, or rebar. Then all of the plumbing and electrical work will be completed before the pool goes through an initial inspection.

  • 5. Your pool will be sprayed with a concrete-like substance known as shotcrete
  • This usually takes between one and two weeks to cure, or dry. After the shotcrete has cured, we will install the coping and tile.

  • 6. We will complete all of the masonry work
  • If you have chosen to include features like custom walls, rock features, waterfalls, a barbeque or a fireplace, they will be built or installed during this phase of construction.

  • 7. The deck of your pool will be installed
  • It usually takes two weeks to prepare the deck and one week to install the decking. Then your pool will go through another inspection. Any options such as gates, fences, or alarms will also be installed here.

  • 8. Finally, your pool will be plastered
  • This is one of the last phases of construction. It will usually only take one day to plaster your pool.

  • 9. Fill your new pool with water
  • When the plaster phase is complete, your pool will finally be ready to be filled with water.

  • 10. Have fun!
  • This is just the beginning of your own backyard vacation...
