Design Process

Step 1 - Initial (FREE) Pool Consultation and Design

Our construction process begins with a friendly in-home consultation, where we really take the time to understand your unique needs, lifestyle, and budget. Together, we’ll explore a variety of options (including our base pools) to turn your backyard into the oasis of your dreams.

Our talented team of designers will then create a personalized 3D rendering of your pool design, so you can see the final result before we even start building.

Step 2 - Site prep and layout

Ensuring a smooth start begins with careful job planning. We will provide you with advanced notice before our crews arrive. Our team will meticulously prepare your yard for the swimming pool construction process, including measuring, laying out, and preparing permits. Rest assured, we will take every precaution to safeguard your existing landscaping and outdoor features. You can trust with a swimming pool contractor like Granite Pools your property is in capable hands.

Step 3 - Excavation

When it comes to excavating your pool and spa area, we take extra care to follow our carefully laid out guides and markers. This ensures that you’ll have a solid foundation and proper wall support. 

We don’t leave this important step to just anybody – we handle it ourselves. It’s usually the favorite part for the family to watch!

Step 4 - Framework, plumbing and electrical

First, we’ll carefully install the support structure for your pool, along with all the plumbing lines and electrical wiring. We’ll even test the stability of the framework and conduct multiple pressure tests on the plumbing to make sure everything is solid. Since we know that you’ll need electricity for everything from the pool equipment to the pool and landscaping lighting, our crew will follow the plans and make sure you have power exactly where you need it.

Step 5 - Surface installation

This is the stage where the pool truly comes to life as our skilled team expertly applies the surface coating of your choice to the framework. You’ll have the opportunity to observe our team as they meticulously spray and smooth the pool, shaping it into its final form.

Step 7 - Finish surface

We are proud to offer a number of NPT swimming pool finishes to choose from. Check out our complete selection on our pool finishes page. This step requires both skill and artistry because it’s what everyone sees and feels when they’re in your pool. It usually takes a day or two, depending on the materials and design. But taking the time to do things the right way has long-term benefits.

Step 8 - Landscaping

As we’re getting closer to finishing up the pool, we can start thinking about making its surroundings even better. If you didn’t know that now do custom landscaping! You can learn more about our landscaping capabilities on our landscaping page but we’re happy to add in some awesome landscaping elements like cool lighting features, decorative rocks, planters, fire pits, or anything else you’ve been thinking about.

Step 9 - Start up

This is where we really shine. We take care of setting up your equipment and making sure your pool has the right chemical balance. We know that this might all be new to you, so we’ll take our time and have multiple sessions over two weeks to train you on how to operate your new pool and answer any questions you have.

Step 10 - Clean up

The final step in the construction process is the cleanup! Before we head out, we make sure to tidy up the work area, going through a thorough inspection of everything we’ve installed or relocated. Our main goal? To give you nothing but the backyard of your dreams.
