Services

Every swimming pool requires services from time to time. Like any system in your home or business, regular attention to needed service is important to keeping your swimming pool functioning properly and safely. While some minor services and regular water testing and adjustments are normally done by the pool owner or a Certified Pool Operator, other maintenance and repairs should be done by a professional pool builder or service. Edwards Pool Construction offers complete pool services for all types of swimming pools, including concrete pools, whether we built them or not.

Our services include:

  • Pool Repairs & Renovation – From re-plastering of concrete pools to repair and maintenance of pumps, filters, heaters, water treatment systems, and other accessories, our pool service contractor is your one-stop source for pool maintenance.
  • Complete Pool Remodeling – When it’s time to turn an old, dingy, leaky, balky concrete swimming pool into a modern aquatic recreational resource, Edwards Pool Construction can handle the entire job.
  • Pool Inspections – A periodic inspection, usually once a year, by an Edwards Pool technician is your best assurance that your pool is in perfect order.

WHAT TO EXPECT
THE GUNITE CONSTRUCTION PHASES

Excavation and Forming

Excavation and forming are the first phases for most residential and commercial projects.  Blueprints and drawings have been approved, Dig-Safe has been contacted, and all permits have been posted. The final location of the pool will have been determined along with final elevation, and dirt trucking will be coordinated. Excavation will commence and the pool perimeter form work constructed.

Structural Steel

The structural steel phase will take one or two days depending on the size of your pool and any additional work required for a raised spa or fountain. This steel cage is the strength that holds the pool structure together. You can also expect to see the floor plumbing starting to take shape prior to this phase of construction.

Shotcrete process

Also called Gunite, this is the process of applying concrete to a structure and commonly used to build or reinforce pools, waterfalls, bridges, tunnels, dams, etc. Gunite is a mixture of cement, rock, and sand which is hydrated and mixed at the site and then sprayed onto contoured and supported surfaces to build a pool. Plaster or pebble is usually applied over the Gunite for texturing.

Plumbing

Plumbing occurs after excavation is complete, and will continue after the steel cage is in place. Once the Gunite shell is shot, the Schedule 40 PVC will be run and the filtration equipment placed. Additional trenching may be required to get the piping from the pool to the filtration equipment, so careful consideration of placement is needed.

Hydraulics

Several variables are considered for precise flow rates through the plumbing systems connected through your pool. Piping size and run, resistance and pump performance are pre-determined for return lines, floor heads, jets, waterfalls, fountains, and other elements.
