Pool Construction

Thinking about putting in a swimming pool but don’t know where to start? Start with the experts! Outdoor Innovations has been designing and building swimming pool projects since our beginning. We are experts in the residential in-ground pool building process and can help with all aspects from levelling an area, installing the pool, and putting in the last piece of sod to finish the yard.


The pool construction process entails:


We begin by working with the customer to put together an initial landscape design, and that typically goes through a few revisions before the final layout is decided. Then, we can get a budget dialed in too.


After all the relevant permits are acquired, the excavation begins. Our larger equipment will be in and out of your property for a couple days as we dig out the initial structure of the pool.


Next, we start on the steel installation, where our experts form steel beams to the shape of the pool. Plumbing and electric features are also installed for the eventual water circulation system and lighting if it’s included.


After those are all installed, we begin to place and sculpt the concrete. It will be shaped to form the shape of the pool and the steps. A special finish will also be applied to the floor and walls for durability.


Once the pool starts to set, we begin on tiling. Depending on the design, there might be some tiling included in the interior concrete. Otherwise, this time is typically for installing the pool deck.


Final steps include installing lights, testing the circulation system, and last clean-up before filling up the pool with whatever water the customer has requested. We will also place sod when needed. Overall, a typical in-ground pool installation takes around 6-12 weeks.

While in the planning stage, there are many common pool features and add-ons to your landscaping to consider.
