The Pool Construction Process

Step 1: Planning and Design

Our journey begins with your vision. We plan your dream pool, secure all necessary permits, and ensure that every detail is accounted for.

Step 2: Pool Layout

The layout phase involves marking the ground and outlining the shape of your pool, ensuring it complements your backyard perfectly.

Step 3: Excavation

This is when your backyard starts to transform. We’ll remove soil (and ledges if necessary) to create the space for your future oasis.

Step 4: Form the Pool Shape

Using sturdy forms, we establish the contours of your pool, paving the way for the next phases of construction.

Step 5: Install Steel, Plumbing Lines and Electrical Lines

The skeleton of your pool starts to emerge as we install the steel framework and the necessary plumbing and electrical lines.

Step 6: Shoot Gunite Shell

The shell of your pool is created using a mixture of cement, sand, and water, providing a strong and resilient structure.

Step 7: Install Pool Coping / Pool Tile / Pool Decking

We pay attention to the details, installing beautiful coping, tile, and decking that enhances the aesthetics of your pool.

Step 8: Install Pool Equipment

Your pool’s essential systems are installed, including pumps, filters, and heaters, to ensure it runs efficiently.

Step 9: Plaster the Pool

We apply a smooth, waterproof plaster finish, giving your pool a sleek and inviting look.

Step 10: Fill Pool with Water

The culmination of our process is filling your pool with water and balancing it with the appropriate pool chemicals. Your backyard oasis is now ready to be enjoyed!


Elite Custom Pools & Landscape Design

When it comes to crafting the perfect outdoor oasis, it’s about much more than just building a pool – it’s about integrating your pool seamlessly into a cohesive and engaging landscape design. At PDX Pools, we are not only pool construction experts, but also seasoned landscape architects. We believe that your pool should be a harmonious part of a bigger picture – your complete backyard.

Our design approach is rooted in a deep understanding of the natural environment and how best to complement it with human-made structures. Whether you have a sprawling lawn or a compact backyard, we can create a design that maximizes your space and brings your vision to life. From the selection of plants and trees to the layout of pathways and patios, every detail is meticulously planned and executed to create a balanced and inviting outdoor space.

Our designs take into account the unique lifestyle and preferences of each client. Are you a fitness enthusiast desiring a lap pool or perhaps you yearn for a calming spa area for relaxation?
