Our Process2022-08-08T21:30:25+00:00


Artistic Pool & Spa has been creating aquatic playgrounds and relaxing retreats since 1982, so our catalog of design ideas is quite extensive. However, more important than what we have built in the past, is what you want us to build for you to enjoy in the future.

Pool construction from start to finish

To accomplish the goal of building your back-yard dream, we set an initial site appointment to spend time in your home and yard. During this visit, we measure the dimensions of your yard, take note of existing environmental and physical challenges, identify sight lines for desirable visual impacts while minimizing equipment clutter and noise and try to capture an idea of your vision and budget. If needed, your sales designer can also direct you in obtaining financing through companies that specialize in pool financing.

After the initial site visit, your sales designer will develop 3D CAD drawings of your vision for your new pool and backyard space to give you a good vision of what it can look like once it is completed. You will have the opportunity to review the design, make alterations and suggestions before the plans are finalized.

Once the design and pricing are finalized, you will be presented with a contract to sign, and a deposit will be required for us to obtain engineering and permits. You will be given a payment schedule based on completion of each phase of construction through the final inspection.

Artistic Pool & Spa will take care of getting all of the appropriate permits before we start the project. Once your project is permitted, we will begin scheduling each phase of construction. Each phase is personally supervised and reviewed by our management staff as well as your sales designer. It takes approximately 45-60 business days from excavation through start-up for a standard project to be completed. A more luxurious and intricate design with custom features can take several months.

The 12 Steps of Construction:

Step 1 – Excavation2018-02-05T21:51:31+00:00

Pool construction phase 1After the initial design phase, it’s time for the work to get started! Our team will start with the layout, giving the excavation team the exact location and measurements for construction. They will begin with the basic digging out of the ground for the depth and length of your pool and establish trenching for the underground utility installation.











Step 2 – Underground Plumbing2018-02-02T00:30:32+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 2 - PlumbingOnce excavation is complete, work begins on the plumbing infrastructure. It is during this phase that all of the plumbing pipes are laid in the trenches and placed in and around the pool.







Step 3 – Set major pool equipment2018-01-04T11:34:53+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 3 - Set EquipmentAfter all of the plumbing is in place, it is time to set the major pool equipment. This is when you will see the pump, filter, heater and skimmer put into place. It is also during this phase of construction that all major valves are set in place and pressurized.







Step 4 – Steel2018-02-02T00:32:11+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 4 - Steel After installing all of the major pool equipment, you will start to see your pool taking shape. The steel frame that will give the pool structure will be installed in preparation for the next phase of construction.








Step 5 – Underground/rough electrical2018-01-04T10:45:46+00:00

Once the steel frame is in place, it is time to focus on the electrical needs of your pool. Electrical conduit will be installed to power the equipment and for the future electrical needs of your pool.

Step 6 – Shotcrete2018-02-02T00:32:55+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 6 - ShotcreteOnce all of the electrical conduit is in place, concrete will be sprayed over the previously installed steel frame. It is this process that builds the actual walls, steps, benches, and other structural elements of your pool.







Step 7 – Tile2018-02-02T00:33:27+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 7 - TileShortly before we are ready to begin the tile installation phase of the build, we will send you a letter notifying you that it’s time to pick out tile or stone. Once we receive your selection, the tile and stone will be delivered to your home and installed.





Step 8 – Finish Electric2018-01-04T11:01:05+00:00

Shortly after the tile is complete, it is time to finish up the electrical work. Pool and spa lights, the remote system, pool panel and all other final electrical equipment will be installed.

Step 9 – Decking2018-02-02T00:34:17+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 9 - DeckingThe decking process happens in two phases. The first phase is the actual deck pour which creates the main structure for the deck. The second phase is the installation of the deck surface. It is during the second phase that the beauty of your new deck truly comes to life.





Step 10 – Gates2018-02-02T00:24:35+00:00

There are numerous building codes in place that homeowners must adhere to when it comes to pool safety. Once the deck is complete, the next step is to install the gates and fencing around your pool to ensure that your home is up to code.

Step 11 – Plaster2018-02-02T00:34:39+00:00

Pool Construction - Step 11 - PlasterThe next step in the construction process is to install the interior finish of your pool. The pool will be filled with water shortly after the plaster is in place.





Step 12 – Start-up2018-02-02T00:38:19+00:00

phase 12 start up photoOnce your pool has passed all final inspections, we will start up all of the equipment to assure that everything is in proper working order.  Furthermore, we will go through your system with you step by step so that you have a basic knowledge of how the equipment works. It’s time to enjoy your backyard oasis!
