Learn about Our Quality Build Process in Plano

As the Blue Science team transitions through each of the phases below, we'll be taking great care to clean up and protect your backyard along the way. We want the creation of your backyard oasis to be a pleasant and stress free experience.

Excavation phase for plano pools

Excavation Phase

Good morning Plano! It's ground breaking day. The Blue Science team will remove any fence panels needed to give access to our excavation equipment. Based on the pool's design, trees, shrubs and other structures within the construction area will be removed as previously discussed with your Plano pool consultant. Your swimming pool design will be staked out in the soil and the yard will be graded. A skid steer will begin digging the hole and repositioning any dirt needed for yard leveling.

Structure creation phase for plano pools

Building the Structure

Digging is complete. Now the walls and floor areas of your swimming pool begin to take shape with our steel bars. Our Plano crew will lay the rebars down hovering a few inches above the soil to ensure they receive a strong bond with the concrete. Additional steel rebars are used for any high stress areas and to support any unique pool features you chose with your Plano design consultant.

Plumbing phase for plano pools

Plumbing Phase

You now have a sound pool shell structure. Appropriate and quality plumbing lines and valves are required to maintain proper water flow and velocity. Your plumbing lines are of two types – return lines which bring fresh water to the pool, and suction lines which pull water back to the pump. Blue Science of Plano uses only the highest rated pumps and drains to ensure your family's safety and to mitigate the possibility of costly underground breakage repairs in the future.

Gunite phase for plano pools

Gunite Phase

Plumbing is complete. Now let's move on to forming your pool shell. Many Plano homeowners are slightly confused by the term "gunite". Gunite is simply a mixture of concrete, sand and water. So it is basically concrete, but technically needs to be called gunite. After the gunite is applied, we will keep the pool shell damp by watering it daily for several days. This aids the curing process. At this stage you'll get to see the foundational shape of your pool for the first time.

Coping and tiling phase for plano pools

Coping & Tile

At this phase you will begin to see some of the unique designs elements you chose come to life. Before applying any tile or coping, the gunite pool shell is smoothed, leveled and sealed. Our Plano pool professionals will hand cut tile and coping pieces to ensure a minimum amount of grout between each joint and to improve the overall aesthetics. Close attention to cosmetic details will be taken to ensure your complete satisfaction with the pool's appearance. 

Electrical installation phase for plano pools

Electrical Phase

Electricians will now install the pool's lights, heaters, pumps, and any other electrical pool features that you requested in your design. A commonly installed pool upgrade for Plano residents is underwater LED lighting, something that makes evening swims more enjoyable. These, for example, would be installed and tested at this phase.

Decking and patio phase for plano pools

Decking Phase

This phase of construction requires special care and expertise by our best pool construction professionals due to the expansive nature of soil in the Plano TX area. Before decking we install your drainage system with PVC pipe. The area around the pool is prepped with gravel and sand to create the foundation for your deck or patio. During the deck curing process expansion joints are created to minimize the risk of cracks. Our pool decks rival that of the best Plano backyard decking and patio companies.

Clean up and prep phase for plano pools

Cleaning & Inspection Phase

Your project manager will begin doing some final inspections of the pool shell, plumbing and equipment and ensure that everything is satisfactory and that all design features are present and functioning. Our Plano pool crew will do a complete interior clean of the pool to prepare for the plaster. Your yard will be cleared of all debris and we will securely reinstall any fence pieces that were removed.

Plastering phase for plano pools

Plaster Phase

We are now ready to apply your desired pool surface. This is where your pool really comes to life visually. Your pool design consultant will be in touch with you to check your color commitment one last time. In the past traditional plaster was most common choice for our Plano customers, today it's quartz and pebble pool finishes. After the surface is smoothed and finished, we'll begin filling your swimming pool with water. The one-time spike to your City of Plano water bill will begin on this day.

Start up phase for plano pools

Swimming Pool Completion

Congratulations, you're now a Plano pool owner! One of our pool technicians will pay you a visit to show you all the switches and controls of your new pool equipment and system. We'll educate you on pool maintenance 101 and discuss any particulars that are unique to your inground swimming pool and backyard.
