The Pool Construction Process: 

 Step 1: 

Planning and design (obtain and post all required permits)
Planning: It’s the key to a worry-free pool installation. We’ll guide you through obtaining a plot plan, building permit and ensure compliance with any property setback or town regulations. Design is the fun part of the project where we take what's in your imagination and create a pool that's feasible both in terms of logistics and budget. The knowledge we bring to this stage is based on decades of experience and will prove an invaluable resource for a smooth running project.

Step 2: 

Pool layout Location. Location. Location. We’ll advise on proper pool elevation and ensure that the pool is in synchronicity with the overall landscape and environment

Step 3:

 Excavation (ledge removal if necessary)
Bring in the heavy machinery. This is the day we actually break ground and dig the hole. This is typically a 1-2 day process, unless of course we need to remove ledge. Ledge is that under-ground solid rock that requires additional machinery to hammer and blast this layer of rock away to achieve the proper depth.

Step 4: 

Form the pool shape
Once excavation is complete, we’ll use wood stakes, peg-board and flexible wood forms to create the actual shape of the pool to mirror the design set forth in step 1.

Step 5: 

Install steel, plumbing lines and electrical lines
Steel rebar is installed to form the “shell” of your gunite / shotcrete pool. Plumbing lines and electrical lines are installed at this point before the gunite / shotcrete shell is formed. 

Step 6: 

Shoot gunite / shotcrete shell
Now, we skillfully spray the gunite / shotcrete concrete mix into the steel pool structure to form the shell of your pool. Once the gunite /shotcrete is perfectly laid down, we’ll need to keep it wet by hosing it down 1-2 times per day to ensure a slow curing process. 

Step 7: 

Install pool coping / pool tile / pool decking
After the gunite / shotcrete has properly set, we’ll arrive with the materials and options you chose in the design phase and begin installation.

Step 8:

 Install pool equipment
At the heart of every pool is plumbing and filtration. This is the time when we’ll install and connect the plumbing and electrical systems.

Step 9: 

Plaster the pool
All fittings are placed for lights, pool returns and any additional accessories are installed. Plaster is then applied to the pool interior. If you chose regular plaster, the pool water will be added on the same day. If you chose a pebble finish, the plaster will need a light acid-wash the following day before filling the pool with water.

Step 10: 

Fill pool with water (balance water with pool chemicals)
Finally, the step everyone has anticipated. Start filling your pool for your first swim. Typically average size pool 30 x 15 takes to fill approx 12-24hrs pending your city water pressure. Once your pool is filled,  MSN will provide to help you balance the water with the proper chemicals and with important maintenance information depending which chlorinator system you have. The only thing left now, is to start enjoying your pool with family and friends. 



To see from when we break ground of just dirt, to putting together the frame outline and see the finish at the end and to see the owners face is what makes us (MSN) know that we are making dreams reality and a happy home for owners to enjoy for many many years
