1. Excavation "The Dig"
Pool excavation is a messy, dirty process that is exciting and unavoidable.
Please be reminded that it is the home owners responsibility to clear any planters, decorative rocks, sprinkler heads/lines etc. that may get in the way of the construction access.
An excavation crew carefully digs, forms and hand-trims your pool in precise accordance with every detail of your swimming pool's design specifications.
The excavation process usually only takes one day; however, it may take longer depending on the soil conditions or unexpected weather delays.
Certain soil conditions may cause what we call a “hard dig” this means the ground in your backyard is too hard for normal digging equipment and the excavation crew must either bring in different equipment or work extra hard to break through. If your yard requires a “hard dig” expect slight delays but don’t stress to much because we will get you back on schedule as fast as we can!
Be aware there are additional cost for a “hard dig”.
Once the dig has been completed note the wooden forms around your swimming pool. They are there to guide us in the rest of our construction, please do not tamper with these wooden forms
Most of the dirt from the excavation process will be removed the day of the excavation. Don't be concerned if some dirt remains, as we will use this for other phases of the construction. If for some reason you would like a portion for landscaping purposes or some other uses, you must let us know where and how much you desire.
Be cautioned that if you ask us to leave the dirt and then you decide you do not want to keep it, there will be an extra charge to bring the truck back to remove it.
Congratulations! You are well on your way to a new & beautiful pool…
