Pool Installation Process
Port St. Lucie, FL

Horizon Pools is your local pool builder serving the Port St. Lucie, FL. and surrounding areas. We value your time and are committed to your project. That’s why we’ve provided our 12-step pool construction process for your understanding and convenience.

Let us build you a new swimming pool! Before we start your project we schedule a pre-construction meeting to discuss the details and possible time frames with your superintendent. That way, you have the chance to meet with your project manager prior to construction beginning.

12 Steps of Pool Construction


The preconstruction step includes finalizing the design, securing the building permit, and making sure the site has been properly prepared.


After permitting, excavation begins and our experienced craftsmen go to work. Your pool will be laid out and any fences, trees or stubs in the way must be hauled away.

Initial Plumbing

Next, the initial plumbing is installed. This includes running the pipes for the filters, the main drains and any passive solar systems.

Steel Framework

Next, the steel reinforcing frameworks in installed. Our steel designs are approved by a certified engineer before this step begins

Concrete Shell

Next, and perhaps the most exciting step, is the application of the concrete. Also known as gunite, the concrete is  pneumatically applied by a trained professional.

Deck Preparation

When the concrete shell is completed, we will level the ground around the pools, remove the wood forms and remove any sod from the areas where the deck will be installed.

Final Plumbing

Now it is time to complete the plumbing work. We will set your equipment in place and complete the plumbing between it and your pool.

Electrical Wiring

Next, we complete the electrical work. If needed, an electrical panel is installed. Then all lights, switches, special features and control  systems will be connected

Installing the Tile

Now it is time to install the tile around the perimeter of the pool. This is also when we will put your new skimmers in place.

Installing the deck

Next, your new deck is installed. This could be pavers, stamped concrete, natural stone or some other custom finish.

Applying the Interior Finish

The pool interior is hand-troughed and water proofed. Then, the final finish is applied. That may be white or colored plaster or  marcite depending on what you ordered.

Pool Startup

Finally, it is time for your pool start-up and pool school. One of our service professionals will schedule a time to meet with you at your new pool.
