The Pool Construction Process Explained

Marin Pool Construction Services - initial dig of the area

Designing Your Dream Pool: Our journey begins with understanding your vision. Our design consultation ensures we capture every nuance of what you envision your pool to be. Using state-of-the-art design software and drawing from years of experience, we create a pool design that complements your landscape, meets your functional needs, and fits your aesthetic desires.

Site Evaluation & Preparation: Before any construction begins, our experts conduct a thorough site evaluation to understand the unique challenges and opportunities of your space. We consider soil conditions, accessibility, and local regulations to ensure a smooth construction process. This phase is crucial for tailoring the construction plan to your specific site, ensuring efficiency, and minimizing unforeseen issues.

Permitting & Compliance: Navigating the legal landscape is part of our expertise. We manage all necessary permits and ensure that every aspect of the construction complies with local regulations and safety standards. This meticulous attention to legal details ensures your pool project progresses without delays or legal complications.

Construction Milestones

  • Step #1 Excavation: The first physical step in pool construction is excavating the site. This phase is executed with precision, following the agreed-upon design specifications closely.

  • Step #2 Plumbing & Electrical: Next, we lay the foundation for the pool’s circulation system and electrical wiring. This infrastructure, including filtration, heating, and lighting systems, is crucial for the pool’s functionality.

  • Step #3 Gunite Application: We form the pool shell using gunite, a highly durable material. This pneumatically applied concrete forms the strong structural base of your pool, guaranteeing longevity.

  • Step #4 Tiling & Coping: After the gunite shell is cured, we proceed with tiling and coping, adding aesthetic elements to your pool’s design. Whether it’s waterline tiles, mosaics, or coping stones, this phase brings your pool’s appearance to life.

  • Step #5 Finishing Touches: The final phase includes plastering, landscaping, and installing any additional features like waterfalls or lighting. We ensure every detail aligns with the project’s vision, transforming your backyard into the personal oasis you dreamed of.

New Pool Construction Finishing Options

Plaster: Traditional and timeless, plaster offers a smooth finish in various colors to complement your pool design.

Pebble Finishes: For a natural and durable option, pebble finishes provide a unique aesthetic with added texture and color variety.

Tile: Glass and ceramic tiles offer endless possibilities for customization, allowing for personal touches and intricate designs.

Choosing the Right Finish: Our experts will guide you through selecting the best finish for your pool, considering durability, maintenance, and aesthetic preferences. Each option offers unique benefits, and we’re here to ensure your choice aligns with your vision and lifestyle needs.

Our comprehensive approach to pool construction ensures that every project is a reflection of our commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. From the initial design to the finishing touches, Marin Pool Service is dedicated to bringing your dream pool to life with expertise, precision, and care.

Post-Construction Support: Once construction is complete, we don’t just hand over the keys. Our post-construction support includes thorough cleaning, chemical balancing, and a comprehensive tutorial on pool operation and maintenance. We ensure you’re equipped with the knowledge and tools to enjoy your new pool to the fullest.

Planning Your Pool Construction Investment

Cost and Understanding Your Investment

Building a dream pool is a significant investment in your home’s value and your family’s quality of life. Marin Pool Service is committed to providing transparency and clarity around every aspect of pool construction costs. The total investment is influenced by several factors:

  • Design Complexity: The intricacies of your pool’s design, including any custom features like waterfalls or unique shapes, can affect the overall cost.
  • Materials: The selection of materials for the pool shell, decking, and finishes impacts the price. Options range from standard plasters to luxurious pebble finishes.
  • Size and Depth: The dimensions and depth of your pool dictate the volume of materials and labor required, influencing the cost.
  • Equipment and Features: High-quality, energy-efficient equipment and additional features like lighting, automation systems, and safety covers come at various price points.
  • Landscaping and Extras: Integrating the pool with landscaping, outdoor kitchens, or fire pits completes your backyard oasis but will add to the overall budget.


While Marin Pool Service currently does not offer direct financing options, we are dedicated to helping you plan your pool project within your budget. We recommend consulting with financial institutions or exploring home equity loans and lines of credit as potential avenues for financing your pool construction. Our team is here to provide detailed estimates and work with you to adjust the project scope to meet your financial goals.
