POOL BACKYARD PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

Pool

1. POOL CONSULTATION

Your individual needs and desires are discussed with one of our Van Dorn Pools and Spas specialists in order to help you select the right pool for you & your family. Once a pool model and size are selected, the backyard planning can begin.

2. BACKYARD PLANNING

At this point, our backyard survey specialists visit your home to determine where the pool will be located. The layout of the pool is marked on the ground.

4. EXCAVATION

The excavation crew will remove the earth from the location of the future pool. Depending on the condition of the site, the removed earth will either be hauled away or spread in the location of your choice.
