The Swimming Pool Design Process
When building anything - Planning is everything!
Our designers use computer aided drafting systems to develop comprehensive plans across all phases of your project.
The goal is to locate the pool so that it receives the maximum available sunlight during swimming hours. In the conceptual plan considerations are: setbacks from lot lines, primary and secondary focal points, prevailing wind direction, location of walks and patios, filtration system location, drainage and landscaping.
Photo realistic 3D renderings and virtual walkthroughs allow you to relax on your new patio or take a dip in the pool before you decide on a final design.
Structural details are determined by site topography and soil conditions. All our plans receive certified engineering. The structural and site plan are also used to apply for the building permits.
This plan shows the owner and the builder the amount of shallow area and that the plan is in accordance with diving board or slide performance criteria.
Plumbing, Electrical and Layout plan:
The plumbing, electrical and layout plans are the key to the execution of high quality work. The layout plans provide the locations and elevations for structures, patios and walks. With appropriately sized equipment and a plumbing plan we can calculate for the total dynamic head loss; the circulation system is the key to how well the pool will perform. The plumbing and electrical plans also show other trades where lines are buried on site.
The pool heater has the most stringent clearances to conform to. A typical pool equipment system requires a 30amp. sub-panel. Enlarge plan to see equipment list and layout.
