Pool Construction

Paradise Aquatics is committed to building you a quality pool that will bring you years of pleasure and add to the value of your home. That's why we've created this rigorous construction process. We’re proud of our product and our company operations, and strive to be the most professional company in the industry.

 

Gunite Pool Construction

More than a gunite swimming pool or spa, a Paradise Aquatics pool is the definition of elegant outdoor living: the pinnacle of design and construction, your pool will blend perfectly with your surrounding environment, transforming your outdoor space into the ultimate oasis ... creating a private destination that will satisfy the most discriminating tastes.

 

Here, no idea is too large, nor any detail is too small; every element is carefully chosen to deliver outstanding performance. At Paradise Aquatics, we work with only the nation’s top suppliers – for lights, automatic controls, filters and pumps, pool heaters and covers – so you can be confident that your gunite swimming pool will provide the utmost in enjoyment for years to come.

 

The Art of Great Design

Your Paradise Aquatics Pool begins with a conversation with Paul McQueen himself. Paul oversees the concept, design and construction of every pool that bears his name.

 

Together, you and Paul will select the best site for the size and shape of the pool and spa you desire: a site that fulfills your vision, as well as all zoning and planning requirements.

 

With your pool style and shape chosen, we then work together to design its surroundings – rather quality patios/decking and elaborate outdoor kitchens to magnificent waterfalls/fountains–ending with an oasis that fits both your life and unique sense of style.

 

Built by Master Craftsmen

What happens from the idea to the final product? Here’s a quick look at our gunite pool construction process:

  • We prepare the site creating a “clean canvas” for our work to begin.
  • We then lay out the design in the desired location to ensure the pool is properly positioned.
  • Our excavation crew, with the help of some heavy equipment and hand tools, digs the hole for the pool.
  • We build the form – in the shape of the pool – to shoot the gunite against.
  • Our plumbers “rough” in the main drains and floor/well returns.
  • We install steel rebar to reinforce the pool’s walls and floor.
  • Our certified gunite nozzle men spray the mixture behind and around the rebar: This is the most critical step in ensuring that your pool will last.
  • We smooth and shape the gunite to perfection.
  • We design a hydraulic system for maximum energy efficiency.
  • We backfill the excavation and install the plumbing system.
  • Our skilled masons build your patio, and then install the pool’s coping and tile, turning your pool into a beautiful showpiece.
  • We complete the work by applying the finish of your choice.

 

Vinyl Liner Pool Construction

 

The Pool Building Process

A Paradise Aquatics custom vinyl liner built pool is the definition of elegant outdoor living. Designed and constructed specifically for you and your family's needs, desires, and surrounding environment, it will transform your outdoor space into the ultimate paradise of your dreams.

 

The Steps to a Masterpiece to Last a Lifetime

Your Paradise Aquatics custom pool begins with a conversation with a member of our team, or Paul McQueen himself. An award winning pool and outdoor living designer, Paul oversees the concept, design and construction of every project Paradise Aquatics performs.

 

Together, we will select the best site for the size and shape of the pool and spa you desire. A pool that fulfills your vision as well as all zoning and planning requirements. While we are the leading designer of free form pools in our area, we are positive there is no shape we cannot create, no style we cannot elevate, no vision we cannot match, no dream we cannot build, so let your imagination take it from there.

 

With your pool style and shape selected, we then design the surrounding architecture from quality patios and decking to magnificent waterfalls, fountains and fencing to end with an aquatic paradise that fits both your life, family, and unique sense of style.
