What happens during construction?

If the pool you want to build isn’t unique… it should be!

A free onsite consultation to generate a design and quote is the basis for which our process begins. Our sales philosophy »

The onsite meeting allows us to understand what the customer wants to achieve and ensures that we are attuned to the most efficient use of the available space. Our design tips»

Fine details like fence placements, walkways and paved surrounds as well as adjoining structures are absorbed, added and then featured in our 3D design imagery. Bringing your in-ground pool to life in your backyard, from your minds eye and our experience . A like completed design can then be viewed. As we source a completed project – like your proposed works  – so you can feel the size, layout and functionality.

Surface finishes, shapes and outlines are at the disposal of a mouse click – under the guidance of our experience and your wishes.

Showing the excavation

Pool excavation takes up to 3 days to complete

Once a design has been fixed – a quote can be generated for the agreed works.

A fixed price contract (Australian Standards) is used with all costs included and or specified. The only variable charges being for rock excavation and formwork (both standard within the industry).

A signed contract and 5% deposit, allow us to commence full documentation, engineering, draughtsman’s drawings, builders warranty insurance and all relevant permits – including little known  crossing permits as well as fence permits where they are cast-over easements. All this is included within the initial documentation stage.

A site mark-out precedes excavation – with the pool excavation taking up to 3 days to complete. Our contract will include all costs for spoil removal and the full excavation – with the only variable being rock excavation (have alternate pool builders included a fixed price for excavation and not a duplicitous allowance?).

Getting ready for concreting

All the way through the process and beyond you deal with Momentum Pools employees and almost certainly at every stage with Company Director, Dominic (industry veteran of 22 years experience) who runs all site works and in-ground pool consultations (quotes and designs). As a result you get great continuity from dealing with the one person in a centralised process.

Steelfixing / formwork and subsurface drainage are next – with all works carried out by Momentum Pools employees only. We do not use subcontractors as we prefer to control the process with in-house, qualified and fully OHS compliant employees.

Next is primary plumbing with the fitting of all hydraulic lines and cabling of all low voltage light fixtures also occurring at this stage (have alternate pool builders included the running of all low voltage light cables, like we have?)

The concrete pool form installation is the next stage, with industry professionals (Vern’s Concrete Spraying) being employed to do this highly specialised process.

Next comes plumbing and solar installation, with our employees installing all products including multi speed pumps, fully automatic solar systems and automatic testing and dosing chlorinators – all standard items within our contract. All plumbing lines are pressure tested upon installation with trenching dug via a tight access excavator to ensure full depth, out of the way of ready impact damage – from other trades.

Installing the pool plumbing

Tiling and coping (example bluestone coping) are next to be installed, with our qualified staff completing all works. We recommend a fully tiled finish and use Amalfi mosaics for a ceramic tiled finish or Swimple glass tiles for added sparkle. If a plastered finish is what you’re after, waterlines tiles, edge tiles and superfine pebble finish can be arranged.

The final stage is handover and commissioning of the pool – with the offer of ongoing service and maintenance, if required.

Nearly always our pool works include the surround pool paving slab and glass fence.
