Builder's Guide to Swimming Pool Construction

Max Schwartz

Break into the lucrative swimming pool construction business with this practical how-to guide. Here you'll learn how to get the permits and do the surveying, planning and layout for a typical pool, including how to read a soils report.

You’ll read about the excavation, backfill, soil compaction, sand and gravel bedding and drainage requirements, and mechanical systems such as pumps, heaters, filters, skimmers, and solar systems.

Covers underground piping, including drain, supply, and gas; and electrical work, including grounding and supply to breaker, pump, underwater lighting, and heater.

Shows wood and pre-fabricated metal forms for walls, steps, spas, equipment base and diving board base, and how to install bar and mesh steel reinforcement. Covers cast-in-place and sprayed concrete, and modern pool finishes available.

Includes scheduling, and a section on estimating labor, material and equipment costs.
