You've got options 

There have been consistant developments in the field of swimming pool construction over the years. While we at Pollock Pools have traditionally specialized in the construction of custom concrete swimming pools we have, over the last 30 years adapted to the times and now offer three types of construction options. 
From concrete to vinyl lined to fibreglass swimming pools we do it all at Pollock Pools. If you are wondering what type of pool is the best - the answer is, there isn't one. Each option comes with a set of pros and cons and each suit a set of needs and expectations. 
One thing we know to be certain, is that we stand behind our work - no matter the materials. Our construction and deep understanding of the mechanics, chemistry and internal structures of swimming pools makes any option a wise one.

DURING: OTHER CONSIDERATIONS & DETAILS

EXCAVATION
ACCESS

PERMITS

Prior to the arrival of the excavating equipment a site meeting is held to locate the pool, cabana, spa, beds, decking, fences, etc.  At this time all grades are also finalized. Location of property lines must be provided by the client.  A survey is usually required and if there is any doubt it should be verified by an Ontario Land Surveyor.

The access to the rear yard can often be difficult since it may require the use of adjoining property.  The cooperation of your neighbour or municipality is usually required.  The access must be restored to original grade and condition prior to construction.  If driveways are required to be used for access Pollock Pools will not be held responsible for damage.

Upon completion of permit application and posting of any bonds or deposits a building permit will usually be available in 2-3 weeks.
Building permit fees and time are billed to client.  

SUBCONTRACTORS
FENCING
SOIL & WATER

If we had a crystal ball it would be simple to determine what lies beneath your backyard. Unfortunately underground water, poor soil types, and backfilled lots all require specialized construction techniques.  At this point additional work is estimated and work completed based on time and material.

Although your pool is built entirely by our own staff, electrical work and gas fitting must be completed by certified and licensed tradesmen.  These sub-contractors will need access to your home to complete their work. The cost of these connections is not included in your pool contract.

Your fence must be kept closed and locked at all times.  4 sided fences save lives. Follow directions for the use and storage of pool chemicals, and never mix chemicals. Never leave children unattended, and don’t allow yourself to be distracted.

LANDSCAPING

An integral part of your backyard retreat is the landscaping.  Stonework, waterfalls, plantings, woodworking, decking, and lighting.  These elements are blended to provide a beautiful and relaxing environment to enjoy with family and to entertain friends. All work is completed by our own staff.

COMPLETING YOUR PROJECT  

Before we hand over responsibility for your new pool, an important aspect of the construction process is to ensure our clients are familiar with the safe use of all pool equipment, such as heaters, pumps, filters, pool cleaners, salt chlorine generators, vacuum equipment, lighting, etc.
