How I Operate

I want to include this.  I hate losing bids over money, and want you to know how I operate.

1) For the base of the pool I use 3/8 clean limestone chips.  It’s expensive but is the best. It allows any ground water to move through it and it locks in place and compacts very well.  For the sides of the pool on level areas I use sand, it’s 100% compacted down along  side the pool where you can’t easily get with a compacter/tamper. In areas that are more sloped, I use a rough edge gravel.  It locks in place, not allowing any horizontal movement.

2) I use 2” flex pipe (I don’t cut corners with 1-1/2, 2 inch has more flow and greater efficiency). I come out of the ground at the equipment pad with schedule 40 PVC. It looks more professional than flex for above ground where you don’t need flex to withstand freeze/thaw of the ground.  I use primer and clear primer at the pump.  Cleaner looking joints that don’t leak!

3) Leveling gets its own bullet point.  It’s critical that the pool is leveled correctly.  I’m OCD about this, the industry standard is 1” variance.  My standard is near zero, water doesn’t lie, you don’t want 6 inches of reveal at one end and 8 inches at the other end. Enough said.

Additionally, I live in Waukee, only a few miles from you – we may belong to the same church even.  I practice best practices on everything.  I don’t do anything in your back yard that I wouldn’t do in mine.  When I order the drum for auto covers I order the extra reinforced drum that costs more.  I don’t up charge or even bring this up to clients.  I make sure that the wires for the lights are wrapped in conduit, so that if a light ever went out, a new wire/light could be pulled through.  If I hit your gutter with my dump truck 😉 I call my gutter guy and get it replaced, ASAP (kind of joke but kinda not as it just happened).  When my concrete guys are doing concrete, I’m there looking over their shoulder making sure it’s done right.  I put an abundance of rebar in the concrete, every three feet to be exact (it’s not required in sidewalks, driveways or pool decks). I use a licensed electrician that knows the importance of grounding your pool properly.  I have kids too.  The list goes on, and on, I could spends days going over details that are important to me and should be to you.

Furthermore, if I’m doing your pool, it’s me doing your pool, not like some companies that send their crew of jackasses out to install your pool.  Unless it rains or it’s Sunday, I personally will be there working on your pool.  (But I will be there Sunday or in the rain if it effects delivering a first rate product).

Thank you,
