experience complete peace of mind every step of the way

Phase One: 1-3 weeks


Let’s Meet
Personal contact is important to us at PAX. You can expect a prompt response to your inquiry, followed by a personalized, on-site consultation. We gather information from surveys and county records and combine that information with our walk-through of the property to develop a thorough site assessment.

Our expert team will meet with you to learn about your vision, preferences, and budget. We’ll discuss everything from the size of the pool and its design features, to the impact on the existing landscaping in your yard. We listen first – and then apply our expertise to your dreams for your new pool and backyard.
Designing Your Dream Pool
There are no cookie-cutter designs here at PAX! You’re included throughout the design phase while we turn your dreams into specific designs that make the most out of your budget. Although not as exciting as the jump rocks you’re picturing, rest assured that we take time to evaluate the terrain, soil conditions, and other potential challenges to ensure your proposal accounts for proper grading, drainage, and structural integrity.

You’ll be able to visualize your backyard transformation with our 3D photo-realistic CAD design of pool dimensions, building materials, special features, and landscaping. Your proposal includes detailed cost and timeline estimates, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
Earning Your Stamp of Approval

We encourage open communication during this phase. Our clients have the opportunity to review the initial design proposal, request revisions, and ensure that the final design aligns perfectly with their vision. Once approved, we move forward to the construction phase.

Phase Two: 6-12 weeks


Permits and Engineering
Details matter. PAX takes care of all permitting and regulatory approvals on your behalf. Our team is well versed in local building codes and works diligently to secure the required authorizations, ensuring a smooth and compliant construction process.

Staying on track with project timelines begins with doing the detail work up front. Your PAX dashboard tracks project milestones right from the start and keeps you in the loop until the project is complete.
It’s so exciting to see the heavy equipment arrive! Be sure to commemorate this day with pictures! Along with the equipment, we bring years of construction experience to your pool build. You can expect us to carefully excavate the site as we create the foundation for your pool.

The pool shell is constructed using high-quality materials, ensuring durability and longevity. Our construction team pays meticulous attention to detail – from the rebar and gunite that give your pool its shape, to the plumbing and electrical powering the technology behind your pool.
Crafting Custom Features
Your pool is really taking shape now! Watch our craftsmen expertly create the coping and surrounding area with your custom material selections. You’ll love seeing the colors come to life – whether tile, stone, or slate – around your pool. That waterfall or tanning ledge you envisioned has become a reality. We’ll also finish out the landscaping and hardscaping surrounding your pool. Then it’s time to shoot the plaster and fill the pool!

Phase Three: 1-2 weeks


Quality Assurance and Safety Inspections
Before handing over the completed pool, our team conducts a thorough quality assurance check to ensure that every detail of the design and technology meets your expectations. Whether you’ve chosen a security net across the pool or motion and splash detectors, we’ll also make sure your pool’s safety features are fully functional.
PAX Pool School
When the job is done, we’ll take you through our PAX Pool School—a complete walk-through where we take time to explain its features and answer all of your questions about operating, cleaning, and maintaining your new swimming pool so you can enjoy it for years to come!
