Why not upgrade your pool patio this off-season? This is the time to upgrade and update your swimming pool patio. Then, when summer swim season rolls around, you will have brand new poolside space to enjoy with family and friends.

Design An Outdoor Kitchen

Designing An Outside Kitchen

Having decided to create your own personal ‘staycation’ spot in your back yard, it’s time to begin that design. Location for your outside kitchen is everything. Where do you want your kitchen, and how will people get to it?

What do you want for your kitchen? You can choose anything as simple as a tiki hut with a table, along with a gas or charcoal grill, and small refrigerator to something as complex as a full built in ‘seasonal’ porch that is your outdoor kitchen space, with a nice two-sided bar, a large gas grill, or perhaps a full built-in grill that has oven space included. The ideas for designing your outside kitchen are almost endless.

LED Lighting

Changing The LED Lights In Your Pool

If your swimming pool is lighted, chances are it is lit with LED lighting. The reason LED lighting is the lighting of choice for swimming pool contractors to install is that they bulbs burn cool and last for thousands of hours, meaning you won’t have to change them as frequently.

Many pool owners will call their pool contractor to change the bulbs, but if you’re a do-it-yourselfer you can take this project on yourself. The  reason many pool owners call on a pool professional is because of the fact that you’re dealing with both water and electricity and it can be a harmful combination. Continue Reading

Pool Construction

Swimming Pool Construction Checklist

An in-ground swimming pool is a large investment. Your personality, style and budget are all things to consider when talking with one of our professionals at Hawaiian Pool Builders. Using this swimming pool construction checklist will help guide you along the journey.

Location is (almost) everything. Where do you want your pool located? Consider the overall design of your yard and home when deciding where to dig. Our team can assist you with any questions you have with your chosen location.

Understanding where and how your ideas fit into your budget is the next step. Design and type are the first factors to look at. It’s also wise to consider extended warranties and service options.

How will you and your family use your pool? Will it be for relaxation, family and friend gatherings, entertaining, exercise, or any combination of these? When you design your pool it’s important to consider these options. If you are considering add-ons like water treatments and fiber-optic lighting, now is the time.

Site preparation comes first in the physical construction of your pool. Depending on the style and size you choose, this could include excavation and/or forming a steel wall or other types of reinforcement. It could also include adding dirt, gravel or other materials to help smooth the pool floor and sides.

We will then place a liner or add a gunite pool surface. When the interior is complete the lip or cap – known as coping – around the edge of the pool will be added. The electrical and plumbing will then be finalized.

Add water and enjoy. Now you can look around and decide on your landscaping, or a full outdoor kitchen area.

With Hawaiian Pool Builders, you can be assured of professional experience, and superior customer service. We look forward to seeing your design completed, and this short swimming pool construction checklist will help guide you ever step of the way.
