A pool can be a great addition to any home. Before you can enjoy a pool, however, you must undergo an excavation process. In this article, we are going to talk about some of the things you should be aware of before you hire a pool contractor.
The first thing that you should be aware of is that the pool contractor might hit groundwater. When the pool area is being excavated there is a chance that groundwater will be dug up, especially if your pool has a deeper side.
Understand that if this happens the contractor will most likely lay stones down to give the pool a solid base, and help the drainage.
Another thing that you should think about is the removal of all the material that has been dug up. Excavating land is going to bring up a lot of dirt and other materials from the earth. Expect the pool contractor to bring in a dump truck, to bring the dirt and other materials elsewhere.
The last thing that you should be mindful of when getting a pool is that the contractor might hit large rocks. If this happens you need to be prepared for extra machinery to come into play.
