Step 1: Decide on the size, shape and location of your pool.
Step 2: Signing of a SPASA contract. You will need to provide a copy of the Certificate of Title, a block plan showing all existing buildings, Water Board plan of your site showing mains and any easements and a soil test.
Step 3: Alpine to supply structural engineers drawings and apply for Home Owners Warranty Insurance.
Step 4: Lodgement and approval of your Building Permit.
Up until this point the timeline is approximately 4-6 weeks.
Step 5: Excavation of the site (this will occur within 2 weeks of us receiving your building permit), followed by steel work, plumbing and the spraying of concrete. This step is approximately 7-10 days. Now your pool shell is complete!
Step 6: Installation of equipment, solar heating, waterline tiling, laying of coping and landscaping.
Step 7: Pool fencing installed and compliant before the pool can be filled.
Step 8: Building inspection.
Step 9: Interior complete and pool filled.
Step 10: Alpine handover – we will show you how to use and maintain your equipment and maintain your pool water.

Landscaping and paving
Alpine can arrange these to suit your pool area and compliment the look of your new pool.
Alpine have chosen to only build concrete pools. Why?
One of the best things about choosing to build a concrete pool is that concrete is structurally sound and built to engineers specifications. Concrete pools allow you to build to any shape and size that will suit your environment and the most difficult situations. Steel reinforced concrete is the basis of your new pool, compliant with engineers drawings. They can even be constructed out of the ground if necessary. With concrete, you are able to add other features, including split levels, swim outs or walk-in entries, islands, rock pockets, cantilevered walkways, water features, waterfalls and your choice of interior finishes and colours. Some of the world’s oldest surviving swimming pools and existing structures are made from concrete – THINK ROME!
Shapes and sizes
One of the best advantages about a concrete pools is that it can be any shape or size you want – only dependant on your imagination and the size of your yard! We encourage you to think about not just the immediate future of your pool but its on-going life-span. Maybe there will be more kids using it down the track or maybe you will want it more for exercise in the future. Thinking about these things now will help you on your way to the perfect pool to fit your lifestyle now and in the future.
A big part of your perfect pool is its surroundings. Alpine helps you in every part of the planning, including paving, plants, pool fencing, water features, lighting and can arrange these to suit the look of your new pool.
Alpine can assist in the regular maintenance of your pool by providing a fully trained professional to regularly service and maintain it. Regular services can be fortnightly, monthly, bi-monthly or at request.
