Design and Construction


Our engineering and pool designs are developed for the the Greater Houston area. We use the best equipment, materials, and building methods to ensure the highest quality workmanship while keeping our prices affordable.

From the beautiful and durable aggregate interior finishes such as Pebble Tec® and Gemstone®, to environmentally friendly and efficient variable speed pumps, we’ve sourced the best materials to ensure that your pool is not only beautiful, but built to last.

To prove this, all of our new pool constructions come with a structural limited lifetime guarantee.

Large or small, luxury or budget each of our pools is custom designed to suit the unique needs and style of our clients.

No Obligation Consultation

Everyones perception of the perfect swimming pool is different, and no two gunite swimming pools are ever the same.  Total Concept Pools will meet with you and discuss all of the options and your specific needs to help design your perfect pool.  Would you like a play depth pool?  Or maybe a beach entry? Options are endless and we're here to help determine the best layout and design for your family.

Designing your pool

We will take measurements, and can customize a swimming pool design to capture your vision and your budget. It normally takes a few days to get a budget back to you with a drawing for approval. Adjustments can be made whether to expand, subtract, add or remove options to stay within budget.

Before construction begins, we paint the outline on your yard. Any changes can be made before precision excavation begins. We also have underground utilities marked, so you can be advised of the cost of any reroutes needed. 

Precision excavation is performed shaping your pool.  We remove any excess dirt from your property at this time.

Every pool we build has a minimum #3 rebar on 8" centers with 4 bar box beam of #4 rebar.  Depending upon the design and slope of your yard sometimes footers and piers are required.

Plumbing and Electrical Rough
Plumbing runs are installed prior to gunite to allow good circulation for a clean and easy to maintain pool.  Electrical conduit and light housing is installed at this time as well.


Gunite is then shot to a minimum of 12" at the beam, 8" on coves & 6" on sides and floor. The gunite requires 7 days to properly cure and should be sprayed with water by the homeowner at least twice daily.

Tile and Coping
Customize your backyard retreat with a wide variety of tile and coping products. We can show you options that range from standard brick to flagstone and travertine.

Equipment Installation
All of the mechanical equipment, plumbing, lights, and controls are installed.

The deck is formed as designed in the layout, and the installation of the deck begins.  With many options available to you such as flagstone, peagravel, stamped concrete, Sundeck, etc.
