01

Feasibility study, design and installation

This initial phase, carried out in collaboration with Val-Mar, ensures that your custom project’s plans are designed according to your previously defined wishes and specifications, using the most appropriate technical solutions while complying with your municipality’s regulations and taking into account any constraints on your property. The end product is a custom pool – your pool.

The installation of your pool should be studied taking into account several criteria: soil quality, sunshine, prevailing winds, plant environment, privacy in relation to the neighborhood, but also the location of the filtration equipment, to ensure that we enhance the value of your home and your environment by attempting to create a harmonious and aesthetic integration.

02

Approval of the installation plan and the pool’s finishes

Val-Mar will provide you with the full range of choices of colours, materials and finishes…you will also have to approve the swimming pool’s final installation.
