Concrete Pool Deck in Minnesota
A new concrete pool deck will bring your pool back to life again!
When comparing concrete pool decks to the installations of concrete patios or concrete driveways, concrete pool decks require a few extra steps before and after the concrete is placed. Here are some examples:
Install new ground wire
- A new grounding wire is installed around your entire pool or in the section that is being replaced. The ground wire is attached to the metal of your pool structure, all ladder and railing anchors, and all the rebar in the concrete. A licensed electrician is recommended for this process to handle required grounding inspections.
Replace ladder anchors
- The ladder and railing anchors on concrete pool decks must be grounded. Many times the grounding screws are corroded and we cannot properly attach the new grounding wire. New ladder and railing anchors are NOT automatically included in your contract price but can be added.
Replace pool cover anchors
- Upon removal of your old concrete, we map out your existing pool cover anchors if possible to help with re-installation after new concrete is cured. Most times they are not reusable.
- Sealer on concrete becomes slippery when wet. We apply a sealer with a grit additive to make the concrete less slippery.
Expect debris in the pool
- As much as we try to keep all the debris out of the pool, some is to be expected. Most of the debris is concrete dust generated from the removal of the old concrete pool deck as well as small concrete chips from the jack-hammer. It is advised to hire a professional pool cleaner to clean your pool once all the concrete work is finished.
