When is a good time to install drainage work if you're building a new pool and it's needed ? This question we get from time to time and this photo shows the stage where it's best to have the drainage installed. It can be done at a later stage, even after completion, but once the pool shell is formed and the plumbing is done, then a rough grade by machine is performed to level off the construction area and remove the soil that is needing to be taken off the property from the pool dig. Before the irrigation, it can be done in unison with the irrigation or at least before the paver decking if water needs to be routed away from gutter downspouts that would pour onto a pool deck if no drainage piping is installed. A note : if your home has gutter downspouts that will empty onto the surface of your new pool or patio decking, it can be handled at this point easily, before the pavers are installed.
