Pool Construction Survey, Mapping & GPR

GPR and Locating Services for Pool Construction, Mapping, and Surveying

Every year you say you’re going to build that pool, especially when the heat index in Dallas hits triple digits.

You can imagine the clear blue oasis calling your name, begging you to take a dip. Visions swim through your head of pool parties and kids enjoying their school break. But the pool remains a fantasy. As much as a pool is an exciting prospect, it is also one of those big projects that can be so daunting to plan that you do not even know where to start.

Good news — the first step is to call Wood Inspection Services. We’ll use our unique expertise to help locate the perfect spot with our underground mapping equipment.

Unlike traditional land survey companies, which only scan the surface and property lines, we go deeper with ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic locating equipment. This technology uses radar pulses to create images up to 100 feet underground. Our technicians have decades of training to interpret these readouts and as such can identify unknown utility lines and even unmarked graves.

Understanding the Value of GPR Surveys and Mapping for Swimming Pool Construction

  • Enhanced Safety: Identify and avoid potential hazards such as utility lines, buried objects, or unstable soil conditions, ensuring a safe construction process.
  • Cost Savings: Prevent unexpected expenses and delays by uncovering hidden obstacles in advance, reducing the need for excavation modifications or repairs.
  • Time Efficiency: Streamline the construction timeline by accurately locating the optimal spot for the pool, avoiding unnecessary excavation or rework.
  • Precise Planning: Obtain detailed underground maps that assist in designing the pool layout, ensuring precise placement and alignment of features.
  • Long-Term Durability: By assessing soil conditions and identifying potential issues, GPR surveys help create a solid foundation for the pool, minimizing future maintenance and repairs.
