Inground Pool Shapes

One of the major decisions to make is the shape of the new inground pool. Will it be modern edges or relaxed curves? This choice will depend on your style, your space and your vision. Peruse our selection of fixed shapes or speak to us about something completely unique for your new backyard oasis.

Vinyl Pool Liners

Pool liners are available in a wide range of colours and patterns. The liner choice will have a great impact on your pool as it will determine the overall look and feel of your pool. Do you prefer a bright aquamarine wave pattern? Or a mosaic with muted hints of green and grey? Browse our selection of liners here.

*Liner graphics are for representation only and we recommend making your selection only after seeing a sample.

Concrete Swimming Pool Finishes

We use River Rok® which is a unique interior pool finish that blends with premium natural pebbles to resemble nature. This rapid advancement of pool technology allows the product to retain its original finish even after years of exposure to nature’s elements. The unique installation process reduces time, equipment costs, and labor while still producing an elegant, slip resistant surface. Take a look at the various options we have for swimming pool finishes.

Optional Customizations

There are so many options that allow you to fully customize your project to be tailored to your needs and vision. Our team can facilitate anything from automation to pergolas! Consider the following options and ask us for more information or any ideas you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Edit

When considering concrete vs. vinyl, you must consider what is important to you? Is it esthetics? Cost? Maintenance?

Concrete pools are ideal for very large or deep designs or if you desire a custom shape or features. Although they take longer to install (3 – 6 months) and have a higher up-front cost, they are extremely durable.

Vinyl pools have a lower up-front cost and can be installed in 4 – 8 weeks. The liner will need to be replaced every 5 – 9 years. Although algae can grow on either pool type, it’s less frequent and less pervasive on a vinyl liner. 

Edit

Many people are interested in a saltwater pool because it won’t hurt or sting your eyes, irritate your skin, damage your hair, fade your swimsuit or cause headaches. However, there’s more to it than just these benefits.

Although the upfront cost is higher for a saltwater system, the cost is actually more effective long term.  A salt chlorine generator breaks dissolved salt into hypochlorous acid and sodium hypochlorite (the sanitizing agents used in chlorine pools). Since salt cells only produce chlorine as needed, a saltwater pool requires much less maintenance and products than a traditional chlorinated pool.

Ultraviolet (UV) pool sanitizers utilize invisible UV light rays to sanitize water. The high intensity light ray destroys algae, bacteria and viruses, as well as some chlorine-resistant parasites. In addition, you will not have any chlorine by-products when using the UV system. These systems are used in 80% of new waterpark facilities that are built.

However, because this technology works by moving the water past UV lamps, it is unlikely a residential pool would circulate quickly enough to the UV light. The germs in the distant end of the pool would have time to grow and multiply before making it to the UV light. So, we recommend adding chlorine to a UV system in a residential pool. The amount of chlorine required is much less than a fully-chlorinated pool.

Edit

After installation, we will give a lesson to you and your family about how to care for your new pool, how to use the equipment, test the water and remind you of some very important water safety. If you have further questions, we are always just a phone call away.

Edit

This really depends on how much you use your spa, but on average we recommend completely draining your hot tub 3 or 4 times per year. In addition, you’ll want to sanitize weekly and regularly use hot tub chemicals for keeping things clean and safe.

Not only is properly cleaning your spa important to the lifespan of the parts and components but also for the safety of anyone that is enjoying it

Edit

When something breaks or goes wrong, it’s important for you to understand who to contact or what to do. Our team will thoroughly review your warranty with you so you are prepared when the unexpected happens.

Edit

When your project is complete, you will have everything you need to enjoy your pool. Our team will ensure your pool is functioning with a pump, filter, heater, sanitization system (chlorinated, salt or UV), proper equipment, solar cover, safety cover and vacuum. We want to make the process as simple as possible for you, so we supply everything you need to get started.

Edit

Yes! Our team not only installs new pools but they are masters of taking existing pools and revitalizing them to levels well beyond their original new condition!

Edit

Algae is always present in the water but an unaddressed bloom will cause the pool to turn green. To avoid algae blooms, keep free chlorine levels between 1.0 – 3.0 ppm and use an algaecide regularly.

Edit

A solar blanket is subjected to many harsh outdoor conditions and is a rather delicate product. The average life expectancy of your solar blanket is 2 – 3 years.

Edit

For a concrete pool, we recommend replastering every 10 – 15 years and acid washing the pool every 3 – 5 years. Because of the porous nature of concrete, algae easily embeds itself and is extremely difficult to remove. We recommend using a steel brush on the entire pool at least once/week to remove any algae.

For a vinyl pool, you will need to replace the liner every 5 – 9 years. To extend the life of your liner, we recommend maintaining proper water chemistry and preventing chemicals from coming in contact with the liner when you add them. Use a soft-bristle brush or sponge once per week to keep dirt and debris from accumulating. Be mindful of items with sharp edges in the pool as they can puncture or tear the liner.
