East Windsor, Conn. — For the fifth consecutive year, Pool and Spa News has recognized East Windsor, Conn.-based Aqua Pool and Patio as one of the top 50 pool builders in the U.S. On the 2016 edition of the list, Aqua Pool and Patio ranked number one in the Northeast and number 14 nationally, affirming its status as an industry leader. Pool and Spa News is one of the pool industry’s most respected news outlets, and many companies vie for a coveted spot on this annual list.

In naming the country’s top 50 pool builders, Pool and Spa News takes a comprehensive approach to scoring. Builders are ranked based on five different criteria: residential construction revenue, employee training and retention, involvement in organizations both within and outside of the industry, philanthropic community involvement, and an active and engaging web presence, including social media. While revenue is the most heavily weighted factor, the other four criteria were incorporated in recent years as a way to recognize the many elements that contribute to a company’s success among its customers, community and the industry as a whole.

Aqua Pool’s inclusion among this elite group of pool builders recognizes the company’s commitment to its 55-member staff. “We believe that training and developing our employees is a worthwhile investment,” said Ron Giannamore, owner and president of Aqua Pool. “Some businesses worry that they will pay to educate their people, only to lose them to competitors. But we would rather take that risk than have employees on staff who are not living up to their potential.”

Aqua Pool’s commitment to its employees consistently yields positive results for clients. “I wanted to let you know how favorably impressed I am with not only the work that was done, but with the people who did that work,” said Mary, a recent Aqua Pool client. “From the very first call I made about installation, I have been treated with respect and kindness. Everyone, and I mean everyone, has been friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. There is something to be said for knowing your business and doing it well.”

Aqua Pool and Patio has been family owned and operated since 1970. Many employees have worked for the company for 20-30 years, creating an experienced team that is committed to quality work, innovation and customer satisfaction.
