What sets Aqua Pool apart

We celebrated our 50th year in business in 2020. We have been working with homeowners in Connecticut as well as Massachusetts and Rhode Island for half a century on building unique pools that provide a welcome respite from our busy lives. We have experienced designers to turn any pool dreams into reality. We like to say, “If you can draw it, we can build it.” We’ll work with you on the design and then take you step-by-step through the process of installing your pool. We also offer maintenance services that will allow you to focus on the fun of owning a pool!

What is Gunite?

Aqua Pool specializes in Gunite, which is sprayed concrete, or shotcrete. Not only is gunite beautiful and durable, it’s the ideal material for customizing a pool. With gunite you can achieve virtually any shape in virtually any size.

How does a self-cleaning pool work?

Aqua Pool & Patio Inc. is the only distributor of Paramount PV-R self-cleaning systems in Connecticut. We’ve been installing Paramount systems for more than 35 years and we believe PV-R is the best product on the market, from the leading manufacturer, Paramount Pool & Spa Products. Built right into the pool shell, Paramount PV-R is engineered to clean your entire pool, including floors, steps, benches, even spas. When not operating, PV-R disappears back into the pool floor, making it virtually invisible. There are no vacuum hoses left floating in the pool. All that’s left is a sparkling clean pool that’s ready to enjoy. In-floor systems are more than highly effective automatic pool cleaners. They also function as high efficiency circulation systems. They are so effective that they have been independently certified to save up to 30% on chemicals and energy for the life of your pool.

The PV-R System

  1. Rotating pop-up cleaning jets are placed in floors, walls, steps, benched and even spas to clean the entire pool. These cleaning jets work together to sweep debris toward the patented debris collection zone.
  2. The MDX-R3 VGB compliant safety drain continually collects large debris directed to it from the patented debris collection zone.
  3. The optional debris containment canister works in conjunction with MDX-R3 drain, it holds large debris for easy deck side removal. Additional safety is achieved with the MVFUSE magnetic vacuum release systems (SVRS).
  4. The SDX VGB high flow safety drain works together with the MDX-R3 to offer an additional layer of anti-entrapment protection. SDX also handles additional suction requirements.
  5. The automatic water valve functions as the brain if the system and direct a powerful flow of water to each set of cleaning jets. The water valve requires no routine maintenance, and is also 100% pressure safe.
