When building a backyard swimming pool, there are several steps between inception and completion. One of the most important steps is the design process, during which you’ll decide on factors such as the size, shape, and style of your new pool, as well as any custom features you’d like to incorporate. At this phase, working with an experienced pool designer is the key to ensuring that your vision becomes a reality.
At Aqua Pool & Patio, we are proud to have four pool designers on staff: Jason Guilmette, Debbie Madden, Chuck Santanella, and Blaine Grisel. With over 90 years of combined experience in the Connecticut pool industry, this talented team will guide you through the process of planning your dream pool, while listening carefully to your needs and ideas and assisting with the decision-making process.
We specialize in designing and building inground gunite pools, which offer several advantages compared to fiberglass or vinyl pools. In addition to being far more durable and having significantly longer lifespans, gunite pools can be customized to suit virtually any specifications since they are hand-built onsite. For instance, these are just a few examples of the custom design options that you may consider for your pool:
- Attached spa
- 99% Vacuum Free Pool (in-floor cleaning systems)
- Freeform or geometric shapes
- Sun shelves and other types of underwater seating
- Water and/or fire features
When you work with our skilled designers to create your custom gunite pool, the possibilities are nearly endless. If you’re not sure where to start, check out our gallery for some design inspiration.
