Overall, we provide pool construction services that include repairs, renovations and equipment upgrades along with new pool construction for your property.
American Pool is also here to help you get a competitive edge. To stand out from the crowd, your facility may need something more than a traditional rectangular pool.
In fact, you can engage a wider audience with a smart renovation. In recent years, we’ve seen an increase in a sprayground or interactive water feature integration.
If your budget isn’t ready for a full pool renovation, you might think about upgrading your existing equipment to save money on your monthly utilities. A simple item like new LED pool lights can make a big impact: One traditional pool light can use the same amount of energy as 20 LED pool lights. Other upgrades include chemical systems with built-in automation or variable speed motors.
With our in-house pool construction services, American Pool is able to provide a full-service repair and renovation menu to all types of pools. For large projects, we collaborate with our specialty subsidiaries like Pearl Pool Renovation and Specialty Pool and Fountain. Our services also include an After Care program to follow up with pool construction services work.
If you’re thinking about pool construction services or pool renovation services, there are three important acronyms that represent current or upcoming regulations are your facility. Take a moment to read through the information and let your pool professional know if you have any questions.
In 2010, the American’s with Disabilities Act added regulations for swimming pools. Today, many properties have ensured compliance through pool lifts and beach entries. But there are still properties that do not meet these requirements and are vulnerable to lawsuits. Title III of the ADA addresses accommodation requirements for public and some private businesses.
The Virginia Graeme Baker Safety Act was enacted in 2007. This law addresses three areas, including vacuum release, potentially entrapping conditions and equipment and unsupervised children. It requires anti-entrapment devices to be installed and maintained in commercial pools and spas. Do you know if your pool’s main drains are VGB compliant?
An automated external defibrillator or AED is a portable emergency device designed treat sudden cardiac arrest. An AED is used to check a person’s heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock if needed. AEDs are important emergency safety devices for pools and spas. In some areas of the country, pools are required to have AEDs available, as well as AED-trained lifeguards.

American Pool works closely with contractors, manufacturers and municipalities on commercial fountain projects. We also have experience working with Federal, State and local governments. Our most notable accomplishments include our work with the 911 Pentagon memorial and the elephant and otter exhibits at the National Zoo.
More than an architectural element, water features are also great for play. Spraygrounds and spray pads are a hot new item to add to your pool area. Customers like them because they are energy efficient, easily customized and attractive for families with kids of all ages.
We also provide maintenance and repair for existing fountains. Like pools, fountains endure wear and tear due to the changing seasons, lifespan of the equipment and human interaction. An unbalance or maintained fountain will be costly to repair, so ask one of our locations about services for your water feature.

One of the trends in pool construction today is a decorative concrete pool deck. While a pool deck may essentially look like a patio, it has unique requirements for slip resistance, sun reflectivity and orientation.
The capstone on top of the bond beam which finishes the edge around a pool or spa. It may be precast concrete or brick.
Pool tile comes in all sorts of colors and materials. Waterline tile lines the top edge of the pool below the coping stone – this helps keep things clean, since tile is easy to brush. You may also see tile your stairs (transition tile) or creating a mosaic at the bottom of your wading pool (accent tile).
