This is pool construction - UNFORTUNATELY!

Globally renown Paris, France swimming pool & spa designer and builder, Paolo Benedetti, analyzes the "state of swimming pool construction" in America.

Unfortunately, this is what the world has come to expect... And sadly this is what 99% of the swimming pool industry thinks is an acceptable level of performance...

NOTE: The images below are not from any of our projects. They are images that were provided to me of a vanishing edge pool that was under construction. If your firm is responsible for this negative edge swimming pool project, please contact me.  I'll see that you get the requisite credit you deserve.


I don't mean an assassination - though if this was my pool I would be in the planning stages.

It's all in the execution of the details. I have always said, "It is the things that YOU DON'T SEE that make an exemplary project."  This does not just apply to the finish details.   Many of the details - from the development of construction drawings and documents, establishing elevations, building strong and sturdy forms, geotechnical investigation, engineered plans, correct steel reinforcement installation, proper hydraulics and plumbing practices, correct concrete placement and finishing, waterproofing and a possession of common sense - no one will ever see.  But those hidden details will forecast the eventual success and longevity of a project.
