About Pool Tron

Pool Tron has been designing and building pools since 1977, and our expertise in concrete construction reaches back even longer. We have refined techniques in concrete pool construction that create structures that are more durable and better resist settling and weather effects. Our wet shotcrete process is a significant advantage. It requires better-trained, more-experienced applicators, but it delivers significantly higher and more consistent long-term strength throughout the pool structure. All Pool Tron pools gain unmatched strength and durability from our unique double-cage-steel reinforcement technology. This ensures maximum strength to better manage forces from both sides of the pool wall. Pool Tron maintains all the critical skills for pool design and construction in-house. With the exception of plastering, all of our work is performed by year-round professionals, not subcontractors, to assure that the highest standards are met.

10 Reason why Pool Tron is a better choice

  1. A+ Rating with the BBB
  2. Certified Service Professional® (CSP®)
  3. Experience - building pools since 1977; concrete experts before that so no one knows/understands the process of shotcrete pool construction better than Pool Tron
  4. Expertise - In addition to concrete construction expertise (featuring double-cage-steel reinforcement technology) each Pool Tron construction staff member has been trained in a very specific construction area/process and is a master at that skill vs. generalists that are a “jack of all trades and a master of none”. On-staff licensed architect directs site survey and ensures proper engineering, drainage, and layout and makes regular visits to the site while a family member oversees every phase of construction
  5. Highest standards of quality control - all work (except for plastering) is done by year-round, skilled professionals, not subcontractors who days/weeks earlier, were plucked from entirely unrelated professions and lack the expertise to even be on the jobsite.
  6. Impeccable reputation - numerous design awards and recognitions from APSP and Master Pools Guild, an invitation only global network of elite custom pool builders (member since 1998)
  7. Family owned and operated so you are always working with a company owner
  8. Master Pool Code of Ethics (self-explanatory)
  9. Continuous learning/education - ongoing access to the brightest and most creative minds in advanced construction and swimming pool design plus sharing of information and education via Master Pool Guild membership
  10. Member of APSP, Genesis 3, Master Pool Guild.
