Pools & Spas
New England In Ground Pool Builders
Welcome to Yankee Pools, a in ground pool builder that meets the standards upon which the foundations of New England are rooted. The integrity of our designers and craftsmen has been foremost at Yankee since its inception in 1982.
Yankee Pools has developed a highly skilled team of craftsmen that are involved through every step of construction. This close knit group performs extraordinarily well together, crafting the various pools, spas, and water features upon which Yankee maintains its reputation of quality, prompt construction practices, and diligent attention to detail, even after the pool is completed.
Yankee Pools owns and operates all of our own equipment. This leaves other contractors out of the equation. Being directly involved in almost every step of the building process makes our staff much more knowledgeable, and able to answer your questions as they arise.
Being strictly a gunite pool builder, we believe in the reliability of gunite pools and their superior ability to weather all that New England can toss in our direction. Gunite is applied through a high-pressure nozzle, resulting in a long lasting concrete structure with a shape that can be classically simple or seductively ornate.
Remember, gunite pools are the only dog friendly pools.
The Yankee Pools Process
The process begins when you either give us a call or send an e-mail. A member of the design team will contact you to set an initial meeting. During this meeting, the designer will discuss with you the various options and explore with you your ideas for the pool. They will go over with you available options in areas such as filtration, chlorine generation, cleaning sytems, automation, covers, lighting, decking, and plaster colors. Next, a design will be submitted to you for approval, and we continue to meet with you to get a plan you are satisfied with.
