Pool Interior Re-Plaster / Refinishing
If the interior finish of the pool is looking worn, it’s probably because you have a plaster or Marcite finish. These finishes were common 15 years ago, but they’ve been completely replaced in the last few years by the new long-lasting and beautifully colored aggregate finishes. These new finishes last 2 to 10 times longer than the old Marcite finishes, and with different colored and sized pebbles or aggregates, we can create any color and texture you want. Some people like the feel of the regular pebble finish. Others like the extra smoothness of polished marble or quartz aggregate finishes. Either way, you’ll get a new pool interior that is prettier and much longer lasting than ever before.
Tile Repair / Replacement
Tile lifting and cracks in tile or cement are commonly just “patched or replaced” by inexperienced pool contractors. But this is a mistake. A crack is a sign of a construction defect such as faulty material, faulty application, or the absence of proper control joints. Whatever it is, it must be diagnosed and corrected at the source. Otherwise, the problems will continue to haunt you for years to come.
Deck repair / replacement
Dollar for dollar, the installation of a paver deck will make a more dramatic impact than any other change or upgrade you can think of, and if cracked cement has been a problem, our pavers will eliminate that problem forever.
Money-Saving, Energy-Saving Upgrades
The industry has been working hard to develop more cost-efficient pumps, filters, lights, heaters and control systems. Altogether, today’s swimming pools use about 60% less energy than they did 20 years ago.
1. Variable speed pumps
These new variable speed pumps use 64% less electricity than single speed pumps. They run longer at low cost, keeping pool water cleaner for less money.
2. LED Lights
New LED lights use only 1/5 the electricity of the old halogen lamps. The IntelliBrite® automated color-changing lights feature LED technology. Individual colored LEDs are mixed and matched to achieve a vibrant spectrum of colors. These combinations are power sequenced to illuminate and cycle through colors at varying speeds, and in different sequences of color. Combined with a custom reflector and unique lens design, the IntelliBrite offers super efficiency while being the brightest yet most energy efficient underwater LED light available.
3. New Automation Systems
With the new automation systems, today’s pools practically take care of themselves! Perhaps the single greatest breakthrough for commercial pool operations is the new pH / ORP control system. Much more than a simple chlorinator, this system monitors the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of the water and the pH. It then automatically adjusts the settings on the chlorinator and the acid-control system to keep your chemicals in balance. What was once a daily chore can now be checked once a month!
4. Automatic covers & Solar blankets
- One button keep kids, critters and debris out of the pool
- Helps retain the heat, so the heater works less.
- Also reduces chemical usage
Make Your Swimming Pool Practically Maintenance-Free
Today’s Pools Practically Take Care of Themselves!
New breakthroughs have taken the drudgery out of swimming pool ownership. From automatic chemical maintenance systems to robotic and Infloor cleaning, your pool can be practically maintenance-free
- Automation systems with remote control let you check the water, and turn lights and features on and off without ever going outside.
- “In-Floor” nozzles will self-clean the pool automatically every day.
- Pebble interiors last twice as long as the old plaster finishes.
- Electric Pool Covers keep dirt (and children) out of the pool.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Our Work Brings Great Reviews
“They build a gorgeous pool. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I came very close to working with another vendor as I did not think I could afford a quality Gunite pool. I quickly made the switch as SSG worked with me to customize a pool within my price range. Best decision I made and best pool ever! I am very happy with my decision”
– Susan L. | Facebook Review
“These folks did a great job building and finishing our pool. We also needed them to move the equipment after adding an outbuilding, which they did on time and on budget and without complaining! The service people are friendly, punctual, and very professional. Overall, an excellent customer experience.”
