Guild Growth

  • The Master Pools Guild was formed in 1962 by a small group of quality independent pool building craftsmen who realized the potential of sharing ideas and pooling their buying power. Pool construction was evolving with the marketplace demanding bigger and better designs than ever before. Over the next forty years Guild members worked together to build and service some of the most beautiful pools and spas in the world – sharing construction techniques and technology of both equipment and water chemistry.
  • Today’s Guild is more than an association of craftsmen – it is a fellowship of lifelong friends where business ideas are shared among confidants.  The technical challenges are even greater today because of the members’ commitment to deliver their clients’ desires.  These often include features and special effects previously considered only at resorts, but now desired for many luxury homes.  Incorporating long curved vanishing edges, creative water features with incredible lighting and special pool and deck finishes are all part of our members’ ongoing performance.  If by chance a client presents a new challenge to a particular member builder, they can always find a resource in the membership who has done it.
  • Most Guild members build commercial pools in addition to custom residential pools. This takes them to another technical and creative level that enhances all of their work. This expertise combined with increasing international membership brings the possibility of providing service to international clients around the globe a closer reality.


  • Generally there is only one Master Pools member builder in an area. Members are carefully selected based on their market position as an elite custom pool builder in their region – with a specialization in custom concrete construction for the majority of their pools.  They must be craftsmen, operating with a strong commitment to high quality, customer service and business ethics.  Membership opportunities sometimes become available due to demographic shifts, but the main expansion of membership will be international in our effort to realize our vision of being a truly global network.
