We can provide consultations and design services, and even build a team capable of creating the pool of your dreams wherever you call home. 

You’ve made it this far in life by not settling for the “usual,” so why would you settle for a typical pool design? Dan Ramos is an international award winning designer featured on HGTV, the Travel Channel and in the Wall Street Journal and many design publications worldwide. Let him help you create your perfect pool, and escape to a luxurious oasis right outside your own door.

    Whether you are looking for the latest contemporary design, a classic style, or a lagoon with water park features, our designers are ready to assist you in making your dreams become a reality. Our design experts are the leaders in their field, offering innovative designs that incorporate the latest technology in the swimming pool industry while indulging all of your senses.

    Our design process focuses on your needs, and the outcome will be a one-of-a-kind, unique reflection of you and your space. While we have an excellent portfolio showcasing many different kinds of pools, spas, water features and other design elements, at Distinguished Pools, you will not be picking a pool design out of a book. At the initial consultation, we’ll discuss your ideas, what sort of aesthetic you’d like to achieve, and how you’ll be using your pool. We’ll make suggestions and find examples of elements that you’d like to incorporate into your design. We will do a walk through of your yard and discuss how your ideas will work in your space.

    At the next visit, we’ll present a 3D design of your property and your new pool. The 3D design visualizes your pool in your space, shows you how it will sit in relation to your home and yard, and allows you to see how it will look from any vantage point. If something is not quite right, or needs to be modified after you’ve seen it visualized, we make changes so it’s perfect before construction begins. We encourage you to be actively involved throughout the design and build process because we’re not just building a pool, we’re building your pool.

    New Construction

    Our designers and personal project managers are with you throughout every phase of the project to answer questions and insure that your pool is built to the highest standards. Your Distinguished Pools personal project manager is one of the key elements in an experience you only get when working with the finest builder in the industry. The designer you work with will be actively involved in your project from start to finish. He will not disappear after construction begins. Communication regarding your project will be constant, so you always know what is happening and what is coming next.

    Building a pool is an exciting process, from the dig, shotcrete, through selection and installation of the finish materials (tile and coping), and finally filling and jumping in! With Distinguished Pools’ time tested construction process, you won’t have to worry about construction delays or finishing on time. Everything moves smoothly and efficiently to get you to your finished product faster than the industry standard. Visit the Distinguished Pools Facebook page to follow some of our projects through the construction process.

    Every Distinguished pool is crafted using only the finest materials and finishes. Our construction processes adhere to the highest standards in the industry. Rest assured that your pool will not only be beautiful and fun to use, but will be extremely well constructed and last for years to come.

    Your new Distinguished pool or spa comes with a lifetime structural warranty and a three year parts and labor warranty on all of your pool equipment, even including electronics. Every Distinguished Pool receives a personalized start-up and one month of professional pool cleaning by one of our own Distinguished Pools staff members. Distinguished Pools maintains your pool during this critical time, ensuring that your investment is protected by the best. And while other companies may hand you the phone book when there is a problem, at Distinguished Pools, it’s just a simple call or email to us, and one of our factory-trained service professionals will arrive promptly to make sure your issue is resolved to your satisfaction.


    Remodels can range from the simple – such as resurfacing a pool, to the elaborate, such as reshaping the pool, adding a spa, rock work and water features. Changing tile and coping along with replastering can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of an older pool. Depth conversions to make older pools shallower are also popular.
