Essig Pools was founded by Dan Essig in 1981. Since then we’ve delighted more than 5,000 homeowners with beautiful new pools. And every one of those pools was built the way a pool ought to be built, with a lifetime structural warranty.
You see, since the day we first opened our doors, it’s been our goal to build a better swimming pool – A pool that we can be proud of. That’s why we created the “Smart Pool™.” The Smart Pool By Essig includes all the features a great pool should have to be beautiful, safe, and easy to maintain. The Smart Pool has 30% more steel and up to 50% thicker walls than required by South Florida building codes. And it’s built with Shotcrete, not Gunite, so it’s stronger and harder than your average pool, and guaranteed to never leak.
Our desire to be a leader in the industry is what drove us to join Aquatech, an exclusive society of high-integrity pool builders. Working with other top-notch pool builders from around the country, the Aquatech programs keep us on the cutting edge of pool engineering and design. Less than 1% of the world’s pool builders have been approved to join the ranks of the Aquatech Society. We’re very proud to be part of the elite Aquatech team.
We are accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and members of the Florida Swimming Pool Association, Associated Swimming Pool Industries Group, and United Aqua Group. Our founder Dan Essig has been active with the Associated Swimming Pool Industries and the National Spa and Pool Institute / APSP for more than 30 years, including one year as president of both associations. Dan was chairman of the ASPI ethics committee for six years, and APSP Builder’s Council for four years. Dan also taught pool construction at Miami-Dade Community College.
Essig Pools has received more than 200 awards and accolades from industry experts and organizations. We received the exceedingly rare “Aqua 100 Hall Of Fame” award, which means we were chosen as a “Top 100 Builder” by Aqua Magazine for five consecutive years. We’ve also been selected five times as winner of The Industry Choice Awards for Business Excellence and named one of the Top 50 Builders in the Country for several years.
