Any idea you have, we can bring to life. Unlike other pool companies, we don't just sell you the pool, we actually build it! All work is done by Pool Concepts, not sub-contractors. The owner is the builder and will be on site for all phases of construction. This means no delays. We own all of our equipment; we have our own excavation crew, rebar steel crew, masons, electricians, plumbers, shotcrete specialists, plasterers and landscape designers. This helps you save time, money and gives you peace of mind knowing that the job is done the way you want it, when you want it! Of course, weather can be a problem; so early planning is a good idea. It takes anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks from start of construction to finish, depending on what type of pool you choose.

Waterfalls, Fountains & Other Water Features in Central New Jersey, NJ
Our attention to detail is one of the things that sets us apart from other pool builders. We know that your swimming pool should be more than just functional – it should add interest and beauty to your backyard. Incorporating a water feature, such as a waterfall or fountain, into your pool’s design can help accomplish this.
Water features come in many different styles. It’s common to see a raised spa that pours over some type of spillway into the pool below. You might also consider a bubbling fountain rising from a step or shallow pool, water spouts arching water across the pool’s surface, or a dramatic waterfall constructed of rock and surrounded by lush landscaping elements. Any of these unique water features will help transform your Central New Jersey swimming pool into an elegant backyard resort
Central New Jersey, NJ Rock Features and Hardscaping
The use of natural and/or manmade rock can have a dramatic effect on your swimming pool design.

Possibilities for incorporating rock into your Central New Jersey NJ swimming pool design are endless.
Beach Entries and Baja Steps in Central New Jersey, NJ
Historically, swimming pool entries were basically all the same: three or four small steps leading down into the “shallow end” of the pool. But today, many homeowners are enjoying a more “natural” design, such as a “beach entry.” Much like a beach that gradually descends into the ocean waves, a beach entry pool features a deck that gently slopes beneath the surface of the water and becomes increasingly deep as you move forward.
Some pool owners are also incorporating a “baja step” into their pool. This is simply a large rounded step, generally only a few inches to a foot or so deep, that allows swimmers and loungers alike to dabble in the water without becoming entirely immersed.

Infinity Edge Pools
East Coast Pool Concepts is proud to have pioneered one of today’s most popular and visually stunning pool features – the “infinity edge”. On infinity edge pools, one side of the pool has a “negative edge”, meaning that it is even with the water level in the pool. Water spills over this edge into a catch basin below, where it is then pumped back into the pool. And the effect is breathtaking as your pool seems to “float” above the landscaping and view of the yard.
Pool Landscaping in Central New Jersey, NJ
Landscaping around a pool, pond, spa, or other watershape, can make or break the look and feel of the project. Hardscaping, which is the use of walls, patios, paths, and decks, similarly is as important a contribution to the design of the project as is the softscape. Material selection for the hardscape and plant material selection for the softscape all contribute to the color palette selected, as well as to the textures that are part of the design.
Central New Jersey Concrete Pool Decks
One of the biggest trends in outdoor design today is a decorative concrete pool deck—an inviting, multipurpose area surrounding the pool where people can entertain, sunbathe or just hang out when they aren’t doing the backstroke. According to statistics from the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, we actually spend more time on our pool decks than in the pool itself. Of the 7.5 million or so people in the continental U.S. who own pools and decks, only 24 percent use them primarily for swimming. That makes the pool deck even more essential as an element in swimming pool design.
Decorative concrete has opened the door to creating swimming pool decks that complement the exterior of the home, meld with the outdoor environment, and replicate traditionally more expensive materials such as slate, stone or even wood. Pools and decks are becoming more specialized with a stronger emphasis on aesthetics, transforming the pool and backyard area into a mini resort with lighting, sound systems, spas, waterfalls and fountains. Today’s space-challenged backyards have also led to a trend in smaller swimming pools, enhanced by leisure areas that extend the indoor living space.
While a pool deck may essentially look and function like a patio, it has unique requirements for slip resistance, sun reflectivity and orientation. Use this site for guidelines to designing a concrete pool deck that suits almost any setting, budget and lifestyle, whether you want to entertain, keep cool, exercise or create a peaceful water-themed oasis.
Gunite Pools in Central New Jersey, NJ
Gunite and concrete pools both require a framing wall that can be constructed of strong materials such as reinforced concrete or steel.
Gunite is a concrete mix that is sprayed on the surface of the pool's walls and floor. The gunite surface is subsequently layered with an additional coating. The top coating or surface of a gunite pool can feature plaster or a specific paint.
Shotcrete in Central New Jersey, NJ
Shotcrete is also a concrete mix that is often used as a pool application and differs from gunite in its mixing method. A shotcrete pool also has a finished coating similar to the plaster and paint applications available for concrete or gunite pools.
Gunite pools are an expensive choice for an inground pool as they are labor intensive, require proper equipment and a skilled person to apply the gunite. They are generally considered to be of excellent quality and strong in comparison to other inground pools.
The floor and wall design opportunities for a gunite or a concrete pool are endless, as you can create different textures and all types of paint patterns and designs. The cement or gunite surface combined with the coating becomes the pool's surface, so neither use a liner.
