The Merillat Difference

Every pool we design is as unique as our clients. We make sure to communicate with our clients to ensure that we understand their vision. There are many variables that go into creating the perfect pool for each family, including tile and coping choices, shapes, and patios; as well as sundecks, benches, diving boards and more.  We carefully consider each aspect as each pool is designed. We understand the importance of both form and functionality in creating the pool that will make the most of your backyard space, as well as be a source of enjoyment for you and your family for many years to come.

Whether entertaining, enjoying family time, or simply relaxing in the solace of your own peaceful yard, a swimming pool creates multiple opportunities to spend time with friends and family, or simply to enjoy being outdoors.  It’s an investment that will be a source of beauty and activity for your lifetime.

Gunite Swimming Pools

Create your own backyard oasis with a custom swimming pool from Merillat Pools. Every pool we create is customized to meet the needs of the client.

Gunite Swimming Pools offer a multitude of choices to allow you to create a one of kind focal point for your space. Shape, size and depth are all customizable. You will also be able to select the coping stone, tile border, stairs, lighting, decks, covers, heating options and equipment of your choice.

We will create your pool’s shell by using steel reinforcing rods to make the chosen shape for the pool. A mixture of sand and concrete is then sprayed over the steel rods. Finally the walls and floor are finished with plaster or another coating of your choice. The final walls and floors range from 8″ to 12″ thick, and the top edge is 12″-14″ thick and are made using products that are chosen specifically for their strength and durability.

The construction of a Gunite pool takes 6 to 12 weeks to complete, and the process can be labor intensive. The quality of the finished product is our utmost concern, so we take the time to do it correctly and make sure that your pool is the highest quality finished product, as well as a great value for your money.

Tile & Coping

Every Merillat pool includes a six-inch tile border around the pool perimeter, and accent tiles to highlight steps, swim outs, and benches. We offer an extensive collection of beautiful tile to set your pool apart as an exquisite piece of art.

Tumbled Bluestone, Flagstone, or Bullnose Paver coping is available. Bullnose Paver coping comes in many different colors. Flagstone coping creates an elegant look, and is also available in several colors and sizes.  Tumbled Bluestone coping provides a more natural look to your pool setting.

Water Features

The sound of flowing water is one of the most relaxing sounds!  Create the ultimate relaxation experience by adding a custom designed water feature to your Merillat pool. Our handcrafted waterfalls can be created from many different materials including natural stone, marble, or tile. Add plants and lighting to your water feature to create an absolutely gorgeous focal point for your backyard paradise.

Pool Covers

Solid Safety Covers

Safety covers are standard for pool winterization. They prevent children, animals and debris from entering your pool during the winter months. Safety covers are water-resistant, solid and will keep out dirt, dust, as well as the rays of the sun. Keeping out the sunlight prevents algae growth beneath the cover all winter long. When you open your pool in the spring you will find nothing but clear, clean water. Solid Safety covers use automatic pump systems to remove any water that accumulates from the cover. All of the covers offered by Merillat Pools & Aqua Maintenance are custom made to fit the measurements of your pool.

Automatic Pool Covers

Automatic pool covers are the number one safety measure you can add to your pool. Even in their own yard, young children can be at risk. Installing an automatic pool cover gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the pool is covered and your children and guests are safe. Automatic pool covers can also be equipped with solar heating; adding as much as 10 degrees helping to decrease the need for heating. These covers are a beautiful and efficient solution for safety as well as protection for your pool The entire covering mechanism will be installed below the deck, tracks running just under the deck overhang.
