Mission Pools Honored By Master Pools Guild

Posted by Master Pools Guild on Fri, May 17, 2013

Swimming pools and spas come in all shapes and sizes but none have a champagne acrylic spa suspended over the pool and overlooking the Pacific Ocean – at least not until now.  Constructed using stainless steel structural members welded to a stainless steel post that extends down below the pool floor.  The all glass tile, quarter circle pool was built with a stainless steel coping and a rotating post which is designed to allow the interior quarter circle of the house floor to rotate from inside the house to outside the house and cover the pool when the owners would like to use it for outdoor dancing!  This pool is truly extraordinary in design and absolutely stunning to behold. 

Outstanding Tech Achieve

The Master Pools Guild, during the March 2013 Excellence Awards Ceremony, announced a new series of awards.  These awards were bestowed upon the designs that scored the highest points in their respective categories during the judging process.  This swimming pool design was awarded the first Master Pools Guild Excellence Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement.   The trophy was presented by Art Grimmitt of Pentair Aquatic Group, to Jeff Dunn of Mission Pools of California.  Somehow it seems very appropriate that we say “To the entire Mission Pools Team, Congratulations and Cheers!
