A custom inground pool will be the focal point of any backyard project, but can be a complex process.

What is ACTUALLY involved in a pool project?

Do you have the time?

Designing and building an inground pool seems like it should be a simple process. However, there is so much more than meets the eye! Most inground pool projects typically involve a:

  • Project Manager
  • Pool Builder
  • Landscaper
  • Hardscaper
  • Fence Installer
  • Plumber
  • Electrician
  • Carpenter
  • Architect.

We will guide you through the project

Finding the time to organize these moving parts can be difficult. Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes has been involved with Pool designs and inground pool installation projects for over ten years and has created a turnkey system with a team of expert professionals and contractors to handle every detail of your project.

What questions should you be asking?

Let us guide you...

Education / Advisement

A pool project can be a huge undertaking. Our role in any project is to educate and advise our customers to ensure they know what is being done and, more importantly, why. With over 300 combined years of experience, you can be sure you're in good hands.

3D Design

An accurate and detailed design will give you a clear picture of your finished product. Our lead designer will take your ideas and create a 3D image so you can see exactly what your project will look like before we even break ground.

Material Selection

There are thousands, if not millions of material combinations to choose from for your project. How do you know what materials will look good together or how long they will last? Along with our in-house team of designers, we have teamed up with a plethora of high-quality vendors to ensure that your project will not only be beautiful but will last for years to come.

Budget and Costs

Costs on construction projects can skyrocket quickly. We look at every detail of the project and provide a detailed and itemized breakdown of all costs before we even start a project.

Permits / Inspections

Every township has different rules and regulations for construction projects. We take the time to understand what permits you need and take care of the entire application process for you. We also ensure all jobs are being completed to township specifications so when your project is inspected, you can be sure it is up to par. We ask for permission, not forgiveness


We know how important your time is. Trying to keep a construction project on schedule with so many different moving parts is a difficult task. Through our streamlined, turnkey system, we simplify the process and handle all of the logistics. Keep your time for details that matter the most to you and let us handle the project from start to finish.

Peace of Mind

Construction projects have a lot of moving parts! The most difficult part of any project is dealing with the small details as they come up. We take the time to meticulously plan every detail of your project to reduce surprises. What happens if a surprise happens? From your perspective, nothing! We handle all of those little details so you don't have to.

But, I already have a pool...

A full renovation project is a great way to improve your space.

  • Resurfacing or replacing the interior of the pool itself.
  • Removing the current pool deck and replacing with a new one made from concrete or pavers.
  • Adding new features such as an automatic cover
  • Adding new steps or tanning ledges
