In-Pool Table

An In-Pool Table is a perfect option for entertaining, relaxing, or escaping the sunshine in your pool.

This resort-style feature has several customizable options with the shape, tile, size, and surrounding seating. Once you slide an umbrella into the sleeve of your In-Pool Table, your resort-style seating is activated.
Swim Up Bars

Swim Up Bar

A swim up bar is the ultimate addition to turn your backyard into your own private resort. You can serve up a fresh round of drinks while your guests relax on barstools inside the pool, just like they’re on vacation! A swim up bar works best in large yards that have the space for multiple entertainment areas. These resort-style options are ideal for entertaining, relaxing, or taking a break from the sun. Typically a swim up bar is connected to a sunken structure that houses an outdoor kitchen, refrigerator, and other outdoor entertainment essentials.

California Pools are an excellent pool builder! We have used them three times because they build gorgeous pools and backyards since 1996! They are very talented, efficient and they stand behind their very high end quality workmanship!

- Colleen B.

Considering I don’t know anything about pools, they were very patient and willing to teach me what was involved, not just sell me the best pool pump! The one thing I liked most is that they have their own landscape division. Good people, good service. I’d recommend these guys to anyone.

- Elias A.

Fantastic staff and company. One big difference with California Pools and Landscape – when we were in the design phase and picking the company, they listened. They did not oversell us. Installation was great. Nothing but 5 stars for the staff and the company.
