The Top 8 Pool Builders In Arizona In 2023 (Ratings & Reviews)

The Top 8 Pool Builders In Arizona In 2023 (Ratings & Reviews)

Pools and the Arizona heat are a match made in heaven. Many people who live here will tell you that pools are the only thing that makes the long summer season bearable. Since they’re such a desired commodity, it seems like there’s a pool builder on every corner.

And when those companies all claim to be Arizona’s #1 pool builder, how do you know which company is the right one for your project?

Naturally, we want to say California Pools & Landscape is the best pool builder in Arizona! We think we’re pretty great and so does the Better Business Bureau. They awarded us with the International Torch Award for Ethics, which honors companies that demonstrate best practices, leadership, social responsibility, and high standards of organizational ethics. California Pools & Landscape is the only Arizona pool builder to be bestowed with this honor!

And while we would love the opportunity to create a fun and memorable space for your family, that doesn’t automatically make us the best fit for you. Every builder has their own niche within the pool industry. Some pool builders, like us, specialize in outdoor living and custom design. Others might be really strong pool package companies.

We spent hours investigating each company’s license history, online reviews, websites, services offered, BBB accreditation, and when they started business in Arizona. All so that you don’t have to!

As a consumer, all these criteria are important when choosing a reputable pool builder. I’m sure you’re asking, “Why would you create this list and not put yourself on it?”. Whether you choose California Pools & Landscape or not, it is more important to us that you find the best Arizona pool builder for your project.

Choosing the right pool builder for you

We highlighted 8 of the best pool builders in Arizona and stacked them up head to head based on permit totals, online reputation, and services offered. If you’re still worried about which one is right for you, we’ve put together a resource to describe what you should be looking for in a pool builder.

After building over 1000 projects last year, we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you who California Pools is a good fit for. While things like our 4.0 Google rating, a 4-star Yelp rating, and an A+ rating at 4.22 stars with the Better Business Bureau are important, that doesn’t tell you if you’re a good fit. You should consider California Pools if you are looking for a builder who:

  • Can design and build anything from a family pool to a total outdoor living environment
  • Specializes in custom design
  • Offers great value, but isn’t always the lowest price
  • Has the best warranty in the industry
  • Will help you design the pool and yard of your dreams with many finishes, designs, and products. We take a whole yard approach to design.

Our goal is to help make your dreams a reality! Please reach out to our Customer Concierge Department to discuss the process further. They can schedule a time to meet with a Designer at one of our beautiful Design Centers, in the comfort of your home, or through a video consultation. Our Designers are experts in construction and are well versed in 3D computer design. They walk you through the process of designing and planning all the details that are needed to make your vision come to life!
