A great reputation is earned one client at a time-something Advanced Pools knows a thing or two about. Based in Northern California, Advanced Pools is a family-owned company that has crafted a solid name for itself by delivering custom inground pools that are not only built to the highest standards, but which are also a delight to behold. “People know our product just by walking into the yard,”says company president Rick Legnon. “Folks admire the physical attributes but are equally pleased to discover that under the beautiful exterior the pool is structurally strong and will last a lifetime of enjoyment.”
Some builders find sloping hillsides, expansive soil conditions, and other types of impossible pool sites a problem. Not Legnon and his crew, who are recognized throughout the industry for designing and building state-of-the-art poolscapes, including vanishing-edge sensations. In fact, Advanced Pools has garnered a number of honors, including international design awards from a variety of industry organizations and a Master of Design designation for Legnon from a well-known trade magazine. “Our philosophy is to take a perceived negative, whether it is a small yard or a difficult lot, and to create something positive,”Legnon says.
Advanced Pools is a member of the Carecraft organization, a network of the country’s top pool builders. Although Legnon limits the number of projects he accepts each year in order to make every client feel special, he will travel anywhere in the world to offer his design expertise. “It is our policy to stay in constant contact with our customers,”Legnon says. “We make sure all of our projects-from contemporary lap pools to natural enclaves-receive personal attention.”
