In its simplest definition an in-ground swimming pool is a gunite/concrete shell, reinforced by steel rebar. However, we at Islander Pools know that a swimming pool is much more. A pool is backyard entertainment - a place where family and friends can gather and enjoy life. It is a playground for your children and their friends. Your pool can provide relaxation, exercise, physical therapy, and fun. A pool completes your backyard and makes a vacation spot just one step away. A pool provides sparkling beauty and the peaceful sound of water. A pool is your personal piece of paradise.
