The Driscoll’s – Scituate Massachusetts Pool

“Don’t take our word for it,

ask a Scituate MA pool owner themselves!”

Project Location: Scituate, MA

Project Year: 2018

1. What influenced you to have a pool built?

As a child I grew up with a pool in Andover, MA. I have such happy memories from my childhood – lazy days by the pool, learning to swim and dive, my dad throwing me from his shoulders. My husband and I discussed a pool (after shortly moving into our home) an antique home in Scituate Harbor with a double lot. Our side yard was relatively flat and we thought it would be ideal for a pool. We thought the pool would be perfect for our boys (who are growing up quickly) and great for entertaining and exercise. We want to be the hangout house 😉 Now our forever home has our dream pool!

2. What activities does your pool allow you to do?

Relax – it’s a great space to feel like we’re on vacation at home. Love sitting by the pool with a coffee or a cocktail. Watching the water is meditative.

Entertain – Our pool is a great backdrop for birthday parties (hosted my husband’s 40th and son’s 9th), gatherings with friends and family.

Exercise – we enjoy swimming laps in the pool for non-weight bearing exercise.

Escape the heat – It’s a great place for us to cool off on those humid, hot summer days.

Play – races, hand-stand competitions, Marco Polo, water volleyball

3. Why did you choose SSG?

We chose SSG for a number of reasons.

Reputation and Experience – We felt good going with a company who has a wonderful track record and who has been in business for so long.

Brett – He met with us and we instantly liked him. He gave us so much great information and really went above and beyond – helping us with fencing for the dogs and troubleshoot some issues that came up (ex. moving our shed and when we hit some large rocks during the dig.

The lifetime warranty – this gave us peace of mind with such a large purchase.

Recommendations – our dentist (who didn’t end up putting in a pool) recommended you. I also called about 8 or 9 references given by SSG Pools – all had glowing reports and still loved the pools built by SSG. It was great to hear even in 15-18 years the pools were still doing great.

4. How was the design process?

Amazing. We loved the free form design Brett came up with. He understood the vision we had for space.

5. What was your experience with the employees while building the pool?

Amazing. You hire such skilled artisans and professionals. Everyone was so great to our family, especially our kids, explaining the process.

6. What was your experience with our supervisors and coordinators? 

Great. They were always helpful when we needed something or had a question.

7. What advice would you give to someone considering a pool for their home?

Do your research and know exactly what you want in your pool. Also, you may want a bigger deck than expected for entertaining. We added to the deck size and so glad we did. I’ve written a blog post detailing more advice when considering putting in a pool.

Our Work Brings Great Reviews


“They build a gorgeous pool. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I came very close to working with another vendor as I did not think I could afford a quality Gunite pool. I quickly made the switch as SSG worked with me to customize a pool within my price range. Best decision I made and best pool ever! I am very happy with my decision”

“These folks did a great job building and finishing our pool. We also needed them to move the equipment after adding an outbuilding, which they did on time and on budget and without complaining! The service people are friendly, punctual, and very professional. Overall, an excellent customer experience.”

"The staff at SSG went above and beyond to make this pool happen for us, in the least stressful manner possible, amidst a Pandemic that shut down manufacturers, suppliers, deliveries. They worked outdoors in masks in 90 plus degree weather. They designed and created a beautiful backyard oasis for us. SSG is an exceptional company. They do high quality, gorgeous work, and they stand behind their name. They are a FIVE star company!"

"We worked with SSG Pools for the installation of our gunite pool and deck. We found them wonderful to work with and the pool turned out spectacular. Stunning! It is a wonderful gathering space for our family and friends now. SSG Pools has a wonderful and skilled staff. Through the whole process we were in good hands and the pool they built was the one we dreamed about. I highly recommend this company and also love the lifetime warranty."

"On time and on budget. I have used South Shore over the last 10+ years on 2 pools I have, one at home the other at my vacation home . They repaired a major problems on one pool that other pool companies had been unable to fixed and they completely rebuilt a second pool starting in April and had the job completed and ready to swim by Memorial day. I also use them for weekly service to make sure things run well. In New England you get 3 months to really enjoy your pool why would trust anyone else."


– Paul D. | Weston & Osterville, MA | Houzz Review

"We just had a beautiful gunite pool and deck completed by South Shore Gunite pools and spa last summer. From the very first meeting at our home they understood what we were looking for and made us feel very comfortable with their ability to deliver a beautiful result. Their attention to detail and their ability to connect us with a wonderful landscape architect guided us through the planning and construction phases. Their work crew was well organized, efficient, pleasant and very respectful of our property. It was an amazing process to watch and an amazing result to enjoy. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality pool company."


– Louis Y. | Orleans, MA | Houzz Review

"SSG was wonderful to work with throughout the pool building process. I anticipated being overwhelmed given that I had never had a pool before, but they helped put my mind at ease with their professionalism and responsiveness to all my needs. Rick (sales) Mark (builder) and Karen (Admin) were outstanding!"


– Michael E. | Pembroke, MA | Houzz Review

"After interviewing 3 pool companies, we chose South Shore Gunite based on their expertise, their willingness to guide us through the process, and their great communication. We chose a filtration system recommended by them that uses an ozonator. Love our pool. Very happy with every step of the way."
