Commercial Renovations

We’ve earned a reputation as the preferred contractor for commercial jobs throughout New England. Our highly-experienced commercial pool designers and renovators can save you tens of thousands of dollars in maintenance, repairs and operational costs. Check out our list of our commercial projects, or view the gallery of some of our more recent commercial projects.

You may not know is that the laws and technology for pool construction and renovation have changed dramatically over the last few years. Equipment that was “cutting edge” ten years ago may be costing you three to five times more to operate compared to today’s equipment, and practices that were acceptable just five years ago can now actually land you in jail.

At SSG, we’ve stayed on the cutting edge of developments in our industry since 1973. So when you talk to us about commercial pools, you can rest assured you’re working with a company that knows what they’re doing.

Deck repair / replacement

Dollar for dollar, the installation of a paver deck will make a more dramatic impact than any other change or upgrade you can think of, and if cracked cement has been a problem, our pavers will eliminate that problem forever.

For discriminating commercial facilities – Design your own Custom Pavers

If your deck renovation is anywhere close to 10,000 square feet, you may want to consider creating your own custom pavers. We can provide custom colors and textures to match your facility. Or add a special material such as crushed conch shells or colored glass, to create a paver that is totally unique to you. Your options are endless.

Here are just a few samples of the many custom paver options available on request:

Re-Plaster / Resurface

If the interior finish of your pool is looking worn, it’s probably because you have a plaster or Marcite finish. This was very common 15 years ago, but it’s almost unheard of today. That’s because in the last five years, the new aggregate finishes have taken on the industry by storm, and for good reason too. These new finishes last 2 to 10 times longer than the old Marcite finishes, and they’re stunningly beautiful too. Using different colored pebbles or aggregates, we can create any color you want.

We can also give you choices in the surface texture. Some people like the feel of the regular pebble finish. Others like the extra smoothness of polished marble or quartz aggregate finishes. Either way, you’ll get a new pool interior that is prettier and longer lasting than ever before.

Tile repair / replacement

Tile lifting and cracks in tile or cement are commonly just “patched or replaced” by inexperienced pool contractors. But this is a mistake. A crack is a sign of a construction defect such as faulty material, faulty application, or the absence of proper control joints. Whatever it is, it must be diagnosed and corrected at the source. Otherwise, the problems will continue to haunt you for years to come.

Energy-Saving Upgrades

Money-Saving, Energy-Saving Upgrades

The industry has been working hard to develop more cost-efficient pumps, filters, lights, heaters and control systems. Altogether, today’s swimming pools use about 60% less energy than they did 20 years ago.

Variable speed pumps

These new variable speed pumps use 64% less electricity than single speed pumps. They run longer at low cost, keeping pool water cleaner for less money.

New Automation Systems

With the new automation systems, today’s pools practically take care of themselves! Perhaps the single greatest breakthrough for commercial pool operations is the new pH / ORP control system. Much more than a simple chlorinator, this system monitors the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of the water and the pH. It then automatically adjusts the settings on the chlorinator and the acid-control system to keep your chemicals in balance. What was once a daily chore can now be checked once a month!

For a one-on-one consultation for your commercial project, please call our office at 800.649.8080.

Safety Inspections & upgrades

In December 2007, the US government passed a national pool & spa safety law to minimize the likelihood of human entrapment, evisceration or drowning in public or private swimming pools. Any commercial pool that doesn’t comply with these new statutes will be subject to fines, closure and/or further legal action by state and federal authorities.

The safest and fastest way to determine if your pool meets the new state and federal guidelines is to schedule a safety inspection by a trained industry expert. Please call our office at 800.649.8080. We will arrange a safety inspection to determine what actions, if any, are required to keep your commercial pool open and operating.
