“Meet the Kennerson’s pool. Don’t take our word for it, ask a Boxford MA pool owner themselves!”
Project Location: Boxford, Massachusetts
Project Year: 2021
1. What influenced you to have a pool built?
The pandemic and my mother-in-law. Once COVID hit we knew our space had value (our lot is on over 3 acres). We wanted to create our own little Oasis. It started with a patio idea and morphed into a pool when my mother-in-law questioned, “why aren’t you getting a pool” on a 90 degree summer day. We were dialing SSG the next day.
2. What activities does your pool allow you to do?
Our 3 year-old daughter is learning to swim. We host group swim lessons every Monday with her friends. The sun deck that SSG installed is also a great space for her to play with her pool toys. The original plan was to install some ledge loungers for mom and dad but our daughter changed that quickly. We went with a bigger shallow end to accommodate pool games (soon to come volleyball net and basketball hoop).
3. Why did you choose SSG?
Reputation. I called a reference from my hometown that installed a pool from SSG a few years back. You would have thought that he was on the sales team. Personally we have heard many bad stories about issues with pool installations from friends and family. We did not want to risk that headache for such a big investment. Additionally, we liked that SSG does not outsource many of their jobs. We knew this would provide a smooth and fast build out which proved correct.
4. How was the design process?
Great. We had to get creative since our leach field was in the middle of our yard. Kevin Ransom designed a bigger pool than we expected that curved around the offset limits from the leach field. He also helped us maximize the shallow end while still incorporating a deep end to our pool. And the sundeck idea was a great one. Looking back on it we may have even gone a bit bigger with the sundeck.
5. What was your experience with the employees while building the pool?
All professionals. Never missed an appointment and each foreman was personable and spent time explaining every phase of the project. I was surprised in how good the service was – particularly given how many crews and departments go into building a pool from start to finish.
6. What was your experience with our supervisors and coordinators?
Incredibly responsive and willing to explain the details of the project. Their crews were all professional – you could tell there was a culture established that drove this high level of professional service from top to bottom.
7. What advice would you give to someone considering a pool for their home?
Focus more on value and less on cost.
8. Describe SSG using 3 words.
Professional. Quality. Trusted.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
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!"
