The Man Behind The Name

About John Tortorella

Award-winning Long Island pool builder and spa designer John Tortorella oversees the concept, design and construction of every pool that bears his name. And he has since the very beginning.

John founded J. Tortorella Pools in 1981 when he graduated with a degree in business and marketing from the New York Institute of Technology. Having worked his way through school cleaning pools – and spending years working side by side with his father, a mason by trade – John not only saw the lack of creativity and quality in the gunite swimming pool industry . . . he knew he could do better. John was right.

tor_fleetToday, Tortorella Pools ranks among the top firms nationwide and is the designer and builder of some of the most spectacular pools on Long Island from their Southampton and Hampton Bays locations. Showcased in such leading publications as House & Gardens, Forbes and The New York Times, J. Tortorella Pools boasts numerous awards, including those from the National Spa & Pool Institute, Northeast Spa & Pool Association and Pool & Spa News; it also was named the “Best of the Best” in Eastern Long Island’s infamous Dan’s Papers.

The pool business is the flagship in a family of J. Tortorella Group: Autochem, which provides bulk chemicals to commercial clients, and J. Tortorella Heating and Gas, a propane distributor.

An environmentalist, John also is very active in his Long Island community and the gunite swimming pool industry. He has been involved in the Northeast Spa & Pool Association and National Spa & Pool Institute, locally in the Southampton Business Alliance, Southampton Little League and Southampton Youth Soccer Association, as well as the American Heart Association, which honored him in 2004 for his years of dedicated service.
