Your J. Tortorella Pool begins with a conversation with a member of our team, or John Tortorella himself. An award-winning pool and spa designer, John oversees the concept, design and construction of every pool that bears his name.
Together, you’ll select the best site for the size and shape of the pool and spa you desire: a site that fulfills your vision, as well as all zoning and planning requirements.
With your pool style and shape selected, we then design its surroundings – from quality patios and decking to magnificent waterfalls and fountains – and end with a pool compound that fits both your life and unique sense of style.

A convenient way to reduce pool heating and maintenance costs, this cover can reduce pool heating costs and chemical usage by up to 70% and also reduce water evaporation by up to 90%. These automatic cover systems are designed to seamlessly integrate into your pool’s decking and wall components – and are available in a choice of colors – for an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Unlike solid winter pool covers that collect rainwater – along with dirt and debris – the Loop-Loc safety cover is made of a fine mesh polypropylene that allows rain water and snow melt to pass slowly through. The tight weave of the nearly indestructible fabric keeps out all but the very finest dust. Dirt and debris blow away, so the cover stays dry and neat looking . . . all winter long. With your choice of colors, your pool always looks great.
Ranked highest for child safety, these covers can accommodate any size or shape pool and eliminate the need for fencing. Without unattractive tracks, these pool covers are also energy efficient – cutting your heating costs by as much as 70% – and can be solar panel-equipped for added efficiency.
“This is a first. I have never written a letter of praise to a contractor before. Your men did a beautiful job in all respects. The pavers were laid down with precision, the steps were matched to the existing deck almost perfectly, and all your men were cordial and polite.”
