Your Pool

Transform Your Pool

In the past few years, there’s been a virtual “wave” of new advances in gunite pool design, construction and technology that combine to create a contemporary pool environment that adds enjoyment to your life . . . and real value to your residence.

Gunite pool renovations and remodels are a specialty of J. Tortorella Pools, where craftsmen miraculously convert older pool environments into realms of waterfalls and fountains, complemented by exquisite surroundings and featuring the latest in today’s technology from the nation’s top suppliers: lights, automatic controls, filters and pumps, pool heaters and covers.

Where a new level of luxury begins

Every J. Tortorella Pools renovation project begins with a personal consultation with you and 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. We’ll discuss your needs, your desires and your dreams. With that knowledge, we’ll bring you our best thinking. . . leading-edge ideas . . . and award-winning creativity.

Our designers turn your vision into reality

Whether you’re looking for a simple upgrade – or have your sights set on a complete renovation – our designers will turn your vision into reality. While we’re the leading designers of “negative edge/infinity edge” pools, we’re positive there’s no shape we can’t create, no style we can’t elevate, no vision we can’t match: begin with these options, then let your imagination take it from there.

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. Concerned about our environment? We are too. That’s why we offer a full range of ecologically responsible options that can give you a “green pool” that’s always beautifully blue.

Built to our exacting standards

At J. Tortorella, every facet of your pool renovation will be built to our exacting standards, which are far more stringent than what’s required by our industry. We use only the finest teams of professionals for every project – whether it’s a new build or a renovation – and the best quality materials and systems, with:

  • Gunite applied by an ACI certified nozzleman. Improper application can cut the life of your pool by five years or more.
  • Filtration systems that are top of the line for maximum energy efficiency and cost savings. We use systems with the latest in innovative hydraulic design, which uses less energy to move water. And the more efficient your filtration system, the fewer chemicals you’ll need to keep your water crystal clear.
  • Masonry work built by master craftsmen for strength, quality and style.
  • Your choice of finishes, from the most-popular marble dust to the natural elegance of hydrazzo.

If your pool is at least five years old, there’s never been a better time to consider renovating it than right now. And there’s no better pool designer and builder for the project on Long Island than J. Tortorella Pools. Take a look at our portfolio. Better yet, request a quote now.

Filters & Pumps

Today’s filtering systems offer higher energy efficiency, lower maintenance – and are less noisy – than ever before. At J. Tortorella, we offer our clients a choice of systems from leading manufacturers, including Sta-Rite’s System:3® Mod Media™ filters, which handle two to three times more dirt than other filters, providing maintenance-free performance for up to an entire season. They’re ideal for in-ground pools and spas, as well as water features, for a pristine pool compound.

High-performance pumps dramatically reduce energy use, save money and are nearly silent during operation. Offering maximum efficiency and enhanced performance, these pumps are simple to control and protect themselves against damage so they last longer than their traditional counterparts. Most J. Tortorella pools are equipped with a Sta-Rite® pump.

Pool Heaters

Efficient heaters for that just-right water temperature can maximize your pool enjoyment and extend it – all season long. Featuring advanced electronics and increased energy efficiency, these heaters are simple to use, produce optimal temperatures more quickly for faster heating and help maintain a constant pool temperature rain or shine. We offer our clients a choice of heaters from industry leaders Sta-Rite® and Jandy.

Pool Covers

For maximum enjoyment – and minimal fuss – J. Tortorella offers our clients a choice of pool covers from leading manufacturers. For additional questions, please visit our Pool Covers FAQs.

CoverStar Automatic Pool Covers

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.

Loop-Loc Safety Pool Covers for Winter

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 always stays dry and neat looking . . . all winter long. With your choice of colors, your pool always looks great.

Grando Pool Covers

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.
