The Well Known Story Of Crestwood Pools

we’ve always listened to our customers, and good thing we did!

If You Build It, They Will Come…

Dear Future Crestwood Fan,

A unique idea from a customer was the spark that led to the creation and evolution of Crestwood Pools, the Ultimate On-Ground Pool manufacturer.

In 1986 an above-ground pool owner looking to replace his rusted out metal wall pool and damaged liner came into our family’s Swimming Pool manufacturing and retail facility in Vestal, NY.  We have been the premier pool builder in our area since 1961.  Upon reviewing our quote for the replacement items, the customer came up with a ‘light bulb’ idea.  He was employed by a company that made wooden silos, that has since become one of the leading custom laminated beam manufactures in the world.  His idea was, “I’ll just build a 24′ diameter Silo, 4′ high out of Pressure Treated Wood and buy a liner and other necessary components to make a pool from you”.

In the early 1970’s, we stopped selling above ground pools due to the inherent problems associated with the typical metal wall above ground pools, such as rusting, instability, etc.  We shifted our focus to building only custom built in-ground vinyl lined pools, which provided superior materials, quality and workmanship resulting in a long-term trouble free product for our customers.

When the customer presented his idea, we immediately could see the many benefits of using the proven design of a Silo or Barrel to construct a pool above ground that would stand the test of time and natural elements, without the common look and problems associated with typical above ground pools. With our family’s knowledge of proper pool construction and materials, we knew there was a market for a quality On-Ground Pool using the Silo concept as the base structure.

We began to purchase the walls and “Silo Hoops” to hold the boards together and we created the first complete pool display.  By placing the pool next to our busy parkway location, people saw the pool, and immediately started to inquire about this unusual Silo looking pool.  Inquiries quickly turned to sales and as they say “the rest is history”.

During the early years of constructing these original pools, we frequently made adjustments and improvements to overcome some installation challenges.  We finally turned the “Silo” concept into a purpose designed On-Ground Pool system. Drawing on over 125 years of combined knowledge in the swimming pool and construction industries we perfected the Crestwood Pool.  With some revolutionary ideas and innovations that were huge improvements over previous above ground pool products, we finalized all of our components, applied for a patent, incorporated and established Crestwood Pools, Inc. in 1989.

We were amazed at the popularity and rapid sales of Crestwood Pools with virtually no advertising or promotion.  Our only exposure was the original display pool. We decided to make Crestwood Pools available to other like-minded swimming pool dealers who shared our commitment to selling only top quality pools with excellent utility, performance and stability.  Our dealer network has been growing steadily since then with thousands of satisfied Crestwood Pool owners in the USA and other countries. Since that humble beginning, Crestwood has become the standard to which all others are compared and although others have tried to copy Crestwood Pools, our premier product has never been duplicated.

I look forward to serving you,

Rich Vultaggio

Questions & Answers on Round Above
Ground Swimming Pools

Above Ground pools are built on top of the ground.  The benefits of an above ground pool include affordability, quick installation and the ability to add or integrate with a deck.  However, there are drawbacks when you go with an aluminum or steel above ground pool.  These drawbacks include aesthetics that do not complement your yard, average durability, and difficulty when selling your house and/or moving the above ground pool to a new residence.  If you choose to go with a wooden above ground pool, you’ll achieve a more natural setting in your backyard, enhancing your resale value and simplifying the ability to transport the pool to a new residence.

Have a Question about Swimming Pools?  Call Crestwood at 607-786-0010

It’s not as much a question of the size of our 7 round above ground pools, or even our 3 oval above ground pools, rather it’s a question about the size of your yard or lot, as well as any unique characteristics of your property, such as hills, cement patios or wooden decks.  If you call Rich at 607-786-0010 with the dimensions of your property, he’ll use his 50+ years of experience to determine which pool sizes are best for you.  One more thing to consider is the size of your average swimming party.  Whether you have kids or plenty of friends, or both, you’ll want to take that into consideration when choosing a pool size so swimmers aren’t too crowded.

The biggest round above ground pool that we sell is a 27 footer.  This is the most ideal pool size for home owner’s who have kids and/or who invite family and friends over to swim.  We like to direct attention to pool safety at all times, and the more people you have swimming in your pool, the more space you are going to want between swimmers.

Depending on if you’re integrating your above ground pool with an existing deck, or if you’re planning on building a deck to wrap around your above ground pool, the price can fluctuate anywhere from $700 to over $10,000. As the age old saying goes, you get what you pay for. At Crestwood, our pools are always built to your standards, and ours. That is why we still have satisfied customers swimming in Crestwood Pools purchased in the 1980’s. Plus, our customers who have moved to a new home haven’t had as hard of a time selling their house with a high-quality wooden pool in the backyard. Another quantifiable benefit that customers rave about is how the wooden structure keeps the pool temperature warm, no matter the time of day or season.  We’ve converted several inground pool owners who had complained about the electrical bills to heat their pool.
