Pool Build Highlight: The Dickens and Kraige Family of Mesa, Arizona

THE DICKENS AND KRAIGE FAMILY OF MESA, ARIZONA, PARTNERED WITH PRESIDENTIAL TO BUILD THEIR DREAM BACKYARD. THEY WERE NICE ENOUGH TO SHARE PICTURES AND DETAILS ABOUT THEIR PROJECT, ALONG WITH ADVICE FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MAY BE LOOKING TO BUILD A SWIMMING POOL.

WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO BUILD A POOL?

We had an empty backyard and wanted to build an oasis that was inviting to share with friends and family. 

WHAT FEATURES WERE MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU IN DESIGNING YOUR POOL?

Easy to operate and as little maintenance as possible. We wanted a water feature and a design that worked with our yard and accommodated aging parents. 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE PRESIDENTIAL POOLS, SPAS & PATIO AS YOUR POOL BUILDER?

We shopped around and chose Presidential because of the design (by Audra). She listened to what we wanted and created our dream backyard. The in-house service department and the many options to choose from were important, too. 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR POOL NOW?

We love the pool, but especially the in-floor cleaning system, the Pebble Radiance, and the Marbella decking. We also like the ability to control the pool features from our cell phone or tablet. 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU OFFER TO THOSE JUST STARTING THE POOL BUILDING PROCESS?

Think of your lifestyle, decide what you want up front. Make sure it's the design you want. Do your homework. Talk to people and compare. Pool equipment and decking are where we put most of our funds. You don't want to change that later.
