In Western Pennsylvania, pool builders have long struggled over the years contending with its rolling hills. The terrain found here is far from conducive for inground pools. Flat backyards are not the norm. Most properties have some level of grade differential requiring retaining walls or other grading considerations. Swimming pool installations are further compounded by groundwater conditions, clay, and bedrock.

This trademarked system utilizes poured concrete wall similar to contemporary poured foundations, only thicker and heavier and with steel rebar to add to the structural support. These concrete pool walls may be customized and extended adding tremendous strength to the pool as well as eliminating the need for retaining walls.
