California Pools' Swimming Pool of The Year

Award Winning Swimming Pool

California Pools is proud to showcase our absolutely amazing Pool of the Year! Bill McLaughlin, Manager of our Santa Clarita office built this stunning showstopper with all the bells and whistles.  This freeform swimming pool is complete with a therapeutic spa, waterslide, grotto, rope swing, bridge, waterfall, fire features, landscape lighting and a relaxing 100 foot long lazy river.  We can’t think of anything else that could top off this gorgeous and extra fun backyard oasis! 

Each and every year, California Pools hosts a company banquet to honor our hard working and talented offices building extraordinary swimming pools for you! We thought you would enjoy getting to know Bill as he continues to pave the path for outstanding backyards in Santa Clarita!

This definitely isn't the first amazing swimming pool that Bill has designed and built.  

He has been in the swimming pool industry for over 19 years, with 7 of them leading the team in Santa Clarita.  We asked Bill what his favorite element of building pools is and he said, “I enjoy working with new families and taking a vision on paper and turning it into a beautiful reality and making the pool come to life!”  

Bill said that this pool of the year took several design revisions in order to get it “just right!” The pool, we agree, is absolutely amazing!  Not only was this pool awarded Pool of the Year on a national level, but it was also featured on the hit reality television show Pool Kings! When asked, Bill said, “Working on Pool Kings with the season 1 hosts Jim and Mike was a blast! It was an incredible experience, probably a once in a lifetime opportunity!”  Tune in to the DIY network and watch Pool Kings in action building this incredible backyard oasis! 

We asked Bill how he felt to win the prestigious Pool of the Year award and he said, “I am absolutely blown away! We have some of the best pool builders in the industry here at California Pools and to win Pool of the Year is amazing and I'm incredibly honored!” 

Thank you Bill for your outstanding craftsmanship and leadership with your Santa Clarita team! Because of strong and innovative leaders like Bill, California Pools has been a leader in the swimming pool industry for 66 years! Since 1952 we have been building beautiful and highly crafted swimming pools and turning ordinary backyards into staycation resorts!
