Pugliese Pools has over 60 years of custom swimming pool design! No other NJ swimming pool builder or swimming pool designer has been a custom swimming pool builder as long as Pugliese Pools. Over the years we have earned a high reputation for custom swimming pool design that lasts for decades. Our pools have guarantees that our clients truly value and few of our competitors can match. In May, 2015, unsolicited one of our customers emailed us about the Pugliese Pool we built for him in 1986 — 31 years ago.

”Tom, just to let you know, that our Pugliese pool built in 1986 is still going strong after all these years. It was one of the last one’s designed  by the “old man” with a spray paint can at the end of a stick. It is a creation of beauty and is still a true source of pleasure and pride.”
– Dr. Bud K., West Caldwell


We are renown for the ”Natural Look” Pool we created in the 1960s that has been emulated by other NJ swimming pool builders and national luxury swimming pool builders. We can create a luxury swimming pool design for you that is modern, traditional, natural or formal. Our customers are equally impressed by the diverse range of our NJ custom swimming pool design as well as Tom’s 50+ years as luxury pool designer.

Pugliese has a unique pool construction design along with a special pool piping and water flow. Our pool piping is designed where the return flow into the pool is in the shallow end pushing toward the skimmers at the deep end. This provides a water flow in one direction. The skimmers are drawing water and the returns are pushing toward them. By doing so, the water surface is kept clean, with an attractive current and glistening effect. We design our systems to recirculate the entire pool’s water at least 3x’s within a 24 hr. period.


#1. Every Pugliese Pool built since 1955 is still in use today.
#2. Pugliese Pool has never had a pool structure failure, crack or leak.
