We Are Elite Pools
Elite Commercial Pools and Fountains is a contracting firm specializing in the construction of pools, fountains, spas, and water features for both public and private sector clients in Central and Southwest Florida. While our name is synonymous with superior craftsmanship and customer satisfaction, Elite has a rich history and foundation built around family values, hard work, and passion.
As a third-generation Florida business, Elite now owns a full fleet of vehicles, our own building and top-of-the line equipment. We have been featured as one of the top 50 swimming pool builders in the nation four times by Pool and Spa News and are known for our unparalleled customer service. In addition, Elite is the only local pool contractor able to provide payment and performance bonds required for municipal and large commercial projects.
As water feature construction evolved, so has our company. In 1984, we began as Elite Pools, Inc. In 1990, we acquired Weiler Pools and operated as Elite-Weiler Pools, Inc. for 28 years. During this time, we grew to be a nationally ranked pool contractor. Elite Weiler Pools grew tremendously over the years through hard work and commitment, while becoming a household name among 12,000 pool owners.
Re-branding into Elite Commercial Pools & Fountains, our new brand represents our singular focus on the needs of our valued commercial clients. The integration of our experience coupled with cutting-edge technology creates a clear vision for our future.
Our new logo, featuring an abstract pineapple, represents the ultimate symbol of hospitality and is frequently used as a centerpiece for lavish displays and elaborate presentations, much like the water features we create.
Project success relies heavily upon decisions made during the initial stages. Whether optimizing value, controlling costs, meeting aggressive schedules or all of the above, Elite’s skilled professionals provide an open, collaborative approach with comprehensive pre-construction planning services designed to:
Manage the overall process by tracking details and holding team members accountable
Better serve the interests of our clients by working collaboratively with an onsite team of subcontractors and builders to develop the best solutions
Inspire designs that serve both the needs and the desires of our clients
Our company’s mission is to deliver value, communication, and performance. Our years of experience building thousands of pools and fountains has given us the foundation to quickly react to the ever-changing needs of the commercial construction industry.
