ALKA POOL has a rich history in the pool industry. For over 55 years ALKA POOL has been at the forefront of innovations and award winning designs but most importantly our customer’s confidence.
It all started when three brothers (Larry, Amedeo and Graziano) came to this exciting new country, Canada, to pursue a dream for a better life. They founded ALKA POOL Construction in 1961 building houses and pools in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland area finally settling into being the swimming pool experts. One brother went on to pursue other dreams and in 1971 Larry and Amedeo began their quest to turn ALKA POOL into an industry leader well-known for quality craftsmanship, technical innovation, unparalleled customer service and a responsible corporate member of our community. With Larry as the driving force, ALKA POOL went from our humble beginnings as a local pool builder in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland to the business we have become today building high-end, high quality poolscapes throughout British Columbia. With Amedeo at his side, the brothers built more and more challenging pool designs. The mountains of Vancouver provide a glorious backdrop for the perfect cantilevered pool. Larry’s engineering background allowed ALKA POOL to specialize in building these cliff hanger pools that became our hallmark of quality and innovation. With the influx of the Asian buyer into the Vancouver real estate market in the late 1980’s, the opportunity for high-end pools with automation options and attached water features presented ALKA POOL with a challenge to take the business to the next level. As a result ALKA POOL took the lead in the industry and brought new innovations to British Columbia like ozone, turbo clean and structural designs.
