"There's No Better Job In The World, Than Building Fun." G. Bruce Dunn/President
Take a minute and think about a time in your life when you were completely happy. When there was no such thing as stress. When the only thought in your head was "Yes!" Chances are, if you experienced such a moment, you did it in the water.
There's Somthing about a swimming pool that makes us feel alive, and makes us forget the ordinary. Starlit parties. Evening cookouts. Ruthless games of Marco Polo. And double flips with a half twist.
You see, in the end, life's not about how much money you made. How hard you worked. How many awards you won. It's about how much fun you had. No one understands that better than Mission Pools. Because fun is what we do. Better than anyone else in the world.
--G. Bruce Dunn/President
"If All We Do Is Meet Your Expectations, Then We Haven't Met Ours."
There's no magic to what we do. Although while sipping a cool drink and watching a sunset dance along the top of your pool, you'd be tmpted to think so. no, what gives a Mission Pool its magic is a company-wide obesession with performance.
Making anything less than the best pool in the world, is unacceptable. Exemplary design. Superlative craftsmanship. Peerless construction. It all comes together in one magnificent creation. But that's not enough. Because the finest pool in the world is worthless, if it's not the pool you expected.
--Jeffery G. Dunn/Executive Vice President
"If You Can Dream It, We Can Build It."
When was the last time anyone asked you what you wanted? Not told you what you needed. or presented you with some pitifully inadequate list of options. But sat down, opened their mind and asked all the right questions.
Questions like, what type of design do yo like best? Which features interest you? Which don't? How can we match your dreams to your budget? And are you sure a pool is what you really need? Most builders would be afraid to ask that last one. But we're not most builders.
We're Mission Pools. And we consider your wants our responsibility. No matter what your budget. Not matter what your dream.
It's been said that if you look into your heart long enough, sometimes your heart looks back. And when it does, your heart will see someone who got exactly what they wanted. Absolute happiness is a pretty though thing to guarantee. But our company culture demands nothing less. And neither should you.
--Jack Tone, Jr./Vice President
"Most People See A Backyard. We See A Canvas."
In a land of mass production and cookie cutter design, it's difficult to get anything exactly how you want it. Let's face it. We live in a great big McWorld, and most people have neither the time nor the inclination for things like individual attention of custom designed swimming pools. But not Mission Pools we have time for you.
We'll design your playground for you. As unique as a snowflake. And just as beautiful. You want elevated spas, we can do that. You want a vanishing edge design, we can do that too. You want a shallow end that cascades around your favorite ornamental garden, say no more. the look, the sound, even the feel of your pool is yours to imagine, and ours to create.
Each pool we build is a monument to our clients. Every design award we win (and we've won hundreds) belongs, in part, to them. Because without their vision and imagination, we wouldn't enjoy the reputation for excellence we do today.
--Don Ogden/Orange County Regional Manager
The hushed whisper of a limestone waterfall. the steamy touch of a scorching sun extinguished in an instant. A cool splash beneath the glow of a harvest moon. it's all very romantic. Until suddenly, you awaken to the sound of eight men digging a giant hole in your yard.
A Mission Pool is a dream come true. It's a dream that's built from the daily realities of several weeks of major construction. But we'll be with you every step of the way. From design to sculptured excavation. From steel web to hand-troweled plaster.
Empathy and wisdom. That's the key. It starts with listening to our clients, and ends with a wealth of experience. Experience building pools of every conceivable shape and size. From luxury resorts, to waterparks, to your home.
Every pool we've every built. Every lesson we've ever learned. Every success we've ever had. That's what your pool is made from.
--Brad Cotton/Regional Manager, San Deigo County
"You Won't Spend Nearly As Much Time Taking Care Of Your Pool, As it Will Of You."
A teal and white '57 Corvette. A rose garden in full bloom. A Mission Pool. All very beautiful. All very enjoyable. All in need of regular maintenance.
Having nice things is about having the wherewithal to take care of them. Your Mission Pool is no different. There are no gimmicks. No shortcuts. Only quality products and time-tested methods of maintenance which, by the way, take no tiem at all with our virtually hassle-free systems.
Pool maintenance has come along way over the years. At least it has at Mission Pools. It starts with technologically superior hydraulics. And with water purifying techniques that are no more complicated than opening a jar, yet advanced enough to be used by NASA.
Then ther are impoved pumps, more energy conscious than ever before. State-of-the-art heating systems that expend far less energy. Pool cleaners that... well, that actually work. And more efficient filters that need cleaning just once every two years.
With Mission Pools, drudgery is history. You give us a few minutes a week, we'll give you years of cookouts, cannonballs and lazy afternoons.
--Keith R. Mazone/Construction Division Manager, San Diego County
"It's Your Pool, But It's Our Reputation."
Obsessions are generally regarded as unhealthy. Something to be pitied. Or treated. so why is it we coddle ours?
You see, we're absessed with the service of our pools. Completely. Why else would we insist on doing our own warranty work? Whether we made the part that needs fixing or not. why else would we offer service any time, any place, whenever or wherever you need it?
No other builder backs their work the way we do. And it's likely you won't realize the depth of our obsession for many years. our pools are too well built. But if someday, something does go wrong, you'll appreciate our strange compulsion. And you'll never want us to be cured.
--Brad Bull/Regional Manager Orange & Riverside Counties
"It's Not The Magnitude Of The Project As Much As The Scope Of The Vision"
The key to life is simple. Figure out who you are, who you want to be and then do your best to get there. We are aquatic contractors with no limit to what we strive to build. As aquatic contractors we understand that the construction process can be a series of problems and solutions. The scope of the projects may vary but the quality of the execution should never waiver.
Hotels . . . Resorts . . . Municipalities . . . Water Parks . . . Government facilities . . . High Schools and Universities . . . we have built swimming pools for them all. What we have learned in constructing these larger than life pools we bring with enthusiasm to each and every job we do.
These types of swimming pools start with the same principals used in residential pool construction, however, the scale of the projects change by large multiples. The process of taking water from the pool, filtering that water, treating it with sanitizers and the placing it back into the pool becomes an engineering feat as the volume of water increases. Plumbing lines and fittings grow exponentially in size to handle the increased volumes and turnover requirements, large three phase pool pumps supply the filters with 1000’s of gallons of water per minute, swimming pool filters cleanse the flow, and sanitizing units balance the chemical composition of the water in the swimming pool, spa, wader or toy area of a water park by doing a quick analysis and then communicating the data to the feed pumps where the chemical distribution is achieved and the Health Department requirements for public safety is met all while entity provides enjoyment to the public.
Clients who have used Mission Pools to build their “Projects” include the United States Marines and Navy, universities from the University of California, Davis, south to the University of California, San Diego. There are five star resorts like Pelican Hills in Newport Coast to the Renaissance in Indian Wells. We have not met a swimming project that is too big, too complicated or too challenging for our team of experts at Mission Pools and for this we are thankful and proud. Aquatic construction at this level takes an organization with an excellent talent pool and support from financial institutions in the fields of insurance, bonding and banking. This is support that has been earned from year one of developing relationships. You do not just wake up one day and decide that this is who you want to be.

"The Complexities Of Engineering & Hydraulics, The Art & Science Of Fluid Movement ..."
At Mission Pools our commerial division begins working with the contractor, architect and engineers early on in the project in order to minimize the amount of time spent in the Health and Building Departments.
Commercial contractors put their trust in the construction of their swimming pool, spa, wader or fountain with the experts at Mission Pools. We have been in business since 1960 and we know our way around the inner workings of a commercial job site. They can trust us to use the "Code Of Safe Practices" on all our construction sites.
