Welcome to California Poolside
Hey! My name is Mark Sidway, and swimming pools are my life. Way back when I was a kid, my parents used to take me to the neighborhood pool all the time. I always used to wonder why pools came in the same rectangles and ovals—why did they look the same?
If you just want to take a dip, it doesn't matter much how nice the pool is. Water is water. But a backyard pool is much more than a big bathtub—it becomes a gathering place for your family and friends. And the fastest way to ruin that gathering place is by building an ugly pool. Amazing pools, on the other hand, create a personal oasis of tranquility and relaxation.
That, my friends, is how California Poolside was born.
For 15 years, I've trekked all over California searching out the craziest, most passionate pool mavericks I could find. In that time, California Poolside has dreamed up and constructed the most incredible pools and spas in Encinitas. Our goal is simple—defeating all the problems that come along with normal pool builders. Say goodbye to lame design, poor craftsmanship, inflated costs, and a lack of people skills. Our customers just love working with us.
Are you dreaming of a better back yard with a beautiful pool as the centerpiece? Well wake up and give us a call. Your fantasy pool is within reach, and we're going to help you get it. Let's get building.

A pool isn't just a big hole filled with concrete. Well, I guess some contractors have that opinion. But for us, great pools must begin with great design. Your backyard oasis can't fit inside a box. We'll bring your vision to life using detailed sketches and 3D renderings to show you exactly what you'll get—and exactly what's possible for your home.
Design? Nailed. Let's get to work. From lights to pumps to digging to cement and stonework, we'll take care of every little detail to make sure your pool is ready for action. That means finishing as fast as possible without sacrificing quality. Speaking of quality, we've got all the craftsmanship you can handle. Your new pool is going to look and work great, and more importantly it's going to last.
Lots of other pool builders are survive on hype and shifty sales talk. When it's time to walk the walk, things fall apart. We're talking torn up yards, surly workers, broken promises, missed deadlines, and final results that look nothing like you expected. As for us...what you see is what you get. If you're ready to work with friendly people who just plain love pools, we want to hear from you TODAY!
There are a ton of factors that affect price for each project. However, you can rest assured you'll be getting a very competitive bid for your pool. We encourage our customers to shop around to see for themselves.Learn More
As long as it takes.
The bottom line is that we want to build something that we can both be proud of. We work surprisingly fast, but different projects will take different amounts of time depending on its size and scope.
That said, we've completed projects in as little as a few weeks. After we come up with our the final design we always map out the construction process, which will give you a very solid idea on the time frame we're working with.Learn More
