Welcome to California Poolside

Voted one of Huntington Beach California's top pool builders/contractors.

Mark Sidway

Founder

Hi I'm Mark Sidway, and I'm a little obsessed with swimming pools. Way back when, I was just a little kid with a big dream—building swimming pools that actually looked cool, fun, relaxing, even BEAUTIFUL. I knew we could do better than the typical ovals and rectangles that used to dot every backyard in Huntington Beach.

Sure, some people just want to cool off on a stifling afternoon. Water is water, right? But if you've ever seen an ugly, boring pool, you know that it totally ruins the look and feel of your back yard. On the other hand, a beautiful pool makes you happy to wake up every morning—and even happier when you get home after work.

That's exactly how California Poolside got started.

For 15 years now, my team of pool mavericks and I have been designing and building some of the most incredible pools in Huntington Beach. California Poolside's goal is to free our customers of the hassles associated with other pool contractors—exorbitant costs, lame design philosophy, poor craftsmanship, and not smiling enough. Our customers love working with us, and we LOVE our customers.

You have big ideas for your pool, and you don't need to settle. Stop fantasizing about your new pool and let's get to work! Give us a call right away—your dream pool is within reach.

Concerned about the California drought? Pools actually SAVE water over grass!

“We worked with a pool company at our last house and those guys were just plain RUDE! Cigarette butts everywhere, trash in the yard...yuck. Anyway, California Poolside was amazing! It was like inviting a bunch of friends over to work on our pool. Thank you!"

“We'd been putting off building a pool for 2 years because we just couldn't find the right contractor. Every mock-up for our designs looked bad. California Poolside totally nailed our design on the first shot, and the pool completely lived up to our expectations."

Mitch Miller

“I was really tired of pool builders telling me I'd have to 'scale back' my expectations. That just means you don't know what you're doing! California Poolside made a masterpiece in my yard, and my family couldn't be happier. We use our pool all the time!”

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.
