Welcome to California Poolside
Hey, I'm Mark Sidway! And I really, really love a good pool. Hopefully, you do too. When I was growing up, I always wondered why pools came in just two shapes—rectangles and ovals. I mean, we couldn't do better than that?
Yeah, if you just want to take a dip on a hot day, all you need is some water. But does a big concrete box look nice in your back yard? Not really. A swimming pool is a massive investment—a great pool boosts the appearance of your home, while an ugly pool makes you dread looking at your back yard.
That's why I founded California Poolside.
For 15 years, I've scoured the land far and wide to find the most dedicated pool people on planet Earth. The folks here at California Poolside just love pools, period. My team's Number One priority is helping you avoid the frustrations of working with most other pool builders—inflated costs, amateur construction, horrible design, and a total lack of people skills. Our customers just love working with us, and that's why one guy referred to as Pool Gods.
Well, forget divine intervention. Our swimming pools are real, and they're looking for a home—your home. Stop dreaming, stop wondering, stop debating. Get in touch with us right now, and let's get to work.

Ask another pool builder for some grand designs, and they'll tackle your project like they're building a parking garage—all function, no style. Well, a great pool looks good too. You need dreamers to help bring your pool to life, and that's just what we'll do. Through sketches and renderings, we'll help harness your vision to construct the most incredible pool for your budget, space, and life.
Of course, craftsmanship is critical too. If your pool leaks, or it's made out of shoddy materials, well...you won't be enjoying it for very long. California Poolside has you covered. From pumps to lights, excavation to stone work, we'll take care of every single little detail your pool needs to get up and running for the Big Day.
A lot of pool contractors are like used car salesman. They're great at spinning facts and stretching the truth. But pool builders are a dime a dozen, and new companies are going out of business every year. California Poolside has been around for 15 years, and it's not just because our pools are the best. No, friend. It's because we treat our customers the best. We meet deadlines. We keep promises. We build what you want, not what we think you want. And we're all super friendly, to boot. You're just gonna love working with us.
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
Finding the right contractor to build a swimming pool is not easy. However, with a little research and ground work you can quickly filter through all the dodgy companies and find the right swimming pool builder for your needs. Here are a few critical things you need to check out before you invest:
Designing a pool in your backyard can be a fun adventure with the right company, and a chore with the wrong company. Since a major home improvement like this can cost as much as a brand-new BMW, it’s essential to do it right.
That's why we put so much effort and energy into the design process. We're going to sit down with you several times and get to work designing the perfect pool for your family, yard, and budget. We make sure all your bases are covered, right from the start.Learn More
