Northwest Indiana Pool Installers: Pool Pro Contractors V. Royal Pools

In our fourth installment of our comparison series versus other pool installers in Northwest Indiana, we’ll be taking a look at Pool Pro Contractors Inc.

We want to educate you on your options so you can make the best decision for you and your family! By no means is this series designed to put us above our competitors. Actually, it’s quite the opposite—we want to give you as much information about them as possible so you can compare them to one another, ourselves included.

We value your experience and happiness throughout the entire process of purchasing a pool, having it installed, and enjoying it for years to come. And frankly, what we offer isn’t the best fit for everyone—but that’s okay!

Our mission is to educate you. Your mission? To use the information provided to you through each pool installer as well as our webpages to educate yourself so you can make an informed decision on which installer to hire for their services.

So I guess that means you need the information, right? Well then, let’s get to it!

River Pools

Based out of Warsaw, VA, River Pools has almost 20 years of experience in the pool industry under their belt. They began solely as a pool installer, but later branched out into the manufacturing field, becoming one of the most prominent manufacturers in the industry today. With backgrounds in both aspects of the industry, they pride themselves on sharing their knowledge and being the leading educator on all things inground swimming pools.

Their pools carry a limited lifetime warranty and a full 15 years of coverage on the surface of the pool against osmotic blistering.

Vinyl Liner Pools

Our vinyl liner pools come in a variety of shapes, but we have found that customized vinyl liner pools are more popular as we can cater to most design requests from our clients! The steel that we use for the pool walls is manufactured from Cardinal Pool Systems in Pennsylvania. The warranty on their steel warrants that the wall panels and braces to be free of defects in material and workmanship that would render the pool non-functional. This is promised to both the original residential purchaser as well as a properly registered second owner for the duration of their ownership.

Our vinyl liners are made by Tara Liners, who have been manufacturing liners since 1984. They focus on investing in the finest virgin vinyl in America as it is proven to fit better and have a linger lifespan.

Their warranty offers a 20-year pro-rated liner with a 5-year full replacement on manufacturer’s defect.

Pool Pro Contractors Inc.

As a smaller, family-owned business, Pool Pro Contractors Inc. doesn’t service an area that is too expansive—only the Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties. However, servicing a smaller area has allowed them to establish a client base with whom they have strong relationships with!

Now, they only install vinyl liner pools, but that means that they focus the most on such pools and innovations made to them. Many pool installers have a combination of fiberglass, vinyl liner, and concrete pools available to prospective clients, but Pool Pro Contractors Inc. has taken a different route.

And with this different route, they’ve created a unique identity for themselves in an area that is home to quite a few pool installers.

Royal Pools and More

At Royal Pools and More we have never focused too much on quantity of pools but always try to be a teacher of all things pools.  We have the highest quality materials and installation techniques.

The first thing for us that hopefully brings you quality is that we try to be as transparent and educational as possible (being the teacher). We know that inground swimming pools are huge investments and are something special that few are fortunate enough to include in their own backyards. In order to give you as much quality as possible, we have to be 100% transparent about who we are, what we do, and educate you on all things pools for you to make the best decision for you and your family!

This is why we make sure to produce educational content regularly in the form of articles and videos. We want you to be as knowledgeable and informed as possible about inground swimming pools! Heck, in this case, even our competition!

The second thing we pride ourselves on is our high-quality products and are very strict pool installation techniques! We make sure we install only the industry’s best products, preferably all American-Made when possible, that also carry the pool industry’s best warranties!

Who is Right for You?

The only person who has the answer to this question is you!

By the end of your researching process, you should know your wants, needs, visions, budget, etc. And you should also know who will help you get everything that you want from an inground swimming pool.

Your satisfaction with the pool buying and installation process is the most important thing both to you and ourselves. And if we can’t provide you with everything that you need, that’s okay! We understand! There could very well be a better fit for you, and it’s up to you to find it.

So, we hope that the information we’ve provided to you helps you find the best fit to create the backyard of your dreams! And if you’d like to take a look at some of our other competitors, you can check out some of the other installments in this series!
