About Us

Pool Contractors Like No Other

Most of our new clients are a result of five-star referrals. We take the upmost pride in that. The materials, workmanship, components, and standards that we follow when building a custom inground pool far surpass those of other pool contractors. This core value allows us to refer potential clients to an unlimiting list of previous customers for referrals.

Arista was founded in 2004 and has been serving the area as one of the most sought after pool builders for 19 years! These days there are many “pool builders”, but very few have been around for 15+ years to have the experience required to leave you with an amazing project that will provide your family years of enjoyment.

Limiting the number of projects we accomplish in a season allows us to focus on the specific needs of each customer and devote more time to the details. That extra time spent in the pool construction process is essential when you are building a pool that is structurally sound and dependable—one that will last for generations. Having our own in-house crews using top of the line equipment has allowed us to fine tune our excavation and plumbing techniques. Our filtration flow systems are energy efficient and easily maintained—costing just a fraction of other systems—and saving our customers time and money.

When you view the beautiful inground swimming pools in our gallery, don’t jump to the conclusion that you could never afford us. You determine the budget that meets your needs and we will design a quality custom pool that fits those parameters. Once our professional designer measures, sketches and takes pictures of the potential pool site, we present you with a custom-designed plan free of charge. It will be a plan that fits your budget and your family’s needs. We trust that you will select Arista Pool & Spa. The best of the best when it comes to swimming pool contractors.

Being a customer of Arista Pools and then B & M Landscaping, I cannot compliment either company enough. They were beyond professional and responsive. Their design and ideas are amazing and we are so happy with what they have helped us create in our back yard. Their crews are also professional and always came when they said they would, which we have not always experienced with other contractors. I would highly recommend Arista and B & M to anyone looking to create an outside oasis!!

The final result exceeded our expectations!! Mike and his entire crew were professional, extremely hard working, and thorough from the planning stages all the way through the final unveiling. It is evident that they value hard work and relationships with their customers. We recommend them to anyone looking to transform their backyard!

I am so lucky to have chosen a team that pays so much attention to detail. They made our visions into a reality and beyond. They worked in a timely fashion, they were experienced, they were perfectionists, they were awesome. I feel like this experience was a dream, because the process went so smooth. Mike is the man, and his crew is all that! Highly recommend. No issues at all.

The township inspector stopped by to make sure final inspection was done and he mentioned how impressed he was with how “on top of everything” you were at Arista. He was loving how fast you were following up on inspection requests, and how nicely everything is coming together. He SPECIFICALLY compared it to other companies he has seen over the years and said ours was the best!! And he has been doing this for more than 20 years, for 2 different townships. That says a LOT!

Nick and Mike founded this company with the desire to deliver a very high-quality product with the best customer service in the industry. He also owns B&M Landscaping Co. Inc. which has been in business for 30+ years.

Mike Ciaccio III

Mike Ciaccio III son of Mike Jr. has grown up building swimming pools. With a business degree from Arcadia University and a passion for building incredible swimming pools for customers he started a vinyl swimming pool company New Age Vinyl Pools.

His primary focus is customer service and communicating with the customer. Keeping them in the loop as much as possible.

Since its induction into the gunite pool industry, Arista has become recognized as the premier pool builder in the area due to their focus on the highest quality workmanship and customer service.

5 questions the other swimming pool contractors hope you never ask…

At Arista Pool & Spa, we limit the amount of subcontracting we use to build our pool. Each company we use is the best in their respective field. We have worked with these companies for years and have great relationships with them. Not only are these contractors professional but everyone is friendly and has the upmost respect for the customer. Other swimming pool contractors sub out every single phase of construction. They use subs that give them the cheapest rate, regardless of the quality of their work. Often times they jump from sub to sub so there is no relationship there and subs treat their jobs as just another job. Ask any of our subs what they think of Arista and they will tell you how we are a step above the rest.

We treat each job as if it was our own home. In doing this, we ensure the job is completed in a timely matter. Our gunite pools typically take six to eight weeks from start to finish. We have completed pools in three weeks in the past. Many other contractors claim a six to eight-week finish but after ten weeks the customer is scratching their heads wondering what is going on. Our vinyl pool building process is truly a site to see. An Arista vinyl pool will have a two to three-week completion time from start to finish. In the past, we have built pools in just seven days! This incredible time frame can only be achieved by the way we operate our company. Speed without losing quality is usually a recipe for disaster, but operating this way from day one is just another normal day for Arista pools.

Arista pools take pride in that there are no hidden costs in our product. Many competitors have hidden costs for extra machine time during excavation. This is something we have found other competitors to really take advantage of and charge extra fees. When signing a contract for a pool, there are so many details it is easy to overlook an extra cost that will cost you thousands! Always check to ensure you are not being charged for something that you could get for free with Arista. We make everything you could encounter known right away. When buying from Arista pools, our main concern is your experience and by sneaking in hidden costs and fees, we could not achieve the reputation we have today.

If there is one thing that separates Arista from the other pool builders it is our reputation. We have our customers to thank for that. With such a focus on customer service, our customers rave over their experience with us. We often refer to our customers as our lead sales team, as they have nothing but good things to say. If you don’t believe us, check out our customer submitted testimonials. Many customers use marketing agencies to draft “fake” positive reviews. Not here at Arista, ask us about any customer referral on our site and you can ask them yourself how their project went!

The ideal person to monitor the construction of your swimming pool can only be one person. The owner of the company. No one has more invested in the success of your project then the owner of the company you hired. Many large companies lure you in with a low price, but the problem with that is you deal with a manager or salesperson throughout the build process. Mike Jr. and Mike III, owners of Arista Pool & Spa, monitor every job personally. If you had the chance to work with the owner of a company rather than an employee, who would you choose?
