Design Process

JoPa Company’s reputation has been built on nearly sixty years of quality, craftsmanship, reliability, and most importantly, customer satisfaction. At JoPa company, we listen first. Then we take your conceptual ideas and guide you through the many design options… from the traditional to the extravagant.

If you don’t already have something in mind, we will help you develop a clear idea of what you want. Each design has been carefully drawn utilizing CAD technology. Safety and code regulations are strictly adhered to and applied. We evaluate site conditions for slope and drainage when necessary.

We make recommendations to minimize typography alterations. Step-by-step, the original drawing evolves and a detailed, customer plan take shape. Since 1959, every JoPa pool has been specifically designed for each individual customer.

JoPa’s Swimming Pool Design Process. A Better Plan. A Better Pool.

No one has the means and know how to plan and build your pool like JoPa. With more combined experience than anyone else in Virginia, we can tell you up front what will work, why, and sometimes why it won’t work. Yet experience alone is not what makes JoPa Company the leader in concept design and construction. It was one of the first companies nationwide to affiliate with the swimming pool industry’s national trade association, the National Spa and Pool Institute (NSPI). As such, we regularly participate in discussions with other national leaders in the pool construction business. Additionally, we seek out the latest technology available. We run our own tests to determine if new products such as automatic controls, fiber optics, building materials, filtration, and sanitation devices measure up to our high performance standards. By incorporating superior products with an unparalleled level of experience, JoPa ensures the best design from below the ground and up.


“It’s a JoPa pool.”

JoPa has the expertise and equipment to implement your style and design as it was planned. Your complete satisfaction is at the core of our business. We own and operate our own equipment, therefore, it stays on the job until the job is done right. We employ quality, professional craftsmen. Our in-house staff allows us to perform all construction requirements, including site-work, layout, carpentry, excavation, electrical, plumbing, concrete, masonry, and tile work. Each is an individual trade in itself, however at JoPa we can do it all.
The highly skilled foreman who supervises your construction knows it is the attention to details that you never see that will add to the longevity of your pool. And he’ll make sure all requirements are not only met but exceeded every level. It’s no wonder real estate agents will often mention JoPa by name in their listings “…with a beautiful JoPa pool.”
This is a testament to our commitment to excellence. If it’s a JoPa pool, it was meticulously built by JoPa people every step of the way. No other pool adds value to a home like a JoPa pool. Our reputation for quality and value has even taken us beyond residential and commercial swimming pool construction to large commercial construction projects, including the VCU School of Engineering, James Madison University Dining Hall extension and the City of Lynchburg Municipal Parking Deck. Additionally, JoPa has consulted and participated on several bridge, dam spillway projects and elevator shaft repairs. These experiences and the knowledge gained from them have only enhanced our primary focus – planning, designing and building the most beautiful, yet trouble free swimming pools money can buy. In fact, we’re so confident in our work we offer a unique 5 year structural warranty.
