Artists in the medium, water.

We don't design backyards... we design experiences.


A lifetime of hands on experience meets a life long passion for design and an affinity for water. At Smart Aquatics, we incorporate these truths into every project, creating original design concepts that look stunning, make you feel some type of way and function perfectly. Every design is created to be a unique expression of your individual lifestyle, tailored to suit your needs. Smart Aquatics specializes in creative outdoor living designs specializing in aquatics for high end outdoor living areas with pools, spas, and water elements of all kinds. 


Energy efficient hydraulic design

"The design is not just what it looks like and feels like. The design is how it works."
- Steve Jobs

Pools and water features are fully functioning bodies of water that require precise hydraulic calculations in order to achieve beautiful watery aesthetics like infinity edges and water walls. Smart Aquatics provides precise hydraulic designs moving a larger volume of water, slower through piping in order to reduce velocity and increase energy efficiency. Our plumbing and equipment specifications exceed local and national velocity requirements, reducing backpressure and resistance within piping which increases equipment efficiency and longevity.


3d rendering

Architectural visualization tools

Approximately 65% of the population are visual learners. 

Most people process information based on what they see so having an image or video to look at, helps you better understand the project in order to make informed decisions. At Smart Aquatics, we help you visually explore the spatial properties of your project so you can feel comfortable with the overall project aesthetic and experience. We provide professional renderings and videos using industry leading architectural visualization software. 



Permit ready plans

A pool is only as good as its plans.

We pride ourselves in providing some of the absolute best construction documents in the business. Our plans are highly detailed making it easier for you to read and reference in-field during construction. A set of Smart Aquatics CD's include everything from site plans, plan views, plumbing layouts, piling layouts, sections, isometrics, lighting, heating, automation, specialty edge conditions, hydraulics, equipment layouts and equipment specifications. Our plans are signed and sealed by a licensed engineer ready to submit for permit. We work with homeowners, contractors architects, landscape architects, and developers to provide a quality set of plans to build from. 


In-field experience

Projects may begin in the office but they are finished in the field. At Smart Aquatics, we have extensive in-field experience from a second generation pool professional who can oversee project progress and  of all sizes. We will ensure your project is designed, coordinated and constructed properly.
