The original pool was built in the 1960’s. Portofino Pools was awarded a renovation contract in 1997 and at completion awarded a contract for complete Swimming Pool Operations: cleaning, maintenance, chemicals and water-quality services. Portofino Pools has performed these services continuously for the past 19+ years.
In 2010 Portofino Pools was retained as an aquatic consultant to study and submit recommendations for a major remodel design and engineering to demolition the existing floor sloping from 3-feet to 18-foot depth and re-build at a nominal 5-foot depth. It was determined the cost to so would approach the cost of building new and the existing wall structure, circulation, and filtration systems were beyond life expectancy. We consulted with the school regarding selection of the construction firm and design. The new pool features an 8-lane, 25-yard pool. In 2011 Portofino Pools was retained to study and make recommendations to add a complete heating system to the pool. Our recommendations were accepted and we were awarded a contract to install the first commercial state-of-the-art “green” geothermal heating and cooling pool system in Northeast Florida. The pool has maintained at constant temperature of 82 degrees 365 days for the past 5-years. Energy cost savings achieved ROI in 30 months.
