85+ Years in the Making
Mike Hodak’s experience in the pool building industry began long before he was old enough to know it was his calling. It all started when his Uncle Louie and Uncle Andy helped construct the North Park Pool in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1935. At the time, it was the largest inground pool ever constructed, holding 2,225,000 gallons of water and has enough room for 5,000 people to swim.
Growing up, Mike helped his father Frank build concrete pools from an early age (see photo below of one of his father’s residential inground pools built in the 1950’s). With his confidence as a second generation pool builder, he built his first waterfall in 1985 and the rest is history.
Over 20,000 Pools
As a long respected family business, since it’s inception in 1950’s, the Hodak family has impressively installed over 20,000 pools in the greater Pittsburgh area. The family has also accumulated 8 international patents pertaining to the pool industry and used by pool companies worldwide for over half a century, in addition to installing the first vinyl lined swimming pool in the United States in the early 1960’s. When we say we know pools, we mean it.
