BC Luxury Pool Builder Alka Pool Celebrates Sixtieth Anniversary

Founded by a trio of brothers in 1961, Alka Pool has become one of the leading luxury pool builders in British Columbia.

On March 12, Alka Pool Construction Ltd. reached their diamond anniversary, celebrating sixty sparkling years in the swimming pool industry.

Alka Pool, a family-owned and -operated company, was founded by three brothers who brought their European craftsmanship to the Greater Vancouver area. Alka Pool started humbly as a local pool builder in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland, and now builds high-quality, high-end poolscapes both in the residential and commercial markets throughout British Columbia.

Highlighting their achievements in quality, Alka Pool was elected into the prestigious Master Pools Guild in 1978, a guild which adheres to strict standards and a code of ethics. Their core values also align with Alka Pool’s: quality craftsmanship, integrity, fostering relationships, and forward thinking. Since its inception in 1961, Alka Pool has a reputation for unparalleled customer service, technical innovation, and attention to the smallest detail.

“I am so proud of Alka Pool, each and every employee, seeing the knowledge they have gained and achievements they have accomplished,” says Larry Sovernigo, founder of Alka Pool. “From Alka’s beginnings with very limited knowledge, to today, building award-winning pools beautiful in both look and structure, technically superior with every luxury. Congratulations!”

In 2008, the next generation and current owners took over the helm leading the company to the next level and towards an exciting future. Alka Pool’s experienced team continues to make strides in the industry specializing in custom built swimming pools, hot tubs, and water features. They focus not only on the functional aspect of the space but also ensure that there is an organic flow from the house to the outdoor living area or indoor swimspace.

“Our continued commitment to see our clients’ visions fulfilled for years of poolside enjoyment fuels Team Alka Pool’s passion and dedication to poolside living,” says Carla Sovernigo, president of Alka Pools.

Always at the forefront of the industry, Alka Pool has won numerous national and international pool awards including the coveted MPG Grand International Award’s “Best Pool in the World” three times (1991, 2014, and 2019). Team Alka Pool has also been recognized over the years for their technical experience with numerous Technical Achievement Awards. Today, Alka Pool is considered BC’s premier luxury pool builder creating lifestyle-inspired waterscapes.
