Luxury, integrity & experience

Aqua Pools builds luxury backyard pools and living areas that are used and loved throughout the Lehigh Valley.

We believe pools should be more than just a place to swim; they are an extension of your home, a place for family and friends to gather around and enjoy together. In addition to creating beautiful new spaces for you, our team is dedicated to providing the best service possible by listening to your needs, staying on schedule, and exceeding expectations.

The Aqua Pools team understands the importance of creating a beautiful, functional and durable product that is built to last. From our custom in-ground pools to our luxury backyard living areas, we work with our clients to create an experience that is unique to their lifestyles and needs. Our goal is to provide the best backyard addition possible while staying within a budget that fits your needs.


Frank Bast

Frank is the Owner and President of Lehigh Valley Aqua Pools. Frank started in the pool industry in 1988 working a summer job with a local pool installation crew. In 1992, he started his own business as a subcontractor installing vinyl pools. For the next ten years he grew his business installing pools and built his reputation to be one of the best pool builders in the Lehigh Valley. In 2002, he began his professional relationship with the owner of the retail store known as Aqua Pools and became a partner with them to sell and install pools together.

Four years after that, Frank purchased the entirety of Aqua Pools and became the sole owner. To continue the growth of the company, the service department was expanded to help previous customers maintain their new backyard getaways. While Aqua Pools was known for their vinyl pool installations, in 2009 they began to install gunite pools to expand their capabilities and clientele. Having spent the last 12 years perfecting his craft, Frank decided it was time to expand and began the process of acquiring Lehigh Valley Pools. Frank may be the president of Aqua Pools but he still is the driving component that completes jobs. He spends most days in the excavator digging pools and is active on every job that is sold to ensure that the end product is exactly what the customer is looking for. His experience and knowledge is unmatched and is a huge part of the successful completion of the custom backyard designs we create.
