America’s Original Precast Plunge Pool – Celebrating our 9th Year in Business

General FAQ

A Soake® Pool is a small deep pool, also known as a plunge pool, (or a cocktail pool, a small pool or a spool). A Soake Pool is a hybrid between a traditional pool and a hot tub because it can be used year round and heated to hot tub temps in cooler weather.

Soake® Pools are highly engineered precast concrete pools. They are fully tiled on the interior upon arrival.

Equipment Questions

Gas heaters in New England and colder climates or electric heaters or heat pumps in warmer climates are options that many people choose.

The equipment can be configured different ways, but in general, a 4’x6′ area is ample.

Your licensed electrician will make this determination, but typically 50 amps are run to the automation panel. This panel has its own electrical subpanel within it.

Soake Pools have an ETL listing for the bonding system.  Each pool comes with the ETL label, and ATM certificate and report are available upon request. Bonding lugs and copper wires are installed in NH prior to each shell being poured, and pools are tested for conductivity to ensure they pass.

Delivery Questions

Yes, we can ship anywhere in the US. For New England and most NY deliveries, we deliver pools on a boom truck when possible. For deliveries beyond New England and NY, we ship the pool on a flatbed and a local crane is hired to lift the pool from flatbed truck to prepared site.

We work closely with every customer to make this determination. When possible, we visit each site in person.
