Premier Pools & Spas Selects May’s Pool of the Month

Rio Grande Valley, TX Pool Builders Construct Timeless Piece

PPAS has selected Premier’s Rio Grande Valley franchise as May 2021’s Pool of the Month winner. This project was submitted by Anna Mandea, the salesperson and co-owner of this Texas office.

Anna and her husband, Alex, have been Premier franchise owners since 2020. They are excited about this recognition and are overjoyed by the success of their entire team. 

This month’s pool, built in McAllen, Texas, is a gunite/shotcrete classic with clean and stunning custom features that provide a complete backyard transformation. The 15’ x 37’ pool includes a calming waterfall and a sunken patio with a wood-burning fire pit, making it a homeowner’s personal retreat. 

The pool has a Laguna interior finish and features beautiful designs such as blue tile and ivory travertine. 

Anna said this project was challenging, as problems and last-minute changes emerged during the process. The pool had to be shifted after a request from the homeowner, which caused the excavation line to cut close to the house.

After consulting with code officials, all parties were able to agree that the pool did not compromise its surrounding area. The Rio Grande Valley team was able to make the unforeseen circumstances of the project work and did so with the customer in mind. 

Their team worked endlessly to provide the homeowners with their dream backyard and were pleased with how well the project turned out. Their favorite part was seeing how much their work transformed the yard and the impact it made. 

Anna is proud of the accomplishments her team made, especially with being so new to the swimming pool industry. She valued their role in this life-changing opportunity not only for the homeowners but for themselves.

Pool of the Month winners receive the opportunity to have a donation made out to their favorite charity on behalf of PPAS. Anna and Alex picked Engineers Without Borders International (EWB-I) as their charity as it is very dear to their hearts. Before becoming a franchisee, Alex had always wanted to be an engineer in Romania, building bridges and roads. EWB-I sends engineers to areas where a bridge can make all the difference in a child’s life. According to Anna, the addition of a bridge could make attending school a possibility for a village. With the work of this charity, communities can get the help they need to survive and improve their lives, fulfilling the Mandea family’s wish to help make a difference.

Premier franchisees are encouraged to submit their backyard projects for a chance to be featured.
