About Wagner Pools
Wagner Pools – a family-owned business – was founded in 1919, and thus holds the unique title of “The oldest swimming pool company in the country.” We’ve built a reputation for quality with residential and commercial contractors, with special emphasis on high-end homeowners looking to build, renovate or upgrade a custom pool.
Based in Darien Connecticut, the majority of our clients are around Westchester New York and Fairfield Connecticut though it’s not unusual for us to go as far away as Ohio, or Jamaica, or Cape Cod Massachusetts.

Our Amazing History as America’s Oldest Swimming Pool Company
The year was 1919. America was in its heyday, Hollywood introduced “talkies”, John D. Rockefeller amassed vast fortunes, the Flapper Era was in full swing and Edward L. Wagner founded what today is the country’s oldest swimming pool company.
In the same vein as the great baths of Rome, Wagner introduced New England to the splendor of public swimming in the privacy of one’s own backyard. His first masterwork was for Hollywood producer Adolph Zukor, for whom he tiled the pool’s interior end-to-end.
For Wagner, it was a time of artistry and discovery. If it did not exist, he invented it. Far ahead of his time, he developed the first swimming pool purification system to use ultra-violet rays. He was committed to building the strongest, most beautiful and easy-to-maintain swimming pools in the world. Today, Wagner continues to bring the most sophisticated systems in heating, cleaning and automation.
If you’re thinking of building or simply updating an existing pool, you can count on the same tradition of excellence that Wagner has brought to America’s backyard for generations.
