easy-to-use 'add-in' software for Microsoft VisioTM
and ExcelTM designed for
pool builders to create
professional pool plans and construction drawings with estimates much faster
and easier than other CAD-based systems. It is built using the power of
to provide the user with an easy-to-use design program that anyone
can use to create professional pool plans, sales plans, and pool estimates in just minutes!
Why is our Pro-SuiteTM1D so different than the many generic landscape-type programs you've
already tried? Our software is created for the pool builder, owner-builder, pool
designer to accurately visualize, calculate, estimate, build and manage your
projects, and also produces a proposal and contract, scheduling, and much more.
Once our Pro-SuiteTM
software is installed, you will have 100's of pre-made and fully-editable CAD
shapes and tools in Visio that you can 'drag-n-drop' instantly to create your drawing
(which you can
edit or create your own). Also you'll enjoy unique time-saving features such as
instant 'design' tools and over 80 pre-made plans & templates that professional
builders have relied on for years. You can draw in any scale, any paper size,
import plot plans,
faxes and hand-drawings and make them to scale, add construction details, and many more features
that other programs don't have!
Also ask about our new PRO-SUITE 3DTM
that can create amazing 3D designs and presentations using a popular landscape
program and without the need for Visio on your computer!
Q.Can I create a
plan from scratch or make custom shapes?
Yes, our shapes will help speed up the design process by allowing you to
'drag-n-drop' approx. 80% of your plan. Also,
you can create a plan from scratch, or modify any of our shapes & objects and save them as your own!
Q.Can I modify
these shapes? (resize, reshape, etc.)
Yes, all shapes are fully-modifiable, editable, and scaleable,
and capable of instant
modifications using our built-in 'measure tool' (an extremely accurate virtual 'planimeter'
that is built right into the program
(valued over $500), just click on any
shape the view or modify
when changing pools or decks!)
Q.Can I use existing hand-drawings or plot plans ?
Yes, Pool Templates allows the designer
to insert scanned images (city plot plans, hand-drawings, even pictures) into your
drawing. You can can also convert to and from any scale - without the need to
trace it!, and you can include the plot plan within your drawing.
Q.Can I design or convert plans
to different scales ?
Yes, Pool Templates allows you to design in any scale
(Architectural, Engineering, Metric, or Custom). You can also convert
your plans or scans
to-or-from any scale at any time, even faxed plans (which
typically are not scaled) can be made to scale! You can also:
- Change to US Imperial or Metric
Import or export to AutoCADTM
Print to any size
paper (letter, legal, ledger, all blue-print size, etc.).
Will your software run on Windows Windows 10 ?
A. Our PRO-SUITE 1D works with all ALL Windows versions:
(Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10) l 32 & 64 bit Windows PCs are supported.
Which version of MS Office can I use?
Any locally installed edition of Microsoft Office or
Excel (2007 or higher) is supported (Excel 2007-2016)
Microsoft Excel must be locally
installed on your computer,
meaning you can use Office without an internet connection.

'Open Office' or 'Libre Office' as well as any Mac based Excel or Office
are not supported.
I need to be on the internet to use the programs?
No, you do not need to be on the internet to operate our programs.
Also, there are no monthly logins or yearly updates required!
I need to
purchase Microsoft Office Visio eventually?
Only our PRO-SUITE 1D requires Visio. If you are using the Visio trial version
then at some point you will need to have to
purchase any version of Visio. Visio 2010 (any edition)is best
Always install the 32-bit version of Visio for best results (even
with 64-bit computers). Visio 2013-2016 is not recommendedif you want
to use our 3D fills as it removes
display options for 3D fills.
Can I use this program to produce a permit plan?
You can create a pool plan for the permit process using this program to show all
the necessary items for the build plan submittal. In some cities you will be
required to also show a cross-section 'standard-plan' of the pool wall which can
be obtained by your local engineer's office.
