Kelly and Mike each have over 30 years experience in the swimming pool industry. Both started their careers on the retail side at Leslie’s Swimming Pool Supplies. They later decided to open their own business and provide the same high level of service and friendly knowledge that their retail customers had become accustomed to.
Kelly and Mike perform the cleaning, repairs and are always directly accessible to the customer. Many large competitors hire inexperienced people who have little knowledge about swimming pools and lack personal attention to your needs. Our policy also doesn’t bind you to a strict and mandated contract. We bill you for services provided and equipment costs but only as you require it. We make sure that all your pool needs are serviced in a professional and prompt manner.
The number one thing that makes us different is that you will always deal directly with the owners.
