It all began in 1978 when Don’s wife, Kay, claimed she would really like a swimming pool. Don was an employee of General Motors at the time and Kay was an ER nurse at Bethesda North. Don, the DIY guy he is, decided he could do this himself and proceeded to build his very first pool in their backyard. One pool turned into several for family and friends.
A few years later, General Motors closed the local plant and Don decided to turn his new “side job” into a company. Kay retired from nursing and Aqua-Tech Pools opened a small retail store in downtown Mason, OH. In 1993, Aqua-Tech Pools moved to West Chester and built a large retail store where they remain located today.
Joining Kay and Don in the company are son and daughter, Adam and Ashley. Adam began working at Aqua-Tech as a teenager learning the ropes with his dad and helping the service crews. Over the years he has evolved into a leader taking more of a project management role with new pool construction. Most days you can find him on a Bobcat making sure every detail is just right.
Ashley began working with Aqua-Tech as a teenager in the retail store helping her mom. She moved to California for 6 years where she acquired an interior design degree and worked in the architecture/interiors field. She moved back in 2008 and began working with Aqua-Tech again. By popular demand, Ashley started a valet service, cleaning pools on a weekly basis. Her role has evolved into design development and client relations. She is usually in the store with her dog, Haley, not far behind.
Together, Don, Kay, Ashley and Adam bring a vast array of experience to the clients they serve. They strive to create a family friendly environment from their door to yours!
