20 years of experience in every facet of the swimming pool industry!
Beginning in 1997 I started working in the pool industry for a retail and service company called Leslies Pool Supplies. Here, I learned everything about water chemistry to equipment shop repair. I achieved my first C.P.O. certification and within two years I was promoted to Store Manager. I was flown out to Kansas City to attend Leslies University of Retail Management. I managed my own Leslies in Chespeake, VA for two years after that. With that knowledge I began to gain in the swimming pool industry, it made me want to learn more and I wanted to become a Field Technician. In 2001 I began work for a large private company as a Tech in traning and soon after was certified by the APSP as a Tech 1 in 2004. Shortly after I became a Tech 2 certified Technician in 2005. Taking every vendor course that I could find in my area, I was soon promoted to Service Coordinator.
Since I was still hungry for knowledge in the industry, I decided to get into the building of pools. I left my comfortable management position to work for a smaller pool builder, which here I gained knowledge and experience building/installing fiberglass, vinyl liner and different types of concrete pools. and water fountains. We did Residential and Commercial projects. After a year of building pools I had learned all I could and was ready to move on again.
I was offered an opportunity to work with a company called The Pool Guyz. They are Fiberglass pool Installers for Viking Pools. I came on board as the Lead Technician and Service Coordinator. We were involved with many projects and had the opportunity to work with T.L.C.'s Extreme Makeover Home Edition and Little People Big World. I had finally found my niche and was a tremendous help to the success of the company.
A little more than a year after working with The Pool Guyz I was called back home to St. Croix for family reasons.
With years of experience in the industry renovating, buidling, repairing, management, consulting, etc..., I decided to open my own business here in the islands. AquaTek has been doing business on St. Croix for over 6 years now. In 2014 two of our St. Croix projects were seen on national television by HGTV "House Hunters". We have completed many other projects on St. Croix, mostly renovations, both in Residential and Commercial.
With a crew of APSP trained and certified Service Techinicans, AquaTek provides St. Croix with years of training, knowledge and experience in the swimming pool industry.
