Bay Area Pool Service is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2012. The company was founded in 1952 as Chittenden Pool Supply. Operations back then included commercial pool supply delivery, remodeling and repair. In 1971 the Crayton family purchased the business and began the transformation to Bay Area Pool Service.
When the Crayton Family bought the company we had 64 commercial accounts and 3 rented delivery trucks. Today we have over 7000 residential clients in the Greater Tampa Bay Area, and over 50 vehicles on the road every business day. We are residential in scope and provide pool cleaning, pool chemical service, pool repair and pool remodeling. The hard working employees, managers and owners of Bay Area Pool Service look forward to being the leaders and innovators of the pool service Industry for the next 60 years!
Over our history the company has done about everything there is to do in the pool industry; from building commercial projects, to retail pool supply. In the 1970’s during the hay day of in-ground spas we were the world’s largest Hydro Spa dealer. In the 1980’s we were hired by Freedom Federal to finish 80 residential pools when a large pool builder went out of business, beginning our residential pool construction operations.
Bay Area Pool Service is best known for our innovations in residential pool service. We brought residential gas chlorination to the state, every other week cleaning to screen enclosed pools, pool chemical only service, and our newest industry innovation the FREE use of a salt chlorine generator as part of our Premium Chemical Service.
