Innovations in Tampa Pool Service
Bay Area Pool Service, headquartered in Tampa, FL., is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year! Our 74 employees are proud to provide excellent pool service to Tampa Bay, who has relied upon us since 1952. We are honored to say that over 500 of our current 7000 customers have been with us for over 20 years.
The company was founded in 1952 as Chittenden Pool Supply. In the 1950’s, Chittenden Pool Supply 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. That year, we had 64 commercial accounts and 3 trucks servicing the Tampa Bay area. Today, Bay Area Pool Service has over 7000 residential clients in the Greater Tampa Bay area with over 55 vehicles on the road every business day.
Bay Area Pool Service is best known for our innovative pool service that pool owners rely upon! Our cost and time saving innovations include:
• Introduced residential gas chlorination pool chemical service to the Bay area in 1974, allowing us to keep your pool swim safe for as little as $1 per day!
• In 1975, we introduced every other week pool cleaning service for screen enclosed pools providing affordable pool cleaning.
• Bay Area Pool Service became the innovators of low cost “Pool Chemical Only Service” throughout Tampa Bay, allowing service professionals to handle all of our customers’ chemical needs.
• In 2007, Bay Area Pool Service introduced our ground-breaking pool chemical treatment, providing the “FREE Use of a Salt Chlorine Generator,” as part of our Premium Chemical Service. This revolutionary service brings clients the benefits of swimming in a salt chlorine generator pool without the high cost of ownership.
• In 2008, we led the market in the adoption of money saving, advanced technology variable speed pool motors. 4 years before the law required their use.
These are just some of the innovations proving our motto: “We Do All the Work, You Have All the Fun”!
In addition to servicing the entire Tampa Bay area, Bay Area Pool Service has opened up its first location outside of the Tampa area. On June 1st, our new SunCoast Division opened in the Springhill and Brooksville area. This new division is the first of many branch offices that Bay Area Pool Service will open as we begin our next 60 years!
Thank you Tampa Bay, for an exciting first 60 years!
