About Aqua Pools
The “idea” of Aqua Pools started in the spring of 1974 when we completed our first in ground pool. At that time it was under the name of Mr. Macks in-ground pool division. After the first few pools were finished, word of our quality in ground pools spread throughout Evergreen Park and Orland Park. Mr. Macks became so busy with in ground swimming pools that in the fall of 1978 a separate entity was formed and Aqua Pools officially became a reality and the Aqua Pools Family started.
At first, our base of operations was a garage. Since we provided our customers with chemicals as well, the storage of chemicals made things interesting. The chlorine that we stored in the garage caused the cars that shared that space to start to rust and to pit. Eventually, in 1980, we opened our first store in Oak Lawn. There, we expanded our product offering to above ground pools, pool equipment, pool toys and service. As our Aqua Family grew, we opened another store in Lockport and expanded our product offering once again to carry Spas and Hot Tubs.
Because of how quickly we were expanding along with our stores limited parking situation, we needed an upgrade! So we acquired property down the street, in Worth, that allowed for the much needed expansion. Even though our new store was a great upgrade, we quickly outgrew that space as well. In 2004 we had an opportunity to acquire more property that allowed for increased efficiency, storage and a more centralized location for our base of operations for in ground pool construction. This also gave us a unique opportunity to offer Fiberglass Pools to our customers. In 2005, we closed our Lockport store and had the Grand Opening for our new, second location in Homer Glen. With all the hard work from our, ever expanding, Aqua Family, partnering with leaders in the industry (like Latham Pools, Hayward, Bioguard and the Big Green Egg) and the great customers that trust in us every year, this will not be the end of our expansion!
All in all, ever since 1974, we've pushed to advance our Aqua Family to become leaders in our industry. Our Aqua Family has won the Regional Excellence Award From Latham Pools in 2015 and 2016. We didn't receive these awards because we are the biggest, we earned them by making sure that our customers felt like they became part of the Aqua Family. With all the options out there, we help you decide what is the best option your you and your family. So on your next backyard project, whether it is a small job or a brand new installation, our Aqua Family is here to help your family!
