The Van Kirk Pools Difference

Our philosophy today is the same as it was then, over 40 years ago: “Build each pool as if it were going in your own backyard, and treat each customer like family.” And that philosophy has helped us become the clear South Florida leader in both residential and commercial pool & spa construction, remodeling, manufacturing, and repairs.

Our attention to detail and customer service is the best, bar none—regardless of the size or scope of the project. And today, over 18,000 pools later, the Van Kirk family remains dedicated to our most valuable resource— you, our customers.

It is this very spirit that continues to differentiate us from our competitors.

  • This company has been family owned & operated since 1975, and has thousands of happy clients over the course of 40 years.
  • We own and operate a 20,000 sqft facility, which includes fully operational indoor pool showroom, warehouse, fleet of trucks and heavy duty equipment, and a vast selection of decorating tile and decking materials.
  • We believe in simple access to business owners due to our passion in waterscape design and construction.
  • Our pools include a lifetime structural warranty, flotation insurance, and an in-house service and warranty department.
  • We have daily meetings with our construction department to ensure first-class attention and service to each one of our customers.
