Best of Two Worlds


Pools by John Clarkson (PBJC) offers its clients top-notch service, times two. On one hand, the company is backed by the strength of the nationally prestigious membership-only group Aquatech, a Society of Pool-Building Professionals. On the other, the company has earned a reputation for providing the type of personal service that can only come from a long-standing, locally owned company. In the end, the homeowner wins with a quality of service that is second to none.


PBJC, like all members of Aquatech, embraces the importance of ongoing education. Multiple programs are in place to keep the company current with industry trends and new methods of design and construction. In fact, PBJC was national host for the most recent Aquatech Institute Advanced Builders program. More than 30 builders and other industry experts from across the nation came together to share and discuss the most advanced design and building practices.


Founder John Clarkson has over 40 years of pool-building experience and has garnered numerous awards and honors for the company. According to vice president and lead design consultant Jordan Clarkson, however, the best reward is a happy customer. Jordan stresses that the only way to craft top-of-the-line projects is by getting to know the customer’s desires and design preferences in detail.


“By not rushing the sales process, our clients get to explore unending possibilities,” Clarkson says. “Taking extra time to educate, offer suggestions and respond to clients’ wishes makes doing business with PBJC straightforward and easy.”


The craftsmen at PBJC believe that the construction process runs smoothest when one company manages the entire project from start to finish. Clarkson notes that if a family chooses to concentrate on extravagant features, the experts at PBJC can handle the request, as the company’s artisans are skilled in constructing multilevel pools, blending different decking materials and coordinating them with beautiful rock and faux rock treatments.


“Our company adheres to the highest level of craftsmanship,” Clarkson says. “We create poolscapes that meet — and often exceed — our clients’ expectations.”
