How It All Started

Pools by the Sea was founded in 2004 by Paulette Hester. With years of pool cleaning experience behind her, Paulette decided it was time to branch out on her own. It didn’t take long for her to develop a solid base of customers.

Pools by the Sea began as a family owned and operated company, and still is today. Almost all of Paulette’s daughters have been trained in the family business of cleaning pools, except for one, who gladly tends to all of the office needs of the business.

We are licensed, insured, and CPO (Certified Pool/Spa Operator) Certified. Pools by the Sea is a member of the IPSSA (Independent Pool and Spa Service Association) organization and participates in continuing education every two years.
