I first got started in Above Ground Pools & Billiards Pool Tables
installations by working for a friend that was a pool installer.
He needed someone to help him out one summer and he introduce
me to pool installations. Learning to install pools was quick and
natural to me. This was probably the best reason why I decided to make
a career out of this trade.
I started my own company called Affordable Installations in 1999 and the first step was to win over pool store installation accounts. In 2001, I was fortunate to be put on a list of installers for Branch Brook Pool Company.
Branch Brook Pools was the biggest sellers of above ground pools in NJ. Durning the winter months they were also big seller of pool tables. I started installing Swim n Play swimming pools for them durning the summer months and American Heritage and other top brands of pool tables durning the winter months.
In 2005 they were acquired by Namco Pools and in a short period of time. They took one of the best pool company in New Jersey and ran it into the ground .Eventually in 2013 they filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Seeing the writing on the wall I moved on in 2007. By establish accounts with many other pool & pool table companies in North Jersey. This broadened my exposure to a host of different manufactures of swimming pools including Aqua Leader, Sharkline ,Ester Williams Aqua Sport Delair Group , all Wilbar International pools etc. and pool table brands including Brunswick, Olhausen, Spencer Marston, Imperial etc.
2016 I changed my business name from Affordable Installations to Richardpools LLC so that I can better adapt to changing retail landscape with the popularity and growth of the internet.
My hope is that this will make it easier for our current customers and are potential future customers to locate us and review us online.
April 2017 will mark our 17th season installing pools & pool tables in the New Jersey and New
York area. A lot has change from the time I began .I have become an expert in all phases of pool and pool table installation and service. I have installed thousands of pools and pool tables durning those years and dealt with all type of circumstances.
One of the best aspect of this job is that most people I meet and interact with are just like me. Hard working people trying to do the best for their family.
I hope we can bring more smiles and happy memories to each family we serve with worry free installations and services!
To all of our customers
