UltraSeam - The strongest seams you'll NEVER see!

Latham innovation has produced an entirely new category of vinyl liner. Our exclusive Ultra-Seam™ process makes floor seams stronger and virtually invisible. No more visible lines on the pool floor detracting from the beauty of your customer's pool!

Ultra-Rigid Polymer Panels

Reduces potential warping and bowing
Latham innovation has significantly improved the polymer wall panel. Our exclusive Graphex and Elite polymer composite panels and ultra-rigid Deluxe panels reduce the problem of thermal expansion experienced by traditional panels. The new polymer panels remain rigid even on the hottest day, creating an easier installation for the builder.

Coverstar - Automatic Safety Cover WiFi Touch Pad

Alerts the homeowner via text or email when the cover is used
Latham innovation brings a new level of peace of mind with the first WiFi-enabled touch pad for automatic safety covers. The new Coverstar WiFi Touch Pad can alert the homeowner by text or email when the cover is opened or closed, when any user logs in, or if the cover is left open for longer than a time set by the homeowner. It also includes intelligent sensing to shut off the system when operational problems are detected, programmable security codes and Press for Service button. The new Touch Pad can be easily installed into existing cover systems to provide a powerful new level of protection for families.

"Our working experience with Swim-N-Pools was very positive. Not only did we have a new pool put in, but an old one taken out. They replaced our old rectangle with a new kidney and a spillover spa. Swim-N-Pools handled the project from start to finish…we would highly recommend Swim-N-Pools to anyone, their workmanship was extremely professional."

"While considering getting a pool, our friends and family recommended us to choose The Pool Company! After meeting with Hans, we felt comfortable, knowing that this was definitely the right choice! from the start The Pool Company guided and helped us make the right decisions to get our pool we always dreamed of. During the building process, the staff became family. it was an exciting process for our family to watch the progress each day with the help of Steve, being very thorough in explaining each and every detail. Much respect was given to our property and neighbors by The Pool Company. After having the pool for a year, we are still able to call The Pool Company with any questions and concerns. They are truly a great local company that stands behind their work 100%."

"Our pool has been completed now for several weeks and we just love it!...Having lived in six states and having dealt with hundreds of contractors over the years, your company and the representatives for your company should be commended. You are truly one of the best contractors of any kind that we have ever dealt with. From the very beginning when we contacted your company and you made the first sales call to our home, we have been very impressed. BY Pools was timely, clear and efficient and did an amazing job with each phase of the pool installation. The quality of the Fort Wayne product itself is very impressive. I see why you represent their company. Thank you once again for delivering the pool of our dreams."

"When my family built our new house, we decided to do a swimming pool. I talked to many pool dealers in our area, but Mr. Waddell was my choice because he was the easiest to talk to and made suggestions and gave advice that I needed and could understand. I also checked out other pools that he had done and everyone was pleased with his construction. Mrs. Waddell and Gail, who run the retail store, have the knowledge to help me understand my pool after construction. It has been a great relationship."

Initially, growth was through the expansion of the retail pool business and Pacific Pools became one of the largest pool builders in the country with locations in Syracuse, NY, Hartford, CT, Providence, RI, Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA.

During the 1960's, Pacific Pools entered the manufacturing side of the business to develop new products to best meet the needs of consumers.

The business was sold to Cookson Group PLC in 1989. In 1995, Pacific Pools acquired Technican Industries in Brantford, Ontario. The company was reacquired by Mark Laven in 2001 along with a private equity group.

Since that time under Mark Laven's leadership, the company has strengthened its industry leadership position throughout North America by acquiring Triac Pool Products, with locations in the U.S. and Canada, in 2002; Kafko Manufacturing (U.S. and Canada) and Nikko Industries (Canada) in 2003; Fort Wayne Pools (U.S.) and RP Industries (Canada) in 2004; Viking Pools (fiberglass) in 2005; and Coverstar, LLC (automatic pool covers) in 2006. In 2010, Viking Pools acquired Blue Hawaiian Pools (fiberglass) and Trilogy Pools (fiberglass); in 2012 Viking acquired Royal Fiberglass Pools, Inc.

As the company flourished, the Latham family of brands has become recognized throughout the world as the largest manufacturer of swimming pool components and pool accessories. Its broad product line now includes in-ground and above ground vinyl liners, polymer and steel pool wall systems, fiberglass pools, steps, ladders, pool safety covers and autocovers, spillover spas and a variety of other pool related products.

Latham currently operates 23 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 2015, Latham Pool Products became a portfolio company of Wynnchurch Capital, Ltd.
