Company Profile

Platinum Pools specializes in all aspects of pool design, construction and renovation with added focus on specialty aquatic features such as waterfalls, lazy rivers, rock water applications, statuary and other luxury waterscape amenities. The company also provides installation and maintenance services for its customers.

Platinum Pools has raised the standards of excellence in residential and commercial pools, spa and waterscape design and construction. The company boasts a combined half-century of experience in building, servicing, maintaining, and renovating award-winning and nationally-recognized gunite pools throughout the Midwest.

Platinum Pools has repeatedly graced the cover of various industry magazines, has appeared on two nationally-aired television shows, and has earned hundreds of awards for its designs. The company belongs to the prestigious, invitation-only Aquatech Society for professional pool builders.

Platinum Poolcare, Ltd. believes in putting the exclamation point on every project it develops. Not content to simply recreate the same pool over and over, the skilled team of craftsmen led by principals Terry Smith and James Atlas uses its years of experience in pool design and construction to conceive and build imaginative backyard settings that are among the industry's best-which is why hundreds of the builder's projects have been honored with design awards. Not to rest on its laurels, however, Platinum Poolcare continues to take its business to the next level of excellence. Backyard spaces are evolving, and the top pool designers and builders are changing to meet the demand for more livable outdoor spaces. Smith and Atlas recognize this and have made it their mission to oversee a firm that uses the latest technology, methods, and materials to create top of-the-line pools and settings. "By constantly expanding our knowledge and skill, we are able to translate our clients' vision into reality," says Atlas. "We produce functional, harmonious, and horticulturally-correct outdoor living spaces."

Platinum Poolcare has a registered landscape architect on staff who takes a design and integrates the whole setting with the homeowner's tastes and existing architecture. Additionally, the builder handles all types of renovations and provides 24-hour maintenance and repair assistance. "We are proud of our work," explains Atlas. "Clients can view our projects on YouTube, Facebook, Houzz, Pinterest, and other social networking websites." Plus, Platinum Poolcare, Ltd., has appeared on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms and Destination America's Epic Pools; as well as coffee table books, and magazine articles, including in Luxury Pools.

Besides the large number of honors and awards, Platinum Poolcare, Ltd., holds membership in Aquatech, a by-invitation network of the nation's elite pool builders. Recently, the firm was inducted into an industry's prestigious hall of fame.
