In 1987, after catching their kids swimming in the irrigation ponds, Fred and Mary Walraven had a concrete pool installed in their backyard. This was the beginning of Matt’s love of pools and their operation. In 2001 Matt was hired by that same company in a warehouse position. In 2003 Matt met the love of his life Megan, and she was hired as a sales associate at the same company later that year.
By 2005 Matt was running his own service crew, having worked his way up the ladder. He learned how to build a pool from the ground up. From digging trenches, to tying rebar, plumbing lines, mixing marsite, setting forms, even shooting concrete. Matt learned the trade from the best in the business. He also learned how to service all aspects of pools and spas with yearly certifications, and recurrent testing. Including receiving multiple prestigious “Outstanding Service Awards” as well as being a finalist for Pleatco’s Perfect Pool Guy in 2008!
Megan moved from Sales Associate to Branch Store Manager to Assistant Manager very quickly. She was recognized not only in the company, but also in the industry as a hardworking and insightful individual. Many of her blogs have been published in trade magazines.
In 2008 Matt and Megan were married, and still managed to work together. Over the next 11 years, they worked their way up to the top. Matt, becoming the Service Manager, running the entire service department. Training multiple technicians the finer details of the pool industry. Megan working up to General Manager, running both locations, training all the summer staff, and keeping Matt and his crews in line.
By 2019, Matt and Megan have become widely recognized in the pool and spa industry. Realizing, they had much more to provide, they decided to start their own company. A “Concierge” Pool and Spa Service. Their Motto “You swim, we’ll do the rest!” truly defines their business model. At Walraven’s Pool Service, you’re not just a credit card number on the back of a work order. You’re our friends. You deserve a better pool experience, let’s dive in together!
