About Aquatics Empowered

The vision for Aquatics Empowered started 19 years ago, my company had been contacted by a small town.  They needed a city pool and were exhausted on options.  The last bid coming in on their project was about 1 and half million.   I said “we don’t build city pools! But we would love the opportunity to try! They said we were their last option.   It was exciting to figure out a solution, when all was said and done we designed a pool, a small water park with a pool house and the entire project was under 600,000 compared to the million and a half.  We figured out at that point we could help any community and meet any budget.
