Pool Troopers, one of the nation’s fastest-growing pools service companies, acquired three pool service companies in April. Pure Planet Pools of St. Petersburg, Cobalt Pool Service of Ft. Myers, and Clearview Pool Services of Jax., located in Jacksonville. All three acquisitions provide residential and commercial pool service and repair.

“We feel that Pool Troopers is the best fit for our company moving forward. We share the same philosophy of caring for our employees and customers. We couldn’t have picked a more capable group to carry on the mission of providing excellent pool service. Our experience with them has been outstanding from start to finish. Their transition team is on point,” said Pure Planet Owners Mark and Jen Simmons regarding the sale.

“Selecting Pool Troopers as a partner for Cobalt was easy.  Their leadership in the pool industry in the Southwest Florida market is unmatched.  We are very excited about the quality of service and the benefits they will bring to our customers and our employees going forward.  The Pool Troopers integration team has been thorough and proactive to ensure a seamless transition for our technicians and customers,” says Cobalt Owner Jim Haidet.

“From our first conversation, I knew that Pool Troopers would be the right organization to take care of my employees and customers. Partnering with Pool Troopers allows me to focus on the next part of my life with full confidence the business I’ve built will continue to thrive,” says Clearview Pool Services Owner Eric Hyde.

“The April acquisitions bring three companies into the Pool Troopers family who mirror our core values and care for their customers and team members. Pure Planet Pools represents our entry into commercial pool service in our core market of Tampa Bay. Cobalt fits well into our continued growth strategy in Southwest Florida, and Clearview’s loyal customer base further expands our services in Jacksonville. We are raising the bar together, and I’m thrilled to begin our 2022 acquisitions with these great additions,” says Mark Patton, Pool Troopers CEO.

The April acquisitions are the 10 , 11, and 12, which Pool Troopers has secured since December 2020. With the support of Shoreline Equity Partners, Pool Troopers is on a mission to partner with pool service companies across the Sunbelt Region. Pool Troopers was founded in 1952 and services nearly 20,000 pools throughout Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Arizona.
