Resume of Michael J. Bowers


So the saying goes. Every pool builder you talk to will say they are the best and for varying reasons. At Pool Pros we don't like to brag but we feel that there is no one out there more passionate about swimming pools than we are.  That passion is reflected in Pool Pros investment to obtain the highest level of industry certified educational opportunities to bring the highest level of craftsmanship to its clients and the industry. Below you will find the resume of the owner of Pool Pros (Mike Bowers) along with Pool Pros resume of Pool Industry Certifications, Awards and Commitment to our clients.

Michael has also been featured numerous times by Aqua Magazine, an industry trade publication, and currently holds a seat on the Board of Directors of PHTA, Midwest Chapter.



Pool Pros commitment to quality craftsmanship is evident through the number of satisfied clients across Wisconsin and the consistent recognition of our efforts throughout the industry through the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance Gold Standard of Excellence Awards. Pool Pros has consistently received this award since we first entered back in the early 2000's.  The reason for our success is not because we build only high-end pools but because we attack each project with the same intensity regardless of what our client is spending. Our quality, commitment and passion is the same across the board. You simply can't fake quality. When Quality Counts, Count on Pool Pros.


In the real world, experience matters. Especially when you are dealing with an investment the likes of an in-ground pool. Mike Bowers the owner of Pool Pros has been personally building pools since 1997 and he can't get enough of it. Combine that will the years of experience from the rest of the Pool Pros crew and you have 45-plus years of combined pool-building experience. Pool Pros has done it all, seen it all and been around long enough to know how to address any issue that may arise on the job site. There is no substitute for experience.


For Pool Pros, building pools is not just a seasonal business. We are working round the clock all year long to not only build pools in summer but to hone our craft all winter. We study, we research, we train, and we grind all year to bring our clients the best. There is no offseason @ Pool Pros. Building a pool is not just a revenue stream for us. It's not a side project, it's not a part-time job. We are not just getting in the business because demand has been high. We've been here when things were bad and when things were good. We have been through it all and are here to stay. This is our life, this is who we are. So if you are looking for a pool builder who is passionate, dedicated, committed, and has the experience and reputation to make your pool project smooth and effortless Pool Pros is the Pool Contractor for you.




Excellent question and the answer is that it indicates the drive and desire to learn everything we can to provide our clients with the best knowledge and the highest level of craftsmanship possible for their pool project. These certifications come with a price though and unfortunately, most of our competitors do not have the commitment, drive, passion, or resources to invest what it takes to obtain these critical certifications.  Does your pool builder have these qualifications, if not maybe it's time to rethink your choice and give Pool Pros a try. When Quality Counts, Count on Pool Pros.

A great way to do that is show instances where our projects have met and surpassed a rigorous judging process by top industry professionals.  These awards are earned and not easy to achieve. So please take a look at the consistency in which Pool Pros has recieved these awards. There are very few other pool companies  that have this kind of resume.
