Where it all began…
The PoolTek Team
In 1986, Ed and Gail Kessler started Pooltek working out of their family home in Bethesda. Their goal was to create a pool service company that provided a higher quality of personal attention and technical knowledge, setting itself apart from the competitors and the common stereotypes associated with “Pool Guys.” As a former aeronautical engineer, Ed’s analytical style and attention to detail echoed throughout the small company, and soon more and more homeowners were trusting their multi-thousand dollar investments to Pooltek. Who could blame them, as it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to take care of a pool, but it sure makes you feel better to know one is.
In 1999, son Jeff Kessler graduated from Davidson College and took over operations of the company, expanding the company to its current Rockville location, and bringing in the concept of “One Company for All Your Needs” by taking on tile, coping, plaster, and deck projects as well.
Five years later, brother Kevin joined after completing his time at the University of Maryland, and helped to further grow the service department to our current fleet of twenty-four full service vehicles.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The pool looks brand new......it is 27 years old. They also put a dolphin and beach balls on the bottom (made out of tiles) to show where the pool depth changes. I use this company now to maintain the pool and keep it in good shape. They are very good at keeping problems from happening."
"Pooltek exceeded my expectations. We opted for a somewhat minimal service, but my pool was left sparkling and ready for winter. Even in October, they were booked out a bit (good sign), but we had them come as soon as possible.
They showed up and got right to work cleaning out the mess of old leaves we weren't able to get ourselves. The techs were professional and friendly and offered some advice on my options.
Their prices are very reasonable! Highly recommended!"
This summer [we] decided to put the maintenance of our pool in the hands of the pros, and we signed on for your weekly Tek service. It was a great decision! The tech team has helped us overcome an unusual set of water chemical challenges, and they have completely succeeded. After the team’s hard work, the pool water is now crystal clear and completely inviting.
We also asked your team to update our aging sand filter, and we have been thoroughly impressed – with their work and their cheerful competence.
I had quite a few pool companies come out for quotes and nobody was near as responsive (if at all) or their quotes were just outrageous. We definitely feel we made the right choice going with Pooltek…great customer service!
