The H
istory of Swim Things
- In 1973, Chuck Baldwin started Swim Things as a source for competitive swimwear. Chuck was a former coach for swim teams in the area and a manager for many commercial pools. Chuck saw the need for supplies for teams growing and decided to become a Speedo dealer. Other needs arose, such as renovating the commercial pools he was managing. Thus, he began renovating and repairing these pools. From this experience, Chuck gained a large amount of knowledge about building pools, which he started in 1979. Swim Things is now the largest pool builder in Kansas City. Swim Things not only builds pools, but also services many pools. In 1988, Swim Things added a 5,000 square foot retail store, which is how most people recognize Swim Things today.


Philosophy of Swim Things - Our goal is to provide a full service to each customer and to be able to help with all of their swimming pool needs. We expect to do that in a professional, punctual and accurate manner. Our goal is to work with you from design and building, to regular maintenance and repairs.
