TESTIMONIALS

"Delicious, fresh, light, bubbly, sparkling, clean – and refreshing. These words could be a joyful description of a particularly excellent glass of champagne or perhaps a fabulous drink made with champagne – but no – this is describing the experience we had swimming in SRK’s custom treated water in their “showroom” pool. We were hooked!"
PAUL S. ALTER, AIA, PRINCIPAL, LEE H. SKOLNICK ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN PARTNERSHIP  |  APRIL 1, 2021

We did a lot of research on pool companies on the East End as part of a major renovation and restoration of our family’s home in Sag Harbor. We had never had a house with a pool before, but did not relish the idea of floating around in a chlorine-based environment. We were hoping to avoid that classic chemical smell, sting in our eyes, and drying effect on our skin that we had come to associate with standard chlorine and saltwater pools, and we were eager to learn about other options. I like to work with people who are passionate about what they do – and Steve is a bit of a fanatic about water chemistry, having created his own ozone-based custom water filtration system.

Delicious, fresh, light, bubbly, sparkling, clean – and refreshing. These words could be a joyful description of a particularly excellent glass of champagne or perhaps a fabulous drink made with champagne – but no – this is describing the experience we had swimming in SRK’s custom treated water in their “showroom” pool. We were hooked! We spent a rather fun month or so designing the pool, picking colors for the finish, and stone for the coping. The SRK team took my sketches and did all the engineering. They handled everything from excavation to formwork, all the hidden piping, the detailing and layout for the equipment room, and coordination of the shooting and contouring of the gunite shell. The process went incredibly well. It is difficult to express the depth of pleasure that our SRK ozone pool has brought to our family and friends without sounding evangelical – but really – it continues to be a life changing and joyful marvel that exceeds our expectations on a regular basis.

"Steve and his team transitioned the East Hampton pool from a typical saltwater pool, that would leave swimmers a bit itchy and red-eyed, to a marvelous SRK custom pool that had everyone feeling like they were swimming in Evian!"
DIRECTOR OF FACILITIES, PRIVATE FAMILY  |  MARCH 30, 2021
I am the director of facilities for a family with properties in East Hampton and NYC. It has been a pleasure working with Steve Kenny of SRK Pools over the past year and a half. He transitioned the East Hampton pool from a typical saltwater pool, that would leave swimmers a bit itchy and red-eyed, to a marvelous SRK custom pool that had everyone feeling like they were swimming in Evian! With the transition, he also transformed the back of our messy pool house into a well-organized mechanical room and updated the controls for easy use through an application. Maintenance has been easy and smooth, with Steve always being very responsive, meeting our needs 100%. We have complete faith in Steve and his company, therefore fully recommend him to anyone thinking of using him to take their pool to the next level!
“Trust me when I say you will know an SRK pool the moment you look at the water - if you think all pool water is the same, you will be shocked at how different it can actually be!”

I am very pleased to submit this letter of recommendation for SRK Pool Services, Inc. I believe they can become a valuable member of your project team. I have had the privilege of working on several projects with Steve Kenny and his team, both domestically and internationally. We brought SRK on to our team to assist with a failing oceanfront pool and spa system in the Caribbean, which had been suffering through years of subpar construction contractors, chemically-aggressive water, and poor maintenance practices. They were able to quickly diagnose the problem, propose a solution, and put the plan into action to the delight of our client.

Using their proven HydroZone 3 system utilizing Ozone, Ultraviolet Light, and Advanced Oxidation they were. able to create amazing water while greatly reducing the required amount of chlorine. Trust me when I say you will know an SRK pool the moment you look at the water – if you think all pool water is the same, you will be shocked at how different it can actually be! As a consultant for a high-end clientele, I need to remain very detail-oriented and particular. Steve and his team are cut from the same cloth, and offer both a high level of project scrutiny as well as discretion for those wishing to maintain privacy. They will also bend over backwards to deliver the very best service available. Their knowledge base is second to none, and they routinely interface with other high-end tradespeople to ensure cutting-edge, technologically superior, systems-integrated installations. I recommend SRK without hesitation. Please contact me if you have any further questions or require additional information regarding SRK Pools.

“Before we hired Steve, we had a lot of problems maintaining the water clarity and quality that is necessary to provide a great water experience for our members and students and Olympic athletes.”
MARCUS FARN, CEO, ASPHALT GREEN  |  APRIL 15, 2019

Steve Kenny loves water. That is probably an understatement for a person that has committed so much time and energy to deeply understand how water works and reacts in different environments. Before we hired Steve, we had a lot of problems maintaining the water clarity and quality that is necessary to provide a great water experience for our members and students and Olympic athletes. The Asphalt Green pool is the only indoor Olympic-size swimming pool in Manhattan and it has served 9.1 million New Yorkers over the last 24 years, including Lia Neal, a Brooklyn native who became the first African-American female swimmer to medal at two Olympics.

Steve came in and quickly identified key issues. Once we addressed these issues, the water quality improved dramatically. With up to 5 pool configuration changes a day and drastically changing bather loads, we had to fundamentally change the way we thought about pool management and water treatment. Steve trained our entire engineering staff from the ground up and demonstrated how to anticipate the demands on the water and how to prepare the water rather than being reactive. He did this with great passion and has a true 360-degree understanding of all aspects of pool and water management. As of now our members are much happier and are enjoying crystal clear water that is safe at much lower chlorine levels. Thank you Steve!
