Our History:

As the "hands-on" technical leader of the company, Scott learned all aspects of swimming pool design, construction, maintenance and repair while working for another local pool company during his college years. By 1993, he had formed and was running that company's complete maintenance operation.

 

In 1994, Scott and his bride Heather chose to blend their talents and their futures and formed Denscot Pools. Initially working from their modest home, they now run operations from a beautiful idyllic 1853 farmhouse at 269 New Milford Turnpike, between Litchfield and New Milford Connecticut.

 

Scott obtained his APSP Certified Building Professional and Certified Service Technician certifications, and became licensed to perform all pool-related services in western Connecticut and eastern New York. As the company grew, he provided his employees with the same level of advanced training that he’d received.

 

Homeowners praise Scott and his supervisor Keith for their extensive depth of knowledge, and for their courtesy and patience when answering questions for homeowners. And Heather's team scores high praise for the tidiness of their retail store, and the helpfulness of their staff.
