Our History

Poolwerx has a long and proud history in the US and abroad.

Founded in Australia in 1992, our business and brand quickly grew to become the largest pool and hot tub / spa maintenance network in Australia and New Zealand, winning numerous awards and accolades along the way.


In March 2015, more than 20 years after first opening our doors “down under,” Poolwerx opened its doors in Arizona. This marked the official beginning of our presence in the US and we’ve been growing ever since!

From our modest Arizona debut with 25 stores, service centers and service trucks, Poolwerx has expanded rapidly. These thriving franchises are supported by our strong corporate staff operating out of the Poolwerx national support office in Dallas, Texas.

Having enjoyed well over 500% growth in our new home in less than three years, we continue to be thrilled by the consistently positive feedback from our clients and the ongoing success and growth shared by our Franchise Partners. The Poolwerx name has become a recognized and trusted partner for pool and hot tub / spa owners in every state where we operate. This is a reputation we continue to invest in with our commitment to excellence, service and all our people.

We’re proud to help owners like you keep your pool and hot tub / spa healthy and clean so that you can spend more time enjoying them with the ones you love.
