Imagine Pools and Waterscapes is your one-stop pool company

Imagine Pools and Waterscapes is a one-stop-shop, not only when it comes to creating your backyard oasis but also maintaining it. This Vernon-based, family-owned and operated company, has been serving Okanagan residents since 2004, with a goal of providing customers with years of worry-free enjoyment.

Imagine Pools is an A+ rated company with the Better Business Bureau and prides itself — not only on its service and value for money when it comes to building pools — but also in the relationships it creates with its clients. Many clients have been with Imagine Pools for years and depend on the team to keep their pools in optimum running condition.

“Those relationships are a source of pride for us,” says Ron Yavis, who owns and operates the company with his wife Katie. He says once a pool has been built, ongoing maintenance using proper environmentally-friendly products, is important. Imagine's ongoing service provides its customers with worry-free peace of mind so they can enjoy their pool and the pleasure it brings.

Yavis’ sons Jordan and Sawyer also work for the company as the onsite project managers. Side by side with their dad, they manage the crews that take a pool’s concept from a dream to a reality.

According to Yavis, who has nearly 40 years of experience in the business, demand for backyard pools in Vernon has risen dramatically in recent years, especially in the last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With more people spending more time at home, and the Okanagan weather conducive to spending more time outside enjoying the summer sunshine, the desire to have a pool has kept the company’s eight-person staff very busy. Imagine is currently booking pool construction projects into 2023.

In addition to custom design and construction of residential swimming pools, and the landscaping and renovations that form part of pool projects, the company also sells above-ground and vinyl inground pool kits, custom vinyl liners, Imagine Fibreglass pools, pool equipment, accessories, and chemicals. They’ll also renovate older pools and install spas and hot tubs. The versatile company also offers a do-it-yourself consultation program and will act as general contractor for backyard projects from conception to creation, as required.

As a Totally Hayward and BioGuard dealer, and a member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada, the company has won numerous local and national awards, and has been featured in national and international magazines such as Pool and Spa Marketing (Canadian), and Watershapes (California-based).

According to Yavis, Imagine Pools and Waterscapes makes quality control a priority, along with efficiency in production and completion of its projects. That gives clients a comfort level beyond the five-year workmanship warranty it already provides.

Imagine Pools works diligently at maintaining a reputation for integrity, quality workmanship, and approachable management. As a full-service pool company, Imagine can be available for repair services, chemicals and maintenance seven days a week on-site, April through November and by phone/text/email the rest of the year.

“That’s one of the biggest parts of our business — after-care service,” said Yavis.
