About Our Pool Company
This pool company was founded by Michael G Kern (MGK). Mike worked full time for pool companies down on the Cape during his teens and into his early twenties. Then he went to ITT Tech to learn mechanics. All while Mike was going to school, then apprenticing, and during his 17 years as a master mechanic, he kept a hand in the pool trade.
After Mike hurt his back in 1995, he had to close his auto repair shop (Big Mikes Auto). He began selling off his tools online to make ends meet. When he ran out of tools to sell he began looking for other products. Mike’s Internet marketing career began, and he started learning the ins and outs of online advertising.
In 2008 Mike’s back was mostly healed, and while doing some online research to see what kind of demand there was for pool service, he found this was an under served market. Always the entrepreneur, Mike seen the opportunity and pounced on it, opening MGK Pool Service in the late summer of 2008.
Mike built a website and started running ads to get customers. The first year went better than expected. He found that many pool service companies were run by some pretty flaky people, and finding customer looking for better service pretty simple.
There was a learning curve as he got into pool repairs he had not performed before, like repairing filters and diagnosing bad pool pumps and motors. But his mechanical back ground made this learning curve a very short one. In fact the only challenge was finding a good source for parts. No matter the equipment, Mike found the systems held no challenge for him.
Mike made fast friends of local pool supply stores, buying all he needed just from them. He does not buy “much” (only what he has too) from the big supply companies like SCP, and Baystate. Mike sells and installs only quality products, while refusing to go through normal distribution channels. Buying direct he say’s enables him to provide the best products at reasonable prices.
Mike and his son Jack do the majority of the companies repairs, openings, closings, and maintenance work, while also installing most of the above ground pool liners and pool covers themselves. For services like in-ground pool liner replacement, and pool resurfacing, Mike has partnered with the best sub contractors in the area (some he used to work for). Mike contracts with only the best: deck, tile, coping, and plastering guys in the business, guys who don’t advertise and make their living working for him and other pool builders and restoration companies in the area.
MGK Pool Service has been a proud member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for the past two years, and has amassed lot of positive reviews, and the customer base is growing by thirty percent every year.
