This is a third generation company!

How experienced are we?

Dependable Swimming Pool Service was founded in 1969 by my dad, Floyd Kildew. At that time it was just an in-ground pool service company.

I, Charles (Sonny) Kildew, started to work for Dependable Swimming Pool Service until 1983, at which time I bought Dependable Swimming Pool Service and then incorporated.

In 1984, Dependable Swimming Pool Service, Inc., bought a building at 124 S. Rte. 83 in Grayslake, Illinois, and opened a retail store. Now we are a retail store and service company. We specialize in selling Doughboy above-ground pools, Royal spas, gazebos, saunas and swim spas, BioGuard and SpaGuard chemicals, and other pool and backyard related products. We also continue to service in-ground pools with openings, closings, weekly service, liner replacement, and repairs.

Our knowledgeable staff is qualified to handle all of your pool maintenance and product needs. Also, we offer special in-store repair of pumps, motors, and automatic pool cleaners, plus free Alex computerized water analysis. Our goal is to give excellent customer service and top quality merchandise. Stop by and visit our retail store in Graylake or call us at (847) 223-1606.

My son, Dan Kildew, has worked for Dependable Swimming Pool Service, Inc. since 1983. Dan now runs our service department.

In 1988, my daughter Cheryl Hemmelgarn  started working in the retail store. My wife, Bonnie Kildew, works in the store, where she does retail sales and office work.
