About Us
Who We Are

Our Mission

Is to fix pool problems (and problem pools) correctly, quickly, and permanently. We also want to help clear the confusion around swimming pools/spas through education and by being a credible and thorough source of pool expertise and knowledge.

Our Values

•Education and training are fundamental – it’s how we know what to do
•It is important to us that we stand behind our work
•It’s because we take pride in our work that we can stand behind it
•To reduce waste (energy, chemicals, equipment, water) is simply a good thing to do
•To be happy and helpful

Our Solution

Do the work the right way and stand behind it. But the REAL KEY to fixing pool problems or problem pools is proper diagnosis. It sounds old fashioned (but it's still as true as ever) an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Meet Our Crew

Craig Swegle
Craig Swegle Co-Owner and President
Craig he has been the co-owner/operator of Pool Doctor since 2005. A University of Iowa graduate (BA Communication Studies) and Association of Pool and Spa Professionals ͞Certified Service Pro͟ (APSP’s highest certification), Craig is an avowed ͞egghead͟ who actually likes the chemistry/math/electrical knowledge that it takes to really understand pools and spas. Also a top National Swimming Pool Foundation Instructor (CPO) Craig has taught thousands of students in Colorado over the years and loves to teach and train people how to make swimming safer and healthier. Being born and raised in Iowa, working smart, working hard, and doing things right is just how you are brought up, it’s just who you are. It is important to Craig that Pool Doctor reflects this ethos. The only thing that is more important to Craig than Pool Doctor and taking care of customers is his family. Craig has been living in Colorado for over 20 years and received his ͞Green Card͟ by marrying a native from Monument, CO. Craig and Heather happily spend much of their time raising an awesome little girl and 2 very cool dogs. Throw in some tennis when he gets a chance and that is the recipe of a very happy Colorado life.
Scott Foot

Scott is a Denver area native as well, growing up (and still living) in the Lakewood area.

Scott is CPO certified and has been with Pool Doctor for over 5 years and is now our Service Manager. Scott is a family man. Sporting 4 kids (toddler to high school grad), a cat, and now a puppy it’s a good thing Scott doesn’t need much sleep.
