Hidden Gems: Meet Edward Edgerton of Edge Pools

Today we’d like to introduce you to Edward Edgerton. 

Hi Edward, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
One of my best friends that I rode BMX with got me a job building swimming pools and I loved it the day I started, I got the opportunity to work for my boss’s father servicing and repairing pools and decided that that is what I wanted to continue. So, I got my contractor’s license and started Edge Pools! 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s definitely challenging at times; I couldn’t do it by myself. My wife and I have always work great together, I love being out in the field and she is really great at running the business side! Every day has been a challenge, it just gets easier the more you learn! 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Edge Pools is a full-service pool maintenance and repair company. We offer weekly and biweekly service for maintaining pools, equipment repair/replacement, new equipment installation, tile, and coping repair. 

Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
The biggest thing that helped me was listening to podcasts, there is so much information out there about anything! I listened to business podcasts as well as pool-specific podcasts. I was very lucky to have worked for 2 of the best pool companies (in my opinion) and learned so much, building pools from the ground up to properly maintaining pools and repairing them.
