Charles D. Miller dreamed of putting a pool in his backyard for years. In the late 50s, while he was working as a union industrial insulator for E.I. Dupont at Washington Works in Parksburg, West Virginia, Dupont was building their Teflon division, which included a series of outdoor water and chemical storage ponds.
These concrete ponds were lined with fiberglass, which Charles was tasked with installing. Charles had not had a job like this before; However, he and his insulation crew were able to come up with the means and methods to get the job done.
After completing this task, Charles realized that he could use his new experience to build a pool for himself. In the spring of 1960, Charles finally saved up enough money to begin construction on his dream. He hired some local help to work alongside him, and together, armed with shovels, wheelbarrows, and Charles’s spirit of ingenuity and powerful work ethic; he began building his first pool.
Rock Miller, Charles’ youngest son, begin to share the same passion for pool building as his father at a young age. At the age of 16, Rock joined his father on the job and began to learn the pool building trade. Since then, Rock has been hands-on with every aspect of pool construction; from operating equipment for digging pools and building form work with reinforcing steel to troweling on the plaster and setting tile, Rock has done it all. He eventually went out on his own and has owned pool business in either West Virginia or in Florida since 1979.
Pool Crafters maintains the same spirit of ingenuity that Charles Miller possessed when he founded Miller Pools. At Pool Crafters, it is part of our philosophy to maintain that ingenuity by offering the best equipment and most current technology available on the market to our customers.
