Relax in a New Hot Tub

There are so many reasons to buy a hot tub!

RECONNECT: In this distraction-free zone, you’ll enjoy meaningful conversation and special moments with the people you care about most while relaxing in warm water.

REDUCE STRESS: When immersed in the warm water, you can disconnect, decompress and emerge renewed. For a few precious moments you can feel like all is right in the world.

COMMUNE WITH NATURE: Pause and appreciate…starry nights, golden sunrises, falling snow, changing leaves, and so much more. As a result, surrounded by nature, you can take in the beauty we often take for granted.

IMPROVE HEALTH: Most of all, hydrotherapy massage can help you be at your very best with increased mobility, a deeper and more peaceful night’s sleep, and better cardiovascular circulation.

An Above Ground Swimming Pool – Summer Vacation Will Never Be the Same

Thinking about an above ground swimming pool?  You’re not alone.

First, there are over four million above ground pools across America, and there has been a recent surge in above ground swimming pool ownership in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Second, above ground pools provide relief from summer heat, are easy to manage and maintain, and cost less to install and operate.  They also require less backyard space.

Finally, we offer Doughboy and Radiant Pools and can provide you with a variety of swimming pool shapes, sizes, liner colors and patterns, to choose from.

Bring the Heat Inside with a Finnleo Sauna

Do you have sore muscles?  Having trouble sleeping?  Looking for a way to release toxins from your body?

Consider installing a Finnleo sauna in your home gym or bathroom.

This ancient heat therapy (first recorded in 12th century Finland) loosens muscles, increases circulation, and helps the body release built-up dirt and toxins through the skin’s pores.

Psychology Today reports that sauna bathing may even be associated with a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s according to a study by researchers at the University of Eastern Finland and published in the December 2016 journal.

What others say about us

Philip S.

Arvidson Pools & Spas built a turn-key pool for us and we couldn’t be happier!  The cleaning system really works!

Philip S.Lakewood
Alison A.

The entire staff is excellent!  I love the free water testing they provide. Nadine and Autum have great knowledge with chemicals, which is critical for maintaining water balance.  We’ve found pool ownership to be quite simple with the in-floor cleaning system and automatic pool cover that were part of the pool design that Doug prepared. We couldn’t be happier!

Alison A.McHenry
Stephanie M.

Our pool from Arvidson’s has been the best thing for our family, and we are so happy we did it.  I truly appreciate Doug’s attentiveness to our needs and making my backyard oasis vision come true!

Thanks for hosting the pool closing school last night.  The burgers, snacks and cupcakes were an extra treat!  It is amazing to me how much I still do not know about pools after 15+ years!  Glad you people are always so helpful and knowledgeable.

Toby K.

I’d like to send a big thanks out to Nadine and Peter for getting a service worker out here to fix our pool last Saturday. I really appreciated how quickly they took care of it because I had a house full of people wanting to swim.

Our family trusts Arvidson to meet all of our pool needs. They are honest and responsive. We wouldn’t work with anyone else.
