Pettis Pools & Patio – Making friends since 1962

Celebrating 54 years in Business

It all began in 1962 when Erma & Larry Pettis, who were both teachers at the time, were looking through the business classifieds for an opportunity to supplement their income during the summer – perhaps a hardware store they thought. Then they saw the ad that would change their lives; Fox Inground Pool Dealership Available! In 1962 inground swimming pools were considered only for the rich & famous and here Erma & Larry were in rural Hilton, NY…but call they did! And that began the business that, to date, has spanned 54 years, two retail store locations, over 70 employees, hundreds of beautiful pool installations and most importantly, five decades of making friends. The Pettis Family is grateful
