Meet Our Renovation Technician: Jim Batchelor

A Peek at the Staff Behind the Scenes

Over twenty years ago, Jim became part of our Pettis Pools & Patio family! He is one of our “fix-it” specialists—there just aren’t very many pool-related questions he hasn’t developed solutions for over the years. We consider his know-how to be invaluable to our company and customers.

Little known fact about Jim:

Years ago, I was a zookeeper in Texas. My favorite animal was a maned wolf which is beautiful, exotic, rare and tame. They come from South America and are often called a “fox on stilts.”

His favorite backyard summer fun:

I love hanging out and playing fetch with my dog Libby, a sheltie, who retrieves anything!

Favorite Hobby:

I have always enjoyed restoring things. It gives me a sense of accomplishment.

Favorite Way to Relax:

Listening to, and playing, music in pretty much any genre. I play the trumpet, piano, and drums.

Jim works hard to help customers keep their pools looking great and operating safely. He says, “My favorite part of my job is seeing people’s faces when they realize their pool looks like new again!”
