Laurie Carter assumed responsibility for her family pool in elementary school at the age of 8 and has been in the business ever since. A Delaware Certified Pool Operator since 1990, Laurie left her position as the Chief of Environmental Education and Interpretation with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control within the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation to start her first company; Carter Pool Management (CPM) in 2002. 

Through CPM Laurie regularly oversaw residential and commercial pool renovations and actively collaborated with developers and homeowners on design, filtration, sanitation, building, and troubleshooting. When Laurie sold CPM in 2015 it was only natural her next venture would encapsulate not only Pool Renovations but Custom Pool Design & Building as well. 

Laurie's Certified Pool Operator status allows her to conduct pool inspections for home buyers and sellers. She maintains a vast and continuosly growing network of contacts within the pool, real estate, and construction industries. Laurie's mission with Carter Aquatics it to ensure our customers receive the best quality services for a manageable price. We want your pool to be something you and your family enjoy for the rest of your lives not just the next few years.
