Established in April of 2015 by Laurie Carter, Carter Aquatics has seen constant growth ever since.

We have completed high end renovation and new construction projects for residential and commercial pools, and aquatic recreational facilities throughout Southern and Central Delaware, and we are continuously seeking new opportunities to showcase our design and construction skills.

Pools are gathering places for families, friends, and neighbors. Whether you’re hosting a backyard summer barbecue or the annual community pool party, Carter Aquatics wants to help you bring your people together and ensure you’re getting the most out of your recreational aquatic experience.

Laurie Carter assumed responsibility for her family pool at the age of 8 and has been in the business ever since. A Delaware Certified Pool Operator since 1990 and certified in New Plaster Start-up Procedures (from the National Plaster Council) in 2020. 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 continuously growing network of contacts within the pool, real estate, and construction industries. Laurie's mission with Carter Aquatics is 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.
