About

With thirty five years’ experience helping Fairfield County homeowners enjoy their pools and spas, Walt and Nancy Gerken founded Rainbow Pools & Spa with one goal in mind: Provide Fairfield County with a trusted resource for getting the best value… and most fun… from their pools and spas. The areas hard water is hard on equipment and many factors like leaves and runoff can affect water quality and alkalinity. Further some industry trends have been reducing the effectiveness of commonly available chemicals and reducing the lifetime of pumps and cleaners.

Wondering about your water quality? At Rainbow Pools & Spa, you can bring a water sample in for a free computer analysis. Unfortunately, Rainbow Pools has seen a trend where local pool and spa operators are being bought up by chains who have replaced name brand chemicals with generic chemicals produced overseas to clear a larger profit. If they were chemically identical, this wouldn’t be a problem. Unfortunately, lower quality chemicals translates to lower quality water. That means you end up buying more to do less.

Rainbow Pools & Spa is an authorized EZ Chlor dealer. What does this mean? EZ Chlor was one of the first companies to refine computerized pool water analysis and now has the most accurate water testing in the pool and spa industry. This helps Rainbow Pool & Spa personalize your pool and spa maintenance. Using EZ Chlor 3-step care system, you can keep your pool and spa water sparkling clear with a simple once-per-week program. Chlorine sensitive? Ask about effective chlorine alternatives.

Besides taking better care of your water, Rainbow Pools & Spa also wants to help you take better care of your equipment, like pumps, heaters and cleaners. Generic replacement parts don’t always fit or wear as well as the original equipment from the manufacturers. In the over three decades of repair and replacement, we’ve seen it all. Bad parts can lead to inefficient performance, and even equipment failure. As authorized dealers for all major manufacturers, your team at Rainbow Pools & Spa knows which parts to recommend in which situation to prolong the life of your pool and spa equipment.

In Fairfield County the hot summers and hard water are hard enough on our equipment. We’d be delighted to talk to you about your pool or spa needs, and appreciate the chance to earn your business. We also carry all manner of accessories and cleaning supplies.

At the end of the day, we’ve been successful by establishing long-term relationships with our clients. That means providing high quality service and products day-in-and-day-out to keep you coming back season after season.
