Deer Park NY – Ultimate In Pool Care, Inc. partners Kyle Chaikin and Ed Cohen have announced acquisition of Spring & Summer Activities, a full-service pool company based in Hampton Bays, NY. According to Cohen, “We have worked extensively with Spring & Summer Activities over the past several years, and putting the businesses together is a natural extension of that relationship.”

The combined divisions now fall under the umbrella of The Chaikin Ultimate Group, offering a complete array of swimming pool services covering all of Long Island and beyond, including residential and commercial swimming pool construction, expert repair, maintenance and leak detection, and a commercial aquatics facility management division. They have earned numerous awards for excellence in pool construction, design and service, and is the only company in the nation where both owners have attained the distinction of PHTA Fellow, the highest national award in the pool industry, awarded in recognition of outstanding service to the pool and spa industry.

Spring & Summer Activities has been in operation for almost 40 years, and former owner Sheryl Heather is a recognized pool industry leader as well. She was recently honored with the 2021 Northeast Pool & Spa Association’s Paulette Pitrak “Above and Beyond” award for her dedicated volunteer efforts.

“The staff and I are thrilled with this new opportunity and looking forward to working with the Chaikin Ultimate team for many years to come,” stated Heather. “We share the same corporate philosophy for putting our customers first, ensuring that our employees are educated and professional, and giving back to the community and to our industry. This affiliation offers us an opportunity for unlimited growth as we are able to offer a much wider array of services to clients on the East End.”
