Who we are…

In 2011, two of the most respected swimming pool companies on Long Island merged to form Ultimate Pools, LLC.  Formerly The Ultimate In Pool Care and Chaikin Pools, the two are now one, fulfilling the dreams of Ed Cohen, Kyle Chaikin, and Terry Hyams, consolidating the best talent in swimming pool service and residential and commercial swimming pool construction.

With this merger, Ultimate In Pool Care’s new Service Division brings together trained technicians with over 30 years of experience servicing commercial and residential swimming pools on Long Island.

Ed Cohen, President of Ultimate Pools, LLC, has spent countless hours developing and teaching training programs for the swimming pool technician. He is a Past President of The Long Island Pool and Spa Association (LIPSA, the Long Island chapter of The Northeast Pool and Spa Association) and is an active board member for both LIPSA and The Northeast Pool and Spa Association (NESPA). Ed is certified by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) as both a Certified Building Professional (CBP) and as a Certified Service Professional (CSP), the highest designations one can achieve in the swimming pool industry. Last but not least, Ed is also recognized nationally by his peers as an expert in leak detection and repair.

On the construction side of things, the new Chaikin Ultimate Pools Construction DBA similarly brings together 30+ years of experience renovating and building commercial and residential swimming pools on Long Island and in NYC.

Kyle Chaikin, President, Chaikin Ultimate Pools, has held the positions of NESPA’s Treasurer, Vice President and President in past years. Kyle currently sits on the APSP’s Builders Council, and serves as the Chairman of LIPSA’s Kidswim Program.

Meanwhile, Terry Hyams is widely regarded as one of the best swimming pool and spa technicians in the industry, and certainly an invaluable asset to the whole group.

Ultimate In Pool Care and Chaikin Ultimate Pools remain the most established and recognized pool building and service company on Long Island, a distinction not easily earned. Indeed, together, they are regarded as one of the most respected commercial and residential service company and builders of swimming pools in the industry.

While the pools we build and service are all different, they all share one thing in common: a successful response to customer’s needs and challenging requirements.

It has been and will be an honor to serve you…
