About Us

Learn more about how we became Vermont’s oldest and largest Pool & Spa Dealer!

Founded

January 1, 1957

Allen Pools & Spas was founded in 1957 by Dan Allen Sr. who was working for the State of Vermont as a Registered Civil Engineer.  He was contacted about designing and building a swimming pool for the Girl Scout Camp at Tammarck Notch in Mendon, VT.  He agreed and built his first pool.  He was then contacted by a few more people that had purchased pool kits and hired him to install them.  Realizing the potential for a thriving business, he started selling and installing in-ground pools all over Rutland and Windsor counties.  Even after building thousands of swimming pools, Dan Allen Sr. never learned to swim a stroke.

First Retail Store

First Retail Store

In 1958 we opened our first retail store on Woodstock Avenue in Rutland, VT.  Dan Allen Sr. built in-ground swimming pools and tennis courts in the summer and sold peanuts and cashews to local bars in the winter.  Two years later we moved to a temporary location in Center Rutland while construction of our new retail facility was underway–our existing Rutland store.  Our chemical business began, bottling our own swimming pool shock into one gallon containers.
