Ken Whitford

Ken Whitford founded Lifetime Pools in 1962 with the idea that the company would employ people who were motivated to devote their “lifetime” of work to the swimming pool industry. Because of that philosophy, we are now a company with very experienced employees.

This allows us to deliver the highest quality pool and spa construction and service.

Lifetime Pools has long been the most recommended builder of quality pools in the Bay Area and has received national recognition as the winner of 9 awards for swimming pool design excellence.

He moved into the office in 1980 as Construction Manager and was then promoted to Vice President of Construction.
