A local Chicago land pool builder, and one of the nations top 50 pool builders, has been accused of illegally disposing of hazardous materials on their property in South Barrington, Illinois. You can read more of the story here or here.
Barrington Pools, Inc is a builder of in ground, concrete swimming pools and has projects throughout the greater Chicago land area, Wisconsin and Indiana. The construction of these types of pools requires a large amount of chemicals to be added to the water and poses a storage and disposal problem for companies dealing with hazardous or caustic materials.
Many companies who previously have build concrete pools have switched to fiberglass pool construction for this and many other reasons. Not only are less chemicals used in a fiberglass pool, but the construction time, maintenance and service costs are significantly less than with a concrete pool. If you have questions or concerns about the safety of pool chemicals please feel free to contact us or call 630.845.11545 for more information.
