How did Arvidson Pools and Spas begin?

Arvidson Pools & Spas has been a family-owned and operated business since 1958. A staple of the greater Chicago area, Arvidson's began in 1924 with a 17-year-old named Bengt Arvidson, who traveled to America from Gammelstad, Sweden. He had not much more than a tool belt and the integrity to work hard and produce quality products.

 

He honed his building skills on the elaborate homes he built in Chicago. This continued for many years before the rolling hills of McHenry beckoned him, and he married a Swedish hometown girl, Laurine Johnson. In 1932, he continued working independently as a contractor and home builder. He did this for many years while raising his family.

 

When his customers wanted swimming pools with their new homes, he put his skills into action. He became the area's primary custom pool builder in the mid-50s.

 

Now well into our third generation of family ownership, Arvidson's tradition of personal integrity and quality service continues.

Why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
