Swim Things started over 45 years ago, in 1973, as a company dedicated to serving local swim teams. Chuck Baldwin, founder of Swim Things, organized learn to swim programs and saw the value in teaching people to become strong swimmers. In 1979 Swim Things built their first inground swimming pool and since then has grown to become Kansas City's largest and most innovative swimming pool construction company. Their dedication to state-of-the-art swimming pool designs and unsurpassed customer service remain a top priority. At Swim Things, their experienced team is equipped to help from concept to completion and beyond. Their retail and online stores offer a wide variety of products to outfit an entire backyard.
