Sparkle Pools was formed in 1988 by Raymond H. Glaeser, Jr. and was incorporated in 1994. Since 1988, Sparkle Pools has been serving Maryland and Delaware out of its Denton location, offering installation and maintenance of high-quality swimming pools and Marquis Spas. To better serve our customers, in 2011 Sparkle Pools added new locations in Dover, DE and Easton, MD. To continue our growth and expand our service area, a location in Chestertown, MD was added in 2013, and in 2014 the new Smyrna, DE location was opened.

The owner is actively involved in the daily operations, including face-to-face meetings with customers, being onsite when breaking ground, providing work estimates, making services calls, and approving finished projects. With its staff having over 300 years of combined experience, Sparkle Pools not only believes, but has proven, that customer satisfaction and building strong community relationships leads to continued success.
