“Soft openings began Monday, (July 20), through the week, but I think we’re going to do a grand opening the beginning part of August, if everything plays out where we can,” general manager Andrew Craig said.
However, he noted the customer service department has already been up and running since February.
Chase Decker and his twin brother, Shane Decker, own Tennessee Valley Pool and Spas, with Chase running the shop’s retail side of things with Craig and Shane managing the service department, About the business locating at The Concord, next to Gina’s Bernina Sewing Center and Smoothie King, Craig said, “I’m excited. Everyone’s been really nice.
“I’d like to say ‘thank you,’ he added about the community’s response. “We hadn’t even opened yet, and people were stopping by and welcoming us and being super friendly. We really appreciate it.
The business provides water testing, hot tub sales and pool service.
While they currently are selling the hot tubs in their shop, Craig said, “We would like to eventually get into the pool installs (and sales), but we’re going to wait on that for now.
“We’re hoping next year to start really hitting the pool installs and sales … because there’s a demand for that as well,” he added.
Tennessee Pool and Spas offers an experienced staff and training, Craig said, adding, “We do all the certifications, the yearly trainings.
“We really stay on top of the cutting-edge stuff, going above and beyond,” he added.
Lifetime friends, Craig and the Deckers were familiar with Farragut, as they would vacation at the Decker twins parents’ home along Fort Loudoun Lake in Loudon County for about 10 years.
