MARTINSBURG -For many families, few memories are more cherished than the long, hot summer days spent lounging
poolside while children and friends alike take joy in the relaxing waters located right in the backyard.
It's no secret that one of the things Cindy and Mike Manor, owners of A&A Pools & Supplies Inc., enjoy the most about
running their own pool installation and supply center is the families they've come to know over the past 21 years, since
the family-owned business first opened its doors.
"What's really cool is because we've been here for 21 years, we actually get to watch the children grow up," said Cindy
Manor, her smile brimming while talking about the business. "We're friendly, we take care of customers and we're really
loyal to them. We bend over backward to make sure they have everything they need."
Located at 45 Monroe St. in Martinsburg, the business offers installation services for above-ground and in-ground
pools, as well as the full array of supplies, chemicals, maintenance service and other amenities needed to ensure both
current pool owners and potential pool seekers are able to enjoy the most out of their pools.
It's open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well as 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
The business, open year-round, also installs and provides services for hot tubs, jacuzzis and even wood pellet stoves.
"Hot tubs, pools, wood pellets - we do it all," Mike Manor said.
Of course, the Manors couldn't have gotten where they are today had it not been for their dedication to quality
customer service and the appreciation of their longtime loyal customers.
Since 2002, the local pool business has been voted the best pool company in the tri-state area.
"You don't just put a pool in and leave them. You've got to take care them," Cindy Manor said. "Our customer service is
No. 1. I think that's why we've been voted since 2002 as the best pool company here in the tri-state area. We certainly
enjoy what we do."
The attention to detail starts the moment a customer decides to have a pool installed.
"As far as in-ground pools, we do a backyard survey, we do the filtration, we mark everything out, we do all the permits,
all the electrical - everything is done in house," Mike Manor said.
About the only thing the Manors don't do is physically pour the concrete themselves. The same attention is given to
above-ground pools, with A&A Pools & Supplies averaging an installation rate of about two pools per day.
Customers even have the choice between vinyl and fiberglass models.
Above-ground pools typically range between $5,000 and $10,000, while in-ground pools can cost anywhere from
$18,000 to $50,000 depending on the type and scope of the project.
The Manors also offer installation services for commercial properties, not just private ones."We go to the limit to make
sure that everything is done adequately and promptly. That's just the way we like running our business," Mike Manor
Anyone who has ever owned a pool knows full well, however, that caring for it is no easy task. Whether it be making
sure Ph levels are correct, the right chemicals are used or the filter is functioning properly, caring for a pool can
sometimes feel like a full-time job. Thankfully, A&A Pools & Supplies, which employs four certified pool operators in
addition to its regular staff, is there to make sure that pool ownership is as hassle free as possible.
The business offers a full range of assistance, from seasonal opening and closing services to weekly maintenance and
cleaning services. That's in addition to a full line of products available in house, including pool chemicals, vinyl, water
toys, skimmers, parts, water toys and more. Customers also are rewarded with fun passes, which are end-of-the-year
bonus points that customers can use at A&A Pools & Supplies.
"We have all the service items you need to care for and maintain your pool," Mike Manor said.

"We love it. We love pools," Cindy Manor said. "We decided to open a store 21 years ago and it's been a great success
