About Us


It’s our 50th Anniversary!

We have grown up with you, watched your families grow and have had the honor of serving your family and your pool for five decades. So, thank you to all of you, our amazing customers, for bringing us 50 great years of business.

Schech’s Pool Spa Patio is Putnam County’s oldest pool store. We were founded in 1969 by builder Herb Schech when he started installing pools for his clients. Now, 5 decades later, his daughter Barbara Schech Freer owns the business. She has transformed the company from building pools into helping customers create a beautiful and healthy outdoor lifestyle. We have retail experts and pool service technicians ready to maintain and expand your backyard retreat. We no longer install pools, but we are here for all your pool maintenance and patio needs!

We offer a full line of BioGuard pool and spa chemicals, Dimension One Spas, Hayward pool equipment, Maytronics Dolphin robotic pool cleaners, a wide variety of pool toys and games, CR Plastics Adirondack chairs and patio furniture, Meyco Safety covers and so much more!

Our services include: Pool openings and closings, weekly pool maintenance, hot tub valet service, salt pool equipment installation, small pool repairs, and pool equipment installation (pumps, filters, heaters). Call us for all other repairs and our Service manager would be happy to discuss it with you.
