After working as an apprentice under his uncle for four years in Massachusetts, C.J. Del Vaglio decided to open his own pool business. Seeing that there was an established business on the East End, he traveled to Long Island and took on the challenge of being a business owner, purchasing East End Pool King in 2006.

Mr. Del Vaglio said he’s found that owning his own business has made him think of the old adage about “treating people how you would like to be treated. Honesty and genuine care are the best policies.” Pool King’s slogan is simple: “Your Pool, Our Pride.”

“We care about our service and value our customers, considering them friends,” he said.

Mr. Del Vaglio is an Association of Pool and Spa Professionals-certified service professional and a National Swimming Pool Foundation-certified pool operator and inspector.

East End Pool King services include Gunite or vinyl pool installation, renovation, weekly maintenance, leak detection, saltwater chlorination, liner replacement and eco-friendly options. The pool and spa store offers chemicals, water toys, parts, filters, pumps and accessories.

East End Pool King is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m.-noon. Visit them online any time at eastendpoolking.com.
