When we were growing up our Dad was building swimming pools in the 1960’s era, which meant we had a swimming pool at a couple different houses we lived in. As i recall they used to build pools from about $2K on up, pretty crazy prices compared to now. Being traditional parents, Ray Sr. and Anna had always known that some day their children would become entrepreneurs, who would have known it would be in the swimming pool industry. Through our younger years the training grounds of school, sports and work activities would teach us the important meaning of integrity. In 1978 Ray and Anna Alderete Sr., founders of 20th Century Pools, led their two sons Ray Jr. and Robert into the swimming pool industry an thus started 20th Century Pools. A few years later their youngest daughter Lorreta had entered the family business as well and now 26 years later their grandson Shea has entered the swimming pool industry with his Dad Ray Jr. (3rd generation builder).
