About Affluent Pools

What’s in a name? After struggling to find a name that conveyed what we truly represent, Affluent Pools Design & Construction Inc. was created, and has evolved to what it is today. Simply put, our unique and custom commercial and residential designs has placed us in a unique market. Our projects are “value-engineered,” from design through final construction. As a premier pool contractor, no one should ever confuse our "Affluent Pools" with any other pool company.

Simply put, we feel we are the best at what we do.

History Of Affluent Pools

How did we come about in the first place? It's a long story, and involves the life stories of many people. We officially started in 2008, but our history and experience can be measured in decades. Our professional team has grown to include a licensed architect, a civil engineer, and a professional designer. Together, we've accumulated more than 61 years of design and construction experience. Our experts and crews can turn any construction drawing/concept into a finished “Affluent Pools”.  

Our President Paul McCraw Jr. is a veteran who has over eighteen years experience in mechanical, architectural design, and construction. Paul enlisted in the military after high school and spent eight years of active service, the last three years of that service being assigned to the State Department overseas as an Embassy Marine.

After completing his service, Paul worked for Rockwell International whom he credits for sending him back to college and introducing him to drafting and design. After six years with Rockwell, Paul was offered an opportunity in Hilton Head for arguably the best pool builder in the southeast. He was fortunate enough to work on award winning pools for both residential and commercial customers.
As Paul explains, “We would start several jobs a week, with any one of them capable of winning a design and/or quality award; that’s just a testament to a great team and quality company.” After departing the low country to be closer to family, he settled in the Upstate region of South Carolina. From his own personal experience with some local companies, he knew the potential for a quality pool builder in the area was great. And thus, Affluent Pools was created.
