SPMS was founded in 1983 by Ross Seymour, a former Australian Olympic swimmer. Ross initially did not have plans to follow his father’s footsteps into the pool business. However after moving to the United States in 1972 on a swimming scholarship and representing his native Australia in the 1976 Olympics, Ross became a professor and head swimming coach at George Williams College in Downers Grove, Illinois.

Shortly thereafter, Ross capitalized on his passion for aquatics and founded SPMS to manage and repair pools throughout the Chicagoland area. After years of continued success, Ross expanded his portfolio of businesses to include Pool Guards, Inc., a turn-key solution to lifeguard-staffing and pool management, and the Du Page Swimming Center, a facility offering the best in swimming and water-safety instruction. SPMS now provides the Chicagoland’s best service and repair staff, offering a range of services. Please see our “Services” page for a complete list of services available from SPMS.
