Barto Pool & Spa has been in the local business community since 1929.
In 2018, Amy Barto sold the company to Jay Stong, the President and Majority Owner of Salter’s Fireplace Patio Grill in Hatfield and Eagleville.
Jay will not be changing the experience Barto customer’s have come to appreciate over the years:
- The name will stay the same: Barto Pool and Spa.
- Barto is not moving from Phoenixville.
- The staff – many of which as been with Barto for 10-20+ years – will remain the same.
- We will continue to provide the best quality service.
As a matter of fact, the only thing customers will notice from the transition is MORE products and services for indoor and outdoor living.
Barto Pool and Spa will also continue to be a Marquis Spas dealer as well as stock everyone’s favorite pool and spa supplies and accessories. Plus, Barto’s service plans will continue to fulfill customer’s opening and closing needs including year-round service calls when needed – same store hours, seven days a week!
The relationship between the two companies is a WARM one! It just makes sense to add outdoor living room patio furniture, outdoor fire, shade and an outdoor kitchen to enhance your Barto pool and/or spa. Call or stop by the large showroom and see why since 1970, Barto Pool & Spa has been building relationships…one backyard at a time.

Barto Family History
In 1929, A. J. Barto started a coal and fuel oil delivery service. His son, Alex R. Barto, took over the company in the late 1960’s. To balance out the seasonality of the oil business, the company became Sylvan Pool Inground Warranty Service Dealers and Barto Pool Service was thus founded in 1970. As hot tubs made their way east from California, Barto Pools became one of the earliest hot tub or spa dealers in the area. While Barto no longer does warranty work for Sylvan, and no longer delivers oil, they do service most residential in-ground pools and Marquis Hot Tubs.
From a small mom-and-pop organization, Barto Pool & Spa has grown into one of the premier pool and spa companies in the area. The company continued to win awards for service and performance. Barto Pool & Spa was regularly featured in trade journals and has become a known leader in their industry. In 2014 the company was featured as Retail Stars by Spa Retailer Magazine. The company is very involved with their community, and are proud sponsors of the Make-a-Wish Foundation, as well as many other organizations.
Barto Pool & Spa was thrilled to be selected for the Mercury’s 2012 Reader’s Choice Award, #1 Pool Supply Store in the Tri-County Area. For 2013 and 2014, they were voted Best Above Ground Pool Dealer in the Tri-County Area. Thanks to wonderful, loyal customers! Barto is also a 2018 Trade Certified Spa Retailer.
