For more than 80 years, S.R. Smith has had a singular focus: Create make the pool experience better for both swimmers and owners. If it involves a pool, chances are we’ve “seen it” and if there’s a way to improve, we’ll find it. We were the first to manufacture diving boards on a commercial scale. We were first to focus on salt-friendly products. We have a full line of unique pool slides that complement backyard decor. Starting blocks are now designed with a track start wedge – a concept we improved by allowing the wedge to be tucked away when not in use. Our lane line storage reel with the largest capacity on the market saves deck space. Our comprehensive line of accessibility products helps ensure everyone can enjoy the benefits of being in the water.
