Welcome To Aquatech Pool Systems

For over 22 years, owners Bruce and Suzzette Bartell have built a solid reputation as one of the Bay Area’s most trusted businesses. The Bartell’s are committed to providing quality service to the community and they believe that a reputation as an honest and reliable business is the recipe for success. While others seek to profit by cutting corners, or recommending unnecessary services to customers, the Bartells believe that consistent service will reap greater profits in the long run.

Bruce and Suzzette have since brought on their youngest son, Aaron Bartell. Aaron grew up in Northern California, helping with the family business. He began apprenticing his father at a young age and has developed a deep knowledge and understanding of running a successful enterprise. Aaron has inherited their family’s unique insight and knowledge.

I’m a California native with a background in payroll. I have had various jobs including the one where I met my husband 31 years ago. We fell in love with the Contra Costa area and have been raising our family here for over 20 years.

I joined this company not knowing anything about the pool cover industry. I have learned so much and continue to learn, thanks to my wonderful co-workers. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two new grandsons and my new position as worthy matron with the Order of the Eastern Star. (This years project is the local food bank).

Hi my name is Jennifer and I’ve been with AquaTech since January 2016 and I am the office assistant.
I have a background in administrative assistance and customer service and have worked for such companies as ITT, Williams-Sonoma and Behr Paint. I really enjoy working at AquaTech. It’s a smaller company with a wonderful “family” feel. I especially enjoy helping customers feel safe and secure with a cover or fence protecting their kids from the swimming pool.

Ronnie Parker
Ronnie Parker Operations Manager
I have over twenty years experience in the Pool and Water Park industry in construction and operations. In the past ten years, I have held the position of Maintenance Manager at three major Water Parks in the US with two of them being here in California. I decided to step away from the Water Park industry and accept the Operations Manager position here at Aquatech Pool Systems in 2018. This gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my family and friends. I look forward to using my construction, maintenance, and operations experience to continue to help the company grow and prosper in the future. I enjoy knowing that the contributions I make here at Aquatech Pool Systems help keep our customers safe on a daily basis and it gives them the opportunity to save money with their pool operating costs.
