Think about Swimming pools and Waterscapes is your one-stop pool firm

(Submitted /

Imagine Pools and Waterscapes is a one-stop shop, not only when it comes to designing your garden oasis, but also to maintain it. This Vernon-based, family-owned and operated company has served Okanagan residents since 2004 with the goal of providing years of worry-free enjoyment to its customers.

Imagine Pools is an A + rated company by the Better Business Bureau and prides itself on its service and value for money when building pools, but also the relationships it builds with its customers. Many customers have been with Imagine Pools for years and rely on the team to keep their pools in top operating condition.

“These relationships are a source of pride for us,” said Ron Yavis, who owns and runs the company with his wife Katie. He says that after a pool is built, continuous maintenance with appropriate environmentally friendly products is important. Imagine’s continuous service provides its customers with worry-free security so that they can enjoy their pool and the fun it brings.


Yavis’ sons Jordan and Sawyer also work as project managers on site for the company. Side by side with their father, they lead the crews who transform the concept of a pool from a dream into a reality.

According to Yavis, who has nearly 40 years of industry experience, the demand for backyard pools in Vernon has increased dramatically in recent years, especially last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As more people spend more time at home and the Okanagan weather helps them spend more time outdoors and soaking up the summer sun, the desire for a pool has kept the company’s eight-person staff very busy. Imagine is currently booking pool construction projects through 2023.

In addition to custom design and construction of residential swimming pools, as well as landscaping and renovation that are part of pool projects, the company also sells above-ground and recessed vinyl pool kits, bespoke vinyl linings, imagine fiberglass pools, pool equipment, accessories, and chemicals. They will also be renovating older pools and installing spas and hot tubs. The versatile company also offers a do-it-yourself consulting program and, if required, acts as a general contractor for backyard projects from conception to creation.

As a Totally Hayward and BioGuard dealer and a member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada, the company has won numerous local and national awards and has been featured in national and international magazines such as Pool and Spa Marketing (Canadian), and Watershapes (from California).


According to Yavis, in addition to producing efficiency and completing its projects, Imagine Pools and Waterscapes has quality control a priority. This gives customers a level of comfort that goes beyond the five-year processing guarantee that has already been granted.

Imagine Pools works diligently to uphold its reputation for integrity, quality work and approachable management. As a full service pool company, Imagine can be available for repair service, chemicals and on-site maintenance seven days a week from April to November and by phone / SMS / email the rest of the year.

“It’s one of the biggest areas of our business – the aftercare service,” said Yavis.
