The Able Pools Story

Pool & Customer Delight is Our #1 Priority

Able Pools and Spas, a North Carolina licensed General Contractor, is a family business started by Frank and Ruth Kearney in 1995. In 2016 Able was acquired by Sam and Caroline Manoogian, and their children, who had long desired to move to Wilmington from Raleigh. Sam’s extensive construction background in large project management and quality assurance, was a perfect fit for Able and he has continued Able’s tradition of highest quality construction and customer care.


Our Story

Since 1992 ABLE Pools and Spas has constructed over 400 Fiberglass pools mostly in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties and as far away as Murrell’s Inlet South Carolina, New Bern North Carolina, and many places in between.

In the fall of 2000, we were proud to be awarded an exclusive dealership with San Juan Fiberglass Pools of Lakeland Florida, the industry leader in fiberglass pools. Since our first year with San Juan Pools, we have been named as a “Dealer of Excellence” every year, because of our commitment to high quality construction and customer service – especially after each project has been completed.

San Juan has been building fiberglass pools since 1958 and their first pool is still being used in Seattle Washington over 50 years since it was installed. The San Juan Fiberglass pool company is a family owned business and continues to be run on a daily basis by family members. If we have a question or a concern, or need help or guidance on a particular San Juan fiberglass pool product, it is a wonderful resource to be able to call on any of the hundreds of San Juan Pool dealers across America. We also meet regularly to discuss products and technical improvements and share our experiences in constructing swimming pools.
