Parker Nathans Interviewing Chris Cathey, Founder of Agape Built Pools

Fifteen years ago, I installed my first pool simply by watching YouTube tutorials. Little did I know, this small project not only ignited my passion for transforming outdoor spaces, but also paved the way for my ventures into the pool and artificial turf industries.

Here, I share my journey from a DIY enthusiast to an entrepreneur, and how these experiences shape the services we provide at Agape Pools and EternaTurf.

The Beginnings

My professional journey began unexpectedly. After serving in the military, I returned home to Charleston, Indiana, where I embarked on a new mission to create beautiful, functional backyards. My military experience taught me discipline and the importance of meticulous planning, traits that have become the cornerstone of my business practices.

Building Agape Pools

Agape Pools was born from a genuine love for outdoor living and a desire to bring joy to homeowners through custom pool installations. Our process is thorough: when a homeowner contacts us, my team and I take the time to understand their vision, providing digital sketches and detailed estimates.

We handle everything in-house, from the initial design to the final touches, ensuring quality and consistency.

Why Do You Need a Pool?

Besides the mini-vacations to your background, adding an inground pool can increase your home’s value by 5% – 8%.

Choosing to install a pool is a significant decision. We understand that it’s not just about making a purchase—it’s about investing in a lifestyle. That’s why we offer flexible financing options, making this luxury accessible to more families. We aim to build trust with our clients by being transparent about the process and costs involved.

Laying The Groundwork For EternaTurf

Parallel to running Agape Pools, I founded EternaTurf after recognizing the benefits of artificial turf during a visit to Arizona. Turf installation complements our pool services by enhancing the overall aesthetic and functionality of outdoor spaces. EternaTurf caters to those who desire a pristine, low-maintenance yard, perfect for both residential and commercial properties.

Why EternaTurf?

Our turf solutions are about convenience and sustainability. From pet-friendly areas that prevent muddy paws to playgrounds that keep children clean, our products meet a variety of needs.

Moreover, the ability to change the appearance of your space without the hassle of traditional lawn maintenance is a significant advantage that we are proud to offer.

Looking Ahead

As we look to the future, my goal is to expand both Agape Pools and EternaTurf, ensuring that more people can experience the joy of exceptional outdoor living spaces. We are committed to innovation and customer satisfaction, continually adapting our services to meet changing needs and preferences.

We already have 5 locations like one of our newest in Sarasota.

What we care about is installing great pools and yards and having happy customers spreading us by word of mouth.

So long as we have that, that’s all we really need.
