The Birth of Swim University

We built Swim University in 2007. Matt Giovanisci, a former pool and spa care nerd created the site to help owners around the world.

Matt started working in his hometown pool store at 13 year old. He’s worked at three pool companies as both a retail and service manager. He’s helped thousands of people take care of their pools and hot tubs in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

He’s written for Aqua Magazine, Pool & Spa News, Pool & Spa Marketing (Canada), and Splash! (Australia). Pool & Spa News made him a centerfold in a 2013 issue of up-and-coming industry professionals.

“I like when I can find a good, accurate, reliable source of information. This goes for anything and everything. That’s why I respect Swim University and Matt Giovanisci. To separate fact from fiction, dealers’ and manufactures’ hype from solid info. This is what responsible tub owners want. I just want one “go to” guy who knows his stuff. Who respects himself and his clients, is clear and honest, and has great sense of humor, to boot.”
– Chris Conwell
