Serving Southern Illinois & Southeast Missouri Since 1989
Jo-Co Pools has been building inground and above ground pools since 1989. Owners Joe and Patty Cohen, of Anna, IL, ran the business out of their home for five years until they had over 100 regular customers. In 1994, Jo-Co Pools opened up its first store on Main Street in Anna. Soon its circle of satisfied customers reached out to nearly a 90-mile radius from Red Bud and Sparta, IL to the North to Cairo, IL to the South, Harrisburg to the East, and all the way to Cape Girardeau and Jackson, MO in the West.
In 2009, Jo-Co Pools moved to its present location in the Anna Business Park at 1009 Enterprise Drive. It is the central hub where we continue to serve customers, many of whom have never stepped foot in our store. That is because we bring the store to them. With a simple call or email, we deliver pool supplies or send a trained technician right to their pool. Joe and Patty continue to be at the heart of the operations of Jo-Co Pools. It is Joe who talks to families wanting a pool and guides them through the decision-making process of what style and size of pool they want. Joe then constructs the pool of their dreams. Patty continues to be the Jo-Co Pools administrator, responsible for making sure the construction and service crews have everything they need to keep our customers swimming! “Treat other people the way you want to be treated” remains at the core of Jo-Co Pools today whether it be through answering the telephone, teaching pool care, or building a brand new pool.
Awards & Recognition
In 1994, Jo-Co Pools won its first Gold Medal at the Greater St. Louis Splash Awards. This prestigious award represented first place among entrees within a 150-mile radius of St. Louis. Since that time, Jo-Co Pools has won nine other Splash Awards.
In 1996, owner Joe Cohen was chosen as one of the eight Rising Stars of the swimming pool industry in the nation. Pool and Spa Age Magazine chose Joe over scores of entries.
Throughout his tenure as a pool professional, Joe has spent countless hours researching and attending classes to learn the latest technology available to his clients. In October 2014, Joe was awarded his first United States Patent on a pool wall he designed. This pool wall is now used on all of the inground pools he builds and also is distributed to other pool builders across the nation. This pool wall is not only one of the strongest polymer pool walls being used in the industry but is also made of recycled materials, making it environmentally responsible.
