Michael Baker

Michael Baker

Owner

Michael moved out to sunny Tucson Arizona in 2005 to escape the cold and look for a better opportunity. Shortly after moving to Arizona he was hired on as a Pool cleaner with a local company named Mike’s Pool Service and Repair. They taught him the in’s and out’s of Pool Service and Repair. A few years after he hired on with this locally grown company they sold off most of the business. During that process they were able to help him with his business start up. Michael found early on that relationships are the key to success. Honest and integrity really do matter in the growth of the company. Michael is also the Co-owner of Omni Pool Builders and Design, and Owner of Life Saver Pool Fence of Tucson. Michael has a beautiful wife and 3 awesome kids. His wife has supported him and this business from the beginning. Family is the most important thing to him in this life and they will always come first.
