Locally owned & family operated since 2002

Family owned

The Pool House has been established in Fort Dodge since 2002. David Folsom started his career in hot tub & swimming pool sales in 2005 and acquired the business later that year. His wife, Alicia was brought into the company in 2011. It has continued as a family oriented business ever since!

Formerly located on North 15th Street, we upgraded and moved to a more centralized location, next to Foley Clothing in 2011. We are located at 318 South 25th Street in Fort Dodge.

Besides servicing Iowa we have expanded our pool installation to the Missouri area.

Our large showroom showcases luxury hot tubs, Sundance Spas®. Each series offers a variety of sizes, styles, and price points to fit various customer needs. We also offer in-ground and above-ground swimming pools, TheraSaunas®, pool and spa accessories, exclusive water care products, and free water analysis. We are staffed with factory-trained technicians and salespersons with years of experience to provide outstanding service to all customers and are the only authorized Sundance Spas® dealership in the area.

Our Team

The Pool House is a team of people trained and dedicated to meeting customers’ needs. Whether it’s guiding a customer through a purchase, delivering or servicing a hot tub or pool, or training customers on usage and water care, we’ve got the staff and experience.


Not only will you find David out in the field, he also makes sales appointments, manages installations, deliveries and service. He is gifted with his hands, and has an eye for excellence. David has the best memory around!  He can remember what a customer has purchased and where they are from, even if it’s been ten years or more! Yet, he is terrible with names! Customers know that he will take care of their needs and are always pleased with the outcome of his work.


Alicia specializes in customer service and office management. She is well versed in water care for pools and spas and has a seen a lot, so she can answer your questions no matter how “out there” you think they might be. She handles all the internal operations of the business, including the yucky stuff! She loves being able to work with her husband, David.


Alicia’s sister offers support in water chemistry and maintenance. She provides weekly water care for our hot tub and pool customers throughout the summer months. She is detail-oriented and likes making pools look beautiful!


Chris is an essential member of our pool and spa installation and repair team. He tackles any job we throw at him. He has plenty of experience with electrical and plumbing, has dabbled in water chemistry and is our key installer. Known as “The Tall One,” the only thing he has issues with is squeezing into tight spaces!


We’re excited to introduce Nathan to our team this year! He is quick to learn, fun, enthusiastic and a hard –worker.

David A.

Being the son of an entrepreneur means you’re a shoe-in for joining the team! You might catch him delivering a hot tub or building pools this summer. Someday he’ll appreciate it!


David’s mother has been a team player, mainly as a fill-in at The Pool House since 2007. She likes to help her family in any way she can.


Katie joined her family at The Pool House to help occasionally with pool & spa cleanings. She also fills in at the store once in awhile. She is always ready to help!
