Meet the Expert, Gene Trumbull

Custom Built Spas was started as a Veteran Owned Business, established in 1999 by Gene Trumbull. Gene understands the desire and satisfaction fellow DIYers, (do it yourself), get by being able to construct and complete different kinds of projects by themselves. What he also came to realize was that when looking into building a hot tub, there was virtually no real quality DIY information available anywhere for doing this type of project. Oh, sure you can find a few videos on YouTube with all kinds of crazy ways to construct a spa or hot tub. But most of those quite honestly, produced results you would not be proud to show off in your own backyard.

In addition, the information that you were able to find, lacked way too many important and essential details, critical to someone looking to complete a successful spa or hot tub project. Armed with that knowledge, Gene made it his mission to turn building a spa, hot tub or swim spa into a very doable, high quality DIY project not only for himself, but for others as well. Long story short this all started almost 20 years ago!

Since then, Gene has become one of the nations most recognized and a leading authority on spa, hot tub, swim spa, plunge pool, cocktail pool and exercise pool building. He has been interviewed by industry magazines such as Pool & Spa News and articles on his project manuals have been posted on several prominent "handyman" web sites over the last several years, plus Gene has countless customer who have completed projects not just in the USA, but in many countries around the world!

Here's what's so “unique” about what Gene and Custom Built Spas offers to anyone buying his spa, hot tub and swim spa building information package. They can get FREE one on one personalized coaching help on their own project until it’s done! As Gene puts it, “I become your personal spa building Coach!” Think about it, who offers that kind of service these days? Go ahead and read through his testimonials page and see what customers have had to say!
