We believe in customer relationships over transactions.

To us, this business isn’t just about chemicals, but chemistry. Not just pumps, filters, heating or lighting, but knowledge, experience, reliability and relationships. Not size, but service. Those are the things that make the biggest splash with our customers, and it’s the way we’ve done business for nearly 30 years.

Company History

In 1984, Great Plains Supply opened in Lenexa, KS. Founder Steve Reiff had spent 25 years serving the trade in the Midwest market, employed by prominent manufacturers of the era, Swimquip, Sta-Rite, and Pac-Fab, as well as the Wholesale Distribution firm, Poolquip-McNeme.

In 1986, Jay Patterson opened Pool & Spa Products in Houston, TX. He had 20 years of experience with Carleton Woods, a pioneer pool builder in Beaumont, TX, and later with Poolquip-McNeme in Houston.

Since 1992, the two companies have operated jointly, serving the construction, service and retail trades in the Great Plains and Gulf Coast markets.

Now 20 years later, Steve, along with daughter, Susan Ahn, and Jay with son, Blake Patterson, continue to offer quality Wholesale Distribution service to the 21st century of swimming pool industry professionals, exclusively.

This service level is made possible because of our knowledgeable, extended family of long-time employees. Incidentally, the average seniority is 14 years.


Great Plains Supply and Pool & Spa Products are committed to providing our customers with quality service and distribution of pool and spa parts and products at competitive prices.


We will enhance the swimming pool and spa industry of the Great Plains and Gulf Coast markets by providing exemplary service, high-quality products and strong business relationships.
