Your Pool Partners

Our desire is to provide as much support, information, products and services to our customers in Iroquois County. We believe that our mission is to help every home owner learn how to care for their outdoor living space & swimming pool to improve their quality of outdoor living.

It's all part of our mission to become your Pool Partners! Kristie Cheatum is passionate about leading the charge and you'll often find her in the field with her customers and their pools. We're constantly striving to reach more customers, provide higher quality products and educate on a continual basis.



"Kristie Cheatum and her team at Illiana Backyard Fun have supported us with all our pool needs for ten plus years.  As an owner and the manager of Creekside Community Center, I started with minimal knowledge of swimming pools or how much tender-loving care they need.  Kristie taught me most of what I now know and continues providing all the products needed to take care of our heated indoor pool.  I personally recommend her and Illiana Backyard Fun.  

Kristie, thanks for all you continue to do for us."
