Your stressing yourself out if your not asking Kristie the pool expert. One visit from her and we were swimming the next day. Shorter pool opening time = longer summer!

-Melinda Sharp-Thorsten

Our Customers Love US

Julie D Pool

"We always call Illiana Backyard Fun for all our summer pool needs. We love our 'easy pool' chemicals. It really is easy! We have Kristie open and close our pool, and our only job is to enjoy it all summer long. I highly recommend Illiana Backyard Fun!"

Julie D.


"We have been customers for... hmmmm... man years. : Well, actually irrelevant... because the 'customer service' is awesome! If we have a question... we can call and the whole staff is very knowledgeable about everything! If not, they call someone who knows the answer! Always have super 'up to date' products for our pool at great prices! Always very helpful in any situation we might have."

Allen & Christie G.

"We were having some water problems when I went to Kristy for some advice. She suggested we switch to EZ Pool. I twas a great decision. Our water has never been better, and Kristie's customer service is second to none. She's always just a phone call away no matter how big or small my concern."

Luci D.

1 - Great customer service

"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."

Pool Liner

"We choose Illiana Backyard Fun based off of so many wonderful recommendations. We are SO glad we did. They installed our new pool liner and filer for summer in no time! They are very customer focused, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone."

Megan D.


"There are numerous pool stores out there, more than willing to sell you a pool or spa, then the relationship is over. With IBF, the relationship is ongoing. Every pool eventually will have issues. Kristie and her staff will come out immediately, stay until the problem is resolved and always follow up. Align yourself with the team at IBF and learn what true customer service is all about."
