CPS Pools & Spas was founded in 1957 by Thomas Gabe Draughn as an additional business venture that went from digging holes for pool builders to a full-time pool contractor. In 1970, Larry Thomas Draughn (Thomas Gabe Draughn’s son), took over the business upon his dad’s passing. He turned the company into not only a business that built residential pools, but also one that specializes in commercial pools, water slides (in Mississippi and in Texas), as well as all types of gunite work, bridge repair, drainage ditches, lining cooling towers, and rock structures over a five-state area. Larry’s two sons, Shane and Tommy, have been exposed to the business since they were in diapers. They took over the business in 1997, and through hard work and perseverance they grew the business even more. In addition to the showroom at 3776 I-55 South in Jackson, in 2012 they opened another CPS Pools & Spas at 120 Beaver Creek Drive in Ridgeland. Both retail locations are equipped to handle all of your pool needs. CPS Pools & Spas offers weekly cleaning services, and they also have a professional service department that can take care of any repair issues. CPS Pools & Spas designs, sells, and installs new vinyl liner and gunite pools. They also offer liner replacements and total pool renovations. When you are selecting a pool company to build your backyard stay-cation area, there is no better choice than Mississippi’s oldest and largest company—CPS’s quality and workmanship are unsurpassed in the business. Give CPS Pools & Spas a call and they will help you turn your backyard into a beautiful showplace. Today, being family-owned and operated for 60 years is a huge milestone for any business. The Draughn family is proud of their heritage and commitment to their business and look forward to serving the community and surrounding states for many years to come. With the next generation being brought up around the family business now, there is no telling what the future holds!
