About Us
  • Lorin Johnson
  • Raft to Rafters Pool and Spa first opened its doors in 1974 and we have been family owned and operated since the very beginning. Our story begins with our founder, Lorin Johnson, and his wife Janet, who were busy raising five children in rural Columbus, Indiana. Lorin was a do-it-yourself man and decided to build an in ground pool for his children to have a place close to home to play during the summer. Soon after Lorin built their first pool, neighbors began asking him to build a pool in their yard. Raft to Rafters Pool and Spa first began operating out of Lorin and Janet’s garage and soon after, Raft to Rafters opened a location on 25th Street right here in Columbus.

Matthew Miller, third generation owner, first started working for his grandfather at Raft to Rafters Pool and Spa as a young man. Matthew has a wide array of experience in the pool industry; from working in the field building new pools, to managing the retail store.

We started out as a family business and our goal is to build strong, trusting relationships with our customers. There are many choices out there for pool service and maintenance. Almost anybody can slap a pool service sticker on a truck, and call themselves a service technician; but, no other company can match our combination of skill and experience. Your pool represents a tremendous investment in time, energy, and money. Don’t trust it to some guy off the street; go with a company who has a proven successful history, a company like Raft to Rafters Pool and Spa.

We can do everything from weekly maintenance to comprehensive design and installation services. If you want to resolve your pool problems quickly, and at a cost-efficient price, give Raft to Rafters Pool and Spa a call at 812-372-7983, or visit us online at www.rafttorafters.com.
