our homes: POOL TRENDS Trendy Dives — The New Cool In Pool P ullium Pools has been a trendsetter for more than a century now. There was no such thing as a swimming pool company a century ago when Pullium was initially established. For that matter, there wasn’t really such a thing as a swimming pool in all of Coryell County, Texas, where the first concept of Pullium was begun. In 1916, when the first one was conceived, the idea evolved from cement contractor, Theo Pulliam, after years of building waterproof dipping vats for cattle. Theo quickly added swimming pool construction to his company’s services and Pulliam Pools has been on the cutting edge of pool creation ever since. BY MARSHA BROWN
