Our History

Aqua Pros provides you with the finest swimming pools, hot tubs, service and supplies.

How We Got Started

Bob Davis started Aqua Pros in Bedford, Virginia in 1984 after working for a local pool company building and servicing pools  for a couple years.   Bob started out as a swimming pool cleaning and service company and in the spring of 1985,  Aqua Pros built its first inground swimming pool.  Bob’s focus was on building the finest inground swimming pools possible, and he believed that if he paid attention to the details and built the best swimming pools he could succeed in the pool business.  That first year, Bob and another friend put in three swimming pools and Aqua Pros ventured into the hot tub industry.  Bob actually began selling hot tubs before he had a retail showroom.  Then, at the end of the summer, Bob married his wife, Mary and they planned to open Aqua Pros’ first retail showroom in Bedford.
Bob believed that a full service hot tub and pool store would succeed in Bedford and in spring of 1986 Bob and new wife Mary opened Aqua Pros’ first retail store in a small building (Route 122) in Bedford.  Aqua Pros immediately became a BioGuard swimming pool chemical dealer and after 10 years of building and servicing pools and spas in the Central Va area, Bob opened a 2nd Aqua Pros location in Lynchburg, on Timberlake Road. That store was an immediate success and Bob opened Aqua Pros’ 3rd store just a year later in Madison Heights.
That same year, Aqua Pros entered the Barbecue and Hearth Industry and still is today.
Finally, in September of 2014 Bob and staff opened Aqua Pros’ 4th showroom in Salem – Roanoke, Virginia.
Today, Aqua Pros serves a large area from Charlottesville to West Virginia with the finest in ground and above ground swimming pools, hot tubs, hot tub and swimming pool chemicals and supplies. Aqua Pros also carries the distinction of being the areas only Marquis Spa dealer and offers Marquis Hot Tubs factory direct.  Aqua Pros is also a BioGuard Platinum Chemical Dealer and offers BioGuard’s computerized water analysis of pool and spa customers water at no charge as an added value.
Since Aqua Pros’ inception in 1984, Bob Davis’ goal of being the best has always been at the forefront.  Stop into any of Aqua Pros 4 showrooms in Lynchburg, Salem-Roanoke, Madison Heights, or Bedford to see for yourself the Aqua Pros advantage.



What Makes Us Special

Through the years of growth and expansion, the list of satisfied Aqua Pros customers has grown and with that growth, Bob has been fortunate to develop a staff of retail and service professionals he believes are the most knowledgeable anywhere. Aqua Pros’ service technicians must service pools, spas, tanning beds, gas logs, wood, gas, and pellet stoves to a very large customer base. Aqua Pros is a certified Chimney Sweep.

In-ground pool customers now often want a more personal outside poolscape than just a “backyard pool.” Aqua Pros can do both as they offer excellent in-house design services. Bob started out as a hands-on builder and nothing has changed since that beginning in that respect, as Bob is still on each of his jobs daily. Customers testify they choose Aqua Pros because the owner is so often on the job making sure it’s built right
