Our History

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

How We Got Started


After working for a local pool company for a couple years, Bob Davis chose to start his own pool service and construction company in June 1984, and Aqua Pros was born. At that time, 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 possible he could succeed in the pool industry.

Bob and wife Mary opened Aqua Pros’ first retail store in 1986 in a small building (Route 122) in Bedford because Bob believed that a bonafide, full service pool store would help sell more pools. After 10 years of building and servicing pools and spas in the Central Va area, Bob felt like the time was right to open 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. Bob and staff opened Aqua Pros’ 4th showroom in Salem in September 2014.

Today, Aqua Pros serves a large area from Charlottesville to West Virginia with the finest in ground and above ground swimming pools, hot tubs, and supplies. Aqua Pros carries the distinction of being the areas only BioGuard Platinum Dealer. BioGuard is recognized as the leading chemical manufacturer for the pool and spa industry and BioGuard Dealers like Aqua Pros offer a unique computerized water analysis program, which is probably our most valuable service to pool and spa owners.

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

A long time member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP), Aqua Pros uses only the finest materials assembled by the industry’s top manufacturers.
