About the President of Aquatic Pools, Inc.
Ron Yates, president and sole stockholder of Aquatic Pools, Inc. has over 38 years of gunite application and pool construction experience. Ron started working on residential and commercial swimming pools as a gunite nozzle man for Sun-n-Fun Pools in 1974. Between 1975 and 1978, Ron worked for two gunite contractors in Florida: Crom Corporation (Gainesville) and Crockett & Bradley (Ft. Lauderdale), which served 17 west Florida coast pool companies. Three years after Ron returned to Sun-n-Fun Pools in 1978, he began his own custom swimming pool company: Aquatic Pools, Inc. While he was employed primarily as a gunite nozzle man he was exposed to all aspects of building pools and became fully qualified to operate his own pool company.
One thing that hasn’t changed over the years is our commitment to our customers’ satisfaction. We understand the financial investment a swimming pool can be so we want to make sure you are 10o% happy with your swimming pool design and construction. To ensure your satisfaction, we stick to a pressure-free sales process. You do not sign a contract until you have selected a design that reflects your dream and fits your budget. We guide you through the construction process, and our pool service techs ensure that all of the pool equipment is in perfect order and your pool is clean and in good order when we turn it over to you.
Our commitment to a quality finished product and our customers’ satisfaction is reflected in our awards. Aquatic Pools, Inc. has been recognized and applauded by industry publications including Pool and Spa News and our construction membership in PACE (Paramount Advisory Committee Enterprise).
By far our best recognition comes from our customers. Our business has thrived because of our word-of mouth referrals.
