Poolin’ the Shore since ’74, AQUA Pools & Spas in Easton is celebrating their 40th Anniversary in 2014. Established in 1974, AQUA has grown through many milestones to become the Eastern Shore of Maryland’s largest and most experienced swimming pool & spa company.
AQUA designs, builds, renovates and services custom residential and commercial pools and has been recognized with dozens of national, regional, and international swimming pool design awards, including the Gordon W. Rudd “Pool of the Year” award in both 1993 and 2013. AQUA’s construction & service region now stretches from the bridge to the beach – from Stevensville to the Maryland and Delaware beaches.
AQUA opened its current “World Headquarters” in 2007 on the corner of Glebe and Mistletoe Drive. Their Easton showroom features Hot Spring Hot Tubs, Primo Ceramic Grills and offers a full selection of swimming pool toys, games, floats, umbrellas, and pool accessories and is backed by a well-stocked warehouse. Their helpful staff offers free water testing and advice.
In 2009 AQUA was named the Talbot County Chamber of Commerce “Large Business of the Year”. In 2011 AQUA was recognized nationally with the “Above and Beyond” Retail Excellence award from Watkins Manufacturing for their charitable and community efforts. In 2014 Dan Bridges, Owner & President of AQUA, was named the “Business Man of the Year” by the Talbot County Chamber of Commerce.
AQUA has also recently launched a new website aquabbq.com dedicated to Primo Ceramic Grills and now ships them nationally. AQUA now also offers premium Twin Eagles Stainless Grills for custom outdoor kitchens.
“The Eastern Shore of Maryland is a special, idyllic place to live” says Dan Bridges, “we feel that an AQUA pool, hot tub, or grill compliments the Eastern Shore lifestyle perfectly.”
AQUA will host a 40th Anniversary Customer Appreciation Open House on Saturday July 26th. The event will feature a very special “Thank You” Sale, Door Prizes & Giveaways, Free Polaris Cleaner Repair Labor, manufacturer representatives, food from aquabbq.com, ice cream from the Scottish Highland Creamery.
