Each year, we at River Pools and Spas meet with well over 100 households in the Central Va/Richmond area with respect to their inground swimming pool installation. And because so many folks know our thoughts and feelings (from this website) on all things "pool construction", they often ask us who are some of the other builders and competitors we have in the area.
Never ones to shy away from being blatantly honest with respect to competition, and wanting our customers to be as informed as possible, here is a list of some of the companies that have a solid inground pool building history in the Richmond area:
1. Pla Mor Pools: Having been around for years, Pla Mor pools is located in the Mechanicsville area, and specialize in vinyl liner inground pools. The company also installs fiberglass pools, and has a heavy emphasis on automatic pool cover installations.
2. Swim n Pools:Located in Chester Virginia, Swim-N-Pools has also been around the Richmond area for many years, having installed hundreds of vinyl liner inground swimming pools, with their main line being Pacific.
3. JoPa Pools: Whereas Pla-Mor and Swim-N-Pools have been mostly vinyl liner pool builders over the years, JoPa has always focused on concrete inground pools.
4. Douglas Aquatics: Another staple of the central Virginia pool market over the years, Douglas Aquatics specialized in inground gunnite and concrete pools, but also has a very large service division as well.
5. Richmond Pool and Patio: Like Pla-Mor and Swim-N-Pools, Richmond Pool and Patio has been doing vinyl liner pools by Fox for many, many years, and recently started doing fiberglass pools as well.
So there are 5 companies to consider if you're getting quotes for your swimming pool installation project.
