Business Hours


Douglas Aquatics was established in 1970 by F. Douglas Salvia and Douglas W. Langford when the two, who both had a long history in the pool and spa industry, joined forces to create a pool management firm. In 1972, F. Douglas Salvia reorganized the company and began offering equipment sales, chemical sales and full repair of commercial and residential filtration equipment. The company began installing inground swimming pools in 1974.

Throughout the years, Douglas Aquatics has gone through many changes, but continuously remains dedicated to its core values of honesty, integrity, knowledge, dependability and accountability. Whether our customers are looking for award-winning pool, spa or fountain design and construction, or if they are in the market for residential and commercial pool service, maintenance and management, we are a full-service company ready to handle all of your pool, spa and fountain care needs.

Since the beginning, the Douglas Aquatics team remains dedicated to providing expert pool design and construction, as well as dependable service and maintenance. With more than 45 years of experience in the pool and spa industry, we understand what it takes to ensure our clients are completely satisfied, and we continuously strive to do what it takes to make that happen.

We are active members of many industry associations, including the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals and the National Plasterers Council. And we are active members of both the Masters Pool Guild and Genesis 3 Society of Watershape Designers, both prestigious international communities of elite custom pool builders.

We take pride in our long-standing reputation throughout Richmond and the surrounding areas and we look forward to providing you with the same care we have built our business on the last 45 years. Contact us today to become a part of the Douglas Aquatics history and family.
