About Us

For over twenty five years, Owner Rich Tarricone has built a solid reputation as one of Sarasota County's most trusted business professionals.

Richard is committed to providing quality pool expertise to the community. He believes that a reputation as an honest and reliable business is the recipe for success. While others seek to profit by cutting corners, or recommending unnecessary services to customers, Rich has proven that a good reputation and consistent ser vice will reap bigger profits in the long run.

Rich grew up in upstate NY helping his family with their award winning resort business in Lake George. After moving to Florida, Rich began apprenticing under his brother Drew at the age of 17. After putting himself through college and working for a Fortune 500 company Rich took his business skills and returned to his brother's successful pool business. After the tragic passing of his brother, Rich and his business partner eventually started their own pool company. After 13 successful years his residential and commercial pool company was purchased by a corporation to act as a model that was to be replicated across the State of Florida.

Rich spent the next 5 years being a regional sales manager for Pebble Technology, Inc., a world leader in superior quality interior pool finishes. Rich is now president of Aquatic Pool Systems LLC, a consulting, supply, repair and renovation company.
