In March 1975, Gary Smith of Claxton, Georgia decided he wanted to start his own swimming pool business. Three weeks after walking into the bank and acquiring his business loan, he built his first pool.
Pride Pool Company started with one location in Claxton. From there, the company grew with the opening of three locations in Savannah, plus additional locations in Statesboro and Brunswick. After purchasing a spa company and relocating it to Claxton, Pride Pool Company became Pride Pools & Spas Inc.
Pride Pools & Spas Inc. installed over 3,000 pools to satisfied customers and became a trusted industry name. In March 1999, Mr. Smith retired and turned the company over to three of his children, who changed the name to Pride Pools, Spas & Leisure Products Inc. We now operate two retail locations in Claxton and Savannah and a service location in Savannah.
Today, Pride Pools, Spas and Leisure Products Inc. continues building and installing above and in-ground pools and luxury spas, and offering related services to our customers.
