Norm Whitted, owner of Aqua Blue Designs, Inc., a locally owned, bonded, and fully insured installer of fiberglass pools and spas, knows a thing or two about backyard swimming pools. With more than 23 years of experience in the industry, he is one of the metro area’s premier installers of backyard pools using the best materials on the market today.

“Fiberglass is a superior way of building a backyard pool,” noted Whitted. “It may not be the least expensive way, but it is the best way.”



Fiberglass inground backyard swimming pools are gaining velocity when it comes to the choice of homeowners. First of all, they are extremely low maintenance. (Translation? More time to enjoy the pool instead of cleaning it.) Plus, they are highly compatible with saltwater chlorination, Ozone, and UV systems. Further, a fiberglass pool can be installed in a relatively short amount of time, as in days instead of weeks or months. Additionally, a fiberglass pool scores high in the longevity department. All around, this material is the superior choice when it comes to creating your backyard oasis.



“Aqua Blue Designs has so many options from which to choose, including tanning ledges, swimming lanes, and beach entry designs,” expressed Whitted, who indicated the latter is quite popular for families with young kids, as the kids can just walk right into the pool as if they are on a sandy beach. This pool design also offers a great place to just hang out in or near the water’s edge and watch the kids play.

And if you want to add yet another layer of style to your fiberglass pool, you can install any number of water features, such as waterfalls, bubblers, and deck jets. 



“Most people enjoy hearing the sounds of running water for the relaxing and calming effect it offers,” said Whitted.

For those who want to enjoy the sanctuary of their backyard year-round, a spa is the ideal solution.



“With a separate spa, you can enjoy year-round relaxation without having to winterize it, as it operates independently from the pool itself,” explained Whitted. “Some people enjoy them in the summer, too, just by turning the temperature down in them and using them as a place to cool off on warmer days.”

When you partner with Aqua Blue Designs for your outdoor pool project, you are on the receiving end of a wealth of benefits, as Whitted incorporates into every pool a saltwater chlorination system and a heater.


“The salter water system is automated and reads the chlorine and pH levels and adjusts the chlorine level accordingly by itself,” said Whitted, whose company offers upfront what people want in a pool, including filtration and cantilever decking. Pools from Aqua Blue Designs are also available with automatic pool covers to keep debris, dust, and other elements out of them when not in use.

“Between the saltwater systems, the fiberglass construction, and the automatic pool cover, each pool is easily maintained,” emphasized Whitted. “You can close the cover, go away on vacation, return home, open the cover, and just get in the pool. It’s that simple.”



Aqua Blue Designs specializes in custom work and also designs each pool specifically to the client’s needs and desires. Along with the benefit of a lifetime structural warranty, these pools are spectacularly beautiful. Further, because Whitted works with several manufacturers, he can offer clients a selection of nearly 300 different shapes, sizes, and configurations in a variety of colors. 

If you have been dreaming of a backyard oasis, there is no time like the present to make that dream come true.


Fresh View

The bottom line when it comes to inground swimming pools is that Aqua Blue Designs pools are superior to others because of the fiberglass pool material, a high level of automation, automatic covers and superior filtration systems. Together these features make pool care and maintenance a breeze.
