Dave Roberts

Experience: I began servicing commercial pools and spas at 17 years old and began plumbing at about 18. In 1986, I became a plumbing and electrical contractor and worked for Padre Pools while doing so, and I’ve continued on in pool service, repair, plumbing and electrical. While I started out as a plumber for the company, I have continued building until taking over the Padre Pools in 2013. Having been the field so long I have a detailed understanding of pool construction, maintenance and hydraulics.

Throughout the years, I have found courtesy, competency, frequent and clear communication to be the key ingredients to a successful project.
