About Us

Swim-N-Pools Billiards & Spas has been in Chester, VA for nearly 30 years. We have evolved over the years in what products we carry and have grown to have one of the largest service departments in the Richmond, VA area. We specialize in in-ground vinyl liner pools and fiberglass pools, and have a retail store to accommodate all of our customers with their chemical, accessory, and service needs.

Our Story

The McDaniel's began installing inground pools in 1985 from their Chesterfield residence. Within two years, their inground swimming pool business expanded to include its first, full-service retail store in Chester.

Since the opening of the first retail store, Swim-N-Pools Billiards & Spas has gained the respect of its customers and suppliers alike which has allowed us to offer nationally recognized products. We have a dedicated and trained sales staff to assist our customers, a full service department to support all product lines, and multiple installation crews. The addition of billiards has complimented our product mix nicely because it allows our customers to complete their “at-home vacation spot”.

We are dedicated to provide knowledgeable customer service. We strive to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations by supplying quality products and offering reliable customer service for that product.
