The Pool Doctor is proud to announce that it has been inducted into the AQUA 100 class of 2023, an honor bestowed upon only 10 North American pool and spa retailers each year. We take pride in earning this recognition and sharing it with our dedicated and hardworking employees, as well as our loyal customers who continue to make The Pool Doctor a leading pool and hot tub company throughout North Kingstown, Coventry, and the surrounding areas. 

The AQUA 100, presented by AQUA Magazine, is an industry-leading competition designed to honor excellence in pool and spa retail. In light of the adversity specialty retailers of all kinds have faced over the past decade — the rise of online shopping, the pressure of a recession, and adapting throughout the global pandemic — the AQUA 100 honors the diamonds of excellence that have not only survived but thrived, proving once and for all the spirit of brick-and-mortar businesses will carry on. 

“We take pride in earning this recognition from AQUA magazine,” says Debbi Leclerc, owner of The Pool Doctor. “Since opening in 1989, we’ve remained dedicated to providing customer-focused service in all that we do. This honor not only recognizes our hard-working team of professionals who consistently go above and beyond for our customers but also speaks volumes about our customers who have remained loyal to our family-owned and operated pool store. We wouldn’t be here today without them.” 

The rigorous application process requires entrants to provide detailed information on company history, customer service, store design, digital presence, marketing, and community involvement, complete with supporting documents, according to AQUA Magazine. Applicants were judged by an independent panel of retail experts.

“This national competition evaluates each business on a variety of measures, and the blind scoring of the judges ensures a truly worthy winner,” says AQUA Magazine Executive Editor Scott Webb. “It is quite the honor to be selected as an AQUA 100 winner, especially in today’s market.”
