Our Founder

From humble beginnings with borrowed equipment in 1998, Floridian Pools now spans 3 generations and is one of the premier pool companies in South Florida. Our founder Ricky L. Davis Sr. has over 30 years in the pool industry beginning as a day laborer. After mastering the tools of the trade, the entrepreneurial bug bit and the vision was cast for Floridian Pools by Ricky. As we expanded, we became Floridian Pools Resurfacing and have more recently been rebranded as Floridian Pools. What has stayed consistent is our commitment to providing an experience for each of our clients, as we work collaboratively to develop the backyard into an oasis.
