Dolphin Pool & Spas


Simon Spiers was born Romford, Essex, England but raised in Newhaven, East Sussex (a harbour town), and always fascinated with water. At age 20 while in Gibralter, he joined an 80’ ketch-rigged sailboat bound for St. Lucia. Following the Atlantic hurricane season he worked his way, island-hopping, until he eventually ended up in Tampa, Florida. He found his life-partner (Jo) there and decided the USA was his future and the pool industry was his new challenge. He started his industry career with Tropicana Pools in Tampa then moved to Gary Pools in San Antonio and eventually to a position as Sales Manager for Sylvan Pools in Atlanta. He left Anthony & Sylvan in 1999 to begin his own custom pool-building firm in Charlotte, NC. His focus as a pool builder is custom creations that encompass the entire backyard environment. Check the “Galleries” link to see some of those projects.

Simon says, “Pool by Design is focused on a single word, compassion, putting everyone in our company into the shoes of our customers and making “the CUSTOMER’S DREAMS COME TRUE”. The company’s motto, “If we’re not having fun, it’s time to quit!”
