Trust and Knowledge

Reaves NewsomRCS Pool & Spa is owned by Reaves Newsom of Roswell, GA.  Over his almost 30-year career in the pool industry Reaves has touched thousands of inground pool installations and renovations across the South. That breadth of knowledge includes both the residential and commercial sides of the business and operating them at peak performance.  By obtaining technical certifications through the PHTA (Pool and Hot Tub Association, formerly Association of Pool and Spa Professionals, APSP) his education became a fundamental underpinning of his growth and success in the industry.  Reaves continues that legacy today as a student and instructor for several certification and continuing education courses for the PHTA.  He currently holds the Certified Building Professional (CBP®) designation, the highest builder’s certification available through the PHTA.

Certified Pool Builder

To earn the CBP® certification, qualified PHTA members must successfully complete a standardized written examination that measures their knowledge of residential and commercial pool and spa construction. The program requires that the builder adhere to strict ethical standards and have a commitment to the highest standards of workmanship and construction, business stability, and superior customer relations. In addition, Certified Building Professionals must complete ongoing continuing education in order to maintain their certification.  Newsom is joined by just over 500 experienced pool and spa builders, foreman and contractors nationwide who have met all of the CBP® program requirements.  In Georgia there are but a handful of CBP® certified builders.

“After years working for large companies, thousands of pools and spas with my fingerprints on them and numerous local industry advocacies RCS Pool and Spa was born. My passion has never been deeper to build and grow a company that produces best-in-class workmanship, integrates the newest technological features, and installs some of the most inviting backyard pool environments in the Atlanta market today”  – Reaves Newsom, CBP®

Doing Business The Right Way

Trusting the renovation of your existing pool, or the design and construction of a new pool to an unqualified individual or company is actually really easy to do in Georgia. I’ve heard the horror stories of customers outwitted by unscrupulous individuals and companies and have seen the results first hand. Don’t get caught with a deal that is too good to be true, because it probably is.  There are good people out there in Atlanta that represent the pool industry and its customers well. They are well trained and qualified by long-standing experience and industry certification. RCS Pool & Spa has those traits you trust. Ask our customers, they’ll tell you straight.

David FletcherDavid Fletcher, Sr. Design Consultant

David approaches the design path with tried-and-true tactics upon a firm foundation.

After leaving the South Georgia farm he grew up on and attending The Atlanta College of Art in 1979, he embarked upon a long career in the outdoor advertising industry in Savannah, Athens and Atlanta. This gave him the opportunity to shape a solid perception of his design craft.

This underpinning still drives his creative efforts in the swimming pool industry, exhibited by several pool design awards gained over the years. Though well into his 20th year, he still feels the same joyful satisfaction that he experienced the first day he sketched a free-form pool on notebook paper for a young, married couple in Braselton.

Few people can lay claim to that long-sought desire of loving what you do for a living. David lives that life. It’s a long way from the peanut fields of South Georgia but he’s really happy he’s here!
