David Akins, Designer

David Akins has been in the swimming pool industry for over 20 years, doing everything from digging ditches and laying stone, to sales and design. As an experienced swimming pool designer, David excelled - winning numerous APSP design awards as well as being named one of the top ten up-and-coming gunite pool builders in the nation by Pool & Spa News.

David is the son of Lew Akins, one of the most accomplished pool builders of the last 50 years. David's experience has lead him to build some of the most complex and stunning swimming pools in the world. His experience in the industry proved that the apple doesn't fall from from the tree, designing several international award-winning pools, including a pool that has won more design awards that any other pool ever.

David attributes his success to constantly staying on top of what's new in the industry, and thinking outside of the box. He also studied architecture in college and is constantly trying to push the envelope with innovative ideas, like fogging systems, all glass interior, windows in the pool, vanishing spas, and other creative concepts.

David also has an extensive background in the construction end of things and has been a construction superintendant.
