AQUA Pools & Spas won the prestigious Gordon W. Rudd “Best in Show” Award along with three other Pools of Distinction Awards during the 2013 Association of Pool & Spa Professionals’ annual gala, held in January in Atlantic City. The Gordon W. Rudd Awards of Excellence recognize and reward the most beautiful and creative installation of pools and hot tubs across Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and the District of Columbia.  

The Easton-based company received the honor for its installation of a custom vanishing edge swimming pool in Stevensville. The infinity pool features a negative edge that frames a stunning view of the Chesapeake Bay and showcases matching copper fire bowls, multiple water features, a pebble sheen interior finish and LED lighting.    

AQUA, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, is a two-time winner of the prestigious Gordon W. Rudd “Best in Show” award and the only pool builder on the Eastern Shore to have ever earned the distinction. AQUA also received a Gold Award in the Residential Concrete category, a Bronze Award in the Lap/Exercise category and a Bronze Award in the Residential Pool Restoration category.  
 
“Being recognized by our industry peers with the “Best in Show” award reflects upon our designers’ and craftsmen’s abilities to create beautiful custom pools and hot tubs,” said Dan Bridges, owner of AQUA. “It was a true honor to win all four awards.”  

Gordon W. Rudd was a pool industry pioneer whose many career accolades include building the White House pool for 
President Gerald Ford. After his passing in 1991, The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, the world’s largest international trade group with more than 4,500 members, created the Best In Show category in Rudd’s honor and presents it annually for the region’s finest designs.
