Island Pool Services purchased Bayside Pool Company on July 29, 2021.
“When I knew it was time to sell, I set out to find another locally owned pool cleaning business with owners who value integrity and customer service,” said Drew Hartell, the former owner of Bayside Pool. “All roads lead to Island Pool Services—a company with a long track record of happy customers and an exceptional commitment to a job done well.”
“I’m excited to welcome the former Bayside Pool Company customers to our family,” said Troy Taylor, owner of Island Pool Services. “Our mission is to help our customers enjoy their pools, and we offer many services and contract options to do just that.”
Troy co-founded Island Pools Services in 2009 when he was working as a Norfolk firefighter and looking for ways to someday afford his baby daughter’s college tuition. Troy has since retired from the fire department to focus full-time on growing Island Pool Services, for which he is now the sole owner. Today, Island Pool Services has 10 employees and the company is a member of The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals, the leading pool and spa association.
