At Doyle Pools, we’re big on dreams, and doing what it takes to achieve them.


The story starts with the president and founder, Pat Doyle when he was only 15.  Sure, the company was not named yet or even a thought yet for that matter.  That would not happen for 16 years later.  But at that time, he knew that he was fascinated by pools.


Looking back, there was always something special about them and the lasting memories they instill.  They’re a luxury item that every family deserves.


So, when entering the industry, Pat started in the warehouse, stocking shelves, and completing the most menial tasks.  But that didn’t last long.  Soon he was in management, then moving on to service and construction.


After 16 years of working for someone else Pat decided that it was time to go out on his own, make it or break it.  Pat had decided that he was going to place a simple classified add and the hope was just to get enough work to pay his bills for the month and only work by himself without employees.  Little did he know that the demand for his service was far greater than he anticipated.  He grew rapidly completing work as far away as Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands.


Today Pat and his team are selective about the projects they will do.  Its not about the size of the project or the cost of the project, its more about doing something different and having fun with everyone involved.  Its not work, when you love what you do.

Mad Designer

Before he was the Mad Designer, he was just curious…Of all his fascinations, water was the substance that gave him the most goosebumps. And so, a little aquamaniac set sail on a trip around the world to see every single water body there was.Unfortunately, a band of “uncreatives” caught wind of his mission and fought tooth and nail to stop him. Forlorn at the failure of his expedition, yet driven by his boundless curiosity, he decided to look for water outside Earth. So he went to space, but he didn’t have to go too far. A crater on the moon caught his attention. He touched down and began to study it wholeheartedly believing that long ago, there must have been water in it. Although he didn’t find his adored water, he fell in love with the moon because there, he had before him an entire heavenly body to explore unrestricted. He could finally let his eccentricities lose, and thus the Mad Designer was born. Soon, he began to think up and create craters of his own, but alas, there was no water to fill them with. After centuries of covering the moon with empty craters, the man in the moon was finally ready to go back home. The Mad Designer returned back to earth with one goal in mind – to give his creativity full expression – and nothing could stop him this time. Thankfully, he was received by a world that was far more open and welcoming to creativity and originality. He found that he could express himself more than ever before. And so, the Mad Designer now lives his dreams as the lead designer for Doyle Pools – employing his art to help others maximize their spaces on planet Earth and achieve the homes of their dreams. Although the Mad Designer has no permanent residence of his own, the world is his home. Having been on the moon for so long, he attests to the truth of the platitude, “There’s no place like home.” He can’t get enough of Earth, and he’s always on the move, making observations and acquiring insight to help him create even madder designs in his head. And he has fashioned in his van the perfect working atmosphere where he can use his computers to transform his ideas into 3-D graphic perspectives. Every week, The Mad Designer drives to a new water body from which he draws fresh inspiration. When he isn’t creating art, he can be found fishing at his newfound pool of water.
