About Us

The Aquos Pools Family

Harold Tapley & his dad Bob have been building pools since 1963, when he first became an Anthony pools dealer in a small town in central CA. All (4) of Bob’s boys worked summers learning the trades of pool construction from “dad” the hard way.

In 1976 Anthony pools decided to leave Stockton, CA. at that point the Tapley family decided to continue building in the valley area, so Bob & Harold purchased commercial property in Lathrop/French Camp, Ca. a major transportation hub today.

A Great Team

Now striving to build the highest quality pools in the valley, Harold using the last 50 years of experience, has the whole family involved, and now Bob’s grandkids and great-grandkids too!  We are a proud family creating beautiful pools, for great families. #familybusiness

Above all, we are dedicated to providing pools that create family experiences. From our family at Aquos Pools to yours, we guarantee that your Aquos Pools will exceed expectations and ensure you and your family get the “staycation” of a lifetime!

Our Team

Bob Tapley

Dad / Grandpa / Great Grandpa

Patriarch, founder & mentor, Bob was the oldest son of 10 kids with a Christian faith based dad that had very strong work and family values. Bob ran their Arizona desert family farm and dairy for many years, because of his dads poor health, helping to keep it all together when his younger brothers were called to protect our country. Bob started his own family and moved from Phoenix Az. to California in the early 1960’s bringing his bride and four boys, to a small safe town in central Ca. – still sending money home every month to help his parents raise his younger siblings. In 1967 Bob became an exclusive Anthony pools equipment dealer providing the highest quality and hands on pool build experience available at that time in Tulare Ca. for many local farmers and dairymen that he had much in common with. 
In 1976 Phil Anthony of Anthony Pools offered Bob a dealership in Stockton Ca, and it was time to make the move. Bob’s two oldest sons had entered the military, the third son was in college and Harold had graduated High School. Bob and his son Harold purchased commercial property in Lathrop, Ca. and have stayed in the Tri-Valley area providing thousands of families their dream pool. Bob trained Harold and family members along with many employees the skill of swimming pool construction, treating them all like family, helping them not only learn but helping their families financially. Bob was always focused on doing the job right the first time, and treating every employee or customer as a great friend or family.
