Originally from Sedley, VA, Brandon's love for the Outer Banks started at an early age when he would explore the dunes surrounding his grandparent's soundfront home. Seeing the growing demand for service professionals, he started Riptide Pool & Spa and made the OBX his permanent home in 2000. Through the years, Brandon has learned the ins-and-outs of pool service -from installs and construction cleans to correcting algae takeovers and hurricane damage. He embraces all aspects of the Outer Banks lifestyle and enjoys sharing his love of the area with visitors year after year.
Two of Brandon's greatest assets in business are his attention to detail and his dependable, dedicated crew who return to help him each season.

Just like any ordinary light bulb, pool lights need to be changed from time to time. The three most common types of lighting systems are: halogen, LED and fiber optic. Halogen lights are the most common, however, these bulbs typically need to be replaced every other season. LED lights are more energy efficient and last longer than halogen. Fiber optic systems, although not as common anymore, are reliable and easy to maintain. There are many options when it comes to pool optics, including color! We are proficient in selling and servicing of all three systems.
A pool heater is a great edition to any Outer Banks pool when you want to extend your rental season. We sell and service both gas and electric units. Our years of experience with pool heaters allow us to find a heater that will best suit your needs. Repair/warranty technicians are on call to handle any maintenance issue should one arise.

Nothing takes more abuse at a rental home than a spa cover! For that reason, it is necessary to replace them periodically. We can provide you with custom spa cover replacements in any shape and color within 7 days. Our team keeps a close eye on typical wear and tear to track when replacements are needed. Any abuse or damage done to a spa cover is immediately reported to the owner and property management.
If you have ever tried to take the cover off your spa by yourself, you know how difficult it can be. Spa lifts make it easy for anyone to single-handedly take off and put back the cover. We sell and install high quality spa lifts, they are an easy and affordable way to get more life out of your spa cover.
Nothing is more important at a rental home than safety. Proper signage to necessary to keep guests safe and protect homeowners from potential liabilities. It is our duty to make sure each home is equipped with current signage in plain view to guests. Other suggested supplies include a pool pole, leaf net and a rescue hook/pole. These items are replaced when necessary at well below retail prices.
