Clearwater Spas is locally owned and operated!

Don Adams started out as an electrician/instrumentation technician at the DuPont Experimental Station. After working there for fifteen years, Don Adams needed someone to service his old pre-owned wooden hot tub. But he couldn’t find anyone. So, Don acquired his Certified Pool/Spa Operators credentials and founded Bubble Works Hot Tub and Spa Co in 1985.

In 1991 Bubble Works acquired Clearwater Spas established in Newark, Delaware, in 1985. That’s when he left DuPont went into business full time. The company soon enjoyed an excellent reputation for service. Industry awards followed, including two Aqua 100 awards. As Adams says, “Those were hard to come by, encompassing the top 100 Pool and Spa Retailers in the country.” Don realized a simple business principle was at work here, which was to do the right thing for your customers.

Clearwater Spas recently won the 2014 national award for Retail Excellence in “Customer Satisfaction” from one of the largest hot tub manufacturers in the country.

Don has served on Advisory Boards for 3 different hot tub manufacturers, and he served on the National Hot Tub Council for three years.

The company will celebrate its 30th anniversary this summer and emerges stronger than ever having survived tough times in their industry.

Adams believes a hot tub is a good investment in wellness and relaxation. They provide excellent benefits from immersion. The heat, buoyancy and massage provide relief for sore muscles as well as a host of other ailments. “A hot tub can provide a better night’s sleep, an intimate get-a-way, as well as an opportunity for family time with no distractions from a good old fashion conversation,” says Adams.

He has always said, “If you think of your hot tub as an investment, think of Clearwater Spas as your broker. We have your best interest at heart.”

A Delaware native, Don currently resides in Newark with his wife, Sylvia, and his son, Seth. On a good day off in the summer, Don is known to Jet Ski on the Chesapeake Bay to St. Michaels, Maryland, and back for a crab cake sandwich and a day of adventure.
