Our Story

McBurney Pools & Spas was formed in 1980 and has been operating out of Burnside Industrial Park since 1992. They started with 1100 sq/ft. and have since moved twice to accommodate their ever expanding product lines and increasing customer base. Their location now has a 5000 sq/ft. showroom, which has 10-14 hot tubs on display and two working demos. They can accommodate up to 25 hot tubs in the warehouse with plenty of room for chemicals and accessories with around 5500 sq/ft.

McBurney Pools & Spas loves to participate in charity and community events. They sponsor several golf tournaments for groups such as MADD, Sunshine Kids and the RCMP. They've raised money for NS Food Bank using "Stuff-a-Tub" promotions filling hot tubs with food donations they had placed in locations around the HRM area. They also provided a hot tub to the 2011 FIVB World Junior Beach Volleyball Championship in downtown Halifax.
