    Houston pool installer

    Woo-hoo, first post!

    I'm currently getting bids from viking and trilogy pool installs, but want to look at leisure as well. Can anyone recommend a houston area installer?

    Thanks

    Mod note: He is looking at fiberglass pools just an FYI

    What Mark said - often builders from one area dont go to another area - the driving time is often not worth the hassle for them. I'm also guessing that good builders have sufficient business in their own areas.

    Re: Houston pool installer

    +1 on the above. I tried lots of PBs before I found one that built inside the loop. However, it seems you are looking at a vinyl pool so that might be different. I don't recall any Houston vinyl pool build threads.

    Oops I misread. You are looking at a fiberglass pool, right?

    Thanks everyone. We are in the lake houston area and mainly looking at fiberglass. So far I have install quotes from Aqua pools and American fiberglass. They were both within 2k of each other.

    So we found a design made by Trilogy pools that we really like, supposedly its Latham pools top of the line product.

    Re: Houston pool installer

    Generally Fiberglass pools have exclusive distributors with territories.

    So look up the website of the pool manufacturer whose design you like and that will give you your local distributor. So for Trilogy your dealer is (assuming Harris County):


    Aquamarine Pools of Houston
    25730 1-45 N.
    Spring, TX 77386
    United States
    phone: (800) 432-8994

    mark@aquapools.com, donnaaquamarine@aol.com
    The Aqua Group Fiberglass Pools Spas - Austin, Dallas, Houston, and Surrounding Areas in Texas!

    Once you get some bids for pools you like post them on here and we can critique them. PM me and I can find some fiberglass folks to do that for you.
