    One more from the Lone Star State :)

    Hello!

    Was researching about building a swimming pool and found this wonderful website. I am in Katy, TX and just started my research phase.

    If you have a recommendation on pool builder, please let me know. Thanks!

    I'm down in Katy often for horse shows. We Texans tend to invite ourselves to other people's pool builds frequently. Welcome and this is a great site for research - Karen
