Texoma Country Pools and Spas Spas has been a swimming pool builder in the Texoma area for over 13 years.

We take all the work out of building your custom inground pool.

We will come out to your home, measure your backyard, assess the grades and elevations and begin to “shape” the custom design of your new pool. Among the things we’ll discuss with you are:

  • The size and shape of your new pool and spa
  • The pool depth, sport bottom or diving pool
  • The best location for maximum sun, minimum wind, optimal view, best look, maximum privacy and of course, the best escape and tranquility
  • The pool’s orientation to your home, the windows, and doors, access to the pool, integrating the design to compliment your home
  • The color and style of the pool’s interior finish. We offer the latest in quartz and pebble finishes
  • The full range of tile, coping and decking choices
  • The selection of features including waterfalls, multi-color lighting, loveseats, a tanning shelf, beach entry, raised walls, planters and outdoor kitchens.
  • The use of time and energy-saving features like remote controls, automatic cleaners, energy-efficient pumps, saltwater systems, and energy-efficient LED lighting.
  • Slides, diving boards, and covers
  • Heating equipment, gas heaters, electric heat pumps, solar covers and systems
  • Landscaping and fencing

We will offer you no pool shapes or cookie-cutter examples here, like other swimming pool builders, that’s because we custom build your gunite swimming pool to fit your home and you.

Every pool is custom. Every pool is unique.

So, whether you like the classic Geometric shape of a rectangular pool with Grecian Ends, or a lazy natural-flowing Lagoon with flagstone and rock coping, or a magnificent magazine-cover free-form work of art, we will design and build it just for you.

Then, when we’ve all arrived at the perfect design, Texoma Country Pools and Spas will “construct” it all on our 3d computer software, Pool Studio, and bring you an animated, full-color, landscaped, three-dimensional image of your house, your landscaping (existing and new) and your beautiful new pool, just the way it will look when we are all done.

That way, you make the final decision on the design, because after all, it belongs to you!

Through it all, we’ll consider your budget and use our expertise to deliver the best design for your investment dollar. We’ll even help with the financing.

Making Pool Building Easy

Texoma Country Pools and Spas takes the legwork, out of building a custom gunite swimming pool.

We’ll make sure that your pool building project is built in strict adherence to all local building codes and we’ll do the legwork of submitting our plans to the local authorities for review and approval.

We’ll obtain all the necessary permits. We’ll have the locations of any gas, cable, water, sewer, electrical and telephone lines marked prior to excavation.

Starting Your Custom In ground Gunite Swimming Pool Build

Our excavation specialists will carefully follow the contract and engineering plan designed by you and Texoma Country Pools and Spas, and they’ll plot out the location, shape, size, and elevation of your custom inground gunite swimming pool in your backyard for you to see.

At this Step, before the first bit of earth is unturned, you’ll enjoy your first view of how your custom gunite pool will look, and of course, you’ll have the opportunity to review the layout and give it your personal approval.

Our excavation specialists are experts in pool work.

In fact, it is the only work they do, day in and day out.

And, after constructing thousands of excavations for swimming pools in Texoma, there are no contingencies for which they’re not very well and expertly prepared.

In this step, they’ll remove the necessary soil to form the general shape of your pool and spa.

Since mechanical earthmovers can never achieve the Texoma Country Pools and Spas perfection, our teams will hand-contour the swimming pool’s walls and floor according to our plans.

The swimming pool shape will now be easy to see.

Also in this phase, we will be “Tying” steel across the bottom and sides of your new pool is both an art form and a science.

It’s a science of engineering where Texoma Country Pools and Spas go the extra step of using thicker steel than most pool builder’s use.

That assures strength.

It’s an art where Texoma Country Pools and Spas’ craftsmen carefully install and lace the steel bars together with even more steel ties, and reinforce the steel bars closer together.

Then, Texoma Country Pools and Spas will add even more steel in the deep end, and at all the stress points. We do all of this to ensure a solid, long-lasting construction with a strength that is second to none.
