What type of warranty is offered on inground gunite pools?
The structure of the pool is warranted to the original buyer for the life of the pool.
Are your pools salt water system compatible?

Our Custom Gunite Pools are compatible with salt water chlorination systems. As for our Above Ground and In Ground Stealth pools, they are not compatible based on Manufacturer Warranties. Because these pools rely on Galvanized Steel for structural integrity, it is probable that salt could prematurely corrode the Galvanized Steel structure.

What is the brown and yellow staining on my pool steps and wall. How do I fix it?
Brown and yellow stains can be attributed to minerals falling out of saturation on to the pool surface and creating a chemical bond. Their are several varieties of stain removers available on the market to use. One of the options is Ascorbic acid based removers. One way to determine if ascorbic acid will work is to take lemon slice and apply it to the affected area by scrubbing the lemon over the stain. If the stain lightens or goes away, you have determined that ascorbic acid based removers will work.

If the stains feel “slimy” , they may be algae that has embedded itself in the pore of the plaster, in which case a heavy shock treatment and the right algaecide added to the pool should remedy the problem.

Do you just install pools, in the Dallas areas? Do you install in the Weatherford area?

We can install Above-ground and Inground Stealth pools anywhere in Texas and Oklahoma.

Do you install in the Fort Worth area?

We install Above-ground and Inground Stealth pools in the Fort Worth area.

How long does it take to build and install an in ground pool?

Typically, from the time the contract is signed to filling the pool with water is 8 weeks. Two of the eight weeks is typically what it takes to get the permits approved. Many variables can either lengthen this period or in some cases shorten the time it takes to construct the pool.

Do you have an above ground pool with a deep end option?
Yes, the Doughboy brand above-ground pool has the option of having up to a 7ft. deep end.
