Not all prospective pool buyers can have an international award-winning pool in their backyard; however, all prospective pool buyers have for Euro Pools a true independent evaluation by top industry experts of our designs and quality of workmanship
Here are some suggestions to help you choose the right builder.
- Certified Building Professional®
Regardless of pool budget, any pool buyer should only contract a CBP Certified Building Professional® which is the highest level of certification by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP).
The CBP Certified Building Professional® credential is awarded to builders who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge in pool and spa construction by successfully passing a rigorous standardized written examination and meeting ongoing continuing education requirements by APSP. This credential is also referred to as APSP-certified builder.
"Our members build the most beautiful pools and spas in the world," says Bill Weber, President and CEO of APSP. "When consumers work with an APSP-certified builder, they can rest assured that the beauty is not just skin deep. Their pool and spa will be built using the most current standards and technology, and built to last."
There are estimated to be more than 30,000 pool builders in the United States. Yet at last check, there were less than 300 APSP Certified Building Professionals® in the world. Euro Pools has been a Certified Building Professional® since January 2008.
Winning any pool competition makes an award-winning pool company. However, in pursuit of perfection Euro Pools has been successfully judged against top pool builders from all over the world. Latest Euro Pools was recognized in the 2008 International Award of Excellence®, as well as and the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Global AquaTekture Visionary Award® (GAVA) programs. GAVA is designed to recognize the most innovative concepts, designs, materials and applications of water-inspired environments from across the globe.
- Best Value
Euro Pools creates value for the home owner in several ways.
We create value on a daily basis on your electricity bill. Due to our design, pumps, pump sizing and lighting options, a Euro pool is a low energy pool.
Furthermore, nobody offers better value for your money than Euro Pools, when aspects like standard features, warranty and home resale value are considered. Due to the added value a Euro pool gives to any home, realtors will often highlight the fact in listings and showings when a home has a Euro pool.
Price isn’t everything, but at Euro Pools we recognize that every homeowner wants to get the most for each and every dollar spent. That’s why we came up with our “Best Value - A BID Better™ concept.
Our goal is to be “The only choice for a Quality Pool at a Fair Price™. Thanks to a high number of residential pools and commercial pool projects, plus a combination of low overhead and dedication to cost-effective procurement, we have lower purchasing pricing than most other pool builders. So while other builders may try to undercut us and “win you over with a lower price, they’ll usually have to cut on quality or features (or both) to beat our values.
McAllen's largest pool builder
Euro Pools’ goal is not to build as many pools as possible. In fact, there are many projects we choose not to pursue due to location or workload. But we do recognize that “being the largest means we can offer pool buyers the latest and best options at a fair price.
Part of our volume comes from the strong reputation we’ve earned in the valley. As a result, Euro Pools has been contracted to build impressive pools inside of Mexico.
- 99% Customer Satisfaction; 90% of business is referrals or repeat
Euro Pools has come to where it is today as a result of the best promotion there is: Word of mouth! Over 90% referrals/repeat business is unheard of, and it’s something we’re very proud of. (Many pool builders have 20% or less!) Our goal is to make every customer satisfied. We want to do the very best we can, because we know that is how we get new business. That’s why we take our time to guide the homeowner through the process, and help them make the right decisions and selections for their home and family.

Euro Pools builds each pool to each family’s needs. This begins with a professional swimming pool design that complements your yard and lifestyle. We will design and present our ideas in 3D pictures and computer animations.
Once the basic design is finalized, other options may be added, such as the Quickclean automatic in-floor cleaning system, the Pool Automation system, and/or the type of water you and your family want to swim in. For example, Euro Pools offers “freshwater pools, “saltwater pools and traditional “chlorine pools. Not one water type is ideal for every situation.
We also do spas, water features, fire effects, automated safety covers, in-floor cleaning systems, and impressive projects with All-Tile interiors. Few homeowners know exactly what they want when they start this process, so keep your options open. If you go with a builder like Euro Pools, you’ll be working with someone who is capable of offering all options professionally at a fair price.
No other builder in the Valley can match the combined specifications of a Euro pool. One example is our concrete shell, which is built by using extra-strong and dense “7 sack concrete. We combine this with ½ rebar (reinforcing steel) and our industry-leading thickness in walls and floor. We use 30% more concrete than other leading pool builders. This added quality also means added safety. For example, our use of jumbo size piping as well as unblockable safety drains results in a pool of unsurpassed strength, quality and safety.
Comprehensive limited Warranty
In an ideal world, nothing ever goes wrong. But in a human world, things can happen. When it does, you want your builder addressing the problem quickly. Euro Pools has the best limited warranty in the Valley. To the original owner Euro Pools offers lifelong warranty on the concrete shell and typically 3 years extended warranty on tile, plaster and equipment. This includes materials and labor. We are also the only pool builder offering lifelong manufacturer’s warranty on in-floor cleaning system on both cleaning nozzles and control module. For more details on our warrantees and limitations, please give us a call at 956.668.POOL (7665).
One final comment - In your decision making process, keep in mind that many pool builders make many promises when they want to sell you something. But if and when you may need assistance, not all will come through. Euro Pools will be there for you.
