Swimming Pool Builders San Antonio

San Antonio Swimming Pool Builders

A good friend of mine over at Pool Deck Repair San Antonio, Benny Ortiz can really create some incredible looking pools.

The guy has been at it for 24 years.

People make things look easy that have been doing it for a long time.

To the outsider looking in we all can very easily say

How did they get so good?

The truth of it is consistency and drive.

We all know results don’t come overnight. We want to be fit, drive the fast car, be debt free, live the good life but all these things take consistent hard work.

There is no way around it.

I see a lot of San Antonio swimming pool builders not only here in Texas but all over the country going to business seminars and pool contractors conventions.

These people are fired up about what they do.

Hustle Is Everything

That is what Gary Vaynerchuk says anyway and I tend to believe that as truth.

It doesn’t matter if you are a swimming pool expert or a world-class arborist like those at

You have to be fired up about what you are doing or you are just going to be average.

We don’t get another time around in this life (that we know of that is).

There is no time for regret.

What you want to do must be worked at and completed now.

There are far too many who live regret as it is and we have to live life without holding anything back.

It doesn’t matter if you are san antonio swimming pool builder, tree trimming expert, world-class athlete or school teacher, find what makes you alive and work toward that goal.

How many people do you know working for someone else’s goals and dreams?

Someone punching the time clock on a daily basis working for a paycheck that only arrives every two weeks.

This is not the way to live.

Key Aspects Of A Winning San Antonio Swimming Pool

  1. Affordability – No sense in breaking the bank right? That being said, don’t expect to think that a cheap swimming pool installation means you won’t have to deal with maintenance issues.

Be willing to spend the little extra in order to get a world-class pool that you won’t have to keep calling the repair guy to come fix.

2. Dependable Contractor – Benny at Pool Deck Repair San Antonio is one of the top swimming pool contractors in the state of Texas who I highly recommend. He can be reached at 210-529-8889 if interested.

3. Ethical. Be wary of any swimming pool contractor who just wants to take your money and not be willing to provide any form of value. Always look at the way they handle themselves, listen to your concerns. Do they talk more then they listen?

Feel free to get in contact with us if you have any further questions. Hopefully this short post was helpful and in some way motivating.

We all have enough negativity we are being fed on a daily basis via our media.

Custom Inground Swimming Pools

Custom Inground Swimming Pools

I am a huge fan of inground swimming pools. There are obviously some considerations to make when considering calling upon an expert pool builder.

One of the two make considerations I make when considering hiring a professional is the overall costs of ownership associated with my future pool.

The second is the initial cost of the project. How much is this going to cost me or if I am working with a client the same questions hold true.

We all don’t want to break the bank when it comes to having an inground swimming pool put in for our family. It has to be built right. The swimming pool contractor has to have done their due diligence and has an idea of what they are doing and the overall quote has to be right on.

There are so many factors that go into a world-class pool from design, ensuring the plumbing aspect of the pool is in place with no leaks, clogs to maintenance, cracks and repairs.

What types of Inground Pools are there?

It all depends on what you are looking at. The three big ones are Concrete, Vinyl liner and fiberglass inground swimming pools.

If you are looking at fiberglass pools most swimming pool contractors offer specific packages for their customers. They are as follows:

  1. Turn-Key Installation
  2. Assisted Installation
  3. Self-Installation
  4. Basic Installation

My friend Chris over at who chose to do a self-installation, had the pool shell delivered to his home and he took care of the rest.

Obviously, his background is in concrete and paving so at least he had some background in it. This isn’t always the case for all customers.

You can save upwards of $10,000 by going this route but also be wary of the fact that you will be doing all the work and you had best have similar experience as Chris has if you choose to go this route.

My personal pick was to have a fiberglass pool installed at my home.

Fiberglass are simply more efficient (in my opinion). It prevents algae from growing in your pool (who wants all that mess right?) You don’t have to deal with as much chemical usage and less time spent keeping the maintenance up on the pool.

The repair expenses are also lower on a fiberglass pool. My personal pick? Go fiberglass. It is just a smarter choice. Again, it all depends on the individual. If you want to save money, have less of a headache dealing with continual maintenance issues over the years going with the fiberglass option is the way to go.

If you go with the self-installation option just go in with a lot of confidence that you can get it done. You don’t necessarily have to have a background in concrete to install a pool but you had best have a great deal of enthusiasm and patience.

Let’s be honest if it was easy everyone would do it themselves. Smart people have those that know how to get the job quickly and efficiently do the job for them so they can go about their busy schedule and know the job will get done.

There are various types of swimming pools that can be built. In ground and fiberglass pools are still my favorite and #1 pick

The love for pools and pool repair quickly turned into an obsession and the rest is history.

You can check out his site at One of the coolest things they do is 3-D pool design. Benny’s wife, Argentina, uses a software which can show you how your pool will look after Benny is done with it.
