Industry-leading “Endurance Lifetime Warranty”

When you build a pool with Richard’s, we highly recommend getting our industry-leading “Endurance Lifetime Warranty.” Our Endurance Lifetime Warranty covers the things that most other pool builders ignore after your pool has been completed. And unlike most builders, our warranty is transferable!

Low Maintenance, Energy Efficient Pool Designs

From our oversized plumbing and filters to our energy-efficient equipment and our self-cleaning pool systems, a pool from Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions costs less to own and takes less time and energy to maintain.

Super Spa

Our unique “Super Spa” is loaded with special features including larger size, slope walls, curved benches, recessed jet fittings, and much more, including a floor massage for you’re for aching feet.


The #1 biggest problem with most pool builders is that they go out of business. And when they do, your pool has no warranty. Now at 30 years strong, Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions is one of only seven pool builders in the Houston area that’s been around that long.


It’s one thing to say you build a great pool. It’s quite another to have other experts from around the industry compare your pools to others, and hand the award to you. We’ve won more than a dozen industry awards for our designs and craftsmanship.


We keep a Certified Building Professional on staff from the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP). One of less than 250 CBP’s in the entire world.

Outstanding A+ record with the Better Business Bureau

Not only have we maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, but we’re also one of those rare and lucky recipients to twice receive the exclusive BBB Pinnacle Award. And not just once, but twice! We’re also members in good standing with his the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals, and the Greater Houston Builders Association. Our technicians are factory trained and approved for warranty repair on all the major brands.

Our showrooms:

Our showrooms offer a “Fully Interactive Experience”! We completely renovated the pool showroom with a new sleek design, amazing water features like a flameless fire bowl, solar outdoor shower, beautiful glass waterline tiles and trendy materials on display for clients to see in person. We also added LED TVs to the showrooms to showcase high-quality projects and products we build. You can also experience a “hands-on” digital consultation with our touch-screen computer in our showroom.  Best Spring TX pool builders for a reason!

Clients can look up product demos and design their dream backyard digitally on our touch-screen computer. We offer three “State of the Art” design presentation rooms to cater to every client’s budget. We have an “Executive Room” which is exclusively for clients spending more than $100K on their project. This room offers unique high-end samples on display and also has a private bar complete with snacks and complimentary beer and wine and even occasional catered meals for the client to enjoy. All of our design presentation rooms have a private bar with complimentary snacks and have SmartTVs to present your 3D backyard design.

About the owner – JR Richard

In 1987, I started Richard’s with every penny that I had saved. My only thought was to work hard, carry the best products, and always do right for my customers. I learned these principles from my father who inspired me to develop the “Do Right” Philosophy: “Do Right” Products, “Do Right” Prices, and “Do Right” Services.

Today, Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions still uses these principles, and boasts over 7,000 satisfied customers. My wife, Julie, and I are active full-time in the business. And our children get involved once in awhile too, such as their role in a recent television commercial.

We must be doing something right, because referrals from our satisfied customers have helped us become one of the top pool builders in the greater Houston area. And now our business is debt-free, profitable and growing.

The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals

Association of Pool & Spa Professionals Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions is a member of The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP). APSP is the international trade association representing companies and individuals in the swimming pool, hot tub, and recreational water industries. Members of The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals adhere to a code of ethics in business and technical practices and share a strong commitment to the safe, healthful, and enjoyable use of industry products.
