Dont see your question here? Contact us directly.

Do you offer a 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!

Are your pools energy efficient?

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.

How long have you been in business?

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.

Are you a member of the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance?

Yes! The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) is the international trade association representing companies and individuals in the swimming pool, hot tub, and recreational water industries. Members of The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance 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.

Do you have an PHTA CBP on staff?

Yes! We have a Certified Building Professional from the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA). They are 1 of less than 250 CBP’s in the entire world.
