our story

As a husband and wife team, we opened Pool Stop in 2003 after recognizing the growing number of swimming pools in Rockwall, TX. Back then, we started as a small swimming pool service company, but have since grown into the largest swimming pool construction company in the area. Our 3 children have all been raised right here in Rockwall, TX and now they all play important roles in the family business. We love this community and we love building beautiful pools in our neighbor’s backyards!

Pool stop installed an in ground pool for us and was very professional about it and answered all our questions and concerns. Our project manager Jeremy kept us informed of when everything was going to be done. He answered every question I had. Everyone at Pool Stop is professional and polite and did an awesome job on our swimming pool. We would definitely recommend pool stop to anyone wanting a in ground swimming pool.

My family has used Pool Stop for decades since we first had our pool built. We've used other pool supply/repair places in a pinch but nothing compares to Pool Stop for service and quality.
New Pool Owner
Pool Stop was top notch from start to finish. Tom, our design consultant took the time to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and was very patient. Victor, our project manager, was awesome. He was constantly on site making sure everything was running smoothly. Victor was very quick to respond to all our questions and concerns, which was all the time! Every company could take a page out of Pool Stops book on how to operate a business. This was one of the best experiences with a contractor we’ve ever had. Two thumbs up Pool Stop!!
New Pool Owner
Very happy with the pool. It was just finished and they did it in a timely manner, very professional and had great clean up. I would recommend anyone looking to get a pool spend time with Poolstop to see how fair the price is and know that there are some very satisfied customers
