I have been working with these folks from the day they opened in Bullard. They have helped this first-time pool owner navigate the sometimes complicated waters of owning an older pool. They are always helpful and informative with a smile on their faces and a “Hello, Mrs. Frisby”. Jarred, Becky and Paul are the best!

We could not be more pleased with our beautiful spa! We were greeted with a smile and our salesperson, Rebecca Wilson, was knowledgeable and patient. Michael and his “crew” delivered our spa and installed it with efficiency and patiently answered our questions and explained how to treat the water . We were assured that they will be “there for us” after the sale. And we believe them!

We would recommend this business to anyone interested in a spa or pool!

They are always very helpful and friendly. We used them when I was a kid and I continue to use them today with my own pool…they always greet you and ask if you need help. You are never left wondering about the store not knowing what you are looking for. They are very kid friendly as well…i can’t say enough nice things about them or the store..

We have been a customer since 2002 when TVP built our pool. We have always been treated with respect and honesty about our pool needs. The staff is great to work with throughout the pool building stages and the maintenance after the build. Our family has enjoyed our pool for the last 15 years.

If you have a pool and you want professional knowledge/service, this is the place to go!!! The “other place” is only 3 miles from my house, but I’ll drive the extra miles for the professionalism I get from Trinity Valley Pools! Glad I am making “the switch” to these guys!

Looking forward to doing business with them for years to come!

Building a pool not only provides years of fun and good health for family and friends, it is an investment in your property. Therefore, choosing the right pool builder is so very important. After visiting with the folks at Trinity Valley in Palestine, talking with friends, and actually visiting completed pools, the choice was clear! This is an amazing company with an amazing staff! From the design phase with Randy, to the construction and start-up phase with Jerry, Brandon, Michael and Josh; we were delighted with the professional yet personnel service, as well as the expertise and courtesy of the sub-contractors.

Of course, being “new” pool owners, we had many questions after the sale, and quickly discovered that their responses were prompt! Answers to any questions are just a phone call away (to any one of the techs), and the store employees are extremely knowledgeable and gracious as well.

If you are considering investing in something that will provide a lifetime of fun for your family, as well as add beauty and value to your property, I highly recommend Trinity Valley Pools. Their expertise, friendly service, and most importantly 26 years in business, has left us feeling secure in our investment, and looking forward to many years of good health and fun in the sun!

Thanks again to owner Paul Higginbotham and Trinity Valley Pools!

Jeffrey Mayhall
Worked with Trinity Valley Pools to replace the liner in my pool because it was about to fall in as old as it was.

I looked around and got a couple of quotes and I decided to go with Trinity Valley Pools because they gave the best warranty and best price.

When we got started with the replacement of the pool liner everything went quickly and we ran into a few issues with the project and the installer called me to let me know what was going on and told me everything I needed to know before he went forward. Installer communicated very well with me and kept me informed on everything.

I would recommend using Trinity Valley Pools to replace a liner and to do any work needed on your pool.

Trinity Valley Pools built our pool in 2002, so we have done business with Paul and his staff for 15 years. We have always been treated friendly and respectfully the entire time. The building of the pool was a great experience and the little changes they recommended have been thoroughly enjoyed.

Randy and Debbie J.

I love this company. We have used them for years and years. My mom did as a kid and I do now with my own pool. They are always very helpful and make sure they explain everything to you in detail. You are never left wondering what to do. I will continue to use them for as long as I have a pool.. You can go in as much or as little as needed and you are always greeted with a smile and helpful hand. I can’t say enough good things about this company or the employees.. love love love!!!!

Crystal C.

Trinity Valley Pools went above and beyond on our new pool/spa construction. Their sales department led us through every step of the process. We are so pleased with our project!

Blanton F.

This is our SECOND time to use Trinity Valley to construct our pool and my husband and I could not be more pleased ! They have three professional project managers (Randy, Jerry, Michael) specializing in each phase of construction. Each are extremely professional, knowledgeable and oversaw the construction process as if it were their own pool!
The Trinity Valley sub contractors were also very professional and respectful of our home/property. They did an outstanding job with their task at hand !
Again we could not be more pleased with Trinity Valley Pools!
Thumbs up to the owners Mr. Paul & Adrian for building up and running such a good, honest & trustworthy company ! IT SHOWS!! We are proud to be your consumer ! Keep shining Jesus’ light Paul!

Salena Rozell

We absolutely love our pool. Thank you all SO much! You are all great to work with!! Special thanks to Randy, Jerry and crew!

Debbie Wacha

We found dealing with everyone from Trinity Valley Pools to be a joy! Starting with our initial contact with Paul, to our design phase with Randy, we arrived at a design that met our desires and needs very quickly and efficiently.

The early construction phase was a pleasure thanks to Jerry’s attention to detail and decades of experience. Jerry handled the difficult scheduling job regardless of the weather better than we imagined it could be done. Later in the construction phase, Michael and Josh handled everything efficiently and professionally. All these people were very accessible and responded to our questions quickly and cordially. They took care to respond even on Sunday’s! The crews that did the excavation, Gunite, plumbing, plaster, electrical and equipment setup were on time, fast, superb at their work and friendly.

We are now swimming in our new in-ground pool and loving it. The craftsmanship is exceptional. We highly recommend Trinity Valley Pools.

Elizabeth Ann Chapman

Everyone of your employees are very skilled, efficient and hard working. They’re experience shows. Their professionalism has surpassed all expectations and passed experiences! Other pool and construction company’s should use your business as a model!

We think you have built a world class pool company, keep having fun!!

When we decided to build our home, having a pool was at the top of our list. We asked around and after numerous people including our builder and banker referred and raved about Trinity Valley, we knew that was the best choice. We didn’t even waste any time
talking to other pool companies. When we sat down with Creig and told him what we wanted in our pool, it took him no time to design the PERFECT pool for us! It went beyond our expectations and was one of the easiest processes in building our home. He helped us pick out every detail and we would not change a thing! Once the building process began we were informed with every step along the way and never had a concern about anything.

Since we moved in and have been maintaining the pool ourselves, Michael has been very patient with us and is there to answer any questions or comes over to show us how to do things. The staff in the Tyler store have also been very helpful and informative every time we bring a water sample in. We feel very confident that we made the best decision for our pool and would recommend Trinity Valley to everyone! We are very excited to spend our first summer enjoying our pool!

Thank you Trinity Valley!

The Hudson Family

WOW!!  We are so impressed with Trinity Valley Pools. We knew what we wanted, had a tight budget and very tight timeline to get it done. The staff at Trinity Valley Pools actually listened, were sensitive to our needs and made it happen!!  The pool is gorgeous.  Trinity Valley was very meticulous about the quality of their work and jumped right in to make everything perfect.  The pool was finished just in time for our 7 grandkids to spend a week swimming.  It was the highlight of their week.

We would highly recommend Trinity Valley Pools to anyone thinking about building a pool.  Our son-in-law builds expensive pools (in another part of the state) and he was familiar with some of the sub-contractors Trinity Valley Pools used.  He said they were top quality in the industry and he also approved of the equipment they installed.  Again, top quality at a very fair price.  

This was not our first pool to build but it was definitely the BEST! Thank you Trinity Valley Pools for making our pool dream come true.  

Larry & Kathleen Stanford

Our experience with Trinity Valley Pools started in February 2015. We had spoken to several different pool companies and decided to go with Trinity Valley pools to build our pool because of their reputation. I wanted to go with a company that had years of experience and who were going to build us a quality pool. Our designer, Creig Prince designed us the exact pool we wanted. Unfortunately, Spring 2015 was recorded as the wettest spring since 1957, so we had many set backs on timing and getting things done. However, I do not blame Trinity Valley pools because they can not predict or change the weather.

The only draw back I had was our pool was finished a month after scheduled. We really appreciate all the hard work put into our pool. We ran into a lot of issues with a water table that came up to three feet, which made for a huge mess; however, I was proud that our foreman (Jerry) and crew were experienced with this type of “mess”. Michael was very informative and helpful to get it completed and teach us how everything operatesEvery time I come into the store I’m always greeted with kindness and respect. Its always been my dream to have a pool and Trinity Valley Pools made my dream come true. My children are quickly learning to swim and have already mastered the slide. We will enjoy our outdoor paradise and make many memories for years to come.

Thank you very much Trinity Valley Pools

Shana & Cory Caldwell

Ashley & I want to say thank you for the great job on our poolWe are very pleased with the end product and look forward to using it this summer and many in the future.

Randy did a great job in the design. We came to your shop with a basic idea of what we thought we wanted.  Randy gave us his undivided attention and helped bring our idea to life. Randy offered great suggestions relating to what we might want and might not want in our pool He was easy going and never put pressure on us to upgrade to something we did not want or need.  Randy was quick to respond to our questions and made changes to the design over the next few weeks as we changed our minds. The end design was great.

Our project manager was Michael. Michael became the answers guyDuring the construction phase he was never more than a short phone call away. He was on site most of the time and did a great job of communicating with us during the construction. Michael made a late evening stop at our house so that our pool would be ready for a party we had scheduled the next evening. He certainly did not have to make the late house call and it certainly did not go without notice.  Michael does a great job of making the customer the top priority.

Trinity Pools did a great job. We felt important and appreciated from the first day we walked into your shop. Thank you for a job well done and we look forward to doing business with you for many years into the future.

Josh and Ashley Liles

The dream of having an in ground pool has always been in the back of my mind, not necessarily in my husbands though!

Mid year 2014 we started asking our friends about their pool experience.  In November we sought out a couple of pool/spa businesses.  Our minds were made up after talking with the folks at Trinity Valley Pools. Their expertise was incomparable to the rest. We have never looked back and were totally pleased with the entire process. I was most impressed with the design team. We were given options that neither of us had considered. Where I am all about the physical characteristics of the pool, my husband concentrated on the logistics ie maintenance and care, chemical balance, etc. We were given a thorough schooling on the equipment and pool care  once the pool was filled.  Afterwards, the teaching continued. We were encouraged to call Paul everyday with our water readings. He would tell us exactly what to do and in no time at all our water was crystal clear.  By the way, we went with the Stone Scapes mini pebble finish. We would highly recommend the upgrade – it’s awesome and so worth the extra expense.

Although my husband was not on board at the beginning he is equally as happy as I am with the finished results.  The swimming season is just beginning and we are estatic to start enjoying the great outdoors with our friends and family.

Another happy customer…

Gary and Laurel LaRue

Professional and Courteous….

This is how we would describe every single employee at Trinity Valley Pools.
Every step of the process went exactly as they quoted; the quality of the workmanship is excellent.
The customer service, and follow up after the project was completed, has been exceptional.
We would highly recommend Trinity Valley Pools to anyone looking to build a pool in East Texas.
We really cannot express how pleased we are with the entire experience.
They have earned our trust and will continue to receive our business from now on.

Great job Team Trinity Valley Pools!

James and Sheila MacBride

After a few years of thinking about installing a pool we finally decided this year. We looked at several builders as far away as Dallas. I like what I saw on some of your pools that you installed and talking with some of your customers we decided to go with Trinity Valley Pools. The quality exceeded our expectations. We are so very pleased with our pool. Planning with Randy and watching Jerry build it and Professor of Pool School Josh, the gals in the Palestine and Bullard store has made the whole experience a pleasurable one.

Jana and David Bateman

In the early part of spring, my husband and I decided to put in a pool in our backyard. After much thought and numerous phone calls to various installers, we decided on Trinity Valley Pools. From the moment we met General Manager, we could tell he was genuinely listening to our concerns and expectations of what we were looking for in an in-ground pool, the General Manager was very patient with us through the process and when Jerry came on board at the time of construction, he too, was very patient, accommodating, and worked very hard to make sure we were pleased with the end result.

Tony has been very helpful, as well in teaching us how to maintain the pool now that it is installed. We feel at ease in the fact that if we have a question, we can call Tony and he will work with us through this initial learning process.

We are so happy with the quality of work, and without reservation, would recommend Trinity Valley Pools to anyone in the future!

Misty Wilmeth

While thinking we were ready to build a pool 3 years ago, we had Paul and three more contractors come Out for bids. We instantly liked Paul and his knowledge of pool building. We decided to do a house addition and put the pool on the back burner. So, when the time came at the beginning of this year that we were ready to build our pool, we only called Paul back to our house, not anyone else. He really took the time to look over the plan we had sketched out. Then before we knew it, we had machinery here to start!

Freezing temperatures, sleet, and wind did not stop these guys! Jerry was very good at having everything planned out on a timely fashion! He and Paul answered my gazillion questions every day’ I loved that they explained everything that was going on to us.

Everyone at Trinity Valley Pools is extremely nice and makes you feel welcome. This has been a very satisfying construction experience. We now have a beautiful pool that we are anxious to swim in when the weather gets warm!

We definitely recommend Trinity Valley Pools to anyone who is thinking about building a pool!

The McCurley

My experience with General Manager and Trinity Valley Pools has been excellent. The timelines proposed were completed on time. All my questions were promptly answered and I always felt informed at every phase.

I would highly recommend Mike and Trinity Valley Pools to anyone ready to start their pool project.

Jason and Ashley Layne

We would like to thank Paul and all of his staff at Trinity Valley Pools and Spas for a job well done! Our Pool is everything we expected and more. They completed it very fast for such a big project. It is absolutely beautiful!

We will highly recommend Trinity Valley Pools and Spas to anyone interested in having a pool built.

James and Angie LaFitte

We had Trinity Valley Pools build our pool in the spring of 2009. I had talked to other pool companies, but once I contacted Trinity Valley Pools to come over, I knew that’s who I wanted building our pool.

They had great ideas on how to use the natural shape of our backyard and include the back porch we already had. Trinity Valley Pools had built a good friend of ours pool the summer before ours and we really liked theirs and would have been happy with something similar, but Trinity Valley Pools designed our own unique pool and the way it works with our backyard is amazing.

We made the decision to go ahead with construction and had hopes of it being completed in time for our daughter’s birthday. I explained this to Mike and he promised me it would be done. That was less than a month and they completed a week early.

We could not have been happier with our experience with Trinity Valley Pools and look forward to our continued relationship.

Kyle and Amy Cooksy

Paul, Randy, Jerry and the whole crew at Trinity Valley Pools have been absolutely wonderful to work with. We sketched out our pool on a piece of paper and explained what was important to us and they literally made it come to life. When it comes to a genuine commitment to satisfying the customer, we definitely chose the right pool company. We could not be happier with the professional quality, customer service and attention to detail that we experienced working with Trinity Valley Pools.

Thanks for a great experience, it has been a real pleasure doing business with a company truly committed to customer service.

Roy &D’Anne Davis

Just a note to say we are extremely pleased with the total pool experience for Trinity Valley Pools. From contract to water the entire experience was easy and dependable. I would like to call out that the pool in and of itself is exactly what we expected it to be and exactly what Trinity Valley Pools promised.

What was not expected was the extra-mile service we received during and after the construction. I might add our pool construction occurred during the Christmas holiday and your team never missed a beat. Jerry was on site through each phase of the construction He ensured that all went according to plan and that we were apprised of what was happing. Upon completion Tony arrived and patiently taught us how to care for our pool and equipment.

Again, the pool is fantastic, but we are more impressed with the complete experience. Hats off to Jerry and Tony!

Chuck and Kim

My family and l wish to thank you for taking care of the problem we had with our Pentair heaterI would like to thank Trinity Valley Pools for standing behind their customer, as well as their products. I have used this company for the eight years. They are always prompt when I Issue a service call (which will hopefully be less frequent now that we have our new heater) and I trust them enough to recommend them to all of our friends who have pool/hot tub needs.

Thank you, again, for standing behind your product and helping us get our situation handled promptlyand very satisfactorily.

Mark Eldore& Family.

Just a note to say that Marie and I are so pleased with the reconstruction you and your people did on our pool. Thank you and everyone involved for the great work and a job well done. Your crews arrived on time each day they were scheduled to be here and completed their work in a timely manner with a minimum of construction clutter around the area.

Your suggestions about the addition of a skimmer and the moving of our filtration equipment were very helpful. The filter and controls are now outof the way and easily accessible. The new handrail is also a blessing.

We very much appreciated your regular telephone calls keeping us updated about the scheduled work to be done, and what would be happening each day the crews were here.

Thank you again, Paul.

Tom and Marie Sheldon

I wanted to inform you of the quality workmanship performed by your people. The young man that did the pool school was very through and made sure that we understood everything he covered with us.

All phases of the work were done timely and with quality, I could not have asked for better people to work with. Jerry went out of his way to work with us and to insure we got quality work performed. In closing let me say that we have enjoyed the pool and my grand-kids have almost moved in with us (because of the pool).

Charles & Sharon McShan

It is a genuine pleasure and honor for us to recommend Trinity Valley Pools for the building of your pool or for you pool needs. We had a very positive experience. Trinity Valley Pools is a very reliable and thorough company. They took the time to sit with us and discuss or wants and our needs when it came to deciding which was the right pool for our family. Setting up appointments to discuss our pool was always at our convenience and they were more than willing to answer any questions we had.

When it came time to build our pool, they would call in advance to fill us in on what was about happen and they were always prompt. When Trinity Valley said they would be working, they were working. Their crews showed up every day until the job was done and they always made sure we were pleased with the work. Our experience with Trinity Valley Pools had been very pleasant. They worked hard and finished the job faster than we expected.

They are very good at honoring their word and their work. We highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a pool. They do great work.


David and Emily Beaver

To Everyone at Trinity Valley Pools in Palestine, John and I want to thank all of you for our beautiful pool. The experience of working with you has been so positive every step of the way. The schedule was right on target and we couldn’t ask for more professionalism.

The construction went perfectly and everyone was so polite and answered our questions with patience.

We would recommend your company to anyone without hesitation. We are so glad you are in Palestine and even after our pool has been built, you’re willing to answer questions or help us in any way.

Thank you again, for a wonderful experience and a fabulous pool.

John and Paula McAughan

Kristin and I would like to thank the team at Trinity Valley Pools for the professionalism, outstanding workmanship, attention to detail and courteous attitude exhibited during our pool construction.

From our first meeting with you, throughout the entire process, every question, every concern was promptly and satisfactorily addressed.

I spoke to many friends with pools prior to meeting with you and we felt that we had a very good idea of what we wanted. I felt you really listened to our wants and needs. You understood perfectly the vision I had and your suggestions and knowledge of pool design enhanced that vision. The end result was that I got exactly what I wanted and a timely manner.

I have worked with many contractors over the years. I can honestly say this was the best experience I have ever had; everything went smoothly, as promised, and with no surprise additional costs. It started out as a honeymoon and stayed that way through the entire project and credit that to you and the team you have put together.

Thanks to Jerry, Tony, Phillip, Randy and the rest of the team for their hard work and persistent oversight throughout the project. I truly feel that Trinity Valley Pools aspires to keep the customer happy.

Your team’s efforts are appreciated and we thank you.

Shannon & Kristin Lekas, Cushing, TX

We just want to thank you for our beautiful pool! We really had a good time from start to finish. Randy was awesome helping us with the design and making sure we got what we wanted. Jerry and all the crews involved were great. I can’t say enough about the people you have working with you; there was nothing but professionalism with everyone that was at our home. From marking off the pool, to the cleanup, to insuring the safety of our pets….everyone was just a pleasure having around.

We are looking forward to many, many fun times with our kids and grand kids!

Thank you again,

Jodi & Bo Harding
