Frequently Asked Questions
Are these in-ground pools?
Yes. Our pool are in-ground, gunite construction that will last for many years to come.
Where do you build?
Backyard Fun Pools is based in Cypress, TX and we are currently accepting jobs in Non-City areas of west Houston. Areas such as Cypress, Tomball, Hockley, Waller, Katy and Richmond.
Why no city jobs?
We strive to keep our cost of production as low as possible to deliver a quality product at an affordable price. As such, we have made the decision to eliminate jobs inside of city limits. City governments greatly increase the production times and cost of building a project and does not fit with our business model.

Is EVERYTHING included in the price?
The short answer is no. We have included many of the things needed to build a pool, but it is impossible for us the cover everything needed for every back yard. Each property is unique, and may require extras not covered in the base price. Examples of these are access issues requiring smaller machinery. Trees that need to be removed. Fencework. Additional drainage. Sprinkler system and landscaping repairs. HOA fees. Utility reroutes. All of these things will require extra work at an additional cost.
What is Gunite?
Gunite is a concrete product that can be shot at high pressure using a hose. This allows us to create pool shells that are very durable and will last for many years to come.
Will building a pool do a lot of damage to my back yard?
Building a pool is a major construction project. As such, you should expect considerable damage to grass and landscaping during construction of the pool. We will be using heavy machinery, and will need to dig trenches for plumbing, electrical and drainage lines. But rest assured that we do not leave the site in this condition.
How big is the pool equipment?
The pool equipment pad for a pool without a spa is 4' x 3'. This can be placed in the yard near the pool, or on the side of the house.
