What's so Special about Brad Sharpe Pools?


Brad Sharpe Pools is a one-of-a-kind pool builder in the greater San Antonio area. Please take 60 seconds to find out why…



You’ll soon discover what a difference it makes when you find a pool builder with the right philosophy, the right attitude, the right construction methods, and the track record to prove it.



Our Philosophy…

Our philosophy is very simple: We don’t want you to make a mistake. That’s why we go out of our way to build a better pool. From stronger steel, to thicker concrete, to our “looped” hydraulics, to the painstaking “bevel” that we custom-cut on every single piece of PVC pipe — NOBODY cares about the long-lasting quality of your pool like we do.


And apparently, we’re on the right track, because in 22 years, not one of our pool projects has had a structural issue. (And that’s saying a lot, considering the horrible soil conditions we have in this part of Texas.)


In fact, let’s be honest here – Our painstaking methods sometimes things just a little bit longer than your “average” pool builder. And our cost is likely to be a little bit higher too. But it’s really no different than buying a new car.


After all, if you wanted the lowest price in town on a car, you would by a Kia.


But if you’re more interested in something that’s beautiful, modern, sophisticated, highly-reliable and well-engineered, then you should be talking to someone like us.

A Brief History of Brad Sharpe Pools

Brad Sharpe Sr. started in the pool industry in 1983, working for another local pool company. While he loved the industry, he discovered that the company simply wouldn’t do what they promise to the homeowners. So after five years, he left that company and opened Brad Sharpe Pools.


In time, Brad Sharpe Jr. joined the company, after extensive training at an exclusive hydraulics school in Missouri. Brad was soon joined by his brother Adam, who with his engineering degree, brings additional special skills to the company.


Since the beginning, the attitude and approach has always been “do whatever it takes” to make things right for the homeowner. With an obsession to detail, Brad Sharpe Pools build a loyal following of happy customers who to this day, are still proud to show off their 20+ year old pool from Brad Sharpe Pools.


Currently, Brad Sharpe Pools is located in an historic old renovated farmhouse at the corner of Nacogdoches and MacArthur Street, near the Terrell Hills section of North San Antonio. They can be reached at (210) 822-5620

A design engineer or “specifier” can require the use of ACI certified nozzlemen in their specifications. This gives the companies like Brad Sharpe Pools the assurance that the Nozzleman has demonstrated the knowledge and ability to properly place shotcrete.


Although the certification and certificates are issued by ACI, the education and testing are provided by Sponsoring Groups authorized by ACI. The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is the primary sponsoring group, consisting of ACI Approved Examiners for the shotcrete nozzleman certification program.
