Part 2 – Keith Zars Pools Employees & Crews

One of the most noticeable differences between Keith Zars Pools and other pool builders in San Antonio is the sheer size of our company. We employ over 350 full-time people in the San Antonio area.

You may wonder� why is it necessary for a pool builder to have so many full-time employees? That’s a great question! We do not use subcontractors because our in-house crews allow us to better control the progress of each project.

Our size also allows us to buy directly from the source, keeping material costs down, and our volume allows us to work directly with manufacturers in the development and testing of new products.

In-House Construction Crews

Having in-house crews to work on each pool project instead of hiring subcontractors guarantees the highest quality workmanship and ensures your pool build will stay on budget and be completed on time.

Without subcontractors, we can also give each customer peace of mind and added security since there will be company employee-only access to their home.

Plus, our comprehensive insurance coverage gives complete customer protection in the event of a job accident.

Construction Superintendents

Our construction superintendents provide personal attention and easy accessibility through our unique “territory” arrangement.

The superintendents have an average tenure with Keith Zars Pools of nearly 16 years. They are able to provide professional supervision throughout the pool build and are able to quickly respond to any of your questions.

Because of the unique territory arrangement we have, your pool superintendent will already be familiar with your local inspectors, codes, and requirements and will also be familiar with the typography, terrain, and soil conditions in your backyard.

Professional Landscape Architectural Team

Our Landscape Architects analyze your yard’s existing conditions (sun & shade exposure, trees & existing landscape, topography, and existing views) and combine this with your personal style to create a true and unique backyard oasis. This professional touch truly makes a Keith Zars Pool distinct from all other swimming pools.

Exterior Design Specialist

The hands-on experience our exterior design specialist gives allows customers to touch and feel every material before they select it for their pool. Since we have the most extensive selection of pool line tile, stone, and plaster on-site for you to choose from, our exterior designer gives you guidance throughout the material selection process.

Ongoing Customer Support

Our fully-staffed swimming pool service, swimming pool cleaning, and swimming pool remodeling departments ensure your pool is in pristine condition even 30 years after it’s been built.

  • Coping/Decking: 
    • Keith Zars Pools delivers a wide range of coping and decking edges and finishes, and our stone masons will construct your coping and decking to flawlessly fit your pool. 
    • For a more contemporary look, consider clean, square-cut edges paired with a stunning array of elegant cut stone, travertine and porcelain finishes. 
    • For a more traditional look, consider bullnose-edge coping and freeform deck shapes coupled with the soothing textures and colors of flagstone, salt and cool coat finishes.

Water & Fire Feature Additions

The addition of water and fire features can enhance your entire outdoor experience in a variety of ways. The soothing sights and sounds of a new waterfall or water feature, or the warmth and light created by a fire bowl or fire pit, can create striking visuals, new focal points, and add a heightened level of symmetry, originality, functionality and luxury to your overall pool design.

  • Water Features: 
    • Adding water features, such as delightful bubblers on an existing sun shelf, lively deck jets around your pool’s coping, and stunning sheer descents or scuppers that allow water to gently cascade down a raised pool wall, provides gorgeous highlights and accents to your pool that you can marvel at.  
    • Waterfalls create a cozy, perennial and soothing look and feel to any pool. The beautifully colored stones and gently flowing water can bring balance and harmony to your outdoor space and transform your entire outdoor experience.
  • Fire Features: 
    • Fire bowls, fire pits and custom fire accent features give way to a spectacular display of color, vibrancy and light that allow you and your family to enjoy your pool day and night. Discover how the elements of water and fire combined create a magnetic and harmonious balance and produce a gorgeous chemistry that’s both subtle and bold.

Decking & Spa Additions

  • Added Deck Space
    • Expanding the amount of decking in your back yard can allow for more space to entertain and relax poolside. Imagine a new patio addition around your pool to place a set of comfortable lounging chairs, a stylish outdoor dining spot, a stunning outdoor kitchen area or a striking fire pit and seating area. 
  • Add a Spa
    • Adding a spa to your existing pool is a great way to bring a new level of functionality and enjoyment to your personal outdoor retreat. Spas offer a therapeutic experience and, with vast array of styles and custom features from which to choose, your new spa will not only relax and invigorate you, it can become the focal point of your pool and serve as an energetic and complementary addition to its entire design. 

New Pool Amenities

  • Are you looking to find new ways to spend time in your pool? Adding a swim-up bar, a sun shelf, and umbrella anchors can boost your experience and bring a new level of luxury to your outdoor space. 
  • For added recreational fun, consider incorporating a water slide, a diving board, a basketball goal or a volleyball anchor. 
  • You can even add or relocate steps and seat benches in your pool, or have new LED lights installed to broaden your pools functionality and visual appeal.

Alone you can dream of your ultimate backyard sanctuary. Together we can achieve it. Contact Keith Zars Pools today to schedule an appointment with one of our renovations experts and begin your pool remodeling project.

Our Reviews

What Happy Customers Are Saying About Us

We had a cocktail pool installed by KZP and the pool turned out fantastic. We received quotes from two other pool companies, and while KZP was the higher, they were also the only ones willing to work with our custom design. They use top-quality materials and offered a huge selection of pool fittings/finishes. Kent Ely in sales was easy to work with and was pressure-free at making the sale. Bill Sturgis was our site supervisor (we didn't see him very often but was very responsive to email, phone calls, or text messages). Elizabeth, in the design department, was fun to work with while we picked color scheme and tiles. They had a very small space to work with and they did what they had to do to make it work. I would recommend KZP to anyone.

We are very excited to start using our Kieth Zar's pool this summer. They turned our backyard into our dream. Tony came out and answered all our questions on the initial visit, and measured everything in our backyard, including trees. He returned the next week with an outstanding design on paper and a 3-D model on the computer that made it come to life. We had some delays and struggles with HOA, but knowing that Zar's was in our corner and doing all the work to get everything approved, we had no worries. Work was completed on schedule, even with weather delays. John and Toby walked us through and answered all our questions along the whole build process. We also know we can still call with any more questions we have along the way, even though the job is complete.
