Pooltex American Pools

About us


To provide our customers with the best quality in swimming pool installation, maintenance, and service at competitive prices.


To help prevent your pool from becoming your biggest problem.

In 1985, after working in the pool industry for a few short years, Ken Baker was presented the opportunity to purchase a fledgling Pooltex American.

He took it! And brought along his wife Paula. The beginning was at times precarious. Together Ken & Paula persevered and built Pooltex to what it is today.

Ken & Paula’s son, John Baker, grew up performing many of the duties within Pooltex. In 2003, after attending college and having a successful career in the NFL as a punter, John returned home to Brenham and to Pooltex. John is slowly taking over the business while Ken & Paula entertain the idea of retirement!


Ken, through the years, has many favorites, but these days, handling the remodels, his favorite is to see tile with layers of buildup sparkle like new after a tile cleaning.

Paula, then and now, the everyday face to face visiting with people.
John, the faces of customers when the result of their vision is now a reality.


And a special thank you to all Pooltex American customers for your business over the past 30 years!
