    You sound like someone That should build us a new pool.

    Call me @281-723-****. We are ready if you are.

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hey there! Your new beautiful, affordable, VERY LOW maintenance American Fiberglass Pool will be ready to swim in by next week! Thanks for allowing us to assist you!

  4. Geoffrey says:

    Hi Wayne,
    Congratulations on your 42 years! All your people that worked on our pool last summer were top hands. We are anxious for the weather to allow us to start swimming again.
    You did us a wonderful job and please accept our heartfelt thanks again!


    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Thanks Geoff, my troops still talk about you grilling for them almost everyday during the pool construction.

  5. Melvin Powers says:

    Hope that your family has continued success & many more years of serving the pool buying public.
    We have been a very happy customer now for over 26 years. The pool that you installed us has been everything you said it would be & much more.
    Our son, Carson & his wife are interested in a pool now. They will be calling you soon!

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hey Mel! So nice to hear from you! It will be our privilege to assist your son’s family too!

  6. Rockette says:

    My congrates to your company!
    The weird thing with the pool biz is that there are so many companys that have not been around long [10 yrs. or less] that offer long term warrantys too.
    I think that a Buyer should be concerned about the longitivity of who builds their pool.
    The longer the pool company has been around, the better the chances are that they will stay around if you need them in the future.

  7. Barnes,R says:

    I’m willing to bet that no other fiberglass pool company anywhere can say that their family has been building fiberglass pools or have four generations of family within the business!

    Mucho congratulations to each of you!!!!!

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Robert, so nice to hear from you! I believe your conclusion is totally correct sir!

  8. Another Happy Customer says:

    You guys are the best & we appreciate all the hard work that you did to make our new American Fiberglass Pool the pool of our dreams.

    Zoe & Franco

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hi Zoe & Franco. We enjoyed assisting your family! Thanks for the nice thoughts and please let us know if we can ever do anything else for you!

  9. Cameron5 says:

    We live in Brenham and have owned one of your pool before in the Rolling Fork subdivision. We were not the original owners but enjoyed the pool for 16 years.
    We have now built our dream home out here in the country. All our place needs is for you guys to do your thing once again.
    Call me at 979-***-****.

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Glad to hear that you enjoyed your first American Fiberglass Pool for so many years. We will make sure the second one being built right now will perform the same way!

  10. Surligneur, Remi says:

    Your company has an exceptional history. We congratulate you.
    We have a pool company in France. There are many companies here that provide fibre glass pools. They are the most popular type of pool here.
    We are looking to provide a product line that is currently unavailable in our country.
    Please contact me by email so that we can exchange ideas.

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Bon jour Remi! I am looking forward to your visit to our factory in April. As discussed, our companys have a lot in common being family run. I trust we will be able to work out a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

  11. D. Sumners says:

    Great to read about such a capable company run by a Family. You folks obviously work hard and pay lots of attention to the details.
    Our interest is in building a fiberglass pool before the kids are out of school again.
    Please feel free to call me on my cell phone at 281-*******.
    We would like to visit with one of your reps ASAP.

    Thank you, D. Sumners

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hello Dave. We are just waiting at this time for all your building permits to arrive. We should be able to start construction of your beautiful, affordable, VERY LOW maintenance American Fiberglass Pool within a week or so.

  12. Frank Arevalo says:

    Amazing longitivity and I agree with everyone else here that you guys much be a great company to do business with.

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hi Frank. We are here today because we have a wonderful product line, work from daylight to dark thirty and pay special attention to the details of our projects.

  13. Long Tall Sally says:

    Bet no other fibre glas pool manufacturer can match your company’s length of time in business.

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      You are correct. No other fiberglass pool manufacturer in the USA can say its name, address, ownership, and phone have all been the same for over 42 years.

  14. Woolery3 says:

    What is the very best time of the year to buy an inground pool?

    We want a very large diving pool that is at least 17-18feet wide.
    Can you make a suggestion?

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      November – March is the best time to build a pool if you want it ready for the swim season. We have 2 large diving pools; the 17′ wide one if the Rio Grande; the 18′ wide one is the Frio. You will find both of them to have a vast amount of swim area.

  15. Harry Pruitt says:

    You guts have quite an impressive story to tell. Sitting around talking to your Dad must have been a lot of info to digest about the pool business.

    Now for a stupid question….my wife is set on building a black pool.
    Can or will you build one out of fiberglass???

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      My dad was a real hoot! Always full of stories about his many adventures. We can build a black pool and have done so several times in the past. Which size American Fiberglass Pool best suits you?

  16. Olivia says:

    If you want your pool built as quick as possible, buy a fiberglass pool from American Fiberglass Pools.
    The bad weather happening all over the country right now plays havoc with scheduling but in spite of 15 days of rain the last month they finished our pool in less than 3 weeks.

    Just a remarkable acheivement and their workers are just so nice.
    Is your forman Henry available for adoption????

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Hello Olivia. Thanks again for letting us assist your family! I don’t think Henry’s wife or kids will adopt him out to anyone. Henry as you know is a great guy and really loves our clients.

  17. Charmaine says:

    We have owned several types of pools, even an above ground years ago.
    The fiberglass pool we owned was an American Fiberglass Pool built for us in Louisiana by Pauley Pools in 1978.
    That pool was easy to take care of. My sister and her husband still live there and the pool is in great shape.
    You did a great job American Fiberglass Pools!

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Wow! Have not heard Pauley Pools mentioned in close to 30 years. Jim was a great guy to do biz with and is in the hospitality and lodging biz right there in Lake Charles and doing very well I understand.

  18. Jesus Valeros says:

    We had a pool of yours built in San Antonio back in the early 80′s. The builder, Happy Days Pools did a great job but they are not here anymore.
    We had a fantastic experience with your product. In checking around here , we cannot find a current fiberglass pool builder that we feel comfortable with.
    Can you suggest someone in this area that installs your pools?

    Thank you!

    • R. Wayne Stringer says:

      Happy Days was a fantastic dealer for us for almost 10 years until Chuck died of cancer in 1987. We do not currently have a dealer near you so please give me a call on my cell phone at 713-817-9589 and we will work something out!

  19. Sid Lantz says:

    Impressive company history you have there! I’m sure that your family must be some incredible pool builders!!!

  20. Kyle Webber says:

    I am completely impressed with how long you guys have been around. It is a pleasent rarity to read about organzations such as you. Much continued sucess awaits you!

  21. Cohen says:
