Jim Barrow, owner and founder of Graham Pools, has been building and pioneering the swimming pool industry since 1975. His 45 years of building experience includes: residential, commercial, health & racquetball fitness, equestrian, subdivision entrance water features & outdoor baptistery pools. With over four decades of experience, there is nothing you can imagine in your yard that Graham Pools cannot build, including creeks, waterfalls, splash pads, fire features, outdoor kitchens & living spaces or even a workshop.
Jim has often been called Mr. Graham. However, he chose the name Graham Pools due to the number of pools he was building in the area of Graham TX, along with a fondness to the town which seemingly resembled the Grapevine/Colleyville area where Jim and his father built so many pools in the 1980’s and 90’s. It was widely known Jim’s father was the largest builder in that area, and builders often refused to bid against him in saying he owned pgs. 50-54 of the Mapsco. The family tradition is carried on through Jim, his wife, their family, and now through his grandson, Corbin.
Jim and Corbin have been a team since Corbin was “knee high to a grasshopper” as he likes to say. He learned everything he knows from the best; his Grandfather! After graduating, Corbin went off to North Dakota to work in the oilfield, where he was quickly promoted to the youngest Driller the company had and soon a Rig Manager. On his days off, he would build pools with Jim but it wasn’t very long after the birth of his own children that he decided he wanted to be home with his family every night and build pools full-time. Graham Pools was started because of our passion for prioritizing family values. We believe that time spent together is priceless and when we get the honor of building your pool, we get to be a part of building those lasting memories you will have in your own family. Corbin and his wife Michaela now have teamed up to design and build people’s dream pools!
