We believe no dream is too small or too ambitious for your backyard.


Retired President and Owner of Johnson Custom Pools, Tom Johnson (pool builder in Austin), had been building custom designed swimming pools in the Austin area for over 50 years.  His pool building career began in 1965 as a construction worker for Centex Pools.  During the course of his employment with Centex he worked his way up through the company and eventually assumed co-ownership and the presidency.

When Centex Pools disbanded during the recession in the 1980's, Tom immediately formulated plans to start his own company.  Together with his wife, Lynda, they founded Johnson Custom Pools, launching a very successful pool construction business.  In 1990, Tom's son, Craig, joined the company to work in the area of design and sales.  He was named Vice President when they incorporated as Central Texas Waterscapes, Inc. 

In January 2019, Craig took over the business and it was renamed to Johnson Custom Pools LLC.  Tom is enjoying his full retirement but remains on as a valued consultant.

The success behind Johnson Custom Pools pool builder can be attributed to its remaining a family business, which ensures personal attention to detail for each customer.  The company has employed the same family of construction crew members that began working with Tom in the 1980's.  This crew, Tom, Craig, and his wife, Melinda all worked together to maintain a high level of expertise and professionalism.
