True Artisans who express their talent in swimming pool and poolscape construction.

Boulder Pools is a family owned custom pool construction company serving Austin and Central Texas including Lakeway, Round Rock, Georgetown, San Marcos, and Kyle to name some of the areas.  Established in 2001 by Jim and Carolyn Brisco, Boulder Pools specializes in creating natural backyard masterpieces.

Jim began his adventures with water as a commercial fishing boat captain in Alaska's Bering Sea.  Following a 25 year career seeking "the deadliest catch" in the cold Alaskan waters, he now builds beautiful pools to collect calmer water where families can play.

Splashway Family Waterpark in Sheridan, Texas was the first "pool" created by Jim Brisco. In 1993 he founded a nonprofit organization and helped secure state grants to fund its construction. They built a water park - along with a baseball field, soccer fields, walking trails, RV park and a playground. He chaired the group formed as a community volunteer until 2001 when they left to focus on growing their Kyle, Texas-based, Boulder Pools. Go to to see this vibrant jewel in the middle of nowhere that provides water fun all summer long to over 80,000 guests per year - and has every summer since June of 1998.

Boulder Pools enjoys an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and Jim works with his customers to create exactly what they want. Carolyn is a professional artist who draws each potential pool with input from homeowners and knowledge gained from a lifetime of creativity. Her landscaping talents and knowledge of plants can bring your beautiful poolscape to life. Isam who is the artificial rock and waterfall specialist, creates stunning works of art that integrate into your pool and backyard.

Jim and his wife, Carolyn, and son Isam, express their creative talents in every project. They are true artisans and create beauty in your surroundings while designing an environment that fits your family's personality, lifestyle and budget. They will always provide you with the flexibility and control to create the swimming pool that will delight you.

You will have your own unique backyard environment for relaxation, fitness, entertainment, and fun!
