I reached out to the PAX team after my pool was damaged by the freeze and was down. From the time they answered my call, to the service call and estimate, these guys were fast, respectful and straight to the point. Anthony and Bailey went above and beyond to get me help, find the parts I needed, and to make suggestions on the next steps, but in the end there was more damage than expected and I have to get my insurance involved. I received the quote from PAX for what needs to be done so far. I just wish my insurance company was as quick, reliable, and had the great customer service that PAX does. My pool wouldn’t still be down. I look forward to working with these guys, to get things back up and going properly once insurance decides to actually do their part. Thank you PAX team!

Mr. Ducan and his wife came out to our house and was so knowledgeable about why and what could cause the leak. I have to say He was very helpful and honest this is why I would recommend him to anyone. He didn’t try to charge me a crazy price . He literally went to where the leak was at and use some red dye to see how and where exactly it was coming from.Fixed it in like 15 minutes or less. Then gave me some of the stuff he fixed the leak with and also guaranteed if I had any problems with this he would come back . Just a call away . Everyone know how hard it is to get an honest contractor and this company I must say is a 10 out of 10 Thank you Thank you Thank you.

josh parker pax pools

Josh Parker | Co-Founder

Joshua Parker’s entrepreneurial journey began when he founded Parker’s Real Maple as a 15-year-old. A few years later, he was blessed to pitch his business to ABC’s Shark Tank and receive mentorship from Mark Cuban. With distribution to over 7,000 retailers, Joshua sold the business to a larger maple syrup farm. Working in his father’s excavation business naturally led Josh to his next business venture – Parker Communications – which became a trusted name in fiber optic engineering and construction. Since then, Joshua has drawn from his valuable experiences in entrepreneurship and utility contracting to co-found PAX Pools.

Nathan Chessher | Co-Founder

Nathan Chessher, a Central Texas native, developed a work ethic and customer-focused mindset growing up in his family’s manufacturing business. Following his service in the United States Marine Corps, Nathan established successful careers in the oil & gas and telecom construction sectors. Across the breadth of his experience, Nate has proven his ability to manage people and projects with integrity and skill. His passion for pool construction began with assisting in large, complex pool builds over the past decade. As PAX Pools’ co-founder, Nathan leverages his technical expertise to ensure projects meet the highest standards, delivering on time and within budget.

Anthony Duncan | General Manager

With more than 33 years of pool-building experience, Anthony knows pool construction inside and out. He began as a general laborer and worked his way up to general manager, obtaining certifications in Gunite application, Shotcrete application, swimming pool surfacing, and learning the latest in pool technology and OSHA requirements. Anthony has managed builds for the elite in Miami and Fisher Island including Sylvester Stallone, Steven Tyler, and Oprah Winfrey. (It’s whispered that his favorite client was George Jones.) He brings all divisions of PAX Pools together as one – from new construction to renovation, sales, service, and repair. 

Bailee Duncan | Construction Coordinator

One of the most challenging aspects of pool construction is communication and coordination. Not only does the right person have to communicate with the customer but must also be able to coordinate with the many different crews involved with the building process along with having the responsibility of working with the different municipalities on permitting and inspections. We are blessed to have the right person for the job. Bailee has spent the last 6 years making this position look easy. The heart and soul of any swimming pool companies success depends on personal one on one communication with our customers and we here at PAX Pools are extremely proud to have her as our Construction Coordinator.

Jaime Tobar | Lead Mason

Behind a great sales and design team, you have to have a great follow-up field team. As custom concrete pools go, it is our expert masons that bring life to the design. We are proud to have a seasoned, experienced, professional mason as part of our team. With 24 years of experience Mr. Jaime Tobar (Our Lead Mason) oversees and supervises three mason crews that he has personally trained and entrusted to perform and create extraordinary features. Everything from our tile and coping to extreme waterfalls and grottos, he takes great pride in seeing our clients visions come to fruition.

PAX Pools proudly holds the Google Guaranteed certification, signifying that we are a thoroughly vetted and qualified pool company. Google’s rigorous screening offers customers peace of mind in the process of finding a trustworthy contractor. But we promise not to stop at this certification—earning your trust and satisfaction through dedicated customer service is our top priority!

our story

It all started from a family need — Josh’s in-laws had just moved to Texas to be near his family and dreamt of a pool that would bring extra fun to their time together. Given Josh’s construction background, he was tasked with finding a pool builder. Many contractors insisted on remote consultations, relying on photographs and old data – the entire estimating process was a struggle. Dismayed by the expense and prolonged timelines presented by these contractors, Josh recruited his best friend and longtime business partner, Nate, to build the pool themselves!

It soon became clear that many other families throughout Austin also needed more from a pool builder – so Josh and Nate founded PAX Pools! Josh’s background in excavation and general contracting perfectly complemented Nate’s pool-building expertise. Josh and Nate shared a strong work ethic and determination to exceed customer expectations. Together, they assembled a team of seasoned pool builders who believed in their vision of being a fair-minded, fair-priced, and timely custom pool builder providing true craftsmanship.

The custom poolscape for Josh’s in-laws shaped PAX’s distinctive, customer-centric approach to pool building – and that customer focus has propelled their success. What began as a solution to one family’s problem has evolved into a thriving business redefining excellence in custom pool building. Today the PAX Pools team remains committed to our mission of serving every client as we would wish to be served.
