Building or owning a new swimming pool can leave you with many questions. While we hope this page answers many of those questions, we  invite you to contact us. Below are some of the common questions asked by homeowners when considering their new swimming pool.

Q: How is MyPoolCenter.net, Swimming Pools by Robert Trahan and Gulf Coast Pools related?

A: MyPoolCenter.Net, Swimming Pools By Robert Trahan and Gulf Coast Pools are all owned by Trahan Investments, Inc., a family owned and operated firm in the Houston, Texas area. An industry leader in swimming pools, Robert began in 1975 building and servicing pools. Robert and Yulonde Trahan decided to add a local retail store/showroom so customers could also find all their pool needs and one shop. Hence, MyPoolCenter.net was born! Recently, the couple expanded their business to the gulf coast and acquired a third pool building and service company-Gulf Coast Pools. All three are family owned and operated with a rich history, a wealth of expertise and passion for pools. We would love to answer any more questions about our company, just contact us today!
