Above-Ground Pool

If you are inquiring about the pool manufactured by Buster Crabbe, click here
If you are looking for the Buster Crabbe brand of above ground pools, we are not affiliated with that company. They do not have an online presence and unfortunately we do not have any contact information for them. We would recommend talking to a local pool service and supply company that will be able to not only sell you a pool (even if it’s not a “Buster Crabbe” pool), but also offer you service, advice, and help for the years down the road as you use and enjoy your pool.

If you are inquiring about an in-ground Buster Crabbe brand pool, that manufacturer went out of business many years ago and unfortunately we are not aware of any resources available for parts or information about the pools.

For anyone in the Springfield and Southwest Missouri area, we offer several sizes and models of above ground pools that will fit anyone’s budget.  With our high quality above grounds you don’t have to sacrifice quality, looks, or usability. All of our above ground pools come with an in-ground quality liner, wide-mouth skimmer, 1hp or larger pump and sand filter system, start-up chemicals, and a deck ladder. We also offer very affordable upgrade packages depending on your wants and needs. And once you are swimming we offer free water tests and are available to answer any questions you may have as you maintain and enjoy your pool.

Please come by our showroom to view our display pool, wall samples, equipment displays, and everything you will need to make your above ground pool project a success. For more information, call us today at 417-725-7665.

Do you sell Buster Crabbe manufactured above ground pools?

We are NOT a manufacturer (or dealer) of the Buster Crabbe brand of above ground pools. That company was bought out a long time ago. We are a local custom pool construction and service company in the Southwest Missouri area. If you are looking for an above ground pool, we recommend buying from a local pool company that will not only be able to provide a pool but follows up with service for the lifetime of the pool.

If you are inquiring about an in-ground Buster Crabbe brand pool, the manufacturer went out of business years ago and unfortunately, we are not aware of any resources for parts or information regarding these pools.

What pool do you sell and who makes it?

We sell the 54” Legend 8 above ground pool manufactured by Wilbar. Please see above for more information regarding the details of this pool.

Can these above ground pools be converted to salt water or installed in the ground?

We do not recommend salt water sanitization systems for above ground pools due to exposure to metals (salt is naturally corrosive), nor do we recommend them to be installed in the ground. Both processes used on the pool would void its warranty and shorten the lifetime of the pool.

Do you install above ground pools?

We do not install above ground pools nor do we have pricing for such service. If you need installation services in the SW Missouri area call us for a recommendation.

Do you have financing?

We do not offer any financing – we’ve found the best deals available to you would be through your bank.

How long does it take to get my pool once it is purchased?

All the above-ground pool sizes we offer are kept in stock while supplies last. Ideally, we prefer to have a day or two notice before pick up so we can have your custom pool package together when you arrive.

How do I get my above ground pool?

Most above ground pool packages fit on a pallet and will fit in a standard truck bed. If you are needing extra installation materials plan on a second vehicle or trailer bed. If you don’t want to handle it, many installers will pick it up for you for a fee.

Are the pool packages customizable?

Yes! Our above ground pool packages are designed to meet your pool needs and lifestyle at a competitive price! We offer a few levels of pool packages from simple to deluxe. Please see the Pool Package Overview drop-down tab for a general overview of our current pool packages. Note items are subject to change year to year and while supplies last.

Does this pool have a warranty?

Yes! The manufacturers provide a 25-year prorated/2 year full warranty on the pool structure and 1-year warranty on most of the pool equipment.

What kind of equipment is included with the pool package?

We paired the Legend 8 pool with a Carvin pump and sand filter system (sizing dependent on pool size), all of the maintenance equipment (brush, pole, vacuum, etc.), and auto-skimmer.

Do you carry parts for above ground pools?

We pride ourselves on having the largest stock of parts for equipment in the Springfield area. Unfortunately, structural elements on pools are often only available from the dealers that carry the particular brand of pool, so the best option for items like that are to go where the pool was originally purchased. Similarly, parts for INTEX, Coleman, and other “non-permanent” above ground pools are best purchased online from the manufacturer directly because they do not provide parts for local stores to stock.

Do you have replacement above ground pool liners?

Yes. We do have above ground liners in stock for most sizes and types plus the extra supplies that you will need when replacing your liner. If you need a replacement liner, please call our office at 417-725-7665 and we would be happy to help you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your crew for a job well done on the above-mentioned project (Senior Health Center – Boliver, MO). It is a pleasure to work with subcontractors that take as much interest in our projects as we do. We look forward to doing business with your company in the future.

- Mike – Project Manager

Just wanted to say thanks… you guys did an awesome job. I don’t think Lori and I couldn’t be happier with the pool. Thought you might like a picture or two. If someone needs a reference please tell them to call or come and see. We will have nothing but great things to say.

- Dave – Home Owner

The work you did for my wife and I, where you installed a 20’ x 40’ foot pool and hot tub, was clearly superior. This is particularly true in the light of the fact that we required an unusual mix of concrete and dye. Since the installation, your maintenance has been prompt and courteous. Everyone on your staff has always been very helpful and obliging every time we have an inquiry or a request. I am particularly pleased with your delivery service for chemicals. Prior to finding your company, I have dealt with every other major company in town and have never been quite satisfied with the service, and sometimes, have been quite dissatisfied. Should you wish to refer anyone to me for a personal reference, I would be more than happy to talk to them about your work and your service.

- James – Home Owner

We want to thank you and your crew for the job you did on our pool. The work was done was you promised with little or no trouble. The project was started as soon as the ground & weather would allow. You came in and did the excavating, hauled off the earth and the pool was under way. There was never any mess left by any of the fellows who worked with you. Everyone had a job and did what they were supposed to do. The only regret we have is that we didn’t put the pool in years ago. There is very little work to the up keep and we really have loved the pool. We would not hesitate to recommend you to do any work. You are honest and we appreciated all the work you did. If anyone wants to see our pool just give us a call, you’re more than welcome to come by at any time. May you have a successful year.

- Ted & Deloris – Home Owners

I am writing to commend you on the job you did in installing my 20 by 40 foot rectangular pool with adjoining hot tub. I certainly appreciated the attention to detail and the promptness and courtesy of your crew and entire organization.

- James – Home Owner

One of the reasons we had for our hesitation at installing a pool was the horror stories about difficulty in caring for the pool. This was not the situation at all with our Buster Crabbe Pool. Jeff, you and your crew should be very proud of the pools you have installed. Since you installed our pool, we have seen several others done by your crew, and they are beautiful! In talking to those owners, I discover that they share the same feelings as we do.

- Bill – Home Owner

When we decided to build a pool we check with several pool companies. We chose the Buster Crabbe Pool over the others for the following reasons.

  • The price of the pool project was very competitive.
  • We wanted a lot of extra concrete work done. Buster Crabbe Pool does all of their own work. You don’t have the work problems of sub-contracting it out. This is our first winter with the pool and it is in good shape.
  • We liked the concrete finishing work around the coping and pool edge.
  • The project price also included the dirt removal – no hidden cost later.
  • Buster Crabbe gave us a timetable on pool construction and this was met.
  • The follow up service was as promised. The company made sure the pool was working properly. They showed us how to use the pool equipment and chemicals. Be sure to ask about pool chemicals. We were charged for ours through Buster Crabbe and I don’t know if you can get them cheaper other places. They called or stopped by several times to check on us.

We have been pleased with our pool thus far. It will be a year old the end of July.

- Wayne & Connie – Home Owners

With Many Thanks, for a beautiful pool you all made for us, and my soon. I love it. Also, a lot of our other friends, say its beautiful. Buster Crabbe Pools can do a beautiful job.

- Molly – Home Owner

We contracted with Buster Crabbe Pool of, Springfield MO, to install a 16’ x 32’ in ground pool. The job was completed to the exact specifications, on time and on budget. Our pool has been trouble free; however, any minor service needs were taken care of. We were so pleased with our pool that we’ve since purchased a hot tub from Buster Crabbe Pools. If you’re considering purchasing a pool or hot tub, I would highly recommend talking with Jeff at Buster Crabbe Pools.

- Jerome – Home Owner

A friend at Lake Ozark, for whom you installed a pool, game me your name. At the time, I had quote for a total concrete pool, but was not in the frame of mind to spend that kind of money. After meeting with you and discussing the Buster Crabbe concept of a vinyl-lined pool, we decided to proceed with the installation. Our pool was installed in a timely and professional manner, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The vinyl lining is great; the equipment works well, and the accessories are the best. Taking care of the pool last summer was very easy and with the fine way it is set up, requires very little maintenance time.

- Jeff – Home Owner

While waiting for spring and “into the pool”, just a word to thank you for the excellent job we got from your organization. We looked at a number of other pools before deciding on a “Buster Crabbe”. Straight price was a consideration and many of the pools had similarities in construction. The items that sold us on your brand were the larger sand filter, pump and the number of outlets to facilitate water circulation and cleaning. Pool quality is one thing that can be determined prior to installation but the actual construction and final product is what you have to live with. We were delighted with the dispatch and expertise displayed by your crew. The pool is flat and true and the cement work, including the extra walkways, is second to none. I’m sure you can gather from all this that we are exceptionally well pleased with our pool and your work and will certainly recommend you to any and all who are interested.

- Richard – Home Owner

We purchased a Buster Crabbe pool two years ago. The primary reasons we did so were:

  • We liked the product
  • We liked the idea that the same person that sold us the pool would install it and eventually service it.

We have been happy with our pool; if we had to do it again we would more than likely make the same decision!

- Perry & Cheryl – Home Owners

I wanted to take a moment and write a recap of our first years’ experience with the swimming pool you installed for us in the spring. As I shared with you earlier, we were impressed and pleased with the presentation, including you explanation of all the options and helpful suggestions aimed at getting us into exactly the pool we wanted, and more importantly, within our budget. Your clear explanation of the terms of payment and what each of us should expect from the other as the process went along was certainly instrumental in insuring there were no unpleasant surprises. The building started on time and was completed as promised. We suggested some changes, such as adding more concrete decking, and of course, all of these were incorporated into the final project, the end result being a very beautiful and functional swimming pool which gets a lot of use. Your support during the summer to help insure we understood the pool chemicals and what was required to keep the water sparling clear and how to work the valves and pumps is appreciated, and I am pleased to report I was able to teach my wife and daughter the process, and they handle most of the minor adjustments as they are needed. Last fall, when you shut the pool down, everything was done in a very professional and proper manner at a reasonable price, and we experienced no problems over the winter. I am particularly thankful for your suggestion that we go for the permanently anchored pool cover as opposed to the standard cover, which would have been anchored with sandbags or bricks. The pool wintered well, and when you and your crew opened it this spring, we were in business with no trouble and little expense. All of the above has provided us with the opportunity to observe the process from initial construction through a full one-year cycle, all of which came together very nicely.

- Dave & Donna – Home Owners

We purchased a Buster Crabbe Swimming Pool in July. The dimensions of the pool are 16 x 32, with a vinyl liner, diving board, slide, steps, lights and a concrete pad surrounding the pool. The quality of the materials is excellent. We have had no problems with the quality or workmanship. Jeff started the pool in the middle of July, and although we had two torrential rainstorms, was able to complete the pool and landscaping by mid-August. In regard to the service and maintenance of the pool, Jeff has always made service calls, returned phone calls, and been able to answer and fix any questions we may have in regard to our swimming pool. As a further endorsement of Jeff and his crew, along with the Buster Crabbe product, we have since purchased a heater for the pool and Aqua-bot for cleaning purposed and the same service and reliability remained true. As this was a substantial investment for our family, we visited and spoke with many pool companies in the Springfield area. Our family truly believes that the outstanding quality, workmanship, service, reliability, and follow-through offered by Jeff and Buster Crabbe Pools are the best value in the Springfield market.

- David – Home Owner

I had a 18 x 36 pool installed by Jeff, Buster Crabbe Pools in the winter. My wife and I were very pleased at the way the construction work progressed. There was minimal damage done to the lawn surrounding the pool and a good job of putting the yard back together after the pool was dug was done also. The concrete work was excellent. One small section had pitted out because of freezing, it was broken up and replaced at no charge to me. The pool has operated without any problems at all. There have not been any structural problems that I have found or any deficiencies in the pumps or the entire system. We have had a question about chemicals, algae and so forth and Jeff has always been available for consultation and given us advice that worked. In summary, wer were very pleased with our pool that was installed by Jeff of Buster Crabbe Pools and have been subsequently pleased with the service that has been rendered and with the quality of the pool.
