About A-Tex

A-TEX is a locally owned and operated business since 1973. Here in the heart of South Austin, you will find the best quality hot tubs/spas, above ground swimming pools, swim spas, and all of the chemicals & accessories you will need. We also provide expertise maintenance, service, and repair for both pools and hot tubs. Each year beginning in October, we open our eclectic boutique style Christmas store. We have a beautiful selection of Christmas items including pre-lit Christmas trees, lights, unique ornaments, & a huge variety of decorations. We also offer handmade wreaths, garlands, & we’ll even go to your home & decorate. Here at A-TEX South we pride ourselves in truly being a part of the Austin community. We have contributed to The Austin Children’s Shelter, The Shriners, The Austin Zoo, The Settlement Home, & Honor Flight.

We are not “Sales People”,
we are your neighbors & hope to see you soon.
