About Backyard Billabongs
Doug was born in New Zealand, and raised in Australia and Papua New Guinea.  He completed a four year apprenticeship to become a Qualified Machinist by Trade.  He also has skills in TIG, MIG, stick and oxyacetylene welding.  He is trained in hydraulics.  His father is a plumber, and he learned plumbing skills from him.  Doug has many years experience in those fields.  These skills give him a unique advantage in the pool service arena. He can fabricate parts specific for your set up; he can rebuild your used motor or pump, he can problem solve difficult plumbing issues.

Pool Experience:
He has over ten years experience in pools. He trained for several years under a Pentair, Jandy and Hayward warranty service contractor.  He sub-contracted for several years to the largest American Home Shield Warranty service contractor in this area at that time.  He currently subcontracts to several pool service companies in Tarrant County. He started Backyard Billabongs in 2011.  This experience means he knows the most common issues for each type of equipment.  He can also do things like reprogram control units so they are easier for you to use, and repair faulty electronics, saving replacement expenses. 

Backyard Billabongs is committed to bringing you the best in personalized pool care and equipment repair.  We work on all brands, all types and all systems.  We work with a set of reliable specialists we can refer you to for services such as swimming pool leak detection and repair,  replastering/tiling and more.  All service personnel we use are well trained and licensed.  Please refer to our Services page.
