Our History

Burton Pools & Spas was established in April 1978 by brothers Dan and David Burton under the name Tallman Pools of Fort Smith. Its humble start began out of David’s garage with a few hand tools, one pickup truck, and a $7,000 loan from First National Bank. David was in charge of selling, advertising, paperwork, and accounts payable, while Dan supervised all pool construction. In September of that year, the business was incorporated under the name Burton Construction, and by 1979 the total business volume nearly tripled.

Always striving to have the best-constructed vinyl liner pool available to the area, Dan continued to improve his building method, and by 1981, Burton Pools & Spas had established a dependable reputation within the community, allowing Dan and David to expand their operation and rent a building at 1417 Dodson Avenue selling above ground pools and hot tubs. 

Throughout the years, the expansion into the retail market helped Burton Pools & Spas grow the business exponentially, which made it necessary to continue to find larger and better locations.

By 1993, Burton Pools & Spas had settled into two retail locations, in Fort Smith and Springdale, and since then has continued to thrive.

Everything they say they will do, they do. They treat you like family. We bought a pool several years ago, have been very satisfied with it, and with the service they give us. Just recently bought a spa. In just two months with a daily commitment, it has improved my health tremendously. I highly recommend getting one before letting yourself get into too bad of shape, with daily use it will really improve your quality of life. The employees are awesome, its wonderful to see a smiling face!
