The Fox

When it comes to building your dream backyard pool, at Fox Pools & Spas, we know that you have choices. That’s why we work so hard to provide the Fox Difference!

What is the difference you ask? It is a multitude of little things but mostly we treat our customers like family. We pledge to you that we’ll provide you with the best service, the highest quality equipment and that we will stand behind our word!

When it comes to service, why?

  • We have knowledgeable and well-trained technicians with over 70 years of combined experience.
  • We have multiple service crews so we can handle service calls in a timely manner.
  • We do whatever it takes to make it right.
  • Because we deal with the top manufacturers in the business, they stand behind their warranties which means quick turnovers on claims if any.
  • You know our crews are who they say they are because of our Fox uniforms and vehicles.

Our Story

The First Generation

In 1971, Jesse and Darline Tharp founded Fox Pools & Spas in the basement of their Hendersonville, TN home. A lot has changed since then, but the two original tenets remain the same. The determination of the Tharps to treat their customers like family and to only sell high-quality products is what made the business flourish back in the 70’s and what has kept it growing since then.

The Second Generation

Service was a key factor for the Tharps and led to their great success. They have always serviced what they sell. Their focus and our continued focus remains to sell only high-quality products. Two great examples are our Fox vinyl liner in-ground pools and the Big Green Eggs. Darline and Jesse raised their two children in the pool business. They grew up learning the business values their parents believed in. Their daughter, Lisa Ezell and son Jay Tharp head the business today and Fox Pools & Spas has fulfilled the backyard dreams of thousands of families in the greater Nashville area.

The Third Generation

Today, we remain a family owned business and the third generation (Alex & Jessica) is learning the business and its values from Lisa & Jay. It isn’t often that you see businesses with this kind of longevity – but that is who we are. We remain dedicated to treating customers like family, selling only high-quality products and servicing what we sell.
