Our name may be new, but our experience runs deep. We’ve been building spectacular, award-winning swimming pool projects all around Central Texas for nearly 35 years. All our projects are completely custom, with emphasis on such advanced features as vanishing edge, perimeter overflow, hillside installations, and other challenging installations.
And unlike most pool builders, we have extensive experience in the commercial swimming pool and commercial fountains design and construction arena. We have dozens of projects all around greater Austin which can easily be viewed at your convenience.
Our Skills and Certifications
Our lead designer and construction GM Sandy Vollentine holds a “Certified Building Professional” certification (also known as “CBP”) from The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals. This certification requires years of experience and extensive training in the proper way to design and build Watershapes of any kind. And here’s a shocking fact – There are more than 100,000 pool builders in North America, yet as of this writing, less than 1000 have this certification. That puts Aquatic Reflections Pools in the top 1%!
While skills and expertise are important, even more important is how the finished product looks. And that’s where we really shine. Take a look at our gallery, and you’ll see there is nothing “template” or “cookie-cutter” about us. Every project has its own unique design, style and features that make it stunning and one-of-a-kind. And while most of these designs come directly from us, we also work with homebuilders, architects and landscape architects to bring their designs to life.
Our Construction Techniques
Presuming you don’t know much about advanced pool construction techniques, we’d like to offer this simple analogy. If you’re looking for a four-door automobile with electric windows, leather seats and a nice stereo system, you can pay $30,000 for a Kia, or you could pay $90,000 for Mercedes. Both cars will get you from point A to point B, but your enjoyment and pride of ownership will be dramatically different.
The same is true with swimming pools. You can take a chance, cut corners, and get a cheap pool from a low-budget builder. But you’ll never get the same enjoyment and pride of ownership that come from buying a truly high-quality, well-designed and well-built waterscape from Aquatic Reflections Pools. We don’t build the cheapest pools in town, and we don’t want to. We build a product that is beautiful and robust, and built with the highest quality materials that will stand the test of time.
