If you're in the market for a pool, you owe it to yourself to speak with my friend Scott Aston of Edgewater Pools!

The team at Edgewater Pools has been building custom swimming pools in greater Austin for over 25 years. We build end to end custom pools, spas, & outdoor kitchens.

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT:

I’m pleased to announce that Edgewater Pools has a new partner!

Robert Hunt has retired due to health concerns and is no longer part of the company. We wish him the best as he moves on to the next stage for his life. Robert played a big role in the company and we’re thankful for his construction experience and expertise.

Brian Burns will is a new co-owner of the company and will be leading our construction and project management efforts moving forward. Brian has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. We’ll post more about Brian’s background on our website. 



As we prepare for 2022, we’ll be implementing several new initiatives including:
- Launching project management software
- Improving customer communication and frequency during construction
- A renewed focus on customer service
- Enhanced partnerships with key vendors and subcontractors

We’ll look forward to sharing more about these initiatives very soon. Otherwise, it’s business as-usual as we onboard Brian and he begins to manage the day to day construction needs of the company.

Building out in Liberty Hill... lots of space to spread out and build a pool. This one has a great Texas Hill Country feel. Nice folks to work with! Can't wait to come back and get some drone footage once the landscaping is in. It's going to look amazing.

When "cost" is the determining factor by which you choose a pool builder, this is what you get. An undersized catch basin, with a skimmer, and incorrectly shaped spillway. Most homeowners would have no idea how incorrect this is because it 'looks good'.

Think there's an engineered footer under there to keep this pool from sliding down the hill? Yeah, me either.

Clean and modern. Very beautiful. It was a challenge (and long wait) to get this tile, but I'd say it was worth it. White tile, white coping, white plaster - what a cool look. Our guys did an amazing job with the tile on those stools.

The ability to render better and better designs is really incredible.
Check out these two images for comparison. One is before and one is after a graphics update.
The pool ripples, the shadows are far more realistic, and the colors and textures are more life like. Pretty cool.

Beautifully finished out pool in Leander. We cut this pool back into the slope to deal with the grade of the yard. The pergola becomes a super visual feature that compliments the pool so well. The homeowner did a fantastic job with the color scheme.

Perfect Fit Pool

Pretty great pool, spa, and fire pit at the Ranch at Brushy Creek. This pool fit perfectly within the space available while staying out of the PUE and setbacks. With colored bubblers, this pool is off the hook at night.

Really a great customer to work with who was more than understanding of the tremendous obstacles pool builders are facing right now. We started this pool after several other pool builders in the same neighborhood started theirs. But we finished months before they did/will.

One of our amazing pool projects is for sale. We really enjoyed this project that included a pool, spa, waterfall, BADU swim jet, outdoor kitchen, and fire pit area... all with an incredible view.

Why has the cost of pools risen so much since last year?

Lumber is used in pool forms and excavation.

Lumber is used in pool forms and excavation.

[05/24/21]   In the last 26 days, we've seen only 10 dry. And only 3 with above normal temperatures. This is not the cycle of weather that any busy pool builder wants to see.

Thank you to our customers with pools in process, who have been understanding that the past few weeks have been a real challenge.

Phoenix-metro homeowners see pool construction delays; pandemic is culprit

A nationwide issue. Even in Arizona, pools are taking longer to build than ever. We’re dealing with issues that no builder has ever seen.

Y’all hang in there and be grateful you’ve got a pool in queue or in process.

Pool Supply Shortages Are Real - PoolMagazine.com - Get The Latest Pool News

Our post last night discussed the shortages we’re experiencing and how they’re driving cost increases in the industry. Worse they’re effecting build times and frustrating pool owners as much as pool builders.

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a great article that helps explain why it’s happening and provides context on the scale of the issue.

Pool Supply Shortages Are Real - PoolMagazine.com - Get The Latest Pool News Ongoing shortages continue to beleaguer the pool construction and pool service industry

Single-family homes increase in price by $36,000 due to lumber shortage: study 05/11/2021

Single-family homes increase in price by $36,000 due to lumber shortage: study

Lumber (forms)
Steel (rebar)
PVC pipe - schedule 40
Lime, Ash, Cement (concrete, gunite, shotcrete)
Plaster
Limestone
Sand
Valves
Equipment
Fittings
Chlorine
Acid
Tile
Glue/Epoxy

About the only thing not in short supply and going up in cost is the water in the pool. 💦

No joke, building pools right now I’d harder than ever. We spend time every day chasing orders, finding supplies, and explaining why progress is slower than normal.

We sure appreciate our customers who recognize the position we, like every other builder, are in and that much of this is out of our control. We watch a lot of pools go in around ours. Some go in faster, but many much slower. We hope the end product is worth the wait! 🏊🏼‍♂️🏊🏼‍♀️🏊🏼🤿👙🩳

Single-family homes increase in price by $36,000 due to lumber shortage: study A lumber shortage amid a red-hot housing market has caused the price of single-family homes to jump approximately $36,000 since last April, a new study finds.

One of out biggest challenges yet. The fire pit in the middle of this pool turned out great. The beach entry wrapping around the fire pit is a great. The elevated spa is was a fun way to deal with the grade of the yard.

Looks like all we need now is the actual fire pit. But, as many of you know, nothing is moving fast in the pool industry right now. Soon.

This one’s been finished for some time, but now that the landscaping is in, it’s great for photos. This is one of those yards that slopes back towards the house. By raising the pool to deal with drainage, we created seating around the front of the pool. Beautiful tile and porcelain veneer.

Our hearts go out to all of you with busted pool equipment. It's going to be a long road back to normal for some. But, you're not alone. The damage and destruction to pool equipment is wide spread across the area. Here are a few photos.

[02/16/21]   I’ve tried to respond to texts and phone calls from our pool owners for the past 48 hours. Love hearing from you all and am very sorry we’re all struggling with our pools. It’s all fixable. Take care of your families and home.

[02/15/21]   Update for our customers:

If you do not have power, you may want to consider draining your equipment and plumbing. This will only work if your pool equipment is higher than your bodies of water.

If this is the case, you can open the relief valve on top of your filter and open your pump baskets, this will break the suction in your system and the water should flow back down into your pool. This may help prevent damage to your equipment and plumbing as the water freezes inside them.

When the electricity comes back on hopefully your pump can re-prime and start working again. Although you may decide to shut the power off and wait until Friday to start your pumps up again. If you are going to try and re-prime your pumps, you may need to use a bucket of water to fill the pumps and help them prime.

Unfortunately, if your pool equipment is below your pool and spa, there may not be much you can do to drain your equipment.

[02/14/21]   Let’s see those icy pool photos!
