Since 1984, Ocean Quest Pools has specialized in making unique and beautiful custom pools. Our job is to turn your dreams into an extraordinary backyard reality that will be enjoyed and admired by friends and family for many years to come. Whether you're looking for a simple, budget-conscious pool, or an exotic backyard paradise or a high-end commercial resort, we’ve done them all.
In our 30 years of business, we’ve built well over 2000 thousand pools. About half of these were built in partnership with some of Greater Austin’s finest professional home-builders. Anyone who has worked with home builders knows that they won’t tolerate pool builders that are dishonest, or cause delays, or produce a shoddy product. So our long-standing relationships with builders should be reassuring to anyone shopping for a pool builder.

Ocean Quest Pools is a member in good standing with the following industry associations:
APSP – “The Association of Pool Spa Professionals” (previously known as “National Pool and Spa Institute”)
APSP is the world's largest international trade association representing the swimming pool, spa, hot tub and recreational water industries.
APSP members adhere to a code of ethics in business and technical practices and share a strong commitment to the safe, healthful, and enjoyable use of industry products
Carecraft is composed of pool/spa designers, builders, and accessory supply retailers across the United States who have joined together to form a nationwide member-owned association.
Only select industry professionals are invited to join, and all must pass rigorous standards of quality control, reputation, and customer relations, in addition to customer concern of each company.
Carecraft was created for consumers to ensure the highest quality in all aspects of pool design construction.
“When you invest in a Carecraft member company, you are assured of the finest equipment and experienced workmanship, all at a price that is tailored to your budget and lifestyle.”
The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals™ (APSP) has developed the most comprehensive testing program for today's builders to demonstrate their mastery of the latest techniques in pool and spa construction.
Choosing a CBP means you're hiring a builder who has demonstrated knowledge of state-of-the-art pool and spa information, including:
- Construction standards approved by the American National Standards Institute.
- APSP workmanship standards.
- Government regulatory requirements.
- Compaction, excavation and soil.
- Stabilization techniques.
- Heaters, decks and other accessories.
"Our members build the most beautiful pools and spas in the world," says Bill Weber, President and CEO of APSP. "When consumers work with an APSP-certified builder, they can rest assured that the beauty is not just skin deep. Their pool and spa will be built using the most current standards and technology, and built to last."
Our company is a certified “Fast Track Pool Builder” with the City of Austin. This benefits you in two ways:
- We have a current Certified Building Professional™ on staff to review pool designs and plans, to ensure they meet national and international design standards, while also meeting the strict municipal requirements of the city of Austin.
- Our “Fast Track” certification with the city of Austin gives us “expedited treatment” when we submit our plans for approval. (Plans that might normally take 2 months or more for approval are now typically completed in less than 2 weeks.)
This unique program is a result of a joint venture between the Austin chapter of APSP (The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals™) and the City of Austin permitting department. The program was developed in 2012, and officially implemented in January 2013.
The Certified Pool/Spa Operator® certification program has delivered more training than any other program in the pool and spa industry since 1972, resulting in more than 200,000 successful CPO® certifications in 44 countries.
CPO® certification courses are designed to provide individuals with the basic knowledge, techniques, and skills of pool and spa operations. It covers 14-16 hours of information from the NSPF® Pool & Spa Operator™ Handbook (provided) and local codes taught by an NSPF® Instructor.
The APSP International Awards of Excellence honors APSP members whose pools, spas and water features represent some of the best designs in the industry.
The competition is open only to APSP member builders, designers, and service and retail firms. Many hundreds of entries are submitted each year, representing member firms from all over the world.
P.A.C.E. consists of pool builders from around the country, working together to improve existing products while planning future advancements for the automatic pool cleaning industry. A number of improvements in the in-floor industry are a direct result of this advisory board.
Each year the Pool & Spa News magazine researches all the major pool and spa builders in North America based on criteria such as longevity, customer satisfaction, quality ratings, awards, etc. and compiles a list of the Top 50 Builders in the pool and spa industry. We are privileged and proud to be on this list of the Top 50 Builders.
