“We had interviewed several pool builders in our quest to find the ideal contractor for our backyard pool project. Having heard a lot of critical feedback from our friends and neighbors with respect to their experiences with contractors, we wanted to ensure that we wouldn’t face the same problems with our proposed project. We finally settled on Jeff Rosenstrauch of Athena Pools to build our pool, spa and deck.
Not only did he come highly recommended, Jeff was very personable and possessed a level of expertise that exceeded that of any of the other pool builders we met with. In preparing a design for our pool Jeff was very attentive to our needs. In addition, with his background in engineering, he was able to provide innovative suggestions to build upon our initial requirements.
Throughout the entire project we were continuously impressed by Jeff’s professionalism, attention to detail, use of quality materials & construction and exceptional customer service. We often saw him wandering around our backyard in the early hours of the morning or late in the evening inspecting the work that had been done. If he noticed a problem, which was rare, it was usually fixed before we even became aware of it. In the end Jeff delivered a beautiful, high quality pool. Moreover, he did it on time and on budget.
We are extremely pleased with the backyard oasis that Jeff has created for us. We are even happier to have not only found the ideal pool builder but also develop a friendship that we know will last for years to come.
Hats off to Jeff and his team at Athena Pools for a job well done!“

“Complete satisfaction!!!! Those are the words that best describe my experience with Jeff and Athena Pools. From the first day I met Jeff to now as I sit on my pool deck drinking a cold beer and marveling at the finished product, I am completely satisfied with the transformation of my backyard. Jeff was able to take my vision from a somewhat vague idea to reality. The end product is even more striking than I could ever have imagined!!!
Jeff’s attention to detail came through and differentiated Athena from the other pool companies that I interviewed during my selection process. Athena’s proposal was complete with no hidden costs. Jeff was onsite overseeing every aspect of the construction process from helping with the HOA approvals, to dealing with all the permits, to coordinating all the workers from the first day throughout the entire process. And Jeff continues to be available even after the pool is finished. I was amazed when I received an email from Jeff a month after my pool was finished reminding me that a freeze was expected that evening and to remind me how the automatic freeze protection worked. That is outstanding customer service!!!
I want to thank Jeff and Athena Pools for transforming my backyard into a destination where my family and friends can enjoy countless hours of fun. Jeff and Athena Pools did an amazing job!
A Completely Satisfied Customer!”

“If you are interested in building a pool, I highly recommend Athena Pools. Jeff was able to tailor a pool to our specific needs. Jeff is knowledgeable, honest and has integrity. The pool construction quality is top of the line. We were very pleased with the entire process and absolutely love the outcome. Our Pool was built on the steepest hill in Austin ….Jester Blvd which is no easy task”
Ben and Debbie Rosenberg (Jester Area)
“We think Athena Pools is amazing! We’ve heard so many horror stories about pools and pool builders, and people not doing what they say they’re going to do. But Jeff did everything he said he was going to do and more.
Jeff was very patient during the design process as he listened to our needs and came up with a proposal that met our requirements. Communication throughout the construction process was awesome. He called me every day to let me know what was going to happen that day.”
Athena Pools has truly been a pleasure to work with! Their attention to detail is outstanding and their finished product has exceeded our expectations!
I highly recommend Athena Pools.”

“Meticulous. Precise. Quality. These are the three words we use most when describing to others how we feel about Athena Pools and Jeff. Jeff recently completed the redesign and construction of our backyard, which included our pool, an Oklahoma deck, a customized multi-tiered bar with built-in custom cabinets and green egg holder, an outdoor fireplace and barbecue, all electrical needs and the surrounding landscaping and lighting.
Having never done such a project (but having spoken with others who have), we were prepared for the numerous problems and issues we were bound to face. However, with Athena and Jeff, it all went remarkably smoothly.
We were well informed of the progress throughout and there were no surprises. Also, three months after the construction has been completed, we have ZERO warranty issues. Everything works extremely well and has FAR EXCEEDS OUR EXPECTATIONS.
When you hire Athena Pools…..you are hiring Jeff who will ensure your project is done correctly, precisely and to your complete satisfaction. We can’t thank Jeff enough for the time, effort and energy he put into changing our backyard into a true destination and a place that will provide our family countless years of enjoyment.
We have nothing but the highest respect and praise for Athena Pools.“

“Before we met Jeff, we spent a year interviewing six other pool builders. Jeff was referred to us by a friend who had a great experience with him. Since we still were not totally satisfied with the builders we had met, we decided to give Jeff a look. It took only one meeting with Jeff to recognize that he was different than rest…in a good way.
First, he is not a salesman. He comes across as genuine and honest. Second, he is an engineer and truly wants to build a durable pool for you and knows how to do it. Third, he has a great sense of humor and was a lot a fun to work with.
The design phase went well. We knew what we wanted and Jeff put together a design with ease. He recommended some changes which we went with and are happier for it. His proposal had no hidden costs and factored in our finish choices.
The pool construction phase was continuous, without interruption. After just going through building the house, this was refreshing. His subcontractors were respectful of our property and kept the worksite clean. Jeff was onsite pretty much every day and kept us updated frequently. With any project like this, there are going to be challenges. Jeff met these head on; with no hesitation. We now have an amazing pool which we absolutely love. We give Jeff our highest recommendations.“

“My wife and I recently completed a pool with Athena Pools. Although we were apprehensive of the entire process prior to getting started, Athena Pools put us at ease with its professionalism and emphasis on quality construction. We met with a number of companies to determine the best fit and Jeff at Athena nailed it with the design. His background in engineering made the construction process smooth.
There was never a day that Jeff was not on site overseeing the construction and the pool including a large deck was finished within the three months that he had promised. Whenever there was an opportunity to improve the design of the pool, Jeff would bring it to our attention and provide a number of different options to pursue.
The end result is we are extremely happy with the pool and have great confidence in the engineering and equipment that went into it. Jeff is forward thinking, detailed oriented and someone you should contact if you are considering building a pool.
The pool has been great. I can’t imagine not having one (in over 100 degree temperatures).”
Brian and Cynthia Donnellan (Steiner Ranch)
“We just finished the process of building a pool with Athena Pools and are very happy. We really felt Jeff listened to our concerns and suggestions and came up with a great design that met all of our needs and stayed within our budget. Jeff was great about outlining all the costs associated with building a pool and let us choose how we wanted our money spent.
Jeff was always available to us and at the job site almost every day throughout the entire process. Athena Pools is incredible at vendor management. The pool took 6 solid weeks to build. There wasn’t a day that went by that a sub-contractor was not at the pool working on it. We had a great experience and are truly enjoying our pool! We have recommended Athena Pools to all our friends who are considering putting in a pool.“
Shayne and Kevin Baker (Steiner Ranch)
“When I decided to shop for a pool contractor I did so by talking to my friends and neighbors and asked for referrals. Athena Pools was one of many that I received. On the strength of these recommendations I contacted Athena and 5 of the other pool companies.
I was impressed right from the start by Jeff knowledgeable, professional, and easy going approach. Jeff is the only contractor that I met with who made me truly feel like he had my best interests at heart and would work with me to give me the most pool for my money.
Jeff conducted the construction of my pool the way that he would have done it had he been putting in a pool in his own backyard. He was there every step of the way. His workers treated my property with respect and were very tidy. Jeff left nothing to chance and paid minute attention to every little detail. When he was done, I had a product that lived up to every expectation that he set before, during and after the construction, and more.
It has been a year since my pool was completed and Jeff has continued to go above and beyond to make sure that I am satisfied. He has been readily available to answer any questions and address any concerns. The extent of which has been a burnt out light which he promptly and courteously took care of.
I highly recommend Jeff and Athena Pools. I would use him again in an instant.“
