Owens Custom Pools
Building Functional Art
My dad started Owens Pools in Jasper Oregon in the late 1960's and building pools has been our family business ever since. I grew up running around on build sites, learning the art and craftsmanship of building quality swimming pools.

We specialize in custom projects including stainless steel gunite hybrids, gunite, and all tile poured concrete hot tubs. We also offer a variety of vinyl liner swimming pools and vinyl liner replacements.

We only use the highest quality materials available. Including proudly offering Jandy equipment packages on all our new builds with a generous 3 year warranty.

He fixed "The Other Guys" mistakes! by Pool contractor-2011-08-22
After having another Eugene pool repairman refinish our pool and making a HUGE mess, David stepped in and totally fixed the problems, plus made our pool beautiful!! He was very easy to work with. We would highly recommend him!!

Dream Spa 2011-03-01
I met David at a home show almost two years prior to actually starting my project. He was very informative and never pushed a sale. He answered every question patiently and gave me information that I wouldn't have known to ask about as well. When it was time to make my choice he won hands down. He custom built the spa to our design and worked in the worst weather conditions to get it done. He continues to be available for questions and concerns. He pops in when needed. I found a great spa guy and gained a friend in the process :)

A Super Great Pool Master -2011-02-10
We had bought a house that we could put in a pool for our daughter who has a chronic pain condition. We were using the only local pool guy, signed his contract, money down, then He backed out. I did not know what to do. Then came Dave to the rescue. Dave came from out of town, and gave us so much knowledge that we knew from the get go he was our man! His knowledge about the pool industry was amazing. He did an awesome job meeting our needs, and the needs of the job. He also worked great with our other contracters for our house addition. Dave delivered on everything he said he would plus more. He not only saved us for doing the pool,we had a lame floor guy walk off the job, Dave knowing I couldn't move my daughter in until it was done, Stayed and installed it with us! Dave's work ethic and true kindness is very evident! He goes the extra mile, and never left anything undone, even when it wasn't his job to do. I would highly recommend Dave for any and all pool jobs! Super Guy!

Great to work with! 2009-01-17
David Owens is great to work with! He was able to install a beautiful pool that meets our needs. We had done some research, but David patiently shared his knowledge and let us decide. He did the whole job and stayed within our budget. We would recommend him to anyone considering a pool. We love our pool!

To Whom It May Concern by maui.red-2009-01-13
I live on the beautiful paradise island of Maui, Hawaii. Over the last three years, I had been looking for a swimming pool contractor here on Maui, one that had a record of high quality work at a reasonable price. After a year or two, I called my brother in Salem, Oregon and he recommended Mr. David Owens of Oregon Water Effects. David was able to design a very creative simple design that met my requirements and budget. After just a few weeks, we had a contract in place, and Oregon Water Effects shipped the entire pool, except for the concrete work to Maui. He then flew over with only one helper in May of 2008, and the two of them had water in the vinyl lined beautiful pool in 10 days with all solar heating, and pumping filtration equipment installed. The pool is absolutely beautiful and I can give Oregon Water Effects the perfect recommendation for any pool requirement in Hawaii.###Sincerely###Red from Kihei/Wailea, Maui, Hawaii

Quality and Service by jump-2009-01-09
Dave is a hard working honest guy who has an exceptional eye for detail. It is not often that a person can get those qualities AND the finished job for the most reasonable quote but I am here to say, that in the case of Oregon Water Effects, you do get both. The best job at the best price with a personal attention to detail is what I have come to expect in dealing with Dave.

Got To Have One!! by TMinnick-2009-01-07
When we decided to add a pool to our back yard we didn't know where to go...... I found Dave in the yellow pages and set up a meeting. The information he provided the first time we met was incredible!! We had spent weeks researching on the internet, and didn't learn half of the information he provided. Needless to say he helped convince my husband that vinyl liner was the way to go. We got the quote, submitted our permit, and had the pool installed and full of water in under 6 weeks. We only had a few weeks left before the cold weather came, but we continue to enjoy the light glowing in the night, and listening to the waterfall. We can't wait for summer to come...... next year we want to install a winter heater so we can enjoy it all year!! We had looked at at least three other companies in the area prior to Oregon Water Effects and I can't repeat enough how knowledgeable and competent Dave and Travis are. I would recommend them a hundred times..... and I am working on it!

In today's economy especially we are glad for the investment we made in our home and our family. ###Raising 4 boy's with a pool is a blessing, not to mention all the great gatherings the adults have in the luxury of our beautiful pool and patio put in by Dave at Oregon Water Effects.###He is very knowledgeable in the pool business, very accessible should we need service.###We like the fact that we don't have to travel to have a vacation.###GREAT FAMILY FUN!!!######Sincerely,######Dave & Holly Carothers###Mack, Jedd, Vann & Luis too!

Replacement liner by Swimmer-2009-01-05
Dave Owens installed a new liner in our pool, fabricated steps and new cowling. The results are far better than the original design. I would not hesitate to refer Oregon Water Effects and Dave Owens to anyone. We are so happy with our beautiful "new" pool.
