If You Can Think It, We Can Build It

There are plenty of people out there who don’t have a pool and wish they did. But we’re willing to bet there are just as many who look at what they do have and aren’t as inspired by it as they once were. Sound familiar? Don’t get us wrong — the pool looked amazing 10 years ago. It had all the bells and whistles and was likely the envy of the neighborhood.

But now its features, shape, and style seem outdated in comparison to the oasis your friends have down the street.

Homeowners should never be stuck with what they have or don’t have — especially when it comes to a pool. If you’re ready to create that backyard getaway or add oomph to what you’ve got, the sky’s the limit with one call to Bowen Pools.

“It’s important to me that no one feels like they are stuck with the same footprint they have now,” owner Chris Bowen said. “If you need a pool, or you’re not happy with what you’ve got, we can do it. We’re not afraid to think outside the box. We’ll put an entire team together to handle projects from start to finish.”

Bowen-Pools-Interior Word is spreading that this family-owned and operated pool company has already separated itself as a leader in pool construction and renovation services after just two years of being in business. That’s saying a lot considering the pool industry is firing on all cylinders and is highlighted by big names that have been around for decades.

But to Bowen Pools’ credit, they are hitting those bigger companies where it hurts with their motto of quality over quantity. Not only can they handle any construction need, but they love the challenge of renovations. That means everything from changing and upsizing plumbing to accommodate new water features, adding in tanning ledges, and even changing the shape of pools. On new construction, Chris and his team have a knack for taking the smallest idea and making it larger than life. They waterproof all concrete shells, offer in-floor cleaning, use higherend materials no matter the size of the job, and ensure proper hydraulics for all your plumbing needs.

“We’re really trying to let people know how good we are on the construction and renovation side of pools,” Chris said. “It’s what I personally enjoy, and I love being able to give our clients what they’ve wanted for so long. We are not just a coping, tile, and plaster company. We can do so much more.”

With that type of attitude, it’s no surprise residents all over Denton County are picking Bowen Pools for all their pool needs. Bowen Pools also specializes in spas, covered patios, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and landscaping. If there’s a problem with a construction job or a project requires extra attention, Chris makes you feel like his only customer.

“I’m also the project manager for new construction. So I’m at every job. If I’m not there, it is not difficult to get me out there to take a look,” Chris said. “We are following codes stringently, offering different packages for custom pools, and doing in-floor cleaning systems on all of our pools. There isn’t a project too big for us.”

Chris has wanted to be in the pool business as far back as he can remember and was even a lifeguard for four years in his younger days. When Lantana Living caught up with him, he was quick to share a story about how he got his first big break when the owner of the pool company that was remodeling his parents’ pool hired him as a service technician.

Chris worked there for five years cleaning pools, all while continuing to dream big of one day owning his own company. Unfortunately, that journey took a slight detour when Chris was injured on the job and couldn’t work.

“I took some time off and sold health insurance for a year and a half. I wasn’t making a lot of money, so I turned to my wife one day and said, ‘I think I’m going to quit my job and go back to cleaning pools. I always wanted to start my own company, so now is as good a time as any,’” Chris said. He and Kourtney now have a 10-week-old daughter named Emerson. “Kourtney was nervous at first, but it all worked out.”

Bottom line, the folks at Bowen Pools never stop learning their craft and would like to think their expertise in new construction and renovations is right up there with the best of them. All you have to do is pick up the phone.

“People want to enjoy their backyard. We want to give them that.”
