If you are looking to renovate an existing pool or have a pool installed, look no further than Clint Pressler and his team at Cobalt Custom Pools. Clint listened to the ideas we had for updating our 30- year old pool and gave us practical advice on the changes he recommended. He gave us different options and did line item pricing so we could truly design the pool that met our budget and needs. The renovation team was friendly and professional. They showed up when expected and answered any questions we had along the way.

Thank you Cobalt Custom Pools for giving us the pool of our dreams!

I recently bought a house in Katy and decided to build my first pool for my daughters. I contacted Clint who came over to the house and took the ideas I had and made them into a beautiful reality. He also took the time to make sure it was right for my kids. Even just little things like I wanted to put a bubbler on the sun shelf and he suggested that I install two so they could each have one and play together. That worked out perfectly. He also made sure to update me constantly during the construction process and worked with me anytime I had design changes.

Along with the pool Clint also built an outdoor kitchen for me. He took the time to find brick that matched the exterior of the house and went as far as finding granite for the counter top that matched what was in the kitchen inside the house. This is the level of detail he provides and it shows up perfect in his final product.

Once the pool was complete if I had any questions about how something worked or pool maintenance Clint is always there to help anytime. The pool has been perfect and I would recommend Clint and Cobalt Custom Pools to anyone and have.

Thanks for everything Clint!

My wife and I recently relocated to Sugar Land. After our house was completed we decided to move forward with building our first pool. We had no idea what to expect in the process. Friends of ours recently used Cobalt to build their pool in Katy and gave Clint a good review. We called Clint and a few other companies for design ideas and price quotes. We chose to go with Clint Pressler and Cobalt Custom Pools. Not only did Clint come in with a competitive bid but he nailed the design vision my wife had on his first try. In meetings with the pool builders the passion and knowledge Clint has about his business really separated him from his competitors. When we signed our contract everything Clint told us he would do was done right and on budget. Even the timeline he originally quoted us for completion was on track despite dealing with 150 year rains. There were no surprises, no corners cut. He delivered us a custom pool and outdoor kitchen area. Clint uses quality tradesman throughout the building process and ensures everything is done right. Any issues that came up during construction were addressed and corrected to our satisfaction. Startup issues we’re handled in a timely manner. To date, if we have any questions about our pool, Clint is quick to respond. If you’re like my wife and I and know nothing about building a pool, I recommend you include Cobalt Custom Pools in your search for a custom pool designer and builder.
Clint, thanks for getting us in our pool before our first Houston summer hit. We absolutely love it.

I wanted to thank Clint for the excellent service he and his team provided us in May of this year. My husband and had been talking with Clint for over a year to up grade our pool equipment. During this time Clint was very patient with us answering any questions we had. Once we decided to go ahead with the upgrade Clint was right there and took care of everything (I mean everything) for us. He even hauled a way a old heater unit that we had to heat the pool that wasn’t working. Clint saw a U-Haul truck in the neighborhood and ask if he could use their dolly. Now that’s going above and beyond. But that’s Clint.

We will continue to us Clint for all our pool needs. I really feel he looks out for us. He makes sure the job is done and done right.
Lastly, I really appreciated the follow-through of service you provided while we were learning how to use the new equipment that was install. Clint even volunteered to come out and show us how to clean our filter when the time comes.
He was so responsive on text, emails even on weekends and late into the evening. Please thank your family for allowing me to take up so much of your time. I thank you very much for your commitment and passion for what you do. You’ve made the upgrade to our existing pool less intimidating on how to use it. To me, that’s a HUGE deal.
I would recommend Clint to anybody with a pool need new or old.

Thanks Clint !

I wanted to thank you for the excellent service you provided us this past fall when our pool pump and blower went out. I called you because you had submitted a bid to remodel our pool earlier in the year and I remembered how nice you were to deal with. In particular, you were very responsive to our needs and patient about explaining things. So when I had the issue with the broken equipment, you came right over, advised us on the most economic way to get the equipment we needed and quickly installed a new pump, blower and automated control system.

While we had not selected you for the remodel job, we ended up wishing we did. Now months later, you helped us out, with a great attitude, finding things the other pool company did wrong or took short cuts on and you fixed them for a very reasonable cost. There were a couple of missing check valves, you installed them. You scheduled an inspection with Hayward to make sure no damage had been done to our heater since there had been the possibility of gas back flow, when this was really the other company’s responsibility. The broken blower was still under warranty. The other company had installed it incorrectly and you took the time to replace it for us. The reason I will use you Clint for all my future pool needs is that I really felt like were looking out for us. It was about the job being done right, not who did it wrong.

Lastly, I really appreciated the follow-through of service you provided while we were learning how to use our remote control that went along with the new automated system for our pool and spa. It took us several weeks to figure it out, especially how and when the vacuum works with the pump and the spa modes. You were very responsive on text, even on Thanksgiving Day! And, there were a few trips to the house to double check programming as well. I thank you very much for your commitment and passion for what you do. You’ve made owning a pool much less intimidating for someone whose fairly new to it. To me, that’s a big deal. I would recommend you to anybody with a pool need. Thanks again!

Kathy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you help with the design and installation of our outdoor kitchen. You took the time to understand what our specific needs were, translated them to paper and ultimately an end product that was truly outstanding. Even removing a component that we didn’t need, reducing the overall cost. We are thoroughly enjoying our kitchen and should the need arise for additional work we definitely know who to call.

Thank you,
Mike Roth

My wife and I had actively discussed a pool for years and finally decided it was time. After talking to Clint, it was an easy decision to have Cobalt Custom Pools install it. The personable help Clint provided, listening to what we wanted (being our first pool) and allowing us to leverage his experience made the design phase simple. Throughout construction, Clint was on site regularly making sure the crews were on schedule, stayed in contact with us to answer any questions and making sure we were happy. The pool was completed 100% as agreed without “Any” issues or extra costs and “On Time”. We even through Clint a loop by adding a second construction project into the middle of the pool project. Clint worked with us and with our second contractor professionally aligning the multiple construction phases and was still able to complete the pool within the original time frame. The overall quality of construction through finish is superb. We spend so much time in our back yard now as it is so relaxing, we are still asking ourselves why we did not do this sooner. We highly recommend Cobalt Custom Pools if you are looking for a company that listens, understands your vision and that you can trust, give them a call.

Thank you again Clint,

My wife and I knew that when we bought our house we wanted to eventually get a pool.We finally decided to pull the trigger this year and began our research on pool companies. We knew absolutely nothing about pool companies or even the first thing about the process of building a pool. Luckily a friend of ours recommended Clint Pressler and Cobalt pools to us. Even though we had two other pool companies that we were considering, Clint Pressler was there for us either by phone, email, or text message. If we had questions while doing our research, even if it was very late at night Clint took the time to answer our questions and was always accessible. After about a month of research we decided to start the pool construction process with Cobalt pools. After the first week we knew we had made the right choice in pool companies. Cobalt pools and the sub-contractors associated with Cobalt pools were always on time and extremely professional. Clint Pressler also uses the same contractors for every pool he builds and therefor knows what kind of product will be built at the end of construction and knows that it will be a quality build. I can speak from experience that the crews that built our pool were 2nd to none and impressive throughout the entire process. Aside from the impressive construction process, I would like to also mention that Clint genuinely cared more about our happiness in the long run than his bottom line or how much profit he would make on our pool construction. A perfect of example of this was our decision to go with Pebble Tech instead of plaster inside the pool. We originally opted for plaster due to its cheaper price however Clint knew we would be much happier with Pebble Tech and therefor offered us “White Sheen Pebble” at a great price which allowed us to install Pebble Tech instead of plaster. I can’t tell you how happy we are with the look and feel of pebble Tech as well as its longevity compared to plaster. Once the pool was finished Clint was very hands on with all of the finishing touches from adding chemicals to taking us through Pool School. I know that even though we have a finished pool now and we are enjoying the pool everyday, Clint will still be there for us if we have ongoing questions or concerns about the pool. I would highly recommend Cobalt pools to anyone deciding on building a pool.

Thank You Clint for providing us with an awesome pool, we could not be happier.

We love our pool that Cobalt Pools built for us! I had to convince my husband to put in a pool and he is now so glad we did! Our backyard was a place we never spent time in, now we are in our lovely backyard enjoying our fabulous pool that Clint @ Cobalt pool built. Thanks for everything you did for us and making my backyard a great family gathering place! Thanks again Clint!

Sharon Bergeron

My husband and I shopped a couple different pool companies. Bottom line is Clint Pressler, with Cobalt Custom Pools, took the time to talk with us, was very honest, offered several suggestions, and gave us a lot more to think about – whereas the other company (well known) seemed distracted, more of a hard sale, and much less about us. Given the amount of money that goes into a pool, we really appreciated a more personal experience. It’s obvious after your first conversation that Clint is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does.

Our pool is now complete and the process was as painless as could be. All of the crews that came around were very professional and they always kept the job site clean. The quality of work is outstanding and I would highly recommend Cobalt Custom Pools to anyone! Thank you so much Clint – we love our new back yard oasis!!

Clint and his crew did a fabulous job on my pool renovation. When I first called Clint for an estimate he asked questions so that he would be able to give me an accurate estimate of the job. He listened to what I wanted done and why. We discussed several options and everything in his estimate was broken down and easy to follow. While his crew was at the house Clint checked in with me and kept me informed of what they were doing and their timeline. Of course during this time we discussed additional jobs that could be done but Clint always gave me an estimate of what those jobs would cost and never did them unless I said ok. It was very refreshing to work with Clint because he was always very professional. I would not hesitate to call him back to do additional jobs.

Mr. and Mrs. DeRose

I had a rather old pool that was in dire need of plumbing repairs, new coping, water line tile and plastering. As a widow, I knew I couldn’t trust what was for me was a very expensive project, to just anyone. I needed someone I could count on to do what he said he was going to do, and do it right. Being a managing agent for an upscale neighborhood, I have encountered numerous pool companies. It wasn’t until Clint Pressler of Cobalt Custom Pools walked into my office and presented a project for a homeowner, that I knew I’d found the right man for the job. After seeing what he was doing for another customer and listening to him talk, I knew I had found the right man for the job because of his integrity, knowledge, ability, and sincerity. I was not disappointed. When he said his crews would show up, they did. The work was done professionally, on time, and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. When asked, I always recommend Clint Pressler and Cobalt Custom Pools!

Lexie Hahn

After experiencing significant issues with our pool builder and in need of critical pool repairs, I found that not many pool companies were willing to step in and repair and refurbish our pool, hot tub, water falls and decking as needed. Eventually, we connected with Cobalt Custom Pools on a referral from our Katy, Firethorne neighbor. Clint proposed options for solutions, worked seamlessly amongst his staff, and communicated with us throughout the job. It’s nice to have a pool in Houston when you need it. Having an attractive, functional pool that doesn’t leak, and a reliable contact for all of the above…

The Hack Family

I hired Cobalt Custom Pools to remodel my 45 year old deck and pool. Clint assisted me in design and product selection. He stayed on budget and finished in the projected time frame. He has great attention to detail and works with the best subs in the business. The finished product exceed my expectations. I would recommend him and Cobalt Custom Pools to my friends and family.

Mr. Feinman

Cobalt Custom Pools is an exceptional pool company that we would highly recommend to all our friends and family who are looking to building or renovating a pool! From start to finish their excellence and expertise in the building process was superb! Clint Pressler, the president and owner of the company was personally involved in each and every step of the way and responded positively and promptly to all our concerns and requests. However, the most impressive and best part of working with Cobalt Custom Pools was their incredibly fast timeframe for completion of the pool. From signing the contract to my children actually swimming in the water, it took only 5 weeks! We had the fastest pool builder in the city without any compromise on the quality! Thank you Clint and Cobalt Custom Pools for such a great experience and good luck in the future!

Mr. and Mrs. Knobbe

We started out with Cobalt Pools/Clint Feb.2012 on pricing and design. We had a particular budget to which he worked with us to come as close as possible. We had also looked at 2 other pool manufacturers. Both of those pools mfgs basically laid the pool out and did not really listen to our needs. When you are paying a lot of money for a home addition / pool you would hope somebody listens to what you want. There were a lot of add ons by one of the companies which we did not ask for and there was very little interaction on our part for our pool design. They took over and we were not satisfied with their ideas and we quickly cut ties with both of them. But during the bidding process Clint educated us on what to ask for of the other pool companies wether it was a particular brand of pumps with a longer warranty etc. To me that earned my business in that he was looking out for us during the bidding process.
Clint was very professional and asked a lot of questions. He listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that we really liked. We then started the pool in late June and finished in late July. We are very pleased on how our pool turned out and it is exactly what we wanted. Another reason we liked Cobalt was because they put in a pool next door and I was very impressed with the work. Having had a pool at a previous home and gone through the building process, his was impressive. Clint never stops working with you and will do whatever you want. I hope you make Cobalt your pool company you will not be disappointed.

Mr. Whisenhunt

My husband and I had never gone through the process of building a pool before, and we had heard lots of nightmare stories about it, so we were very careful in who we selected. Clint at Cobalt Custom Pools came highly recommended to us by about 5 different people. The words that each person used were “incredible customer service”. Clint lived up to those words and made the overall experience a pleasant one. Even though we had some hiccups due to the crazy weather last winter, Clint weathered it all beautifully. Clint is someone that we really trust. We couldn’t be happier with the way the pool turned out.
Thank you, Clint!!!! –

Mr. and Mrs. Wiesen

Our experience with Cobalt Custom Pools was exceptional! We were referred to Clint at Cobalt from a friend that also built a pool with him. After meeting with several other pool builders we decided Clint was the one for us. From day One, Clint listened to my thoughts and ideas and helped our family design the perfect pool. He walked us through every step of the pool construction process, which was helpful since we were first time pool builders. It was important to us that we chose a builder that would be thorough in his work, use trustworthy vendors and great products. During the process Clint supervised the job to make sure the daily work was being done to our satisfaction. He also coordinated the addition of an outdoor kitchen and pergola to our home which completed our backyard. Clint completed his work with teaching us everything we needed to know about maintaining our pool in his “pool school.”

Overall, we have been extremely happy with our pool, we love it and so do all of our friends and family. We will continue to spread the word about Clint and his company for his professionalism, his exceptional work and continued communication even after our build.

Mr. and Mrs. Blach

Most important of all,
our experience with Cobalt Custom Pools was very positive. Clint is very good with customer service and explaining the process as we were pool novices. The process went very well and although we had some rain issues to deal with, the process moved forward continously. We are very pleased with the overall results. Clint was very good about sourcing other contractors we needed for other items not included as part of the pool itself. We would definitely recommend Cobalt Custom Pools.
Mr. & Mrs. Moritz

Dear Clint:
Just wanted to let you know that we are extremely pleased with our pool. Can’t believe it’s been almost a year since completion. The pool and equipment have performed better than expected. As you know, we built our first pool while living in southern Alabama and we were really impressed and pleased with our pool contractor (even considered giving him a call for this pool). But we can honestly say you have out-performed and exceeded what we thought before was the best. Not only did you perform the initial pool construction on schedule and on budget, more importantly, a year later everything is still performing perfectly and no complaints. We are also enjoying the lawn sprinkler system, mosquito misting system and landscaping that you installed! We often recommend Cobalt Custom Pools and will continue to do so.

Thanks again for the great job!!
Mr. & Mrs. Hayden

My wife and I met with 8 different pool companies over the course of a year before we finally decided to put our trust in Clint at Cobalt Pools. We certainly were not disappointed. The build process went flawlessly and the service and follow-up after completion has been fantastic.

Having met with multiple pool companies, I had a very good idea of the exact dimensions and design of a pool I was interested in building. In fact, I had detailed pool plans and specifications drawn up for me by an independent engineer. I was very pleased with Clint’s review of our plans and his recommendations for ways to improve our design. He was certainly the most knowledgeable builder we spoke with and was able to clearly communicate how the build process would go and the exact time it would take.

The pricing of the pool from Cobalt Pools was very competitive with all the builders we met with. In fact, when I analyzed the exact dimensions of all the bids as well as the type of equipment and additional features, I was able to determine that we were going to get the best deal for our dollar with Cobalt. I was also extremely pleased that they stayed exactly to the price I was quoted. There was never any “nickel and diming” about small changes we made during the build process

I have and will continue to recommend Clint and Cobalt Pools to anyone who is interested in building a quality pool. It is certainly a huge project and it is definitely important to have a builder who is knowledgeable and trustworthy on your side…

Thanks for everything
J. O’Neill

Just wanted you to know that we are extremely pleased with the entire process we experienced with Cobalt Custom Pools. Not only did the pool exceed our expectations, but the services rendered were professional and well managed. The pool works as promised and designed. I thought this process was going to be tough, but you and your crew made it easier than online shopping.
I will recommended you to other people looking for a pool. I thought that good customer service was a thing of the past…but you and your team have set the standard for today and the future.
