About Bluewater Pools


Since 1983 Bluewater Pools has been a family-owned and operated pool contractor serving the state of New Mexico, including Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, Belen, Clovis, Farmington, Las Vegas, Roswell, and Los Lunas. We provide quality pools for our residential clients including swimming pool design, layout, excavation, electrical and plumbing, as well as start-up training and overall maintenance.

Bluewater Pools goes to great lengths to satisfy our customers in Albuquerque and all over New Mexico. When you purchase a Bluewater Pool, the relationship we have with you doesn’t end with the completion of the pool. To us, it is just the beginning. The experience and value that comes from being in business for over 35 years with the same owner is a benchmark by which no other pool builder can compare.


We’ve also gone to great lengths to make sure we have all the necessary skills, talents, and licenses in house. In fact, to the best of our knowledge, there’s not another pool builder in all of New Mexico who has all of the following licenses in-house:

  • New Mexico Contractor’s license #31940
  • EE-98 Electrical Contractors License (up to 5000 volts)
  • MM-98 Master Mechanical license
  • GS-25 Swimming Pool Contractor license
  • MS-07 Swimming Pool Plumbing license
  • MM-02 For installation of gas lines
  • LP-09 Liquid Propane gas license
  • GB-98 General Contractor’s license

Unlike most swimming pools contractors in Albuquerque today who have forgotten the meaning of the word integrity, Bluewater Pools has not. We didn’t build our reputation in the industry by just paying lip service to the notion of customer service. Instead, we built an entire business focused on providing genuine customer care – one customer at a time.
