We are a family business that began in 1978 when Don Combs built his first pool at his home. That first project evolved into a family effort to build and service custom liner pools throughout Greater Cincinnati. Don and Kay Combs began the operation and their adult children, Ashley and Adam, each have 25 years of learning, doing and leading the business to the successful levels of today.

Ashley has over 10 years of design experience stemming from an education in architectural interior design in California. She loves a creative challenge and strives to assist homeowners visualize what they want. Adam has had the benefit of working with his father to learn the ropes of construction. Adam is key in project management and leading the service crews.

Other staff members, Kim, Adam B. and Adolfo are also very dedicated to the spirit of the business focusing on customer relations, service and product understanding.

We want to be your best referral.

We enjoy meeting every customer and helping them create the backyard of their dreams. Our mission is to bring a sense of care, excitement and attention to detail to every pool we build!

Ashley began working with Aqua-Tech as a teenager in the retail store helping her mom. She moved to California for 6 years where she acquired an interior design degree and worked in the architecture/interiors field. She moved back in 2008 and began working with Aqua-Tech again. By popular demand, Ashley started a valet service, cleaning pools on a weekly basis. Her role has evolved into design development and client relations. She is usually in the store with her dog, Haley, not far behind.

Together, Don, Kay, Ashley and Adam bring a vast array of experience to the clients they serve. We strive to create a family friendly environment from their door to yours!


Aqua-Tech Pools has been one of the leading custom pool builders in the greater Cincinnati area for over 35 years. Family owned and operated since the beginning, Aqua-Tech takes great pride in their craft of creating unique and welcoming backyard environments for families to enjoy.

We understand that people have many options in the building market today, which is why we go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are informed and satisfied from the initial design to completion. If you are considering a pool, give us a call or better yet, stop in and see us!
