About Us

The JDO name has been synonymous with designing and building outdoor waterscapes since 1996.  We got our start in Monterey County, California installing ponds, water gardens, pondless waterfalls and river beds. Since moving to Central Virginia in 2013 we’ve mastered our craft to include designing and building custom and beautifully crafted pools, spas and outdoor living spaces. 

No two JDO Pools are alike as we strive to CREATE YOUR PERSONAL PARADISE designing pools that take into account your dreams and lifestyle. JDO Pools & Spas is proud to serve you from two locations Central VA along with the Northern Neck to offer ecoFINISH® High Performance Pool Coatings.   With our ecoFINISH® premium pool coatings we can extend the life of your pool and provide a 10 year warranty.

In addition, our relationship with you continues beyond the installation of your pool with on-going service maintenance and technical support. We are committed to the highest standards of excellence in each and every facet of our business and we look forward to serving you and your family’s needs.

In 2023, JDO Pools & Spas purchased Kilmarnock pool company Sevarg Pools Inc. While we have changed the company name to be consistent with our JDO Richmond location, we continue to operate in the Northern Neck of Virginia as a family-owned business designing, building, renovating and servicing pools to meet individual client / family needs.
