today and he had time to swing by and do the repairs the same day. We have a fountain that came with our house and it's constantly leaking, flinging water on our stucco (which has been repaired once already and needs ...more to be repaired again because of the water) and in general, the fountain just isn't operating well. I was ready to tear it out, or move it, and asked
to come over to talk over my options. He said he thought it was definitely out of level (it's 3-tiers) and we had an ill-fitting hose, as well as a really dirty and clogged filter. After speaking with him I decided to have him service the fountain and am glad I did - it looks like a new fountain - I wish I'd taken a before and after. "
Rated Review by GAYLE P.
did a great job of cleaning my very dirty fountain and my pump which was so coated with gunk that it could not pump water to the top of the fountain. I had turned it off pending
arrival. Called him the ...more day before, he told me his availability, showed up on time and got right to work. Quoted me a price and stuck to it. Without my asking he rebalanced the fountain as well. His price is very reasonable. I would definately recommend and use him again. "

Sample Fountain Installers Reviews
"I called for an estimate to repair my backyard fountain. They were nice on the phone and had me email them photos. They did not call me back or respond to my email so I called them the next day and was told they couldn't open the pics but please text them. I did. I again got no response and I called them back. They said oh yes and told me they ...more could repair it and said someone would call me back to schedule a time for a technician to come out. No one every called me back. At this point I felt I was over their lack of responsiveness and decided to move on. Two months later I got an invoice in the mail for $161.00 for 'pump replacement'. I called and asked to speak with a manager.
, the owner, got on the phone and told me they had dispatched someone to fix it. When I said that never happened he got very defensive then told me to 'just tear up the receipt", to which I told him I had no intention of paying anyway. Bad service, unresponsive. Based on the previous review I'm glad they didn't come. If their work quality was anything like their service I would have been disappointed. "
by filling out their service request form on their web site. Weeks went by and no response. So I then called and left a message. No reply. I finally spoke to someone and was pleased that they sent a crew out the following week. The crew told me to expect a quote in a few days and that they could do the repairs the following week. Unfortunately weeks went by I never heard from
. So, I made a follow up call and was told that they would call me back. You guessed it, they did not call back. Strangely, about a month later
left a message that they had an opening and could come out to my house the following day and do the repairs, However, they still hadn't provided a quote for work. Anyway, I was out of town so called them back and left a message. Once again, no return phone call. So after three months, I gave up and hired someone else. "
has been our fountain cleaner for almost 10 years now, which says it all. He is efficient, fast & affordable. We use his services on a monthly basis to keep both of our fountains clean and running smoothly, free from algae, dirt and leaf debris. We & the birds are dedicated fans of
finished the project within the deadlines. They were very informative and patient. The plants were selected just as we requested. They were constantly giving us updates during the process of the projects and were very considerate. Upon the selection of the plants and design spent numerous hours with us to make sure we were happy ...more with all the details. I would definitely work with them again and recommend to anyone who needs landscape design, deck building services or pool construction. "
can do very good work. He just failed to do so on this job. I had reviewed several houses he had built prior to obtaining him to do this work.
My mother was sick and the work took a lot longer than he said................I felt pressured and once the work was begun, I felt I had to had it completed ...more to some degree because she was ill. She has since passed away.
was a horror and I did not receive 'justice' even with an arbitration. Mr.
was made to come back and do some repairs but I continue to believe that I did not get what I paid for and what I paid for the space was way too much.............he said the overruns were because I requested other work in a different part of the house. "
. Just a work of art.
We found this company, here on Angie's List, and proceeded to look through the photo gallery, on his website, to find what we were looking for in a design.
was ...more so easy to deal with and such a perfectionist that he built the feature as if it was in his own
. You could see he had pride in his work and built the feature so it will never sink and it will last forever with no maintenance if any. He was so easy to talk to and answered any of our concerns even after hours, always in contact with us.
I was home on one of the days and watched how he placed the rocks and stones. You can see his wheels working and moved stones around till they were just right. He also planted new colorful plants, that would have bold colors to make the area the wow factor. You could see he knew how a waterfall looked and sounded as if you were in the mountains by a
. Brilliant! He also placed lights and hid them within the feature. He is tops in my book.
My wife and I had gotten one other estimate before
, and we knew
was who we wanted and we were not disappointed at all with our decision. We would highly recommend
