Reviews in Minneapolis to Install Ponds

APond King Water Gardens
In the fall of 2011, I installed a pond in my backyard as a do-it-yourself project. It has a river, waterfalls, 300 gallon pond, and a wetland area for the birds to bathe. It turned out ok, but there were a few things I didn't do very well by myself and I needed a professional with which to brain-storm improvement ideas. In the spring of 2012, I called Nick, at Pond King Water Gardens, to get his advice. Upon viewing my pond he was very gracious in his comments and offered suggestions to address my concerns; one of which was that it looked too and quot;boulder-yand quot;, and another was that I didn't think I made it deep enough. He also offered suggestions about things I didn't even consider, for example, adding an automatic top-off valve in the skimmer to replace evaporation, putting in a backflow preventer in case of a power outage, and adding a second pump for the bird bath area. He listened as I painted a picture in his mind of the features I wanted for the pond. My vision was to create a Northern Minnesota retreat. I wanted it rustic and wild as opposed to formal and manicured. He gave me wonderful ideas and a quote for the re-do. Since I had many items that needed and quot;fixingand quot; he gave me the prices a-la-cart so I could fit it in my budget; do a little now, and a little later. I decided on implementing ALL of his ideas! He wrote up a quote and provided a time frame for completing the work. It took two laborers working eight hours to finish it in a day. We provided the electrical needs. In the spring of 2013 I called Nick to thank him for making my pond beautiful and to hire him again, this time to make the pond portion bigger. This required a complete tear-out of the first pond. To shave a little money off the price I removed all the boulders and the liner; basically tore it apart myself. He had a and quot;clean slateand quot;. We kept the original design, but with the pond now being 2300 gallons! The water feature consists of four waterfalls, a streambed, a wetland area, large pond, water plants, fish, and lighting to enjoy it in the evenings. Since this is an outdoor project he and his crew were at the mercy of Mother Nature. The months of April and May were cold, snowy, and into June, rainy. Even though his estimate for completing the project was one week, the weather stretched it into three weeks. The whole time he kept in touch with me regarding days they could work. On the rainy days he kept the project site covered in tarps so as not to create too much mud. It was exciting to watch our vision materialize. His motto is: and quot;Works of Art, One Yard at a Timeand quot;. He is an artist and he brings the customers' vision to life. He is very knowledgeable about all things and quot;pondand quot;; from the biological balance to the placing of the boulders, to plant life and fish, his ponds are as close to being natural as if it were placed there by nature itself. I highly recommend Nick and Justin to create your water feature. You will not be disappointed.

FJust Sprinklers
My 80 year old mother diligently looks after a backyard “pond” that had been a pet project of my now deceased father. The pond liner recently ruptured and the water level was becoming dangerously low. Just Sprinklers sent a crew over to rescue the fish and water lilies (at a cost of $1272) and to provide an estimate for building a new pond. My mother did not like the proposed design or the estimated price tag (about $12,000). On my mother’s behalf, my brother spoke with the designer (Richard) and was told if we were not interested in the rock-heavydesign proposed, Just Sprinklers would not be interested in the project. When asked about the price, Richard advised that even the laborers were billing out at $80 per hour. My mother chose a different company to do the pond just as she wanted ($1800 complete) and that is when the fun begins. When my mother tried to arrange to have the fish and lilies put back into the new pond, she was advised they would “gently” place the tanks in her driveway and that she would be responsible for getting them back into the pond. I attempted to reach the owner, John Seaver, four times and never received a call back. I finally got called back by a different employee, Johnny, and was told that because they didn’t build the pond or approve of the approach of the people that did, they would no longer be responsible for returning the items into the pond. When pressed, Johnny told me he had no problem returning the fish, but that the lilies would have to done by someone else as Just Sprinklers did not want to risk damaging the pond liner by placing the heavy pots back into the water. When Just Sprinklers did return the items, they left everything in the driveway. Mother spoke with the man that delivered them and had him call the office to see if someone was coming over to put the fish back in the pond and was told no one would be coming. My elderly mother obviously was in no position to do anything and the gentleman told her he knew how to do the fish and would be happy to help. The gentleman soon got a call from Johnny and was told if he helped my elderly mother, he would be fired. Johnny, apparently not one to be inconvenienced by the truth or his previous commitments, was bound and determined to pay back my mother for not choosing his group to do the pond. Luckily for my mother, six neighbors came to the rescue and they were able to get the lilies and fish back into the pond. Not so lucky for Just Sprinklers, six neighbors got to see first-hand how Just Sprinklers tried taking advantage of an 80 year old woman. I’ve yet to hear from the owner and now could care less. I wouldn’t call this company to change the water in my gold fish bowl.

AThe Masons Touch
I bought a home that had a small man-made pond in the yard.  I had the pump, etc from the previous owner but the pond had been winterized, water removed and I had no idea how to put it together to start it up again in the spring.  Plus it was filled with water from the snow melt, leaves, etc.  I decided to purchase the "pond spring clean" special.  The Mason's Touch came out while I was at work and when I got home the pond water was clean, the pump was installed and the pond "fountain" working!   They even seemed to have moved around the rocks that were surrounding the pond to make it look better.  They did a great job and I would definitely use them again!

The pond took approximately one week to rebuild. Monday - Aaron arrived and removed the surrounding boulders and liner. He then installed new pad/liner/pad combination and created the new river section and waterfall. Tuesday - Aaron applied the cement to the liner and surrounding boulders. Wednesday and Thursday - We patiently waited for everything to cure. Friday - Aaron acid-washed the concert and started the pump. We sat by the pond all evening enjoying our new and improved water feature.

FDOLPHIN POOL & SPA
We contracted with Dolphin Pool and Spa folks to replace a liner on a pool of a new house we purchased. The install was shoddy. They left rocks, debris and a lot of wrinkles throughout the pool. The worst area being the steps to the pool with horrible wrinkles and the liner pulling away for the pool wall. They had to come out multiple times but only after having a difficult conversation or text exchange. They also ripped our pool cover while removing it to perform replacing the liner. We ended up having to map each and every area there was debris under the liner prove to the company there was indeed debris under the liner. Over 30 items of debris. We also discovered during the pool floor inspection that they had not repaired issues with the pool concrete which was part of their proposal and cost. The next larger issue was regarding the warranty of the liner and the liner itself. I asked the company repeatedly for warranty documentation and was given a link to only the terms of the warranty coverage and a statement that their company covers the warranty and registers the liner for us. Called the company that made the liner and they have no record for 'our' liner, the company registering a liner or us. So, I then asked for the serial number for our liner. And here's where everything started to fit into place as to why the company did not want to provide us with the serial number or actual warranty information.... You see we selected this contractor because of a promotional upgrade on the liner. It was an upgrade from a 20mil liner to 28mil. We even informed and confirmed with the contractor that the liner we selected through him qualified for the promotion upgrade and because of that, we approved their proposal. We wouldn't have ever selected them without this promotional upgrade. I had the contractor confirm that they had installed 28mil pool liner, the contractor confirmed that they had installed a 28mil pool liner, so I then called the manufacturer with the serial number to confirm warranty and liner specs. It turned out the contractor didn't install a 28mil pool liner, they installed a 20mil liner. Reached out again to the contractor, the response was not good. Definitely one of the worst contractor experiences I have ever had. I would suggest looking elsewhere for your pool and spa needs.

ATHE POOL STORE
It went great. They replaced my above ground pool liner as it was an insurance claim. They originally installed our pool in 2003. They have been great for customer service and any repair work. I buy most of my pool chemicals there and the staff is great. If you have a doughboy pool, I would strongly recommend The Pool Store. Keep up the great work.

I called for an estimate for a pool liner replacement. I was told that since I didn't buy the pool from them, they were not willing to perform this for me.

FSWIMSAFE POOL COVERS
I should've trusted my dog. He hated him. We ordered a pool liner from him in April 2019. I texted and called after the weather cleared up in May. He rarely responded and when he did say he was going to show up he didn't. Always had some sort of excuse like shipping or he received the wrong item. In the end the liner didn't get installed until mid August and it did not go well. The liner kept falling into the pool as water was added. He left the old liner laying in my grass after saying he would get rid of it. He never showed up to close the pool after weeks of asking. If you see Rick, run. The low prices he quotes is just not worth it. To make things worse, our liner is falling again and we need to find someone else to handle the warranty.

ALyle Davids Construction
I've used Lyle for over 20 years whenever our pool needed something. From pool closings in the fall to new liners and replumbing lines under concrete in the spring, they have done great work.

Recent Review: He was here when he said he was going to be and he did a wonderful job. The liner looks great, there are no wrinkles and the stairs on the pool look better than they ever have. I was going to have a party and needed the pool and he made sure it was done quickly.

Recent Review: I will use Kalifornia Pool and Spa in the future based on a visit and estimate from the owner.  I was impressed by the fact that he assessed our situation and recommended we hold off on spending any money right now because the condition of our pool was not as critical as we thought.  He was obviously respectful of our needs ahead of making a sale for himself.

Recent Review: I had got bids from several other firms, but selected Custom based on factors including responsiveness and price.  Ginny is one of a kind. She knows the business inside and out.   Incredibly responsive and she's going to do what she says.  I'd recommend giving strong consideration to Custom on major pool projects.  The pool project was taking place at the same time as other projects and it was well coordinated.  Custom came out early this year (the project was done a year ago)  to resolve a small issue - essentially standing behind what they had done.

Recent Review: We came home from vacation and our pool was green. We couldn't see the top step( that has only 2 in of water). spent quite a bit of money to kill whatever was growing in the water. The guys at the store were amazing. We cleared the pool, but i had to shock it everyday. I missed two days and we were back to square one. I was getting frustrated. Chris thought the next thing to do is drain the pool and start from scratch. Pat (the owner) offered to do this service for free. Pat actually came out and placed a vacuum in between the wall and the liner while the pool was being drained and refilled. I have a pool supply shop 5 miles from my house. I still drive out to little canada, because i know they will take good care of me. Chris is the go to guy. He is so knowledgeable and patient.
