HACIENDA POOLS
Recent Review: We are so happy with Rick at Hacienda Pools for making our pool a dream come true. After looking through several sites that compared different pool builders, we narrowed our list to 5 and set up appointments. He was on time for our appointment and laid out the good , bad and the ugly of pool design, building and maintenance , and really encouraged questions, and was very upfront with the possible pitfalls of owning a pool. In other words, he gave us a complete picture of owning a pool and didn't shy away from problems others have had with a pool. We also discussed spa types and sizes, the type of filtering system to use and the advantages/disadvantages of a salt water chlorine generating system, as well as solar water heating systems.The other pool builders only emphasized a "perfect scenario" for our pool and any questions or concerns we had were usually just brushed off or we weren't really happy with their response. Rick then had us meet a pool designer and after several modifications, we were happy with the design. We actually liked his design so much that when the other builders came for an estimate, we asked them to use the plans from Ricks designer to base their estimate. We received the quotes from other builders and though others have written that Rick is usually more expensive, we found that his estimate was right in the middle, with one other builder much more expensive than him and another only slightly lower. His quote sheet is extremely detailed, with every phase of the build and its cost clearly laid out. Other estimates from other builders were not nearly as detailed and weren't as clear. After about a month of interviewing all the pool builders and calling references, we went with Rick and we started the build soon after.. All through the process Rick kept us informed of when work would be done, what exactly they were doing, and he would take us to various suppliers to choose what materials/ equipment we wanted. If there were any concerns, we got either a call or an email within a day but we would usually have a response within an hour. We couldn't ask for a more responsive contractor. This past spring was especially rainy for our part of California, but the delays were kept to a minimum, and if one aspect of the build was weather dependent and couldn't be completed, Rick called another subcontractor to do a job that wasn't weather dependent. Overall, nearly everyday someone was doing something and the project was pretty much on schedule. All the subcontractors were very courteous and professional and always cleaned up after a days work. The project went exactly as planned and didn't go over budget. Once the pool was completed and the landscapers started their work, Rick went over equipment functions and pool maintenance and set us up with a local pool maintenance company. He also emphasized that just because he is finished building the pool, if there were any problems to let him know. He definitely backs up all his work and we have one less thing to worry about with him. We couldn't have asked for a better pool builder and were totally satisfied with Rick and Hacienda pools service.

Sterling Pool Supplies & Service Inc
Recent Review: I called Sterling shortly after we bought our new house to have them come out and assess the pool for safety. Their representative came out as promised and delivered a very thorough assessment of our situation. He was even familiar with the water quality and hardness in our neighborhood and gave me a great overall picture of what we had and what we should do. Subsequently we replaced two pool pumps. That work also went very well and the end result was very positive. Our most recent two projects with Sterling have been to install a new pool control system (with a wireless controller, which has been a great addition to the system) and a pool cover. Both projects were as quoted and on time.

ALOHA POOL & SPA SERVICE
Recent Review: The work done was ok. They did a fine job, however they were a bit pricey. We had the work done a year ago and we still have had no problems. Other than the price being high, I think they did a good job. It's a lot of work to put in a pool.

Blue Splash Pool Service Repair & Leak Detection
Recent Review: It went great. Miguel was fantastic. He was very punctual , knowledgeable, and professional. He had good ideas, listened to what we needed and explained the job and recommendations so that we could make good decisions. We were really impressed that he used his own employees rather than subs. Every aspect of the job went well. The quality of materials and skill of the employees were very high. In a little more than a week we had a brand new pool. We also switched our weekly pool maintenance to Blue Splash. We highly recommend them

ALMADEN VALLEY WATER PRO'S
Recent Review: I contacted Almaden Valley Water Pros because we had stopped our former pool service during the remodel and they could not be contacted when we were ready to get the startup process going on the pool. They came out on a weekend to give a free estimate and even came out on Labor Day to get the startup process going. They are very knowledgeable and professional and I appreciate that he lives locally and is super responsive when I email. His quote for the startup was in line with what I expected and we appreciated that his monthly fee for regular service was a flat fee that included chemicals and was also a fair price. Our previous guy charged a fee plus chemicals and every month's bill was different. We hired them to do our regular weekly service as well and I look forward to a long association with Almaden Valley Water Pros.

DBlue Splash Pool Service Repair & Leak Detection
We called yesterday to have a new pool heater installed. Received a return call from Miguel Lopez stating that a service person would show up today between 2 and 4 pm. Stayed home to meet with the service person who never showed up and never called. Really frustrating to waste an afternoon waiting while missing work .

They were on time, professional, courteous, kept in constant communication, and did all that they were asked to do. We now have an almost new pool.  We would highly recommend this company.

APARAMOUNT POOL PLASTER
Nice company. Good crew. In an out in a flash. Did a good job and it looks like a new pool. Of course the proof is in the longevity of the job two to three years down the line but I was pleasantly surprised how neat and efficient the whole operation was.

APACIFIC POOL COVERS
They come out twice a year. They clean and reseal the pool cover. They will be installing a new pool cover at the end of this summer. They are very professional and come out when they say they would. They do a great job.

FPremier Pools and Spas
We hired Rick Fernandez with Premier Pools. The process was a complete disaster, and continues to be an ongoing expense and mess. A process that we were told would take 6-8 weeks took us nearly a year. We had to complete the end on our own. This contractor disappeared for weeks at a time with excuse after excuse of why he did not show up or why something was not done or did not come in. He also demanded more money for "unforeseen" things that were never discussed, and wanted payments before they were due, or he would not continue. Premier Pools corporate offices (Paul Porter) was of no help, and would not take my calls or help us. We failed every inspection due to negligence and not doing things appropriately, and it was one problem after another. After less then 6 months of completing the pool, it started cracking with huge gaping gaps all along the waterline. Rick Fernandez and Paul Porter of Premier Pools refused to help, even though this is under warranty and happened due to poor workmanship on their part. The pool has had issue after issue, and I can only try to help anyone else who might be considering using Rick Fernandez/Premier Pools. For us this has been the biggest disaster we have ever had in any construction on a home. We have worked with many contractors, and some good and some bad, but this went beyond our worst nightmare. We now have no pool this summer, as it has been drained and is being partially torn up after a short time of having it. See attached photos.
