Received an estimate on an inground vinyl liner pool. Friendly and knowledgable. Straightforward. We ended up deciding on a gunite pool but if we had chosen a liner would have used Wind, surf and sail.

Quick response back from Ron. He came to our home, checked measurements, provided us with liner designs to pick from, ordered the liner and installed it. The liner looks great, the service was quick and Ron and crew were professional. Definitely would hire Ron and Downriver Pool again.

ADownriver Pool Service
We are new homeowners and had a neglected inground pool that we wanted to get repaired. The liner was in need of replacement and the pool needed additional work: The pool steps were weak, one wall had a large rust area, and the vermiculite was destroyed. Downriver fixed it all at a great price. Ron and his crew cut out the concrete around the steps, dug out the dirt under the steps, fixed the step supports, and added cinder blocks under the steps to make it very strong. He found the cause for the rusted wall, a pipe repair that hadn't been blocked off correctly, fixed a small hole in the wall, and removed the surface rust, topping it off with foam. All of the vermiculite was redone. A different contractor I had considered had me questioning whether is was more cost effective to fill vs. repair, but Ron was clear about what it would take and what it would cost, and the final price was the same as the estimate. We now have a beautiful "new to us" pool.

I have to say Rob Davis and his team are real out of the box thinkers and designed an amazing fountain with neon lights. It truly is the talk of the neighborhood. Rob and his team are very professional and exceeded my expectations.

AOscar's Pool Service
We shopped around for the best pool service in the area and Oscar's Pool Service was it. We called him on Tuesday. He came out the same day and immediately found the hole in the bottom of our pool's liner. He quoted us a great price on a new liner (The liner was getting pretty old.) and said he could have it done by the end of the week. He texted the next day (Wednesday, a day earlier than expected) and said he could start that day if we wanted. We gave him the go ahead and his team wrapped everything up in a couple hours. We came home from work to a beautiful new liner in a partially filled pool. We let the pool fill up overnight Oscar came back on Thursday and put the finishing touches on it. The pool is fully functional and ready to go 2 days after we contacted Oscar. I would highly recommend Oscar for any pool work that you need done. He was very professional and a genuinely nice guy.

CTHE POOL GUYS
The young men who came out to install the liner, were prompt, friendly and professional. They worked well together and it was obvious they knew their job. They took time out to answer my questions. When they left the pool looked great, and the entire area was cleaned no issues at all with their work. My only issue was the price, I was quoted $500 to replace the liner and $300 for a water truck. What I did not know until the day of was that the water truck would only partially fill the pool I had to finish filling it myself. I agreed to the water truck with the wrong assumption that it would be cheaper than filling on my own. Everything came at an extra cost: sand, screws, reveling a few posts (okay get that would be extra). The plastic liner holders were extra, as was the sand and setting up of the filter.

FWIND SURF & SAIL POOLS INC
We have worked with Kathy at WSS since the late 1998's. We have been a faithful customer which I now regret. This is the 2nd liner we had to have replaced and believe it or not within 2 years there was a large slit across top near water line - it was a good 12 inch slit. This was noticed upon opening the pool in May 2017. We actually noticed it - they didn't or didn't mention it perhaps because they caused it? Anyway she denied any responsibility as did the manufacturer findlayvinyl.com. That liner was not ripped when they closed our pool in September 2016. Our previous liner thru a different manufacturer lasted over 15 years with no issues. After going back and forth between Wind, Surf and Sail and Findlay Vinyl and getting nowhere with no responses - summer ended and winter came. Here it is summer 2018 - and WSS just opened my pool and ran their drainage hose into my landscaping and washed away a good 15 feet of my landscaping mulch! Of course, we called WSS and have once again received no response. We will not be doing business with them again and quite frankly by the reviews I have read - most people won't either. Be cautious - they are great when they are installing your inground pool but any follow up or issues you may run into (and believe me there are many) they will turn a blind eye and not respond.

I priced out of a few places and they were average on price. The things I loved: The end result so far so good. The things that were bad: lack of communication they wanted a lot of money to finish opening my pool. which consisted of chemicals, opening up my filter and putting in my ladder. I figured they would give me a little better deal since I just spent a lot of money on a liner. So my B Cash or check only for payment. I put my deposit down and it took them a week to get out to measure. 2 weeks later my liner came in and then it took them another week to get out to put it in. Joe was great and very particular on every detail. He was great to work with. After he installed it on friday Joe told me to call them when it got to a certain point and shut things off. it wasnt going to take long it was done by early sat morning. So i called them first thing. I dont know why they wouldnt just assume to schedule me for them to come back and cut the holes out for later the next day. They were busy and couldnt get to me till Monday. Monday came and I heard nothing. I had to call the office mid day and ask if he was coming. Joe hurt his ankle and couldnt make it. Understandable but I was waiting at home. They said they would get back to me they were getting someone else. I didnt hear back until Tue morning. They scheduled me for Wed morning. I was half a sleep when she called. I called back about 30 min later asking why they couldnt finish that day. She told me she was going to talk to the owner and get back to me. I didnt hear from them until they came knocking on my door Wed morning. I had the screws for my stuff laying all around my pool. I also had someone scheduled to come out Wed to open it that I had to cancel. I had originally asked them when I should tell the guy I use to come finish and open up my pool and I was told Wed to be safe. It took them about 30 min or so to finish. So it took 5 days from laying out my liner to finish. So I give them a C for punctuality and responsiveness. I love their work when I finally got it done. So far so good. So I gave them an A I would use them again for my liner I just know what to expect as far as time goes. I understand it is busy season for pool places I was just hoping they would have had a better sense of scheduling. A bunch of the above mentioned is the reason I gave them a B for overall and the others. It wasnt because of their work.

ADYNAMIC POOLS & SPAS LLC
Dynamic Pools repaired a difficult leak . There was water leaking out the back-side of the skimmer, which neither myself or another company was able to repair (after many tries...). Dynamic Pools thought to use a dye to find the leak, and discovered that it was not leaking around the skimmer. Instead, it was leaking through a pinhole about a foot away from the skimmer, then the water was making it's way between the vinyl and the pool wall to the skimmer. Compared to the other company, Dynamic Pools knew what they were doing, and charged a reasonable price.
Recent Review: Everything looks beautiful! We've received so many compliments. We plan to use this company again to finish our side yard and other landscaping projects. Tom, the owner, was prompt, professional, and his crew was very hardworking. They even worked in the rain! Highly recommended. Honest company, beautiful craftsmanship, and a fair price.

Recent Review: This is an update to the review I submitted previously. As mentioned in that review, I noticed some settling in the pool area about two-weeks after the work was completed. I contacted Heather and she agreed to have topsoil delivered the following spring to fill-in the settled area. I also asked that the topsoil be put in the driveway so I could wheelbarrow it to the backyard myself, since I didn't want to have to re-repair any yard damage caused by the machines. Heather agreed, and true to her word had the necessary topsoil delivered in late April. I have since filled-in and seeded the area. I am very satisfied with the service I received from Pool Busters, and highly recommend them.
