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.

Aaron did a great job cleaning our large pond and repairing the fountain. We will be using his help again in the future.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The old liner had eroded. I purchased the new one in June, but they still have yet to install it. The sub contractor has yet to install it.

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.

ACustom Pools Inc
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: They were great to work with. Always prompt on answering calls, very quick to be able to provide a quote and when other questions came up (crack in my stairs) they were able to help provide some advice on how to deal with it. I would use them again when my liner needs to be replaced again.

Recent Review: The service was wonderful. I selected them after a poor experience from a different company and I have used them a few times since them. The service has been excellent. They are very efficient, cost effective, and they have been great to work with in the past. I have no doubts in using them in the future. They are very professional and responsive. The experience has been very good.

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: 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.
