Recent Review: I had my pool resurfaced last year by a big company specializing in pools. Countryside Pool Service, which had been performing weekly service on my pool for many years, took an interest in the project without my asking, even though they were not doing it, and saved me thousands of dollars in what would have been repairs to the resurfacing job, which was not done right initially. Countryside has provided us with excellent pool cleaning service for years. I can't recommend Albert at Countryside highly enough!
Recent Review: This is our second occasion to use Mr Whitey, the first being at our old address and Mr Whitey fitted a new vinyl pool liner. The finished job looked amazing. We recently moved to a new house and pool did not have a proper pool cover (just a tarp!), my husband and I usually open our own pool, however when we removed the cover it was pretty nasty. With this past years flash flooding and I guess alot of our neighbors soil, mulch and leaves now lying at the bottom of our pool we knew this was a big job. We didn't know this pool as it had different filters, water system etc, it was concrete and was a right mess. We made our emergency call to Mr Whitey and told him the state of the pool and asked if we should drain it. Mr Whitey came out the next day and took over the pool and told us not to touch it until he has worked his magic. Well he certainly did, we did not have to drain the pool and a week later the pool looks absolutely beautiful. Mr Whitey has given us a overview on how this particular pool works and instructions. I can't thank Mr Whitey enough, our pool really looks beautiful and for sure this man knows how to work magic on a pool.
Recent Review: I have an in ground pool so my pool service is Atlantic Pool, Inc. They're excellent. I've used them since I've moved here seven years ago. They are totally professional, here exactly the time they make the appointment for. They answer all your questions and give you recommendations of things you might want to upgrade or just change to make the pool better. Since I've used nobody else, I would say probably A [for the price]. They're very reasonable people. [For quality] they're excellent. They're top notch.

Recent Review: We had several estimates for removing and replacing coping and water-line tiles. I was actually disapointed that A&S gave me the best price because they had been undependable in the past for pool servicing. I went with them anyway, and was shocked at their honesty, professionalism and promptness. The estimator told me of a 5% discount I didn't know about, then applied an additional 5% dicount I did know about regarding on-line payments, to further reduce the costs. He assessed my needs honestly, telling me that I didn't need half the work others told me about. All estimates and discounts were recorded in their written proposal. The work was scheduled within a week of my accepting the proposal. The job took three days; first to remove the old tile and caulking, then to replace the tile, then to recaulk. Each day their crew arrived at 7:15am, before I had to leave for work, and cleaned up after themselves as though they were never there. That included carying away the old tile and grout, and cleaning up the cement and grout. They didn't leave a crumb behind. The best part - we didn't miss a weekend in the pool.
We couldn't be happier with Swimstyle Pool & Spa, Inc. Rick St. Denis and his team are amazingly responsive and professional and they do beautiful work. Rick and Nancy worked with us to scope out the project and get the proposal just right. This process was effortless as Rick was extremely responsive to questions and they provided us all of the resources we needed to choose our materials and clearly describe what we were looking for. Once construction began they completed each phase exactly as they said they would (and exactly on time and in budget). Mary managed things from a scheduling point of view and we always knew she was "on it" in terms of what was happening, when it was happening, who was doing it, etc... Another outstanding service aspect is that Swimstyle always left our property looking "pristine" after each day's work. Having lived through many a renovation project where the area is a big mess until the job is completed we really appreciated being able to see progress each day and being able to enjoy that progress rather than be distracted by "construction debris." The net result is that we have our new pool ready to open for the summer, it's beautiful and we love it! We would also like to note that while our total renovation needs were closer to $25,000, Swimstyle was happy to work with us on a two phase design and installation process so that the project would fit into our budget. We really appreciated a contractor that would work with us on our reality as opposed to trying to "hard sell" us on our dream. We will be back Swimstyle!

FSPA & POOL SVC INC
Dave Lants the owner of Spa and Pool Services a self-proclaimed expert pool inspector gave me a reasonable estimate (4.9k) to get my pool in working order. I gave him a deposit and was told it would be about three weeks before he could get started. He wanted an extra thousand to clean the debris out of the pool so we made a deal where as I would clean the pool. After it was clean, I asked him to come ensure it was clean enough for him to start work. When he came back out, he said the pool was in worse shape than he thought and it could cost in upwards of 40- to 50k. As an enlisted Soldier, I told him that was too much to spend and that I would fill in the pool. I asked for my deposit back since he had not started any of the contracted work. This is when the real issue started. He refused to give me my deposit of $2800. I spent a third of my deposit in attorney’s fees suing Dave Lants and his company Spa and Pool Services. After almost a year of back and forth with the attorneys, and two days off work to go to court he was finely ordered by the courts to repay all of the deposit but I was out the attorney’s fees. I would not recommend Dave Lants and or his company Spa and Pool Services to anyone for any reason unless there is not enough stress in your life.

ABJ Pool & Spa
BJ was prompt and thorough. They detected several leaks and repaired them. They also suggested if I continue to have additional leaks, then I should get a new pool liner. Note: this pool liner was the top line that the supplier offers and is only 2 years old.

CCAPITOL POOL SVC INC
Biweekly pool service of my indoor swim spa. Worked well for a while, but then the water quality deteriorated mysteriously and they weren’t able to diagnose or address it. Eventually changed pool liner and cover. Should have done that and changed companies sooner. My new company is much less expensive and provides more information each visit.

AMARLBORO SWIMMING POOL SUPPLY
Excellent service and quality. The most competitive price of the companies we got estimates from. They provided an itemized estimate and were honest with us about what to expect/look for in other estimates so could make an informed decision. They were very responsive throughout the process answering all of our questions timely. They were on time the day of the install and as always very friendly and communicative as they were working.

I first spoke to Paul on May 10th and our initial conversation went well. I had several issues I needed help with including checking drains, skimmer, and area around pool like for leaks and fixing any that might be found, replacing a corroded pool light, and opening the pool for the summer. I also wanted my vinyl pool liner replaced either at the beginning of this summer (2018) or the end. He explained that this was a busy time of the year (which I completely understood) and he asked me if I would be willing to set up an appointment for June 7th. That was fine with me. The day before the appointment, I called in just to confirm the appointment and get a sense for what time I should expect him to arrive. I never got a call back. I tried reaching him numerous times on both June 6th and June 7th through Angie's List, via voicemail, and via text message. I never got a single response. He simply never called and never showed up. I never got an apology or explanation for his cancelling the appointment. VIP Pools had good reviews on Angie's List so I simply cannot understand for the life of me how he could have provided me with such dismal customer service.

Matt was quick to respond and took his time when diagnosing the problem. Two companies before his had failed to do so. He was reliable and efficient. He fixed other pool parts that were not installed correctly while he was doing the work. We will use his company again if we should need their service.

The quality of work, level of service, and professionalism of the installers was exceptional. The boss even showed up to inspect his team's work! After a bad experience with the "other" pool company in the area, Aqua Mechanics was recommended to me and selecting them to replace my liner was absolutely the right decision. Highly recommended!

ATURNERS POOL SERVICE
Pierre was very responsive, professional, and prompt. Because of the cold weather we had to postpone the install several times and he called every time. Every time I called him he was available. Once we had warmer weather we set a date and he showed up and started the install. He had two helpers who stayed working when he left and they worked very hard to get the liner in without any wrinkles. This was great because the last installer had a hard time because I choose to have the liner installed so it gradually gets deeper in the middle. Pierre showed up to help at the end of the evening. They worked on my liner to almost 9:00 pm at night. It looks great!! No wrinkles and great service. Very hard working people. I would highly recommend them for an above ground liner install. The price would have been cheaper but I had not had my pool running the year before and there were a lot of roots to remove and they worked so hard to make it perfect. I provided my own liner for the job.

AASP - America's Swimming Pool Co Springfield VA
I would recommend ASP to everyone. They have amazing customer service and pool knowledge. When something is wearing out they let us know so we can fix it before it becomes a bigger, more expensive problem. When our pool heater crashed right before a big pool party, they were able to get us another one and get it up and running before the party. The pool is always clean and the staff is so friendly and helpful.
