Mike and team are true heroes! We began the process of building an in-ground pool in March, 2017. May, 2018 and our pool was a far cry from being completed. Our backyard looked like an abandoned lot, littered with garbage, overgrown weeds, etc. It was an eyesore that brought us a great deal of stress. The pool company we were working with; Florida Pools and More took a significant portion of our b...

WOW! Thank You! I feel horribly when I see pool customers treated the way that you were treated. It casts a shadow over the entire industry. This was definitely an "all's well that ends well" story. I wish you many years of enjoyment. Mike

Mike did an excellent job on our new pool. He was great at communicating with us from the start to finish of the project and was always prompt to reply to any questions that we had. His team was very professional and always cleaned the work site after finishing each day. Large construction projects can have a lot of unexpected hiccups, but Mike did a very good job of estimating the timeline of the...

I contacted Mike, owner, and scheduled a meeting for the end of October. During the meeting I selected the pool and features I wanted. I was told I’d have a price quote and lot plot within a few days. I waited 2 weeks before I contacted Mike. He said he would send me the quote soon. Fast forward 3 months, I have not received a quote for the pool installation, nor have I received an email or phone ...

It went very well. The team was great with cleaning up before they went home for the night. I had actually called OTHER people out for some quotes on getting the pool done and they all "dismissed" me (no calls back, excuses of they lost the quote, to:" I sent it, didn't you get it?") never to hear from them again. I believe it was because I wasn't looking to spend $60k in a pool renovation, they f...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had our outdated pool with built in planters on either side renovated. Mad River filled in the old planters with concrete to make for additional useable space ( areas for a hammock or table and chairs, etc.). Our old grass green pool tile was replaced with new "rock" looking tile, and our out dated PVC pipe water feature was replaced with a beautiful new rock waterfalls. Also updated to a salt system.

The process went very well. Mike and his team were very professional and on time. They kept their work area as neat as possible. We love the finished product. I would definitely recommend Mad River Pools.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Mike and his team Renovated our pool area. They added a spa with a waterfall into the pool and a stone raised area to our existing pool. The pool was resurfaced. Added a water feature. We had new pavers put around the pool area and we added an extra patio area outside of the pool area. We changed from Chlorine to Salt Water and added a heater for the whole pool.
