We had solar pool heating put in by Mirasol and it has proven to require costly repairs and frequent service calls. While their service crews are very nice, their equipment and warranty does not last long. We paid extra for their maintenance contract and have been very disappointed by the extra charges, what is NOT covered, delayed service, broken promises, cost estimates that differed from the in...

Went very well from initial sales meeting to post installation follow up. They were more expensive than another quote I received but after much research I felt the higher quality of product made it a better value. Everything was done on time and they also showed me how I had an incorrect setting on an unrelated valve and got that corrected. There was a very minor issue with the installation that t...
