Looking at putting in a pool and their bid looks good. Includes electrical, waterfall, equipment, etc. What was your experience like with them?

They were big in Dallas. Never used. Just get everything in writing!!! Even completed by date. Also add a penalty to them if they don't finish on time I worked in the pool business for several years, I know! Pool business is notorious for funny stuff!

Would you mind shooting me a pm with what you’re looking at getting and a ballpark price? We’re tossing around either a fiberglass or traditional pool in the next year or so

They used to be independently owned franchises. I worked for the Orlando FL location around 30 years ago. My job was to fix all the garbage work the subs did. It was unreal. Reputation is everything in the industry...

If youre in the DFW metro area, I would recommend calling Four Rivers Pools. They did mine, my parents, and a couple in our neighborhood

Check the size and amount of steel they lay down. Cheaper pools often shot cut on steel.

Where are you located? If in San Antonio, Austin, or Hill country area look into Keith Zars. They are doing ours and we are extremely satisfied so far..... about 2 weeks away from being finished.
