I am writing this letter with grateful thanks for the fantastic pool you installed for us. The whole process was incredibly easy. We had talked with several other pool installers before you and they made everything seem so complicated. Your team was amazing and you did a terrific job coordinating everything. On the first day the crew arrived, dug out the hole, installed the pool, and filled it with water. When I left for work in the morning no one was there, but when I returned the pool was in and full of water. We had a few days delay due to heavy rain, but on the first dry day the concrete was poured. Immediately after Jarod arrived and hooked up the pump and cleaned the pool and we were ready to go. Since the pool has been in we have used it every day. The kids spend most of the day in it. We turn the filter on for 4 hours a day and vacuum daily and the pool looks terrific. I am so glad I talked with you before having a pool installed as I believe the fiberglass pools are the only way to go. The pool looks great, is easy to clean, and very low maintenance. It did not cost too much more than a liner pool, but that difference will easily be made up in a few years. I highly recommend fiberglass pools and Pioneer Valley Fiberglass pools. As I stated before the whole process was easy for me and I am so glad we did it. Thanks to you, Clancy and your whole team for a fantastic job.
Now that our installation process is complete, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for making the entire process friendly, professional and worry-free. Right from the beginning, you were so flexible and understanding of all our needs and concerns. I am so very thankful that we ended up working with you and your wonderful company. Jarod and his staff really listen to the customer on a day to day basis! It is so refreshing to know that there are still "solid" businessmen out there like yourself who operate on trust, respect and all around customer satisfaction. We LOVE the pool and look forward to many years of pleasurable summers. All our best to you and the boys in the future. Thank you all so much!!!
Thank you so much for all the work you did on behalf of our family to get us the pool we always dreamed of having. Our family had been through a bad experience with another pool and then encountered serious medical issues with our son that made the dream of owning a pool impossible so I thought. Clancy worked with the equipment manufactures and San Juan as well as offering his own discount to make it all come together. They installed a fabulous pool with everything we ever wanted in less than a week including concrete. It was incredible and the transformation to our backyard is unbelievable. Thank you so much for all you did for our family.
