Don Matheson

As a Real Estate agent having reliable vendors is always an asset to my business. Having a reliable pool service company like Aquaman Pools is a game changer for both myself and my clients. Chad and the entire Aquaman Pools team is top of the line. I know I can not only trust them but I can recommend them to any potential buyer or seller and my clients receive top notch service! I personally use them at my own home and have been nothing but satisfied with their company!

Doug Hill

Amazing service. Fast, friendly, and fair. I had a pool company tell me that they could not find the source of the leak at our pool. They said they’d get back to me but never did. I called Aquaman Pools and their technician located the problem immediately. They did the work while I was away for the day and when I came back the problem was fixed. Not only was it fixed but the technician blew the leaves away from my Kool deck so that no leaves got in my pool. That wasn’t his job, but he did it anyway. I’m simply amazed. Have a problem with your pool? Call them. Need regular pool service? Call them. You, too, will be amazed.
