I decided this year I would get a pool. I did my research and went to Leslie's and to Watson's, only to be given bad customer service. And after their quotes, I inquired a month later how much the pool would be and the prices went up. I really got fed up with their service and their "Sales" which consist of a small, cheaply made, overpriced pool that looked like a tin can filled with water. Not to mention that the extras you need with a pool cost much much more than just their quote price. I went to A-tex and got the quote. I was really surprised by all the extras that you get at this store. There is really nothing you need to purchase extra. Unlike Leslies' and Watson's where you have to buy chemicals and the filter etc. A-Tex gives it all to you with their pool package. Also, they will level your land upto 20", whereas with the competition you have to pay per inch. A-Tex pools gave us so many things free with the pool that all we had to worry about was just filling it after it's installed and having fun. They gave us a nicer liner and also the upgraded ladder, and the upgraded sand filter for free. I am truly glad we went through A-tex because it was cheaper after it's all said and done, and the service was great. They have you go through a training session on how to use your filter and take care of your pool and water. Leslie's doesn't do that. In fact, Leslies' employees are so clueless, they couldn't even tell me what I need to add into my Jacuzzi. What they did recommend just turned the water brown and cloudy! I highly recommend A-tex pools. I wish I would have just saved my time and gas going there in the first place. By the way, we are having so much fun in our pool.
For any one looking for patio furniture go to Watson's. We went to several stores in San Antonio and found Watson's to be the best and the most helpful. Our sales person was attentive and truley wanted to help us find furniture that was right for us. They sell quality furniture and have alot to choose from. Out of all of the stores we visited they had the best selection. We spent approximately 2 weeks looking at furniture and we compared prices from everyone. We can tell you, without question, Watson's has the best prices in town, by far! They even delivered the furniture to our home for no extra cost. We were very pleased with our purchase with Watson's and would recommend them to anyone.
We purchased our pool from A-Tex Above Ground Pools last June and have been very happy with our purchase. We shopped all over before making a decision and definitely got the best deal. Several friends and relatives of ours recommended A-Tex to us and we're glad we listened. We have dealt with everyone at the Perrin-Beitel Rd. location at one time or another, and they have all been very helpful. We had a warranty claim on our pump and A-Tex took care of it immediately with no questions asked. We have been very satisfied with the product quality and customer service we have received and would absolutely recommend A-Tex to anyone else in the market for an above ground pool.
