I rarely post online reviews. But this deserves one. Dave, the owner of this company, while clearly competent in regards to his pool knowledge, does not care in the slightest about promptness nor returning phone calls or texts. Over a month ago our salt water system went down (Dave installed it two years prior) and I got in touch with him regarding the problem. He came out, promising to come back with the replacement part. Its been 5 weeks, he never returns my calls, I can only get through when I call from a different number, and when he did finally respond to my texts he accused me of being a "squeaky wheel" and that he doesn't deal with squeaky wheels. He then referenced my father as my "daddy" because I had used my fathers phone to try and get in touch with him because he wouldn't return calls or texts from my phone. While on the phone with my father he stated "I don't fix pools, I build pools".Frankly it's an embarrassing way to run a business. I'd look elsewhere if I were looking for a pool guy.
Pools by George of Pinellas County located in St. Petersburg Florida is a very poor service and work company. After they get your signatures you will not be able to contact them, they do not return calls. Equipment put in pool was old equipment, pool finish is a mess and they do not stand behind their work. Been over 6 months and the pool is still unfinished. Pools by George is not the company that they represent with 40 years of experience, it is new owners and they have no idea what they are doing.
I would not recommend this contractor to anyone! He has zero customer service, gives lots of excuses for reasons for not showing up or get work done. His sub contractors don't trust that they will get paid, had to pay them our self to get them to work ( not sure why we need a contractor if we paid the sub contractors) . Wants to blame the customer and back talk. Worst experience I have ever had with a company/ contractor,
