Putting in pool- pool recommendation please

If you recently put in a pool and was happy with the pool company, please recommend them. I’m looking to get quotes (located in Suffolk). TIA

We used Spechtacular.....very happy with them.
I believe they are a vendor on here.
We got many quotes, and felt very comfortable with them the minute they sat down with us.

I hear good things about this company. My friend used them and I plan on getting a quote for next year.

We used John Joseph Pools in Smithtown
We already had an unground pool but half of it was damaged. They came in and basically rebuilt that side and new stairs. They didn't try selling us on a whole new pool. Which we really appreciated. Came out fantastic. We were very happy with their work and service.
ETS this was about 8-9 yrs ago.

We just called them. The earliest for a quote would be October and the earliest they can do the pool is October 2021!!! So that stinks.

I'm using Specht-actular now. We are almost done. I highly recommend them. Their entire staff has been above board professional and, what I am most impressed by, is the communication is excellent. There are no shenanigans. They tell me EXACTLY what is happening and when it's going to happen. The crews have all been knowledgeable and fantastic. In the beginning I was worked up because I felt like we were raked over the coals a little bit but I don't feel that way now. I know we are getting exactly what we are paying for.

Chat Icon Wow!

In that case, I also really liked James Joseph in Smithtown. He constructs the pool similar. I also liked LI Pool and Patio a lot. He does steel wall pools. My friends are using Dakota and are happy.

I did not like South Shore. The guy I met with was a moody, misogynist jerk.

WE got a quote for the steel wall pool, and almost fell over with the price.

Re: Putting in pool- pool recommendation please

We just started construction on our pool today! We are using Platinum Site Development. We received quotes from alot of companies including specht-tacular pools and LI pool & patio.
I did not like LI Pool & Patio. They switched sales people on us and I didn't like who we were dealing with. He was very rude.

So far everything has been smooth with Platinum.

They must have come down in price. WE got a quote when they were just new to them. This was years ago.

We just got our pool installed this year and used True Blue pools in Dix Hills. We were happy with them. I'm hearing that places are booked for a while now so I'd start looking ASAP.
