How Has Owning a Pool Changed Your Family’s Life?
After my wife and I retired, we were weighing back and forth on whether or not to remain living in the Inland Empire area of Southern California and dealing with the excessive summer heat or moving back toward the coast or possibly out of California. We were hesitant to leave the area due to the fact that our children and grand children still lived in the area. We decided that if we were going to remain at our current location that we were going to at least be able to remain cool! So we decided to build a pool! Having a pool has not only kept us comfortable during the summer heat, but it has allowed us to entertain family and friends, who also enjoy our pool and surrounding landscape, on a regular basis during the warm weather months. Owning our pool has actually changed our life due to the fact that if we did not have it, we would have probably moved further away from our family and friends, which we really did not want to do as we approached our senior citizen retirement years.
Where Did Premier Pools & Spas Meet or Exceed Your Expectations?
My wife and I contacted five reputable pool companies in our area. We had an idea of the type of pool and spa that we wanted and how we wanted the pool, spa, and equipment played out on our property. We were disappointed by three of the companies as each gave varius excuses as to why they may not be able to accommodate our ideas. It appeared to me that these sales persons were trying to sway us away from what we wanted to what they wanted to build easily and cheaply. I noted that these reputable companies mostly subcontracted most of the work which ultimately affects the price. Each sales person subsequently advised that they would design a pool to our satisfaction and that they would recontact us in a week or so with their proposed design and quote. One sale person was not given a chance to design a pool for us as failed to show up twice after I had made two separate appointments. The last company that came out was Premier Pools & Spas. The sale person, who I later found out was one of the owners, was Jeff Boyer. Jeff was friendly, pleasant, and did not pressure us on anything. In fact, Jeff listened to our ideas and agreed with our design ideas. After Jeff left our house we felt satisfied that somebody else shared the same image of a specific pool design in our backyard. Forty-eight hours later we received a call from Jeff. He advised that he had completed the design and asked if we could come into his office to see it? Upon viewing the beautiful computer generated design, we immediately confirmed that this was the image and design that we were looking for. Additionally, the quote was well within the price that we were looking for. Work began on our pool in March of 2013 and we were swimming in our pool on Mothers Day in May of 2013.
