Review by Matthew R. in Richboro, PA
Project: Build or Install a Concrete Swimming Pool
Worst experience I have ever had. Once they got my money they barely responded and now there are leaks and plaster cracks with no resolution. Left the CEO a message and zero response.

Project: Build or Install a Vinyl Lined Swimming Pool
The main problem is that they depend almost exclusively on subcontractors for their work. This means that you as the customer will spend a lot of time waiting for resources to become available. The concrete, the electrician, the plumber, and even the hardscaper are independent contractors who, in my opinion, don't give any special priority to your project. The project manager has no ability to manage the project because he/she has to wait for people to become available. The project manager is more a facilitator than a manager. Although I have no complaints about the quality of work, this project is taking a very long time - now going on three months and no where near complete.

Avoid this company if you read nothing else! The only thing that Anthony & Sylvan (A&S) does well is marketing. I paid UP big to have “the great” Anthony and Sylvan build by pool, but I could have gotten the same awful experience and final result with just about any Joe the Builder and I would have saved myself over $15,000 and probably some headache. I was told my build would take between 6-8 weeks when I signed the contract and it was 6 months from shovel in the ground to final inspection. I would expect some problems with any large project (I’ve done plenty of them to know), but at this price I would also expect those problems to be dealt with swiftly and professionally. Every issue we faced, and there were many, was a tremendous struggle and fight to get rectified. Numerous times we were flat out ignored. There is no concept of a project manager here so be ready to manage it yourself. Quite honestly with a phone and the yellow pages you could call the same sub-contractors used by Anthony and Sylvan and build your own pool yourself and really save some money. It is all out sourced. I would give zero stars if I could. John Dudas

I initially had trouble with this company in regards to scheduling, communication, and follow up. Anthony & Sylvan did resolve those issues. Therefore I am updating my review. I appreciate their help in resolving my frustrations in a fairly timely manner. Unfortunately, we are still dealing with unforeseen problems. Specifically, the upgraded plaster we purchased was installed incorrectly. as a result, they had to drain our pool a month or two after it was opened to apply an acid treatment to try and fix the plaster. The acid treatment did not work and now i am being told all of the plaster will have to be ripped out and reinstalled in the spring. I am grateful that they are continuing to work on the project. However, I am extremely disappointed that the project will now take a year to complete (or at least I am hopeful it will only take a year.) I will update in spring/summer of 2019 as Anthony & Sylvan repair their install. So far, I would not recommend this company.

Project: Build or Install a Concrete Swimming Pool
There was a ton of rain that hindered the progress of construction, but they were sensitive to that and worked as quickly as possible to get the job completed.

This company has so many problems from every level, you would be crazy to buy a pool from them. From the very begging the salesman will promise you the world, HE IS THE BIGGEST BS around. My salesman Eric actually did the old bait and switch, when I told him his price was high he came back the next day and lowered his price by $4000, so we agreed to get the pool from him. Then during construction, I ask when were they going to put the salt in and the foreman said I wasn't signed up for salt system??? That is how he was able to lower his price by $4000 he eliminated the salt system and didn't tell us. Then if they tell you you don't need to be there during the construction, THEY LIE, they dug my hole put the rebar in, did the plumbing, all this in a couple of weeks. NOT 1 person from AS was ever present on my property. There were so many problems and if I wasn't there everything would have been done wrong. Fist when plumbers showed up, they were going to put the pumps and equipment right in the entrance to where all the trucks would have to get in. If I didn't speak up and stop them no trucks could get in and I would have had to pay to get the concrete pumped in and would have cost me another $5000. Then since the foreman wasn't around the plumbers had to cap the pipes and not finish the job. Next the tile guys show up to do the tile and I said can I see the tile they were going to put around the outside of hot tub and back wall, he shows me a bright blue tile, I said that is not what we picked, we picked a tan tile. He had to call and they told him he had the wrong tile. Still NOT 1 person from AS on site. If i wasn't there my pool walls would been bright blue??????? So now this all started in October, now it is June and they come out to convert to salt system, my pool has been open for 2 months. They told me they are very busy doing openings and cannot get to me for 2 months. So he shows up yesterday, and let me clarify, the service guys are all very nice and helpful. BUT, he dumps 6 bags of salt in the pool and goes to hook up the rest of the system, and they didn't leave the right wiring and connections. So they have to order the parts, so now my pool is cloudy and we are not able to swim in it till they get it fixed. I have emailed and called and have GOT NO RESPONSE as to when we will get this fixed?? I can go on and on, please feel to contact me and I can tell you the rest of the problems before you sign with this HORRIBLE COMPANY. Bob Shaw,

A&S was the only pool company that came thru as professionals during my search for a contractor to build a inground pool. I had at least 4 contractors contact me for this job, however none of them gave me any specific information of what type of pool i should go for and specifics of a pool design that would fit my property landscape. The cost estimate was specific to details. Their customer service and contractors were very professional and knew what they were doing thru each stage of the construction process. Our rep Robert Mccubbin and the project manager Harald Bottke was very helpful and communicated with us thru all the stages of the construction. I am glad I hired A&S and would recommend them to anyone without a doubt.
