Review by Marsha P. in Jacksonville, FL
Do Not Use This Company. They are not properly licensed or insured in the State of Florida. Shame on Home Advisors for keeping them on their preferred list of contractors. Chad Vlaeminck doing business as Purple Heart Pools, Inc. (also known as Professional Pool Care, Inc.) is not licensed to perform the services advertised on his website and is, therefore, operating as an unlicensed contractor in the State of Florida The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) is the agency in Florida charged with licensing and regulating businesses and professionals and clearly states: In Florida, a pool business must be licensed by DBPR to legally operate. A search of the DBPRs website at http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/ reveals no such license for either Vlaeminck, Purple Heart Pools, Inc., or Professional Pool Care, Inc. When we contacted Purple Heart Pools asking for their contractors license number, Vlaeminck gave us his business license number. DBPR states, An occupational or business license does not mean the business is authorized to perform contracting work but simply shows the business is registered to conduct business. The companys website clearly states it is licensed and insured. DBPR states, "A contractor is required to display his or her contractors license number on any advertisement. No such number is displayed on the companys website. 2018 Florida Statues, Chapter 489, states, The scope of work for a swimming pool/spa servicing contractor requires a license issued by DBPR. Chapter 489, Florida Statutes, sections 489.127, F.S. states: Unlicensed contracting is a crime. Any person who practices, offers to practice, or hold themselves out as licensed to practice contracting is subject to criminal prosecution. Purple Heart Pools can legally clean your pool without a license issued by DBPR. However, even in this endeavor, they are incompetent. After cleaning our pool for 5 months, we had the water tested and found no chlorine and/or pH balancing chemicals present at all. Our filter had not been cleaned properly the entire time and was so dirty it had to be replaced. Additionally, when asked, Vlaeminck could not produce a workers compensation insurance certificate as required by DBPR covering his technicians. If one of the technicians is hurt on your property, your homeowners insurance could be liable since Vlaeminck is not properly insured. We never knew what day the pool technician would arrive,if at all and he spent less than 10 minutes on our pool when he actually did show up. We paid $150 a month for under 20 minutes of substandard work by Purple Heart Pools, Inc. Stay far away from this company and do not let them do any contracting work such as pool repair, pool remodeling and renovation, pump repair, pool plastering, or deck repair because they are not licensed and insured to do this work.

Great work, great service. Chad was someone I would recommend to anyone. He came out to the house and cleaned our filter and Cell in a salt water pool. He spent a lot of time letting me hang out and ask questions. Gave me some great tips on how to take care of my pool. Did a great job and went over and beyond. Thank you Chad !

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
