Review by Stacey R. in Pittsboro, IN
Project: Build or Install a Vinyl Lined Swimming Pool
Hired Don in March 2017 with a contract that said pool would be completed by May 27, 2017. With Indiana spring weather we knew this may not be attainable. Dig was started May 15th. It took him until June 27,2017 to get walls set (weather had been great) With a promise that the pool would be completed by July 4th ...did not have water in the pool until July 13th! Concrete installed July 19- which was a disaster to say the least- I wish I could include pictures: gravel was exposed in areas and my son cut his foot on a wire piece sticking up! He admitted it was too hot and it got away from him and he would replace it ALL. We needed a break from him so we told him he could replace it in September. We had to place rugs over our concrete to use the pool. September came and he said he could FIX the concrete....out second opinion concrete specialist said no way...We finally paid out of pocket to replace the unusable areas. September he was back trying to finish up- we still had a pile of dirt in our back yard the he had not back-filled out pool- wires were tangled at our electrical-hot tub stonework was incomplete...Finally by the beginning of October when the work was still NOT complete I fired Don. He may have had a good work ethic in Tennessee but in Indiana he enjoys working at the track and you are out of luck if you expect him to work. Do NOT hire the pool specialist. Sadly, Don had great ideas for the pool itself but he could not follow through on getting it completed.

Review by in Danville, IN
Replaced in-ground vinyl liner and reconfigured plumbing. Don faced a lot of challenges with a very high water table. He communicated well (while the water slowly receded) and stopped by to check the progress too many time to count. In the end, the water table went down and the liner went in. Don was a true professional. I would highly recommend.

Review by in Old Hickory, TN
The Pool Specialist were professional & responded to all my questions & concerns immediately. They showed up at the appointed time & called to make sure I was available ahead of time. The entire crew was friendly & professional & pointed out areas of concern for the next time I needed a liner installation. Matt was exceptional & I really enjoyed his expertise & personality. We did have one minor problem that was due to a miscommunication on a secondary drain & the cost was immediately taken off my final bill. I am calling them to quote closing my pool for the winter due to their service.

We have been very satisfied with the Poll Specialists!!!!!! As a new owner of an above ground swimming pool we really had no idea how to winterize and then ultimately open a pool. The guys were great in offering us very basic information so that we could understand without getting too confused. VERY courteous gentlemen working with us and very knowledgable. They were even able to work with us on their pool opening prices since we had been keeping the water off of the top for the winter season. I would MOST definitely recommend these guys!

Don responded to my email request immediately and Matt serviced the pool. Matt was very professional and answered all my questions about the service he was providing. I will call them again when I am closing my pool.

We just moved to the area and we found The Pool Specialists through Service Magic. The ratings were VERY good and I will only add to their AWESOME performance. Matt, the pool technician, was extremely helpful and courteous and explained what he was doing in every day terms so that I could understand (we were having our pool winterized). We have never owned a pool before so I was a little leary on how to do things and he was very helpful!! He called ahead of time to make sure the time was OK for me and arrived as he promised. I feel the value for the service was a 10 out of 10. I will be using these folks for future pool projects!!!

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.
