Pool Builders Inc. did a great job installing my new pool and patio under difficult site circumstances with a draconian city building code. John Delre was an attentive sales representative and always returned my calls when I had any questions or issues to resolve. DJ and his crew did a great job with the construction of the pool and patio. I highly recommend them!

I am very happy with my new swimming pool. This is my second swimming pool that Pool Builders has made for me and they both turned out beautiful. I chose the company for this pool based on my experience 27 years ago, but I still took a couple estimates before deciding to do a second pool with them. For comparison, my pool walls are a little thicker than other companies wanted to give me and I received an extra return. The equipment was important to me and it is better from what the other two companies were offering. For time.... permitting and design took about 4 months and pool was completed 3 1/2 months later. The process takes time as there were 21 inspections that had to be completed, so patience it needed when buidling a pool. My advice would be to say engaged in the process and have some fun with it.

We could not be happier about our beautiful pool. It is the centerpiece of our outside space. Once construction started, it seemed to go pretty quickly. But more important is the quality and look. We have been swimming every day.

John (sales lead), Bob (general manager) and Daylin (project coordinator) were excellent to work with. Their professionalism and collaboration were apparent from pool design through final inspections. Really a pleasure to work with, and will recommend them to anyone building a pool in SoFL.

As we are in the process of buying a new home, we visited the showroom of Pool Builders on Orange Drive. Their showroom is amazing as they have a complete and operational pool in the showroom. Even more incredible was the amount of time that their representative, John, spent explaining all of the different features and options. John was very knowledgeable on all aspects concerning an outside pool and willing to share his expertise. Thanks so much and great customer service!
