“I first became a pool owner just recently when we purchased a new home, and I didn’t know the first thing about maintaining a pool. Therefore, it was in our best interest to hire someone to handle the monthly needs of pool maintenance. Of course, it’s always difficult nowadays to find someone to provide services who is trustworthy, fair, and honest. I looked online at many pool service companies, and there was something that felt good about Mike the Poolman. He’s local, a family run business, and years of experience. I’m so grateful that I decided to give him a call because I couldn’t be happier with everything he’s done for us. He’s very professional, fair with his pricing, always available to answer questions, and extremely knowledgeable about pool equipment. What I value most of all is that he’s honest. If Mike suggests we replace or upgrade any of our equipment because it’s broken or not running efficiently, I know it’s legit and he’s not trying to take advantage of us.
I highly recommend Mike the Poolman for for any pool need you have from monthly service to equipment repair. It’s comforting that at any given moment, my family can jump in our pool knowing that the water is high quality.

I want to tell you how pleased I am with your service. It is simply outstanding. You are great at all the standard pool service, but what I am especially appreciative of is the extra service your give. You watch over the complete operation of the pool/spa system, and have proactively recognized and addressed several equipment issues for me. I like how you communicate with me on a regular basis, and follow up to address problems and then make sure that everything is working properly. When equipment service is required you do it very quickly, with high quality and at a very fair price.
I am so pleased that I selected Mike The Poolman – great job!”
– Eric Mentzer, Folsom
“I can easily recommend Mike Stinson far above any pool service/repair contractor I have used over the past 20+ years. I have a particularly difficult pool for a number of reasons, and Mike has handled every aspect of repair and maintenance without fail. More importantly, since Mike has taken over the pool, it has been permanently removed from my list of things to worry about. What a relief!! In addition the price for repair and maintenance has always been more than reasonable, and from a dollar versus quality standpoint, nobody I have used comes close. Competent, honest, and reliable; what more can you ask for? Obviously, I recommend his services very highly!”
– Chris M., Folsom
“We have had Mike the Poolman help us out with various pool problems through the years. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is reliable, knowledgeable, honest and his prices are fair. He does not try to sell you something you don’t need but he will let you know if something needs repair. It is very refreshing to see that there are still honest businessmen out there like Mike. We will continue to call him for all of our pool needs in the future.”
– Clint M., Elk Grove
“I have had the opportunity to use the services of Mike the Poolman for the last 10 years. I have been in two homes, both with pools, and would never deviate from using Mike the Poolman for my pool servicing. He is always prompt, courteous, respects the backyard grounds, and is proficient and thorough. I have also had the occasion to use him for some pool technical issues and he has been able to identify the problem immediately and was able to take care of the problem without delay. I would highly recommend the services of Mike the Poolman, both for pool servicing as well as the array of other services he provides.”
– Dana H., Folsom
“It is always a bit of a gamble using a service for the first time especially when it involves a service need at your home. I found Mike’s information on-line and we found him to be very professional, prompt, fair with pricing, and extremely knowledgeable. He helped us with a complex problem initially and I did not think twice about having him back out when I needed a new pool sweep. He is
my pool guy from here on out. I highly recommend him for any pool need you have from simple service to underwater repair.”

time we hear a neighbor who needs quality pool care.”

“It is refreshing to work with a pool repair person you can trust. When we first bought our house with a 15 year old pool, it was Mike who we called to inspect it. He not only gave us a full rundown of our pool condition with a list of necessary and suggested repairs, but he also took the time to provide us with important tips for new pool owners, along with safety precautions to consider with our young children. And the repairs stayed within our budget – also very important!”

“Hi Mike, Just a quick note to say thank-you for your excellent and quick response to my problem I had with my drain cover in my swimming pool. I had been without a cover for quite sometime until I called you and set an appt. for you to come and repair it. You showed up exactly as you said you would, and had all the necessary equipment for the underwater repair. I also want to thank you for installing the plastic cover on my control box for the power to my filter. That little piece of plastic should have been replaced many moons ago, and you did it without even thinking twice. My family and friends are much safer now that the drain cover is fixed. Whenever I need your service or know of anyone that does, you will definitely be the one I call. Thanks again for all your help, Mike”

“Mike the Poolman is just fantastic. We have been using them for the past fifteen years and are very impressed with their service. The owner Mike Stinson is extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous. I have referred his company to many of my friends in the Sacramento area and they are very satisfied with his service. My pool is always clean and the pool system is always in working condition. A few months ago my pool sweep was not working properly. I contacted Mike and within one day had the sweep replaced at a great price. Mike and his staff are truly experts in their field of pool cleaning, service and repair. I would recommend Mikes services to anyone who owns a pool or spa. Thank you for your excellent service and I look forward to many more years of continued excellent service.”

“Due to our location we don’t have access to Mike’s weekly pool service but he is the only one we’ll call for repairs/problems. Simply put… Mike is fantastic. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to meet an owner of a company who tells you what’s wrong and gives you options on how best to handle it with your resources. He’s professional, meets his time-lines and stays in the agreed budget, which is vital in this economy. Since Mike repaired our pool all I’ve seen in our backyard is a family pool filled w/blue sparkling water.”
