  • I cannot say enough good things about Mike! We had him install a new pump and controller and he was upfront and honest every step of the way. He gave us lots of good options for our needs and the quality of work was top notch. Most importantly, I felt that Mike was one of the rare ones out there that truly knows his stuff. His expertise and friendly demeanor made us feel very comfortable with the whole project. We will definitely be calling Mike whenever we have our next pool project!

  • I was made aware of Mike's pool company by seeing one of his service trucks in my neighborhood and thought to give them a call. I recently moved into a new home with a pool that had been neglected over the past few years, and needed advice on how to bring it back to life.

    Mike immediately got back to me and let me know he would personally stop by my property to give it a look. He let me know what was needed for repairs, and what wasn't necessary in the short term. He never tried to up-sell me, just gave me an honest answer and good advice.

    I ended up having Mike install a new filter and variable speed pump. The equipment purchase was made through him, and along with labor, the price was incredibly fair. After the install, Mike gave me a full rundown on the new equipment, and provided several suggestions and advice on maintaining the pool.

    All in all I was very pleased with his professionalism and service. Will be calling him again if needed.

  • We needed a hand rail installed in our older pool.  Mike was consistently very responsive.  He offered a fair price and was always punctual.  He was especially helpful when we ran into a challenge installing the hand rail due to the age of the brick surrounding our pool.  His quick thinking enabled us to get the much-needed hand rail installed.  I can't recommend him highly enough!

  • I've had pools serviced in various places I've resided; Davis, Encinitas and Folsom; Mike The PoolMan (Mike Stinson) has been the best service provider that I've experienced. Mike's made complete repairs that most Pool Servicers won't touch. Mike is the complete service provider for regular maintenance, equipment repair/replacement and starting your pool back up after you've had it resurfaced! Mike's been outstanding and Victor has performed in an excellent manner with my weekly as part of Mike's crew! Thanks Mike!

  • Our pool heater hadn't been working for the past two years. It was time to replace it so I didn't hesitate to contact Mike. He had installed a variable speed pump a few years ago and did an excellent job. He had also done other equipment maintenance over the years. Mike was going to take a look at the heater to see what was wrong but I decided to just replace it as it was about 21 years old and continued to breakdown. Mike made a recommendation on a model and just finished installing it. He had to redo some plumbing to adjust to the new heater. He did an excellent job. He even repainted all of the plumbing pipes so it looks new.

    I can always rely on Mike if I have a swimming pool issue. He's friendly, kind and most of all very competent with any swimming pool issue. I can trust he will do the right thing and he always does. He even removed a few automatic valve actuators and converted them to manual without charge.
    I am grateful to have someone who I can trust in the swimming pool business who does outstanding work.
    Thank you Mike!
