I can't say enough about how pleased we are with our experience working with American Pools and Fountains. The results of the custom gunite pool and landscape design project far exceeded our expectations. I would characterize my wife and me as quite demanding and detail oriented when it comes to quality, design and craftsmanship.

APF gets an A+ in all categories! I can't say enough about the quality of work that Marvin, Angel and Hector and their teams performed. The rofessionalism, respect and friendliness they had for my family was greatly appreciated. Bill, you presented your vision of our property's potential and turned into a reality. Our house is now the official gathering place for our family and friends. We constantly hear compliments about the water features, the beautiful stone work on the garden walls, the custom tile design around the pool perimeter, the hand cut sandstone pathways and terrace, stone fire-pit, just to mention a few.

Additionally, the planting combination of roses, boxwood and exotics provide such a lush feel throughout the back yard. In the event we can be of any help to you as it relates to new prospective clients feel to pass along my contact information. I will be glad to provide a positive recommendation. I wish all the best to American Pools and Fountains and thank you again for the excellent experience and results!

We were lucky to find American Pools. A friend of ours who does landscaping was doing some work for us and we asked him if he knew of any pool companies that installed pools. He told us about America Pools because he has seen their work before and was very impressed. I searched for the company online and set up a meeting with Bill Foster the owner. My husband I and liked Bill the very first time we meet him.

We were very unaware about the different kinds pools and indecisive about what kind of pool would work best for our family. Bill was very helpful, patient and creative and drew up many pool designs for us. We liked the fact that if he gave us many options so we could stay within our budget but still end up with our dream backyard. Bill also had the challenge to tie in our existing deck and unattached garage. You would never know that these structures were not part of the original plan.

We have had a deck on our house for many years and never really used it much but since we put in our pool and fireplace we are outside every night even after work because it is so relaxing. My son and his friends could not be any happier and love the driving board and blasting the music. We have had numerous parties and everyone that has seen our backyard say they feel like they are at five star resort.

Dave and I would like to thank you for our fiberglass pool. We had been doing some research for sometime on the type of pool and a contractor that would meet our needs. We decided a fiberglass pool installed bv American Pools and Fountains, LTD was the way to go. We weren't sure what to expect from such a big project but once we met with you, you were able to put our minds at ease and.assure us that this job would be completed on time and on budget- We have to say that your company handled this project in a very professional way.

This was a professional installation with a safe and clean job site. Your installers took all of the precautions to make sure all of the work was done right. Everything proceeded without a hitch. It was a pleasure doing business with American Pools and Fountains, LTD. We are looking forward to using our American Pool this Summer,hope it gets here soon! Again, thank you for making this a painless and enjoyable experience.

Rod and Kay

We just wanted to say "THANK YOU" and express how pleased we are with our new "backyard paradise". Little did we imagine three years ago when we first met you and became aware of your company at the Cleveland Home and Flower Show that we would that we would end up with the back yard that we enjoy today. It is much more than a swimming pool.

It is an integrated entertainment area including the pool house (with fireplace, cooking area, bar, bathroom and equipment room), the decks and patio areas, hot tub, integrated waterfall, stone walls & fences, arbors, fountains and lighting-not to mention the extensive landscaping and irrigation system around the pool area as well as the entire property. Having completed two pool, patio and outdoor kitchen projects at other homes in the past, we had some specific thoughts and opinions as to what we wanted and, what we had learned from experience, we did not want.

It was a pleasure working in a collaborative effort with you to develop a plan that drew from your expertise and experience and yet incorporated our ideas and desires. In the end, we are convinced we ended up with the best design to provide the facilities we wanted which were integrated seamlessly with our existing home and property. Based on our past experiences, we are convinced that one of the keys that made our project such a success was your company's ability to provide all of the various craft labor and other expertise with only minimal use of subcontractors. This resulted in minimal delays and rework and provided for a full integration of all aspects of the project-including those that we designed and/or purchased independently. In closing, we would like to thank you and everyone in your organization for a job well done.

The quality is outstanding in every detail! It was a true pleasure interacting with all of you every day of the project. Everyone was always friendly and helpful. As you well know, Rod was constantly involved with all the details and formed a real "bond" with all the craft workers while prompting you to coin the phrase "nuclear quality pool". While you are not cheap-as they say ... "you get what you pay for". We would highly recommend American Pools to anyone looking to add a pool and/or outdoor entertainment area to their home. Please feel free to share this letter with any of your future prospective clients. As always, you are more than welcome to show our project to anyone considering such an undertaking.

Building a pool and its associated environment in your backyard is really a three pronged adventure. In all three cases; choices, management and sub-contractors, American Pools and Fountains could not have performed better. What you build is all based on choices. From budgetary and existing house and landscaping constraints to figuring out what you want and don't want in a pool environment is an almost insurmountable layering of choices. Every American Pools and Fountains employee listened, suggested and coached with equal amounts of realism, excitement and functionality.

It is a tribute to American Pool's abilities that now that it's all completed there is not one thing in the whole project I would change if I had it all to do over again. To me, management of a project is a combination of always being there, always being flexible and always overseeing every piece of the project to ensure maximum results. American Pools and Fountains, from my 10:00 PM idea calls to my thinking of a detail that they already thought of and completed yesterday to their critical oversight of every step, proved to be superlative managers.

The epitome of their management was the fact that the entire project was finished in 6 weeks regardless of the fact that one week was lost to rain. As we all know, the strongest chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Plumbers, electricians, concreters, plasterers, deck builders, landscapers, irrigators and more were each a link in the project. I am relieved, excited and thankful that American Pools and Fountains used only the best craftsmen who in turn handled each process in both a professional and exemplary manner.

Their combined efforts resulted in the absence of a weak link and rather an argument of which group did the most expertise job, as all were perfectionists. In summary, American Pools and Fountains exceeded all my expectations in every facet of the project and made the construction of a resort in my backyard a wonderful adventure.

Now that our pool is in and the job complete, we wanted to take the time and thank you for a job well done. Having dealt with builders and sub-contractors in the past, we can honestly say there has not been a more pleasurable construction experience.

American Pools and Fountains has built us the pool we envisioned and did so in a very professional and expedient manner. Your attention to detail made our original pool plans become something special that we can truly call our own. Also, your handling of issues and follow-up items was done in a timely and efficient manner. Your customer service should be commended.Once again, we thank you for the service you provided. We wish you the best of luck in the future.

We appreciated so much doing business with your company that l had intended writing a "thank you" note a few months later. Sorry it has taken so long.My wife and I have dealt with building contractors and pool contractors in the past and were not looking forward to repeating the experience again.

However, we could not find the home we wanted and began the process all over again. Selecting a builder was not easy, but I think we were fortunate and got a good one.Some friends in Solon told us horror stories about their experience with builders and the tales were only worse when we began asking about pool contractors.However, we wanted a pool, and called two pool contractors and, I think, intended to get three bids. We met with one of your competitors and got a bid and what sounded like a memorized sales pitch.

We visited with you next and got no more bids.You were all gentleman, articulate, and patient. Above all, American Pools, provided some creative ideas concerning construction and explained the process to us. What a pleasant surprise it was to meet with you and realize that you were all very professional, and answered questions, and explained what was going on. Throughout the process, it was nothing but a good experience. And, we want to say: Thank you to all of you at American Pools and Fountains.~ J.J.

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to all of you at American Pools and Fountains. As you all know I had a pool built by a National company at my previous address and was not pleased with the results.

When I built my new house in 2001, the exterior-landscape and pool was almost as important to me as my house plans. Your team did an excellent job of listening to me, looking at various pictures, and coordinating plans with my builder and landscape designer.

You took the time to make my dream pool and spa a reality. The quality of the workmanship has been proven through these years. A special thank you to the APF team. All pools and spas need occasional service and your response time to my needs are outstanding. The beauty of the pool would not have value without the ongoing support of everyone to ensure the function of the pool and spa. Thanks for not only building a great pool, but for being there whenever needed through the past years.
