Beware of the service departme...

Beware of the service department at this company. They perform the minimum when opening pools (only there for an hour). They charged $300 to basically take the cover off the pool and add 4 gallons of shock (with 15% available chloride for a 35,000 gallon pool). Even after I said that there is no way that would be sufficient, they did not do anything else. Sure enough, pool is still not clear. Next, one of the gaskets was leaking and they did not catch it. Since part of the $300 was supposed to be for insuring that the system was running well, I called back. They did come back out and fix it, but they charged for the gasket. Then, when we asked them why the filter pressure was running high a day after they opened it, they looked at it and without permission cleaned the cartridges and charged my credit card $62. They charged my credit card without consent. I called to discuss this but they were unwilling to rectify it. Please avoid this vendor. I would assume that this tendency would be the same throughout all of their services.

They really know pools!

New location for Galvin - they are a little hard to find - but worth looking for! They really know pools.This place is a real TIME SAVER! When I go to Galvin, I know that I will get what I need. The people there can really help you, and they are not like the "seasonal help" at other bigger pool places. I bought a new Shark automatic pool cleaner for my above ground pool. I love it and I don't have to spend my time vacumning the pool anymore! I think they are the only place around here that carrys that cleaner. And, I did not have to wait in long lines at the register like the other pool places nearby on the Post Rd. Also, the prices are very competitive!
