We contracted with Summit Pool and Spa in 1997 to build our backyard Jacuzzi. Our experience with this company was excellent. They finished the job on time and with no unexpected costs. We have been using our Jacuzzi for nearly two years now and have experienced no problems with any recommended equipment or workmanship. We were very happy with this company, especially Dave Zailer, who was professional and personable in his dealings.

Our experience with the construction of our pool and spa by Summit Pool and Spa was nothing short of outstanding.

In particular, what is known as a difficult process, David Zailer was at our home every single day throughout the entire construction to see that the completion not only met deadlines but to maintain outstanding quality.

A great experience and a super finished product.

Thank you for the way you rebuilt our pool and spa after the firestorms. We are very happy with the way our pool turned out. You and your crews did a great job, very professional and timely. We especially enjoy the waterfall you suggested and the remote controls of the pool and spa.

You did a fantastic job with the project. Unlike other dealings with past contractors where I had to constantly keep after them, you worked ahead of schedule and gave my family daily status reports. With past contractors, I always worried about whether they would abandon our projects without them being completed. I never once worried about you. In fact, we went on vacation for two weeks to find that you had completed more than what was scheduled. We enjoy the pool and spa immensely. We’re happy with the workmanship and will be delighted to provide you with an enthusiastic referral. If we ever need to build another pool in the area, rest assured that you would be the only person we will call. We know we could never find a more honest person. You restored our confidence in human nature, especially contractors.

Thank you! Thank you! We appreciate so much your expertise and knowledge in the building of our pool as well as your efficiency and organizational skills. Where other pool builders lack, you excel. You have been very accommodating in meeting our needs and easy to work with. We are also grateful that you thought about our three sons’ summer needs and finished our swimming pool ahead of schedule. All of the subcontractors whom you used were very professional and courteous, and every one of them commented on how much they enjoyed working with you. You always stayed on top of everything and really put our minds at ease by being at the site several times a day. Thank you for always making yourself available and returning our phone calls immediately.

Just a note to let you know how pleased Bob and I are with our spa. In spite of our deciding to put the spa in during the rainy season, we did survive, and it was worth it. During the course of finishing our home, we working with a variety of subcontractors, and many of them added to our stress level by not being responsible and professional as we had expected. We really appreciated your phone calls bringing us up to date when something unexpected (like rain) came up, you are carefully overseeing the work as it progressed and estimating the work properly s that there were no financial surprises once we were into the project. We are glad that we chose you to install our spa. It was refreshing to work with you and know that there are still people who take pride in their work and care about their clients.
