We recently updated the interior of our pool. Here’s the NEW LOOK with PEBBLE TEC—Laguna Blue. I didn’t realize that when they call it PEBBLE TEC, it would actually look like pebbles when the sun is shining on it! Who would have thought???

We used NELSON POOL COMPANY to do the job and Nelson arranged everything. They first had to remove the old finish and then prepare it for the PebbleTec people to come in a few days later. Nelson started on Wednesday by first draining the pool. Then the hard work began. His crew had to chisel off the old surface of the pool and they started about 1 foot below the old tile. They also chiseled off the surface on the steps and spa. Then they acid-washed the pool. We were surprised they worked such long hours. They began around 7:30 in the morning and they worked till after 8 PM. On Thursday they applied BondTite to the surface and started a pump to pull all the water that was under the pool. The pump had to run continuously so the water pressure wouldn’t build up and cause the empty pool to pop up out of the ground!

It was amazing to watch how involved this process was. I had no idea there would be water under a pool or that an empty pool could be a nightmare for a homeowner. Friday a crew from Pool One arrived to apply the PebbleTec. There must have been 8-9 guys working non-stop to do that. In our original pool, 60% of the surface was concrete and concrete is susceptible to pool chemicals. The original pool color was white but when our pool was drained, it was green due to copper staining and chemical attack. With the new PebbleTec finish, less than 20% of the concrete will be exposed because it’s made up of 80% pebbles. The pebbles are supposed to be less subject to attack by chemicals. Saturday morning the finisher came in and worked another 2 hours and it was his job to bring out the sparkle and do the final clean-up and touch-up. He started the water about 10 AM and said it would take 24 hours to fill and he told us not to turn the water off until the pool was filled. Once the pool was filled, we had a blue pool to match the LAGUNA BLUE color we had chosen. What most astonished me though was the appearance of pebbles on the surface reflection of the water!! PRETTY NEAT!!

We were extremely impressed with the quality of work we received and with the work ethic of NELSON POOL COMPANY. If you’re looking for a super contractor with whom to do business, you can’t go wrong with NELSON POOL COMPANY. He won’t be the cheapest but Larry and I have always believed that you get what you pay for and with NELSON POOL COMPANY, we got the best!!

They are licensed which is definitely a plus as most pool cleaners we’ve had were not. Great price as well. I would recommend to everyone!

Oscar Macintosh

We were so impressed with Nelson and his crew from the very start. Nelson made the initial consultation extremely informative and it made us feel very comfortable. The office staff was very communicative during the whole project. Once construction started, the crew was very polite and professional. Once done, everything we wanted was done beyond our expectations. Nelson was there the whole way through, even coming all the way across town after hours to help us some concerns we had. That alone was above and beyond. We can’t say enough about Nelson Pool Company and we highly recommend them for all your pool related needs. Thank you Nelson. We are so very pleased with our pool.

Josh and Paula Moffet

Nelson Pool Company is outstanding! Our old, in ground pool, had many deep stains for years and years. Nelson tested several possible solutions. He suggested that an acid wash and proper maintenance might solve the problem. We also wanted to install overflow equipment so that we did not have to do it manually. We also needed a new ladder and entry railing. Nelson said his company could do it all. His cost estimate was reasonable and very competitive! His crew was a delight. They were friendly, knowledgeable, clean working and professional. The project took two days and the results are incredibly good! The stains are gone, the water sparkles and the new equipment looks great! Nelson also suggested a simple and inexpensive way to keep the stains away. He is truly brilliant about pool repair and maintenance. Plus, he is nice to speak with and very, patient! We are very appreciative and grateful to Nelson and his crew for making our pool look new again. We strongly recommend him for anything that has to do with your pool. We think he is exceptional. You will too!

They also noticed another problem and rescheduled for another fix. They also gave suggestions and mentioned things I need to look out for. I highly recommend them!

Jeffrey Young

Nelson’s customer service is superior. He is very particular about his work and is very responsive to the customer. We had his company handle a complete renovation of a 25 year old pool, screened enclosure, and deck. His attention to detail and the time he spent helping us decide on the project specifications was what led me to contract with him. His assistants, in particular Lien, and his crew are hard workers and were also extremely helpful when questions arose. I would highly recommend his company to anyone who needs a pool renovation or to correct a problem. He is an expert in leak detection and repair as well.

Richard Carnivale

Bdi Jdej

I would highly recommend Nelson Pool company.We were in desperate need of a refinish of our dusting pool. The process from beginning to end was amazing. They gave us a free estimate, Nelson looked over our pool and told us what to expect. They chipped off our tiles, sanded down the existing bottom. We picked out the new bottom surface (mini pebbles aqua cool) and waterline tiles. They installed everything in a timely manner and answered all questions. Lien, who is the office manager, communicates effectively and promptly. We are still in the “start up” phase of balancing chemicals and haven’t been able to swim in it yet, but it’s been a pleasure working with this company. Highly recommend.

Chrissy Schmidt

Nelson Pool Company repaired a six-foot crack; reattached loose coping tiles; and resurfaced my swimming pool — all within one week. Nelson was personable, knowledgeable and spent the time to fully explain what he would do. His contract was clear and complete. He personally visited the job site several times. His technicians were careful, proficient and well organized. Nelson’s bid was in line with others at $8,500 for my 8 by 46 foot pool. I am extremely pleased with the result and highly recommend the Nelson Pool Company.

Jimmys Voice

The two young men who worked on our pool problems were very efficient and hard working!

Joann Johns

I wasn’t sure if I had a leak in my pool. I was putting water and my chemicals were out of wack. Called the office and the lady that answered the phone explained me how to do a bucket test. She was very friendly and 24 hours after my call, she called back to do a follow up.I was indeed loosing water due to a leak. She scheduled a leak detection and a couple days latter the technician came.He meticulously checked my equipment for leaks, dove into the spa and the pool, found the leak, sealed using the epoxy (missing grout in waterline tiles) and gave me a price for the permanent repair of another leak that was in the jets line.The office called and put me on the schedule for next week for the repair.Same tech came (he is very good and for what he told me he’s been with the company for 8 years) and fixed my leak.I will highly recommend Nelson Pool Company to my neighbors, friends and family.

Danielle McDougal

Nelson got me scheduled within two days of my call for service. They arrived promptly and did a thorough inspection and repair. I had them change the bulbs in both my pool light and spa light, and then locate and repair a leak around my pool skimmer. Would recommend to anyone.

David Fox

Nelson Pool Co. has been a very good contractor for us. He recently replaced my pool heater. His crew was very efficient and timely. His price was very competitive. He did exactly what he promised. I will use his service again when needed.

Doctor Badger

They did a great job, my pool had a leak for a couple of months and nobody was able to find it, i paid several companies before and the result was the same (no leak found ) they use the ultrasonic equipment and they pinpointed the leak within 2 hours! Thank you so much!

Jackie Jefferson

Great work and perfect customer service. Really recommend doing business with them.

Miguel Lopez

Experienced and reliable. The first person I call when I have a problem. Top quality results every time!!

Chris Smith

Great job can highly recommend them you do not need to go any other place. The man that came was so good

Malou Rosenquist

Maintaining a pool in Florida is not for the faint-hearted as the equipment rarely functions properly for more than a few years. Finding dependable and conscientious vendors is quite difficult but I can honestly say that Nelson Pool Company has been my favorite for almost 10 years. They keep their appointments, are fairly priced, keep excellent records of the work performed and associated warranties and do not try and sell something that you truly do not need. I highly recommend Nelson Pools.

Leigh

They came in and located a leak and performed a repair the same day.Highly recommend.

Bianca Lianne

I had a pasta strainer for a pool that nobody could figure out the leaks, but Nelson came in, figured out and fixed it!

Dorian Vee

Excellent customer service and the owner is amazing!

Chris Wood

I had 5 different pool companies working in my leaky pool, and no one could figure out where the leak was. My neighbor gave me Nelson Pool Companys’ phone number. I called him, he returned my call withing few minutes, and the next day they were here. They found the problem in less than 2 Hrs. It was a leak under the pool shell. They repaired it the next day and the pool was up and running 24 Hrs later.

They did such a great job!!!

Thank you NELSON !!!!

Nelson Pool Company was recommended to me by a friend for pool leak. After losing water for a while and having to refill my pool consistently, I decided I needed a repair. I called and I spoke with Tyler, he was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Nelson’s technicians came out and they found a broken pipe going to my autofill and repaired it in no time. Highly recommend these guys.

Nelson Pools was the first choice of our long standing pool maintenance technician at the Venetian River and Golf club. Thea handled the contract with diligence and professionalism and answered every question promptly Anthony managed the large project of resurfacing our infinity pool and has been outstanding. Each crew member has been wonderful and cleaned up any debris created. The outcome has been a beautiful pool resurface and a repaired large leaking crack. I recommend Nelson to anyone needing pool work. Superb organization.

I chose this company to remodel my inground concrete pool based on the company's online reviews. While it wasn't the lowest estimate I received to do the pool the results were STUNNING. I can not believe how well the pool came out and dealing with project manager Thea was a pleasure. She was always very professional and polite during the entire construction period. She kept me well informed and her scheduling was spot on. The construction crew's were excellent and master craftsmen in their respective trades. I couldn't be happier in the final product and I highly recommend the NelsonPool Company

We recently had large semi circular paver stone driveway also repaired by Nelson which had been disrupted by large oak tree roots and deterioration of concrete borders. The crew showed up on time and did the repair in a day and half and even fixed some areas that I hadn't noticed.

Nelson and his team did an amazing job of refinishing and updating our 20+ year old pool. The team worked through ever-changing weather conditions (rain, hot, cold, etc.) and got the work done on schedule. Thea, our project manager, provided excellent support, keeping up communications and was joy to work with. I will strongly recommend Nelson Pool to all my friends and neighbors!

We recently had our old pool repaired for a leak, steps and a bench installed, new pavers and coping, and resurfaced by Nelson Pool Company. The scheduling, workmanship and workers were what you would want if you decide to do a job like this. They were on time, did a professional job, and finished a day earlier than we were told. Now our pool looks like a brand new expensive pool for a very reasonable price. We wouldn't recommend anyone else for this type of pool work. We also had a patio in the front that an inexperienced contractor started for us and didn't finish. Nelson gave us a reasonable price to remove and install the same pavers that they put around the pool and it turned out stunning. We love our pool and patio! Thank you Nelson and Staff!

Nelson Pools did a phenomenal job fixing one of our clients pools. The communication was exceptional and they delivered on everything they promised. Tyler, the point person that I worked with, was as patient explaining everything as he was extremely responsive!
If you’re having challenges with your pool and want them to be taken cared of professionally like our clients above, contact Nelson Pool Company today. We can give you plenty of options so that you can choose the best decision.

Once you hire Nelson Pool Services, you’ll have nothing more to worry about. Just leave the maintenance of your pool to our team and we will handle it with great care. We offer a wide range of pool-related services to handle your every need.

  • Pool Leak Detection Leaks commonly occur in the pool shell that has been cut out to accommodate fittings, jets, pool lights, skimmers, or drains. Leaks can also occur by equipment or in underground lines. Elevated water features such as fountains and spas can cause the pool to lose water if they do not have properly functioning check valves. No matter where the source of the leak is, we aim to find it as quickly as possible.
  • Pool Repairs Once we have detected the source of the leak, our technicians will promptly address the issue. A leak in a swimming pool can cause substantial damage to the walls and floors. We fill them with caulk and epoxy resin which effectively binds the structure together. The binding is further strengthened by the use of a customized mixture. Our technicians work systematically to service and repair the affected area quickly and efficiently.
  • Pool Renovations From smaller projects such as tile work, coping stones, handrails, autofill, and skimmer installations to larger projects such as the addition of waterfalls and spas, resurfacing, major structural repair, and even complete swimming pool redesigns… no project is too large or small for us!
If you think that you have a leak in your pool or in need of a complete pool renovation, just give us a call so our team can quickly schedule a visit. If you’re worried about the costs, we can give you a free estimate too. Our team of experts will visit your pool and make all the arrangements needed to fit into your busy schedule. We are focused on creating quality work and relationships and look forward to working with you.
