What Our Customers are Saying
Installers started Wednesday and just finished our 27′ round above ground pool today (Friday). Very pleased with everything. Fair pricing. Tommy and Allison very patient and easy to work with. Donny, Freddy and Dallas (installers) were very polite and informative, did a terrific job getting us all set up then giving a “how to” brief regarding the sand filter. Left our yard in excellent condition….cleaned up behind their work, didn’t tear up anything unrelated to the pool. I would recommend PP&S to anyone considering a pool.
We had a pool that we had not used for about 3 years due to the filter not working. We contacted Pools, Patios and Spas to come and see if they could fix everything for us. They came out and fixed our filter and tried to help us rid the algae, however, the algae was just too much. We decided to drain the pool and when we did we discovered we must have a hole in the liner. Riley and Ryan came right out to help us patch it as our pool was dry and a storm was coming in. We decided to replace the liner but when they removed the old one we found that our pool had a lot of issues and we would need a new pool. We had issue after issue (no fault of theirs) but Riley and Ryan (the installers) worked very hard (mostly in the pouring rain) to make sure everything was right and done in a timely manner. Sheila and Allison at the store were super helpful through it all as well. Would highly recommend them as they work hard to ensure customer satisfaction.
Had an in ground liner replaced. They did an awesome job. Professional, fast, and the price was right. Thank you Pools Patios and Spas!!

Great prices, Great people, very helpful and always makes sure customers are taken care of! We had our pool installed within a week and we couldn’t be more happy!
Enjoyed our spa buying experience with these guys, they had the Passion spa model I was looking for on hand and was able to deliver it on a short turnaround. Being our first spa we did have start up confusion which these guys fixed within 24 hrs. Not only did we buy a spa from them but our daughter’s first swim lessons were held here over the past summer. look forward to future yard upgrades with Alison and this company.
We had a absolutely awesome experience!! I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get a pool installed. Ryan and his crew were very knowledgeable, very polite, hard working, and a joy to have complete our pool install. If your in the market for some good work, give pools patios and spas a call!!
