Basic Information
Paul Wilder's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
I retained Steve Consterdine and his associates at Monkey Rock Pools to provide full pool service from late 2011 through August of 2016. Though I thought everything was included with the service I was paying for; a few months later after a couple weeks of my pool not looking its best; Steve advised he had tested for phosphates and the phosphate level in my pool was very high. He indicated that due to the expense of the treatment chemicals; they were not included. Aside from that annoyance; Steve continued to provide pretty good service; though his repairs to my pool scrubber always somehow took multiple weeks; as though he was overbooked and didn’t have time to service equipment in a timely manner. Things continued to be pretty good until my pool got assigned to one of his associates. Communication regarding needed repairs and timing of new filter purchases declined to almost none. My pool was not as clear as it should have been for several weeks this past summer since the tech he was sending to my house apparently did not spend the amount of time that Steve used to spend making sure everything was good. I advised Steve on a couple occasions that I’d appreciate better communication regarding when things needed to be serviced; however they never really got better at telling me about things that needed to be taken care of. It was Steve’s handling of the latest issue that occurred was inexcusably unprofessional and pushed me to immediately retain a new pool service company. My impeller had broken and I authorized Steve to repair it for me. After his determining the problem and my immediately authorizing the repair on Tuesday; the following Sunday afternoon he texted me out of the blue and asked if he could come over to perform the repairs. I was out but told him he could come on over and take care of it. By the time I got home; I had forgotten about his text; so it wasn’t until later in the week I remembered and went to look to see if he had actually done the repair work. He had left the old broken impeller; however what I noted more immediately was the water squirting out of two pinhole cracks in the impeller pump housing. I immediately took a photo of the problem and sent it to him; as I was annoyed that he had not contacted me to disclose the damage and proactively suggest a fix for it. After waiting a week for a reply; I thought perhaps my email got lost. I reached out again and received a reply where he stated “I did not reply due to the fact I would say something I may later regret. I gave up my one day off to get your pool water circulating…” So instead of an apology and suggestion for corrective action; I received a message advising that he was apparently upset to the point he felt he may say something he would regret. I proceeded to inquire as to how he intended to resolve the damages to try to reach an agreeable resolution to the issue he created; however he simply sent me a final invoice and has been completely non-responsive to my repeated attempts to contact him via text and email. I finally paid the amount he requested on the final invoice in the interest of not having to waste additional time and money trying to contact him. He never reached out to offer an apology and he never attempted to fix the problem he created. His complete disregard for my time and his lack of communication ultimately ending with his refusal to reply to me at all speaks volumes about his personality and how you can expect to be treated as a valued customer of Monkey Rock Pools. Given my experiences; I would suggest that you save yourself the headache of trying to deal with Steve and company and just find a pool service other than Monkey Rock Pools to begin with.

After talking with several other dealerships; my wife and I ended up buying a new MDX from John Leinbach at Crown Acura due to the favorable pricing the dealership was able to work out for us and the willingness of the Crown Acura management team to quickly procure the exact vehicle we were looking for. John kept us well informed and made the car buying experience as pleasant as possible; even coming in during his week off to finish the transaction as soon as our car arrived.
