"My home was built in 1970.  We had our pool refinished in 2005.  I thought I had handled the process well, getting multiple bids and not selecting my contractor by price alone.  In a short five years the finish was cracking and began separating from the stairs.  It was clear to me that the work was not done properly.  I contacted the contractor who had done the work.  He let me know that the warranty period had expired and he was not going to fix the problem at no cost.  To be honest, I didn’t want him working on my pool again anyway. 
 
My 2010 pool contractor search led me to Rich Tarricone of Aquatic Pool Systems.  Rich has a wonderful ability to connect with people and he did immediately with both my wife and me.   At the outset Rich took the time to learn our objectives.  Throughout the (Pebble Tec) project Rich suggested things we had not considered.  In each case we followed Rich’s ideas and the project was enhanced by every one.  It is great to find a contractor who personally adds value.  His extensive knowledge and network of specialists are an outstanding team.  As I look back at the project and at the end result I am very, very pleased.  I highly recommend Rich to anyone who needs help with their pool."

"I have been a client of Rich Tarricone for the last few years. He was highly recommended to me by a pool designer in the Tampa area.
Over the years I have leaned to appreciate Rich's knowledge, his contact list, and more importantly his unique interest in customer service, reliability and family.
As a former polymer chemist I have learned a lot from Rich about the relationship between pool chemistry and (filters,heaters,pumps,pipes and pool coatings). Rich has over 25 years experience in diagnosing and solving complex pool related problems from a simple 12,000 gallon backyard pool to a 120,000 gallon hotel/condo pool.
I have spoken to many pool builders and they have all spoke very highly of Rich being both knowledgeable and also a good guy." J Clark SARASOTA FL
Contractor Note: Has recently built a second pool and demanded it contain PebbleTec!

Hi Rich,

 

Just wanted you to know how pleased we are with the energy savings we're having since you installed the IntelliFlo pump!  Before installation (11/1/11), our electric bill was $339.67.  Our first bill after that that was $241.87.  Since then we have been running the pump on the #2 speed and our bill this month was $85.71!  Wow!  That's the lowest electric bill we've had in 8 years.  We are more than pleased with the IntelliFlo and find it is rapidly paying for itself. 

 

Thanks again!

Jontie and David H........Osprey

"Hi Rich,

I hope you are doing well. It’s been a while since I’ve followed up. After all of your input a couple of years ago we have had a beautiful pool each summer. So Thank You. You showed me how to add simple household chemicals and have a cleaner pool than all of my friends paying for the high priced stuff."
 
...R. Bowe

Rich,
That cleaner (robot) is amazing!!  Thank you so much. I'm glad I know someone like you. Take care, Ryan

I hope I can make it up to you with future referrals, (or your having to replace my skimmer in the future, as you have predicted). Feel free to use me as a reference in any capacity, as I was very happy with your (Pebble Tec project) work, and business practices."
