Customers Love Us

From Yelp:

“We've been with the Del Rancho Pool & Spa team since 2015 for our pool maintenance. They are super professional and friendly, and have never missed a week.  Really great customer service and courteous staff.  
We also went with Del Rancho Pool for our pool remodel. Chuck Grosse and Ken Kirven are awesome. Very professional, Chuck was patient and advised us on how to go about choosing the right materials and color, etc. for our pool. The demo team did a super job, clean, courteous. Chuck recommended the Poolsafe brand for our pool cover, which is just fantastic and looks & works great.
We are so happy with the result. Highly recommended!”

From NextDoor:

“This year I worked with Chuck Groose and Ken Kirven in updating and resurfacing my existing pool, my outdoor covered family room and creating a new build full service outdoor kitchen.  Being a designer and working with contractors often I have high standards and they were met 100%.  They are experienced, reasonably priced and timely.  I would recommend them over and over again.”
