Testimonials

DBG

We highly recommend Pools By Design! Ken, Maryanne, Tracy and all of the hardworking crews were top notch! From start to finish we were kept informed of the progress and knew exactly when each step would be completed. We were impressed with how quickly our pool was installed, especially with us living in a rural area. Pools by Design offered the most affordable price and installed a beautiful pool that we will enjoy for many years to come!

RICK AND TERESA ROBERTS

When we decided to put a pool in our irregular and large backyard, we knew that we would need someone with a vision. My husband and I researched pool companies in our area, read the horror stories of bankrupt companies and got estimates from those we found reputable. Ken came out and clearly stood out from the rest of the pool companies we had visited. He designed a pool that fit our space beautifully, his wife, Marianne, brought it to life with a landscape design that we could easily visualize and they made it a reality right in our backyard! Every step was overseen well and any problem that arose was quickly resolved by a great staff. Scott was excellent to work with and if he didn’t have an answer himself, quickly found one. We made the right choice with Ken and Pools by Design!

AARON PRATT

While researching pool companies for our new home build, I was looking for a pool company that could help conceptualize, give advice and in the end, build a pool that had fit our family needs. While several came out and provided us bids, Ken and Pools by Design really stood out. It was actually a very easy choice. He not only gave great suggestions, but he also worked seamlessly with our builder and landscaper. He builds pools the way he would want one built for himself. His communication while building was timely and so was his over all scheduling, finishing right on time. He uses the best of the best from an equipment standpoint and sub stand point. His work on our pool and the rest of his portfolio speaks for itself! We couldn’t be happier and refer all of our pool shopping friends to Ken and Pools by Design!

I have been an architect in Tucson since 1998. Ken has built so many of my client’s pools and each and every one is built to perfection. Not one of them has ever had issues! I would highly suggest using Ken as your pool builder.

We had the pleasure of photographing a pool that Ken and Pools by Design created. It was more than just a pool. It was a complete outdoor masterpiece. You can tell that his attention to detail is second to none. I would be proud to have a pool created by Pools by Design in my yard.
