A Different Kind of Pool Company

A Different Kind of Pool Company

A swimming pool is easy to sell, because everyone wants one.Don Daigle

Installing an in-ground swimming pool is a big event. It represents a significant investment in time and money, but it is something that homeowners place a high value on.

Pool companies in southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts have a notorious reputation for not delivering on their promises. Construction projects that drag on longer than they should, poor communication, and hidden charges are a few of the complaints we hear about our competitors. What all these problems have in common is that most pool companies are selling pools as a product, not offering pool services.

Service first. I started my pool career in 1994 with a large pool company in New England; first as a service technician, then installer, and finally a managing supervisor. This experience helped me to truly understand what was lacking in many pool companies today. It inspired me to start my own pool company with this simple motto: “Service First.”

So, when I started Daigle Pool Servicing Company in 2005, we established our company on three basic principles:

To limit the use of sub-contractors. Daigle Pool Servicing Co. uses our own employees to do above- ground and in-ground pool installations, pool liner replacements, pool safety cover installations and servicing of pool equipment. The only subcontractors that we employ in our pool construction projects are excavation contractors, electricians, and pool deck contractors.

Best prices and products. To offer the best prices and the best products, and stand behind them 100%. To have the best warranties in the pool industry, you have to install the best pool products. Our exclusive dealership status with some of the best brands in the pool industry allows us to offer these professional pool products at near wholesale prices. We offer quality swimming pools including in-ground pools, above-ground pools and pool products.

Our well-trained, experienced in-house installation crews help us to keep costs down by not paying subcontractors. Because we know the quality of the work performed, we are confident to honor not only manufacturer warranties but exclusive warranties available only through Daigle Servicing Company.

To provide continuing customer support. We didn’t start out as a construction company. In the beginning, Daigle Servicing performed more pool maintenance and pool product services than pool installations and pool liner replacements.

We incorporated every aspect of maintenance and service to teach our customers how to maintain their own pool. From free in-store pool water balancing services, to pool school, or servicing all the equipment we install - our customers always know we are just a phone call away.

Call us today for a free consultation on installing your swimming pool, upgrading equipment or any other way we can help you to improve your summer swimming experience. You will discover why we are “a different kind of pool company!”
