We contracted Riviera pools to build a custom pool for us late last year. The pool began January 2nd, 2013 and was just completed. While the construction process took significantly longer than quoted or expected, the final product looks amazing. We went with most of the options that gave us as close to a maintenance free pool as possible.Here is what we have:* 6' Sun shelf for the kids, with a foam jet as a fountain in the middle* Spa with 8 jets.* 3' Sheer decent waterfall, with rosette water features on both sides* Solar system (has been great!)* A&A in-Floor cleaning system with dual skimmers, which was ideal, since we didn't get a screen enclosure. * Filter, heater and pumps are all Pentair, which has amazing support and knowledge of their products.* Grand Effects Fire Bowls on the corners, tied into the pool automation* Artistic Pavers * Holloway coping (the only thing I don't recommend that we purchased. The product took forever to get and is soft, so you have to be very careful with it)There were some hiccups, as with any construction project. We brought the issues up to them as they came up, and eventually everything was fixed to our satisfaction. The staff is always friendly and willing to talk.
LOVE our pool! So does everyone who sees it! Like all construction projects, there were a few hiccups, but they were always addressed and fixed immediately. Eric and David really listened to us and did their best to give us exactly what we wanted. Even now, 6 months after we're finished, I've called with questions and they've been great to answer all of them, or even come out if needed. I have a friend who just built a pool with another company, and it made me appreciate Larsen's even more. She wasn't shown how to take care of her pool and they won't return her calls. Larsen's made sure we had everything we need to care for our pool and were comfortable doing it. Construction is stressful, and you need a company that's on top of things and keeping you in the loop. I wouldn't go with anyone else!
