I recently got a company  based near Mazarron to construct a pool for me and wanted to warn people about there methods.

I followed the terms of the contract making payments as required along the way and the contract stated that the final payment was due 7 days after completion of work. 2 days after the work was finished i was threatened with violence if i did not pay straight away. When i said that the contract said 7 days i was subjected to foul language and told that a bulldozer would be there in the morning to knock the pool down if i did´nt pay. The amount outstanding by the way was 6000 euros!

Each day then i received further threats and promises to come and sort me out and not to mess with them but i held my nerve and only paid on the 7th day. To top it all they then wanted extra money from me for doing more work than they thought they had to do.By this time i paid them to get rid of them.

Obviously it goes without saying that during the works they did´nt turn up when they were supposed to and i had to constantly chase them which is a shame because the pool when finished is actually very good.


So the moral is beware!

Obviously i don´t want to name the company for the above reasons but it just goes to show that these companies exist and have no morals! God knows what will happen if i have a guarantee problem or if they don´t sort out the licence as they originally said they would.

That's a scary story!

Were they recommended to you? I do hope they get your licence sorted, but if I was you, I would check with the Town Hall yourself.

Ask Justing if you can name and shame them, it would be a warning to others in your area.

If Justin doesn't agree, just gives the forum some clues!!!

I hope you enjoy your pool.................can I give one word of advice though?

My Brother has a pool installed and one night, in the early hours, he heard a strange noise.

~On investigating, some moran had opened the control box and truned the dial to "drain"!!!!

So put a strong padlock on the control box!

Kind regards,
