My experience with Curt Cooper and Avalon pools has been a negative one. I only wish I would have researched pool builders a bit more. I will give Curt the benefit of the doubt and assume that he is a nice, stand up guy. I believe that he wants to build a great pool with as few complications as possible, with as little stress as possible. But, he just can't do it. He doesn't have the organizational skills to stay on top of the project or the accountability to admit to mistakes when he makes them. In the end, you will get your pool. It will be about 6 months late and only after many threats of legal action. You will have to have another company come behind and repair poor plumbing and mechanical work. So, shop around. Ask for a list of his last 10 pools and call the owners. If you feel that Avalon is the company for you, I would highly recommend having an attorney draw up the contract and be available for litigation.

We Love our pool! Curt's design worked miracles on our previously-unusable backyard. He and his master stone masons turned a steep. overgrown slope into a gorgeous pool with a slide, rock walls, and waterfalls. Curt worked with our existing landscaping to make the new pool flow seamlessly into our existing patio and an old stone wall. His ability to imagine and create beautiful pool designs is second to none. Thank you N & T Atl.

Please understand i am not in the habit of writing appreciation letters, however, i believe in the case it is certainly warranted. During the course building of my home, i encountered the usual problems and conflicts, with the exception of a new pool, deck and water features all designed and installed by avalon pools. I solicited and reviewed several proposals from local well known companies. The personal proposal and guidance from Avalon Presented by Curt, made the choice easy. Curt was understanding of out desires for the new pool and he immediately had a vision of the way it should look and perform. Curt was a pleasure to work with and he made building the pool fun. I found him to be honest and forthcoming. After completion, he has responded to any issues or request we had. The pool is beautiful and is the highlight of our new home. I highly recommend Avalon Pools as a qualified and knowledgeable company. -DS atlanta

I would like to express our excitment with the pool that Avalon Pools built winter. It turned out to be the best pool in the neighborhood. Curt Had a design that would knock your soxes off. The project went very smooth from start to finish. Using only top of the line equipment and beautiful materials to complete a picture perfect backyard. We highly recommend Avalon Pools to anyone that is interested in building a pool that is top quality with the beauty to go with it.

Where do I start with this company? They quoted the brand of equipment that I specified then substituted inferior equipment without discussing with me. the attempted to substitute the pebble-tec plaster for a knock-off, then they took the money for putting a deck around the pool and then refused to do the work. I finally sued them in magistrate court and won. Life is too short for this!
