Absolutely the worst pool company. Greg Buchnowski (the owner)is nothing more than a crook. He sweet talks and promises you a great pool at a great price. What you get is a multi-thousand dollar hole in the ground that sits for months until you get fed up and have someone else finish it. I agree with the other reviewers and believe them 100%. I have a $25,000 hole in the ground myself. My contract was signed in December and it's now June. Hey Kudzu, make a Zero rating available, 1 star is still way to good for this guy!

Rating Is really a 0---- This is the WORST Pool Company Ever. BEWARE!!!STOP!!!READ!!! Signed a contract on Oct, 28 2006. In March 2007 only had a hole and pool walls after $18,000.00. Owner has been saying they will be out to finish, they can finish in a week. Never see them again. After your initial very large payments to honor your contract, everything goes smoothly for the hole to be dug and walls to be put in then nothing. By the time he completes the two days of work ( which will take him a week or two to do ) you have paid him 90% of the cost to get your pool. YOU WILL NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN. HE WILL NOT RETURN YOUR CALLS. You will be left with a hole and will be out your money, you will not have your pumps or any other equipment. You will have to hire someone else to finish and it will not be cheap. BEWARE!!! He is a smooth talker driving a Porche, living in a rented dive, business is a falling down shack. He will supply you with excellent references...they are all apparently bogus.Check the better Business Bureau but they can not help you if you have already paid him money.BEWARE!!!!!BEWARE!!!!SCAM!!!SCAM!!! He also goes under the name of Georgia Pool Distributor.

I purchased an above-ground swimming pool from this company. After they torn up my yard, collasped the pool twice and installed it incorrectly - the pool finally was useable after calling another company to fix it. Two years later the top joints and rail holding the liner to the pool have completely rusted out, due to the manufacturer not coating these items properly. I've tried to have this company order the parts (at my cost) so that I can repair the pool before it falls apart. Georgia Swimming Pool Distributors has been unresponsive - promising to order the parts and then never getting them. I've been to the store 4 times, I've called repeatedly and still no response. This apparently is the only company that deals with this particular brand of pool and they have the worst customer service I've every seen. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! I'd rate them a 0 if I could!!!Your money will be taken and the pool may not be completed. There are so many complaints that they can't keep the people straight and get the BBB reports filed against them mixed up. Non-english speaking workers are used to build the pool, who can't communicate with the customers. The American owners promise to be onsite during the building, and aren't.The owner is rude and tries to use intimidation when you confront him about his failure to honor his contract. Use this company only if you want to have shoddy work, no shows and an incomplete pool. Unfortunately, we found out too late!!!
