Cartridge filter, Diatomaceous Earth filter or Sand filter, which is best?
You'll get various opinions, but there is only one correct answer and we'll tell you which one and why. We know the best type of pool filter, pump and heater, the best type of automatic pool cleaner, the pros and cons of salt systems, which chemicals to use in a pool and which chemicals never to use (never mind that they are regularly sold to pool owners), and we'll be happy to share this information and much more with you.
Two decades of caring for our customer's pools and recommending repairs as if the pool were our own has gained our customer's loyalty and trust.
Give us a call and let Papago Pool Service earn your trust.
I've had some really bad experiences with other pool services in the valley. It's tough to find good service lately. However, Mark does a fantastic job! My pool is the cleanest and bluest I have ever seen it since I bought my house. Thank you Papago Pool Service for the excellent service. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality pool service at a reasonable cost.

Ive been using this guy for almost a year now and he had been ultra-reliable. Last month he was able to troubleshoot and fix a repair in a day and a half. This also included him coming out on Saturday after he picked up the parts on Friday. Great work and the pool works and looks awesome.

I have a home warranty which covers pool repair. I have had different companies out to repair various problems and each time I was made to feel the problem was my fault and the warranty would not apply. I finally got tired of this and called Papago Pool Repair and Mark responded. He identified the problem and also had a solution to a timer problem I had. He gave me a fair quote and was there the early next morning. He replaced the pump and timer and fixed what the other companies messed up. He checked everything else out and then gave me tips on how to get the most from my pool chemicals and how to use them. He is a quality professional. I would be proud to recommend him to anyone.

Since I started using Papago Pool Service in 2009, I've been extremely satisfied with their work. Last week they notified me that my pump motor was out and Mark came by the next day and did the repair. I never have to worry about my pool and that's very valuable to me.

My husband takes care of the pool cleaning, but when there is a problem we call Papago Pool Service. It is a delight to have Mark come out because he not only addresses our problem, he checks everything out while he is here and he gives my husband tips and puts my mind at ease. I have complete confidence in Papago Pool Service and wouldn't call anyone else.

I've used Papago for almost 11 years now. I only need a few basic things from my pool service - show up every week on time, keep the pool looking great, don't tell me I need something if I don't, and no surprises. My swimming pool is the one absolutely worry-free thing around my house. The couple of times I needed repair work, I know that the price was right (I checked!). It was done right and done quickly. Really - they're that good. Love being able to tell other people about a great service company - there are so few out there - in any field.
