Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that America’s Swimming Pool Company is a 2019 award winner!

“I have had the good fortune to work primarily with Anna during our transition over to ASP this summer. She has been both professional and fun to work with! She and her team have been quite responsive while we figure out the kinks of having never had a pool and not knowing what to expect… she talks me through a good bit and will request photos if needed to show her team and to gain some expertise if that’s also what it takes. I would recommend ASP again and again!” -Annie S.

As one of the top 10 pool service and repair businesses in the entire state of Virginia, America’s Swimming Pool Service has a 90.35 Rating Score™ and a 4.63 average star rating on verified review sites, as well as tons of positive reviews just like this.

Not Your Average Pool Service and Repair Company

We spoke with Anna King, the office manager and head of customer service at America’s Swimming Pool Company, about the business’ online success.

During our conversation with Anna, it became abundantly clear that the ASP secret to success lies in their ability to offer each customer the utmost service. “We make sure nobody goes unnoticed. We want to deal with any and all issues as quickly and efficiently as possible,” Anna said, when asked what it is that sets America’s Swimming Pool Company apart from other pool services in Virginia. “We are a small business, so we are able to focus on our customers a little more than some of the larger companies.”

Building Success Through Phenomenal Customer Service

The team at ASP works hard to make sure that every customer is happy with the service they’ve received. In Anna’s words, “We strive to make the experience as easy and pleasant as possible for each of our customers.”

As an integral part of an award-winning business, Anna knows what it takes to build an awesome online reputation. Here’s her advice to other businesses:

“Find people that you work well with, and be as honest as possible with your colleagues and clients. If the operations within the business are running smoothly, the client experience will go smoothly as well.”


Congratulations to the team at America’s Swimming Pool Company for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Anna, for taking the time to speak with us!

Thank you!” -Tricia J.

“The experience from sale through installation was fantastic. They shared options that helped us decide on the right hot tub for our use and the hand-off to installation was flawless.

I’m confident the support from NWHS won’t stop at the installation and they’ll be available for any ongoing questions we may have. Great experience.” -Dan B.

“I’ve been the pool manager here at Honeymoon Lake Community Club for the last two years. In that time, [the installer we have worked with] has been stellar in his service.

“Excellent experience! [He] fixed our pool vacuum perfectly, [and he] was such a nice gentleman and very trustworthy! [Our] vacuum works perfect! [I] will never use anyone else! If there was a A+++, that’s my rating!” – Cheri W

Not Your Average Pool Service and Repair Company

Hayward Pool Vac Repair started out as a pool vac repair business, but it has now grown to meet all pool equipment repair needs, including pumps, motors, filters, plumbing, electrical and more.

There are many things that set Hayward Pool Vac Repair apart from other pool companies in Arizona, but according to Woody, the owner of Hayward Pool Vac Repair, it’s his know-how that really sets his company apart.

“I know what I’m doing. I’m going to sell you what you need and get the work done right.”

We asked Woody why he does what he does and how he works to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“I enjoy working with my hands and helping people. Pool repair can turn into a major issue for people, both with their money and time. My goal is to make the situation as low-cost and as stress-free as possible. ”

Building Success With a Strong Work Ethic

Woody credits his company’s strong online reputation to his strong work ethic, as well as to his commitment to being kind to people and to providing honest deals and fair prices to his customers.

“I would like to be treated in a fair and honest way, and that’s the kind of service I provide for my customers.”

The main source of business for Hayward Pool Vac Repair is their online reputation; however, Woody has taken advantage of free advertising on Google and Yelp. Woody created his own website, and he also does his own SEO to keep his company visible.

Woody started building his company with free advertising on Craigslist. But Woody doesn’t have to rely on Craigslist anymore because he now has hundreds of customers, thanks to his commitment to providing good, honest service at all times.

We asked Woody what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

We are excited to say that, due to their more than 100 online reviews and their outstanding 97.66 Rating Score™, Pure Pwr Pools has snagged a spot among the top three pool service and repair companies in the entire state of California! Here are just three of the enthusiastic reviews they’ve received:

“Great company—we especially appreciated how knowledgeable [the person we worked with] was. We’ve been trying for two years to fix the pool solar system and Pure Pwr were the first ones who could actually do it! [They] made sure to explain everything to us, should we have any questions. Also, no pressure to do extra work. [They were] very professional. Danielle made scheduling a breeze, working around our very limited availability.” -Kelly M.

“Pure PWR Pools is awesome! Our pool water heater had been leaking for a few weeks and we finally got around to finding help. The Pure Pwr Pools team [was] super quick to make an appointment. The team showed up on time, fixed everything, and even suggested a few fixes to our pool system to make the pool solar more efficient. I’d 100% recommend them and will be calling them again for any issues that may arise in the future.” -Reina T.

Not Your Average Pool Service and Repair Company

Danielle Erbe, manager and owner of Pure Pwr Pools, spoke with us about her business’ phenomenal online reputation and overall success. If you ask Danielle what sets Pure Pwr apart, she’ll say, “We are intent on making things as “seamless and smooth” as possible. One differentiating factor is that we utilize solar panels to heat the pools, most of our competitors do not do that.”

So, what motivates the Pure Pwr team to do what they do? “We are attempting to be the most energy efficient pool company out there. We want to mitigate the carbon footprint by using solar energy. Our goal is to save the customer money and provide endless knowledge.”

Building Success Through Customer Trust and Loyalty

When asked what her secret to a successful online reputation is, Danielle said, “We really focus on customer service and want the customer to feel comfortable and confident. We’re in constant contact with our customers, always reaching out to see if there is anything that they can do for them. Our team doesn’t push reviews too hard, however, when customers are extremely satisfied, we will ask.”

Before ending our conversation, we wanted to know what advice Danielle had for other businesses. She said, “Earn trust and focus on long-term growth. If you’re going to pay an advertising agency, make sure not to pay a lot of money for no value in return. Utilize social media and get your name out there across all platforms”

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Pool Service and Repair Award Winner: Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair Inc

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that, due to their impressive 96.00 Rating Score™, Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair Inc is a 2018 award winner for pool service and repair companies in Arizona!

If you’re in need of pool service in Gilbert or the surrounding areas, there’s one company that can’t be beat — Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair.

With an emphasis on integrity, the team at Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 5.00 stars and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being rated among the top 10 pool service companies in all of Arizona.

Here is just one of the many five-star reviews their happy customers have given them:

“Clay and his team have provided weekly service for our pool for years now. They are proactive, perform routine/scheduled maintenance, and regularly keep chemicals at the right balance. We have two small, noisy dogs. The Westmoreland team always cheerfully greets our dogs and makes sure the gate is securely shut when they are done with the work. In addition, over a summer holiday weekend, our salt cell went out…Clay personally stopped by to fix it. We have used Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair for years and plan to use them for years to come.” – Jennifer R

Not Your Average Pool Service Company

We sat down with Clay Westmoreland, owner of Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair, to find out what makes the company different.

According to Clay, one of the biggest things that differentiates Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair from other companies is his dedication to taking care of his team.

“I want them to feel empowered and knowledgeable, so they can take exceptional care of our customers. Because they know I trust them and and their commitment to excellence in service, they make sure every customer they help has an outstanding experience. “

We also asked Clay why he does what he does. Here’s what he had to say:

“I believe that no matter what you do, you need to do it well. If I have been given the responsibility and the blessing of running this company, and I want to make sure I deliver the absolute best quality of service possible.”

Building Success Through Integrity and Word of Mouth

Clay credits Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair’s powerful online reputation to the team’s commitment to integrity.

“We really pride ourselves on being completely upfront with our clients when giving quotes for services, and we are always proactively trying to fix any issues that may come up.”

Furthermore, Clay says that following up is key.

“One of the biggest complaints we hear from clients about companies is a lack of follow up. We make sure we are always quick to answer any questions or concerns so that is never the case with our customers’ experience.”

The vast majority of business they get at Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair comes from word of mouth and referrals from their current clients. They also offer one-time discounts for every referral their clients send, and they have seen a lot of success through that.

We asked Clay what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“Don’t over-commit to people. If you can’t take on a job, don’t. It’s important to make sure you are delivering the best level of service possible. If, for some reason, you can’t give a client your best, it’s important to let them know that it won’t be a good fit. When you take excellent care of your clients, ask for positive feedback. They are willing to give it!”


Congratulations to the team at Westmoreland Pool Service and Repair Inc for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Clay, for taking the time to speak with us!
