06/09/15: 'EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE'
Gary did my pool several years ago and I am still very happy with the design and with him. I had some repair needed to my tiles on the pool and he came out and had them fixed without any charge and in a timely manner. I recommend Gary to anyone looking to build a new pool or landscape.

I do not normally write online reviews. However, after dealing with Gary Sewell, of Garocco Pools I wanted to (i) save others from the mistake we made in hiring him and (ii) ensure that Gary Sewell is known as the crook and liar that he is.

We hired Gary to build us a pool in Altadena after reading great online reviews (last year) and seeing his portfolio of pools. He agreed to build our pool and asked for money up-front to do the job. He then dug a giant hole in the back yard, and asked us for more money. We agreed, because we thought he would continue to work and had no reason to doubt that based on his reviews and portfolio. However, things started to look somewhat sketchy at this point as he began to ask us to make the checks out to him personally rather than Garocco Pools, Inc.

After paying Gary a second time, he left the job, didn't return our phone calls and didn't stop by the house for 3 months. When he finally did come back he had a number of excuses (which we later found out were all lies) and we gave him a probationary period in which he said he would perform all the work without pay because he felt morally obligated after taking tens of thousands of dollars from us. He said he wanted to make it up to us.

During his second chance he lied to us again repeatedly and later we found out that he was taking money from the workers (whom we were paying directly.

He never obtained a permit for the pool even though he told us 6 months ago that he had. We have had to deal with the Zoning Department on a number of occasions because of this.

He lied repeatedly to us, got aggressive with us a number of times and now we are stuck cleaning up the mess he made.

DO NOT HIRE. Read all of the reviews online for Garocco Pools and notice how many people are disgusted with Gary Sewell.
