If I could have chosen negative stars, I would have. I couldn??t be more disgusted with Garocco Pools. And to the ??reviewer? than quoted him as a ??third generation pool builder, etc.??clearly a fraud. Who writes reviews like that? Please. Perhaps, Gary Sewell should stop having his friends write his reviews. He asks for money up front before the job is done and has reverted to asking that checks be made out to him personally. Anytime a contractor starts asking for checks made to cash, there??s a problem. To anyone looking to put in a pool, you??d be better off just getting sprinklers.

Before working with Gar, I had an outdated backyard. Six weeks later, we had water in our new pool. The kids swim every day ofter school and we're all looking forward to being able to spend more time in our beautiful backyard this summer.

I am so happy with the job that Garocco Pools did for my home. They designed the whole project to fit my architecture of the home and really listened to my wife and I about what we needed for our backyard. The pool was on budget, and on time, and I would recommend them to anyone.

Buyer beware! This company will take your money and run. They ask for payment in full before completing the job and then walk away. I do not recommend this company. They stole $10.000 from me don't let it happen to you..

Garocco pools has transformed my out-dated yard to a modern paradise. Even though it took a little longer than expected, the unique beauty of the workmanship is nothing less than stunning and was well worth the wait. Gar and his team are truly amazing!!!

Though their methods seem, at times, to be a bit unorthodox, the finished product will take your breath away. Garocco completely transformed my home and my lifestyle with their creative space planning. My house is the talk of the neighborhood and my book club now meets here! My children's friends can't all want to come over on the after school and we all use the pool or spa on an almost daily basis. My project was completed right on schedule and I was kept in the loop every step of the way. Thanks Garocco!

Garocco Inc. is, by far, the pinnacle of southern California pool-building. The owner, Gar is a third-generation pool-builder and a true artist with over 20 years of personal experience. Gar has done three major projects for me over the past 15 years during which time we developed a close professional relationship. I can't recommend this company highly enough.

Stay away from this pool contractor. He built our pool in 2005 and was very enthusiastic about the design. He quickly returned a design that we liked and he was eager to get started right away. After starting the project, we had to manage his subcontractors as he only showed up after each stage to pick up checks. Even at the inspector's request, he refused to show up for inspections. Now, 5 years later we have a leak (our 2nd one) and his contract in hand that expressly covers leaks. We have contacted him on 1/27, 1/28, 1/31, 2/13, 2/18, 3/1, 3/2, and today, 3/4. He returned one phone call early in the process of contacting him to say he would handle it but we have never heard from him again. So disappointing to have to deal with unethical contractors that have no regard for the time or money of other people. Do yourself a favor and RUN AWAY from this guy.

Update: We sued this joker in small claims court and won. I even got compensated for the time I had to spend getting him to court. The judge read this review (above) in court because Gar counter-sued me for slander because I wrote it - he had his buddy serve our non-english speaking housekeeper with the papers. Doh! Then the judge explained that it had to be untrue to be slander. We sent the judgement to the State Contractors board who suspended his license until he paid the judgement, which he did, promptly. Thank you Gar. Sounds like we aren't the only ones who became victims of Gar Sewell. I'd urge everyone to settle their disputes with him in small claims court, don't rely on the fidiots at the State Contractors Board - they were as useless as Gar.

Now he can rally his kids to write more fake reviews, which always appear on the same day as the true ones.

Last night we had our first dinner party beside our new pool. Our friends could not believe how amazingly gorgeous the project is. Gar is a true artist. We started with a plan that looked good on paper, but all along the way Gar rethought the design to take advantage of the changes in elevation in the yard. It's breathtaking.

My pool is great. Gar built a unique one-of-a-kind rock waterfall oasis in a side of a hill that other builders said could not be done! The time to build was long because of the special design, but it was worth it! I would recommend Garocco Pools to everyone looking for a special design for their own pool. DM

I couldn't be happier. Progress updated weekly on my personal information page with schedule info. Emails promptly answered. A+++ Company. Gar is a genius... a true artist. Personalized service. There were a couple of hang-ups along the way, things that took longer than expected...but certainly a much more pleasant experience than dealing with some other contractors I've dealt with...and with Gar's expertise and guidance...the finished product.... just beautiful!
