Butch Eaton Ripped off allot of people here is St Augustine. He smiled and took money from people knowing he was going to shut down two days later. He is a snake and a crook. In any other country on this rock, we call earth they would put him in jail.

If you are one of them please contact me. bruceaphoto@mac.com

Same as the rest of you, we also have been stolen by Butch Eaton around 25 k and in addition started receiving some notice to owners from subcontractors. I believe that the group affected by Pelican Pools should meet to start a joint

Butch Eaton of pelican pools has ripped off many of us in this community. If you are one of us then lets meet and compare notes. This guy deserves jail time!
We have several liens on our property from sub contractors that where not paid.

We hired this thief in January feeling good about our decision. Too bad we never checked the "real" reviews. He was charming on the sale but there were harbingers. He talked about his gambling habits and his hard luck medical crap. He told

Choose your pool company carefully, unfortunately I did not. I did look at three local companies here in St. Augustine and went with Pelican Pools. Butch did a nice job selling us a pool, but just like the other reviews have said,

Looks like Pelican Pools has been posting fake reviews to pump up the rating. Lets take a closer look at the data:

*In the previous TWO years from 11/21/08 to 11/23/10 they had a TOTAL of 3 reviews (two of those are 1 star)

Butch was great at the begining. We signed with Pelican because we felt comfortable with Butch. Well things started out just fine. We are over 70 days into construction on a estimate of 50 days to complete. We did make a change that added some time. As Butch would say it added over 20 days. But that is not actual work time that is "Butch time". Actually it should of added probably 10-15. But if you go with "Butch Time" we are at 70 days and pool should be just about done. Well we are not close. They have most of the money and now they have nothing but excuses as to why they are not working on our pool. The weather has been beautiful and no work for over 3 weeks. Butch is a liar! I caught him in several lies now. He has not paid one of the contractors that did work here over a month ago. Please do not use this pool company. I would challenge anyone who commented here that said they had a great experience with them. I believe the same thing the other comment said that it was probably Butch and Co. doing them. Email me at bustaboy1@hotmail. com if you would like more details. just put in the subj. line POOL INFO. Also i would have given zero stars except you have to give at least one.

What a wonderful experience it was having our pool built by Pelican Pools. We did our homework and got several bids but we finally decided to go with Pelican Pools because we felt Butch was very knowledgeable about all aspects of building a pool. He answered all our questions and concerns and helped us design and build the pool we've always dreamed of. We were especially impressed by the 3-D pictures that showed what the pool would look in our backyard. It gave us a clearer perspective of what the overall finished product would look like and we loved it. My family and I enjoy our backyard paradise so much that we take a lot of "stay-cations" in our own backyard retreat. We are just thrilled with our pool and are very satisfied and pleased with how Butch made the whole process a wonderful experience from start to finish.

I had never been so disappointed. The owner was so great at the beginning, then he changed into another person once we handed over the first check. It was the most unprofessional company that I ever had the experience to work with. The people working for him were nice, but 90% are contractors that are not affiliated with Pelican and they "really" talk trash about the owner and how bad of a businessman he is. I only wish I had done more research before signing with Pelican. The experience was awful for our whole family. The only promises they make, are broken promises. My advice........ Use ANYONE else. Dig it yourself! Buyer beware with this company.

They showed up every day until they received their first big check. Then disappeared. Our pool has taken 5 months, leaked, and is still not through the final inspection. It's not the length of time, the fact that they didn't get a leak team out for 1 month, or the price. It was the complete lack of communication and the owner's favorite line "not my problem". As soon as you sign that contract - his attitude will turn. They cut our sprinkler line, which leaked through our concrete - not their problem, then the pool leaked and his first call to us was to accuse us (???). We've been forced to contact our lawyer - please save yourself from this contractor! We stumbled upon another homeowner in the same situation, they've contacted their lawyer as well.

I wish I had taken the time to do more reseach before signing with Pelican Pools. They were great and very aggressive on the sales pitch, full of empty promises, once we signed and they got their Fat checks they left us with a Gapping hole in our back yard for "Months". We were actually the joke of the neighborhood. Never sign with Pelican and warn your friends to beware. If you do, at least put something in Writing with a set completion date that holds them accountable if they are late. (and they will be)
