***UPDATE: We did get our deposit back on 5/11/2012 and we were able to go with a reputable and honest pool company.) We gave Pete Ortiz a deposit of $3,000 to secure building a pool for us. After discussing our pool plans, his pool was going to be out of our budget. He advised at the time of the deposit that it was totally refundable. He WILL NOT return our emails or phone calls and their office number voice mail box is full. I would highly recommend you be careful when dealing with Ortiz Pools.
