    very reliable and knowledgable and is always available to answer any concerns

    Thank you very much for your review. We noticed that the water was leaking somewhere in the pool you did have a leak detection company come out and repair a leak then because you were paying attention to your pool level you felt like your water was still leaking out of the pool. Believe it or not even in the winter we have evaporation occurring . You can lose up to 4 inches of water in seven days due to normal evaporation. This was actually the case you did not have any further leaks everything is working well in your pool now. Leaks are very important to repair because chemical in balance can cause many many problems. Joy the pool summer is coming

    Great Service!
    I have now been using the Palm Beach Pool Doctor for over 6 months. Adam and his team have been a great. They have never missed a day of service and Adam is always available to discuss questions or concerns. Adam has an unbelievable knowledge of pools and what it truly takes to keep it looking perfect. He provides a detailed list of treatments on each visit and is very reasonably priced. I went through three different pool service companies before finding the Pool Doctor. I rarely post a review, but I know how challenging it can be to find someone that is reliable and really knows what they are doing. Look no further…..the Pool Doctor is the only choice! Check him out for yourself palmbeachpooldoctorinc.com

    He was polite and informative. I, however, ended up using a family friend whose schedule was more aligned to mine at the time.
    Adam A. Jan 14, 2017

    Thank you very much for the review. I know you wanted me to come out there at your schedule and unfortunately I have a lot of things that I had to do and I could not commit to a next day service out in Loxahatchee which is very far west. I hope everything went well and you were able to treat for the phosphorus in your pool remember these products can be purchased at any pool store you just need to know what to ask for this was the advice I gave you on the phone and I hope you took the advice because otherwise you will be brushing the pool a lot and they will be selling you a lot of unnecessary shock chemicals. He's chemicals will damage your equipment make the pool water on swimmable and toxic to humans. If you need me in the future you have my phone number thank you very much for the review

    Very Knowledgeable
    I thought it was black algae at the bottom of the pool...but Adam detected the problem as soon as he arrived... it was metal stain from the heater that was attached to the pump...he detached the heater, treated the pool with chemicals and brushed the pool...the stain is about 80% gone. Good job!!
    Adam A. Dec 15, 2016

    Thank you very much for the review in this case too much acid and too much chlorine corroded the inside of the heater and all the copper started coming out into the pool and staining. Because the heater was dysfunctional I remove the heater from the plumbing so when we put those chemicals in the chemicals would not circulate through the heater and cause more metals to come out. stains are hard to get rid of if you got 80 or 90% of it out with continuous brushing you did a good job. Unfortunately the chemicals are hit and miss and they are very expensive.

    Adam A. Oct 9, 2016

    Hurricane Matthew. This person wanted us to service their pool and vacuum the pool we came by unlike any other service and we put a lot of chemicals in the pool to make it through the loss of power during hurricane. We do this for 300 customers. Unfortunately this person only thinks of himself. He calls me on the Sunday two days after a category for hurricane rolls into town and wants me to come and vacuum his pool and and demands his money back. I told him to find another service because it's ridiculous to expect any service company to do full-service during a hurricane. I think anyone would agree

    Thank you very much for your review you bought a new home and right away we found that there was some kind of a leak because your salt system was acting funny and we were losing salt rapidly. Buying a new home sometimes means you inherit the problems of the old homeowners. We're getting that leak fixed and everything should return to normal with the pool.

    Adam A. Jul 9, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. I know I have said this a lot in all of my responses but the same holds true for your pool you were experiencing high phosphorus levels and you were fighting yourself personally trying to kill the algae in your pool but it was growing faster than your chlorine and shock could kill it. This is due to high phosphorus levels. Phosphorus is fertilizer for algae. Algae is a plant it's not really thinking when it's trying to grow if you give it an opportunity by providing it with a lot of fertilizer it grows extremely rapidly despite your chemicals. Now that we have done the phosphate treatment initially the pool is crisp and clear. Depending on the amount of phosphorus added in the future due to suntan lotion body sweat landscape debris run off from groups or decks and also the addition of tapwater we will have to do another phosphate treatment down the road.

    Palm Beach Pool Doctor (Adam Armstrong) has done a great job caring for our pool. Adam is conscientious and very thorough. He truly cares about doing a good job and promptly communicates any concerns he sees. For example, he recently suspected a leak. Sure enough, we had one. The pool balance was a mess and he knew just what to do to make it clear enough to repair. We would recommend Palm Beach Pool Doctor to anyone needing pool care.
    Adam A. Jul 9, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. You live in an area where you use well water to fill your pool when it gets low this water is loaded with phosphorus from fertilizer run off of the industry in Central Florida. It's not a big deal if you understand the issues you can deal with it with a non-toxic inexpensive treatment that is effective and does not destroy your equipment.

    Adam A. Jun 18, 2016

    Instead of acid washing your pool which would be expensive around $400 plus refilling the pool with water. We treated the pool and did a chemical shock for $85. The drawback to this process was that it took repeated visits to brush and clear the pool. When you neglect a pool for many months you create a situation that can damage the plaster inside the pool. We are now servicing the pool each week please continue my service it is affordable and reliable. Thanks for the rating.

    Adam A. Apr 30, 2016

    Thank you very much for the review. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to show you that I do know what I'm talking about on the number of issues with pools in South Florida. Phosphorus tends to be our main problem with keeping Pools from turning green. A lot of companies will go out there and shock their pools continuously. This causes a lot of damage to tiles plaster bathers and your pool equipment. It also doesn't solve the problem because the algae blooms come right back. In your case repeated use of heavy amounts of acid damaged your glass tiles. One quick phosphorus removal treatment that is non-toxic and your pool goes back to normal chemical use and enjoyment of the water quality by you and your family.

    Adam A. Feb 4, 2016

    The name of my company is Palm Beach pool doctor. For about three years I took on repairs and service in Broward County. As the years went by it became very difficult for me to not only service on a weekly basis in Broward County but deal with the emergency response needed to keep customers happy. Over the past two years I slowly removed the southernmost Broward County areas from my schedule. First I started with Davey, plantation and Tamarack. I felt that I could not do justice to my customers so I recommended over a one-month period for them to find someone new or I gave them a recommendation this was a very nice letter that I typed up and sent out. I didn't just drop anybody and I did not sell the accounts which is what usually happens in the pool industry. This year I had to let another handful of pools go I also sent out a very nice letter giving people an opportunity to find a company before I left. I was very honest and sincere when I sent the letter. My business is in Palm Beach so it's very hard for me to do the more than 90% of the work that I do in Palm Beach and give the same attention to the less than 10% of the business that I had in Broward. Right now I am only servicing Parkland, coral springs, Deerfield beach, and lighthouse point. I offer my services to people I try my best to accommodate everyone I have three people working for me currently but I have no one in Broward to cover these areas that were not close to Palm Beach County. I wish I could help everybody but it's just not possible. Thank you very much for your review.

    Adam A. Feb 7, 2016

    Thanks for the review. When you buy a home with a pool you need to set aside time every week to adjust the chemicals and clean the pool. If you do not make the time to do this your pool can become overwhelming. Hiring an honest company is important because you may not have the time to check up on them. If you did have the time you might manage the pool yourself.

    Adam A. Jan 28, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. Phosphorus is an issue that every pool company deals with. In your case it came from a large amount of landscaping debris that was in the pool each week. Some companies choose to shock the pool which means you're putting a lot of chemicals in the pool that can destroy the algae and bacteria. Unfortunately the food source of algae is not removed when you shock the pool. This food source tends to accumulate over time. Tapwater, landscape debris, heavy use of the pool, water running off The roof or pool deck can elevate the phosphate levels very quickly. Once they get high shocking doesn't work anymore. All you're doing is deteriorating the plaster and destroying your equipment with high chemical levels. The algae bloom comes right back once the chemicals subsided. I hope everything is well in this new year enjoy the pool in the summer.

    Adam A. Jan 28, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. I know with all the rain and the wind we are having from cold fronts and crazy tornadoes that are coming from nowhere here in South Florida your pool is probably a mess. It's difficult for us to keep everything perfectly clean in your pool. We make sure during these very rainy times with tornadoes and lightning and torrential rain that we get to every home, balance the chemicals make sure the circulation is good by checking in emptying the skimmer, pump and vacuum baskets. That way when the rain and weather breaks we can get out there and vacuum the pool and the pool will not turn green in the meantime. I asked all of my customers to please have patience with my guys and I are out there working in these conditions trying to do what we can just to get by and get to the better weather. All my customers are very important. But sometimes we have to make the decision not to vacuum pools because were holding a 12 foot metal pole in our hands. We don't want to die then we can never vacuum your pool again. Florida experiences the most lightning strikes that cause injury and death and all of the United States.

    Thank you very much for your review I know your pool is difficult because of the tremendous amount of garbage that is in it every week but we try our best and we always show up one time per week which keeps it manageable. When I first started to service your pool I know that we had to deal with a lot of issues other then tremendous amount of garbage in the pool such as leaks and equipment failure. Not to mention large amounts of phosphorus in the water chemistry. Over the years we have ironed out all those issues and I am glad because now it is a much easier pool to service.

    Thank you very much for your review. You have given me a couple of nightmare pools. I was able to turn them around by draining and acid washing them.

I try my best to cater to each and every individual customer. It would be wonderful if all my customers had blank checks for me. But this is all part of the challenge of running a business.

    If you want a company that is professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and fairly priced, then Adam Armstrong and Palm Beach Pool Doctor should be your pool service. 4th pool service in 4 years. One pool was frequently green, another charged by the week and many extras, and last one pool looked good, but chemicals so far off new finish being damaged. They NEVER tested water. Adam knew exactly what was wrong, and knew exactly how to fix it. My pool has never looked better or felt better to swim in. He's the only one who eliminated algae on deep end stairs. You won't go wrong hiring Adam Armstrong and Palm Beach Pool Dictor.
    Adam A. Jan 17, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. Phosphates are an issue that every pool owner has to deal with. If your pool company is not familiar with this concept then they will be shocking your pool constantly. Shocking a pool causes damage to the plaster interior and to the equipment. You should also never swim in a pool that has too many chemicals because your hair will turn green your skin will itch and your eyes will burn. Shocking a pool is only a temporary solution. When you remove the food source for algae growth not only does it treat your pool equipment and you better. It also is less expensive in the long run because it treats the source of the algae growth. One treatment usually lasts a very very long time.

    Adam A. Jan 10, 2016

    Thank you very much for your review. When people are picky about the garbage in their pool they need to remember that any pool service that is in business usually spends 10 to 20 minutes at each pool one time per week. When we leave the pool is in great condition but when it rains or there is wind garbage will go right back into the pool. Sometimes adding a pool vacuum cleaner will cost the homeowner a little money but the peace of mind is that the garbage will be controlled from day today or at Least minimalized.

    Tried several pool services with bad experiences and did my own servicing for years. Retired and called the BBB for recommendation and have been extremely pleased with the service The Pool Doctor has provided. Without my initial knowledge he diagnosed and repaired a leak by my skimmer outlet and I was never charged for that event.. Always on time and never misses a week. Pool always looks great.
    Adam A. Jan 3, 2016

    Thank you very much for the review. Every pool becomes a maintenance issue at some point in time. Leaks happen over time because the materials settle over the years. Sometimes concrete pulls away from the plaster or the plastic fittings. Paying attention to all the chemicals every week including calcium. This is how I was able to diagnose the leak. Most companies only test for acid and chlorine. They miss very subtle problems like a slow leak.

    Thank you very much for your review. Happy holidays. Phosphates are a tricky problem that may sneak up on you it's just a matter of doing treatments every so often depending on the source of the phosphate issue. Heavy bather loads, lots of landscape garbage, water running off the deck or roof or palm trees into the pool. All these things can elevate phosphate levels and allow algae to grow despite high chlorine levels in Pools. The pool looks great now crisp and clear. I am just a phone call away if you have anymore problems.

    Adam is doing a great job cleaning our pool. His maintenance and repair charges are routine and even simple repairs add up over time. Adam installed the "best" pump when he said the old one failed. A pool equipment installer told me that a variable speed pump is best and can save $40 a month in electricity charges. I may need to replace the pump again.

    I had no water flow to my pump and could not get a prime. I also wanted to get my pool light replaced. Adam came and thoroughly explained the problem with my pump, which was very helpful since I have no experience with pool maintenance. He also determined my pool light did not need replacement, as the issue was with the breaker. He easily could have replaced the light and charged me, so I definitely appreciated his honesty and knowledge.

    Adam has been servicing my pool for over a year now. He has always been timely and if there are any issues he always keeps an open line of communication. When extra projects come up Adam always keeps my budget in mind which has been a godsend. Adam and his guys are super friendly, neat and clean.

    My pool pump died on Saturday and my pool was a major mess. Fortunately, I contacted Adam. He answered the call immediately, gave me an estimate over the phone and scheduled me for Monday morning. He came to our house on schedule and within a little more than an hour, replaced my pump motor and leaky pipes. I recommend him to anyone having any kind of pool problems. Thank you Adam!

    Adam came to our rescue when another pool company left us with a mess. We've used the Pool Doctor for nearly 6 months and our pool looks great. Tom Z.

    Adam and his team have done a great job of maintaining my in-ground saline pool over the last 6 months. They're reliable, knowledgeable, and take their time to make sure the job gets done correctly, week in and week out.

    The Palm Beach Pool Doctor is a great company. They have been cleaning my pool for about 2 -3 months and I am very satisfied. They are professional, on time and eager to please. Adam is the greatest. I recommend this company; they definitely have my vote.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am CPO certified which is a national certification. I am with the Better Business Bureau for a number of years now. I am fully insured and licensed.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am now taking on the project of starting a pool store. In 2016 during the summer I had a large number of customers hire me off of social media and asked me if I had a pool store because they wanted to continue to clean their own pools but they wanted the advice and repairs sincerity and honesty that I gave to them during their hiring me temporarily for repairs and chemical treatments. This is going to be a difficult task because there are a number of large nationwide franchises and businesses that have misled the public for many many years. I will add to my arsenal A device that is used by the Board of Health to test public pools it shoots an application to your phone that allows you to track and monitor your weekly chemical levels that will be taken and put onto your smart phone at my pool store. I am very proud of this and I will continue to service people to the best of my abilities.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask questions. There are no mysteries. Look for someone who has licencing, insurance and a CPO. In this business this licence means they have the education it takes to work on commercial pools and understand the laws handed down by the local board of health.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
My job is not rocket science but it takes chemistry knowledge and a good routine to keep a pool looking good and functioning well. Sticking to a schedule makes the customers happy and makes it easy to spot issues before they become problems
