    Palm Beach Pool Doctor was great to work with and I would recommend them to others. I worked with Adam who recommended and installed a new pool pump. He was able to conduct the project while I was at work, making it very easy and convenient. The prices were reasonable with high quality work completed.

    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

    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!!

    Honest, available , knowledgeable and pricing is very far!Several other places were very quick to over charge for my small pool. Either this or they were just unreliable. In the last 2 months I have had some issues and he's been right there with nothing but honest advice, and great prices. Would recommend him in a heart beat!

    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.

    We are an investment company who renovates properties through the Coral Springs/Deerfield beach areas. We have been using Adam Armstrong to repair and service our pools for over a year. We find hi to be highly skilled and professional. He does a great job. He is very responsive to our need and very reliable. His costs are also very reasonable. We would highly recommend him to service and meet your pool needs.

    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.

    Our previous pool company was taking advantage of us with unfair pricing and poor service. I called Adam for a quote and he came out immediately and offered a very competitive service price. He is very detail oriented and takes great care to keep our pool running well. He has also given us detailed reports on the status of all our equipment and doesn't nickel and dime us when repairs are necessary. I 100% recommend Adam for any type of pool service needed.

    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 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!

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
