Has anybody had any good or bad experiences with Dover Pools in Central NJ?
We are not too pleased with Dover Pools. We purchased an above ground pool (15 x 24) from them last summer and had a variety of problems with installation, parts, etc. A few weeks ago, we needed a part for our filter and it had to be ordered from the company. After waiting 10 days, we were told it could take months to come in. I ordered the part from another pool store's web site and had the part delivered via UPS in one week.
Had an aweful experience with Dover Pools - would NOT recommend them to anyone! They are certainly not the company to hire! Wish I had done my homework before attempting to do business with this organization!
My experience with Dover Pools in Lakewood has been a nightmare and I would not recommend them to anyone. I bought a hot tub from them that started leaking after 5 weeks, you can not get anyone live in the service department, and then they set up service appointments and don't show up. There is no service after the sale with them. I would stay far away.
I am a big fan of Fiberglass pools. I have had vinyl liner pools and concrete pools. Fiberglass pools are easy to clean, they manitain chemical balance better, and the surface does not need to be refinished as often as concrete pools. The only downside is that the surface of fiberglass pools can be a bit more slippery than concrete but that has not caused any problems for us.
The pools around the Taj Mahal are basically reflection pools. If you see a picture of the Taj Mahal you can see the reflection of the building in the pools. Like most reflection pools the water is shallow and the water is not effected by fountain jets so that the reflection is kept still from any waves.
