 “Identifying the right contractor for any construction project is critical to a successful outcome. Craig Kircher and his crew at Tri Valley Pool and Spa were able to make the process of remodeling our pool and water features enjoyable and stress free. The result has exceeded our expectations in every area. Craig is knowledgeable, organized and was always available to address any of our questions or concerns. We would, without hesitation, highly recommend Craig to anyone considering building or remodeling a pool.”

 “I feel so lucky that Tri Valley was the contractor on our job. It was frightening to me to even think about all the things that had to be decided. Craig helped me through the mine field of choices and produced a beautiful pool and spa for my garden--even better than I could have imagined. He was always clear with billing, changes and costs. He kept his word. When he said he would be here, or would finish something, he was here and he finished. Craig did all the extra things that came along. He never complained or made excuses. He responded quickly to every question I had -- before, during and since the pool was completed. He has had integrity since the first day and I can't imagine anyone else managing this job as well, as quickly and as efficiently as he did.”

 “Craig was instrumental in the success of our pool project. He and his team’s technical knowledge and ability to work through difficult site conditions to complete our project on time were impressive. Craig is always available to answer our questions and is quick to address any of our concerns. Our project was built with quality and craftsmanship as a priority, every step of the way!”

Scott and Ella Brittingham

“I was very impressed with the commitment that Craig and his crew showed in accomplishing the vision for my pool. His expert team worked long hours when needed, including well into one cold, wet evening. Craig is experienced, knowledgeable, calm and extremely easy to work with. I knew his goal was perfection, and he certainly met it.”

D. Nielsen

“I chose Craig over several other bidders because I was impressed with his design creativity, vision for the space, technical competence and he possessed the business integrity I was looking for. The finished result is beautiful and impresses everyone who visits. Five years later I remain convinced I made the right choice.”

“Marymount of Santa Barbara contracted with Tri-Valley Pool and Spa to rebuild the outdated pool for our school in June 2009. This project carried additional challenges due to our proximity to the Mission of Santa Barbara historical site. Special conditions were imposed and the project evolved into a very custom pool build, overseen by Santa Barbara Environmental Health and the City of Santa Barbara Public Works, Historical Landmarks Commission.

Craig Kircher with Tri-Valley was with us every step of the way. He was instrumental in solving problems with design, engineering and landmark elements. The actual pool construction went very well. The work site was always kept clean, operational time constraints were observed, the project was finished before the due date and stayed within budget. Last minute changes were readily accommodated and the Marymount staff was always in the loop as to progress, obstacles, and solutions. The pool is indeed a beautiful restoration which Marymount students have enjoyed for the past four months.

I highly recommend Tri-Valley Pool and Spa for the quality of their work, their ability to cooperate, meet stated schedules and keep a project within budget”.

“We ultimately picked Craig and Tri Valley to remodel our swimming pool based on a combination of pricing, referrals and the testimonials we read on the web site. Now that the project is complete, I’m happy to say that Craig and his crew exceeded our expectations in every way. From his unparalleled customer service and follow up, to the extraordinary quality of their work. It’s refreshing to see a contractor who is as excited, passionate and knowledgeable about their work as Craig is about his. The lengths that Craig went to, to design the project specifically for us, and to help us pick the materials we wanted was remarkable.”

“It was a pleasure working with Craig. His crew always showed up at the job site on time, completed their work on schedule, and the quality of work is excellent. Craig is very knowledgeable and helpful in planning, designing and explaining the systems required to do the job right. However, I was most impressed with how Craig dealt with problems or mistakes relating to his work. When I notice that the glass tiles were not straight on a wall, I called Craig to explain the problem. Craig was at the job site the next morning and immediately had all the tiles on the wall removed and replaced at no cost with no questions asked. As an architect I often deal with contractors who want to argue about the quality of their work. Tri Valley Pool & Spa realize that their reputation depends on quality work and they pride themselves on doing an outstanding job”
