We had been considering purchasing a pool for a few years. After much research, we decided on fibreglass and reached out to a few companies for quotes. We were really impressed with Vince’s willingness to take the time to walk through the process with us, and provide advice on locations and options. He even made arrangements for us to visit both the manufacturer’s yard to view various pools as well as site visit to previous customers to view the pool after installation. A pool is a significant investment, and Vince made us feel much more comfortable with our decision. From start to finish, the process took about two weeks and Vince, Joe and the rest of the Simply Pools team were friendly and diligent, and stayed on schedule and in budget. They were even able to coordinate the landscaping work with Prestige Stoneworks for the installation of a patio. Overall, we were extremely impressed with their professionalism and the end product, and would highly recommend them to others if considering the installation of a fibreglass pool. Sincerely
Rod and Linda, Etobicoke, Ontario
We’d been wanting to put a pool in the backyard for a long time and we talked with a number of pool companies. Vince was the most prepared, the most professional, and sold us on the benefits of a fiberglass pool. When we finally sat down to work out the details, he guided us on the make and model of the pool, and actually convinced us to go with a slightly smaller pool than we were thinking – that’s an uncommon gesture and really sold us on Simply Pools. We got the installation done early in the year and it couldn’t have gone smoother. Everything was on time, the crew was very friendly, and Joe and Vince answered any questions we had throughout. Even the mess was kept to a minimum! Vince also put us in touch with a landscaper to help finish the yard, and that also worked out great. Vince actually stopped by later in the summer to see how the finished yard looked, which was a really nice touch. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to go with Simply Pools and the job that Vince, Joe, and team did. We had a great summer in the pool and absolutely love it! We’ve already recommended Simply Pools to neighbors and will continue to do so.

Early this summer I decided to go ahead with my dream of owning a pool. After researching salt water fiberglass pools, I called in 3 companies for quotes. Throughout our discussions, I learned about pricing, installation, pool manufacturers and filter and heating equipment. Simply pools was the 3rd company I spoke with and within 5 minutes of meeting Vince my decision was made. The entire installation process was flawless, they did exactly what they said they would do. My pool was completed on time and within budget. No extra hidden fees. I highly recommend Simply Pools for their quality workmanship, knowledge and proficiency during every step of the construction.

We enjoyed working with you and helping us put our landscaping project together. There were a lot of unknowns which made us very nervous and were concerned for any unexpected costs. I’m sure you won’t forget our “dig”, which was unique! Overall, you helped answer all our questions and reassured us. We thank you for taking the time to be patient and understanding. We look forward to enjoying the pool for many years.

We love our SIMPLY POOLS pool! SIMPLY POOLS recommended the perfect colour, size and placement to complement our home and urban backyard. The digging and pool install were completed quickly and job was 100% true to quote. Heater and equipment are of high quality and met all expectations. They also built a fence for us that was impeccably and quickly done. The team has a great attitude and work ethic. If you want a beautiful pool at 1/2 the price of a concrete pool I highly recommend SIMPLY POOLS!

Vince, Joe and staff. We are so happy we chose Simply Pools to help us with our backyard getaway. Right from the start, everyone who was part of the team were warm, approachable and very conscientious. We are extremely happy with the end product and can’t wait for next spring! Great job Vince, Joe and everyone else involved.
2011-09-26 22:49:52″The summer of 2010 began with a languid heat radiating under a burning sun. My husband was unable to take any vacation time and I was left wondering if I could cope alone at home on my holidays when it was too hot to be outside. So, I drew the shades, cranked the air conditioning and hunkered down with my laptop to research inground POOLS. Yes, I wanted a POOL and I wanted it in two weeks. But, I didn’t want just any POOL it had to be inground, fibreglass and saltwater. We met with Vince and Joe of Simply Pools in early August and yes, two weeks later, I was swimming in my beautiful backyard POOL. I have never been involved with a project of this scale and my friends all had terrible experiences that they were dying to share. SIMPLY NO PROBLEMS– we had a great time. Everything is beautiful and I am so pleased to recommend Simply Pools!!” Lynn R. Campbellevile Ontario
2011-09-24 10:14:47when we decided to take the plunge and get a pool, we believed it was going to be a huge under taking! But when we met Joe and Vince, it made the process as simply as their business name! simlpy easy and fun! Great guys who are very patient and efficient. They were on time and on sight for every step of the way! we thank you for all your help! Cathy and Mike
2011-07-20 14:23:22The guys did a great job and finished it on time. It took them two days to install and complete the job. I’m the envy of my neighborhood!!!!! Thanks guys!!!!
2011-06-07 19:14:06Very very pleased with Simply Pools & Spas. Went to the Home Show in Toronto and the next thing I knew Simply Pools (Vince & Joe) were at the door. There was no hard pressure sales tact. They were a delight to work with. With the exception of the weather everything went very smoothly. Vince and or Joe were always keeping in touch either by email or phone. When work was scheduled for the day Vince and or Joe were always there. I would recomend Simply Pools & Spas to anyone who asked. Thank you Vince & Joe of Simply Pools & Spas
2011-04-08 14:02:41These guys built a great pool on time and on budget!
“Simply pools was great! They were very easy to deal with, knowledgeable and helpful. They followed through with any calls or uncertainties to help us feel at ease. The installation went very smoothly and was impressive to watch. We are very pleased with our fiberglass pool and along with our guests, love to use it from spring to late fall. It is a great thing for a family to have and to enjoy. I would recommend Vince and Joe of Simply Pools anytime and wish them continued success.”

“My wife and I wanted to have a pool installed and after swimming in a friends fiberglass pool we knew that fiberglass was a superior product vs. traditional liner pools. After researching pool manufacturers and local distributors we decided to go with Leisure Pools and the local distributor (Simply Pools). Are we ever glad we did! From the beginning we knew we were in good hands. Vince and Joe at Simply Pools did an extremely good job in walking us through the process. The pool was in and we were swimming with in three days, considering the heat wave last summer this was ideal. They showed up when they said they would, completed the job on time, on budget and were always a phone call away. I as a new pool owner had lots and lots of questions and Vince and Joe were always eager and willing to answer. I would highly recommend Simply Pools and their expertise if you are thinking about having a pool installed.”
Cameron, Guelph, Ontario
When my wife Dorothy and I made the decision to purchase an in ground pool, we searched the web and canvassed friends with pools, for suggestions, referrals and horror stories. After contacting a few pool installers we came upon Simply Pools. The one thing that struck me about Joe and Vince was the simple fact that they returned my original call within 2 hours. I would email Vince with questions and I would get a response the same day. Now, you may find that strange, but when contacting other companies, it often took days if not weeks to get a response, quote, or an answer to very simple questions. I could only assume that these individuals did not want my business. My wife and I met with Joe and Vince, and within a short period of time we realised that we found the team we wanted to deal with. Within a few days Joe had put together a site plan for location of pool and equipment. Shortly after that, the construction began. Because of bad weather we had a few delays in completion, but, within 7 days the pool was completed, with little or no mess. We are now in the process of landscaping the area around the pool and look forward to many many years of “fun in the sun”. We were a little nervous about taking on a project of this size. Most of our previous ones consisted of painting some rooms or installing some tiles in the basement. Joe and Vince promised us a painless delivery of their product and they came through. We SIMPLY cant say enough good things. Cheers.
Pat A, Woodbridge
Vince and Joe,
We’d like to thank you for the great job providing and installing our pool. We had done a lot of research and determined that a fiberglass pool was the best pool solution, and you both reinforced our decision as the right one. Simply Pools offered the best option for us. From the first meeting on our deck to discuss the options available, to the final connections to get the pool running you both were responsive, professional and knowledgeable. Your low pressure, flexible approach made the purchase an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Due the tight confines of our yard and driveway access, we all expected the installation to be tight, but we imagine that it turned out to be the most challenging one possible. A matter of inches at every turn made it seem impossible at times. But we were comforted and impressed that you always remained positive and professional, doing what needed to be done to ensure success. Seeing the pool in the ground was such a rewarding sight at the end of the (2nd) day.
We don’t think we’d do anything differently and would highly recommend Simply Pools to anyone considering a pool. Our yard is open for referrals if you’d like.

Letter of Recommendation
Vince and Joe,
Though this letter is coming to you later than I had hoped, it is no less sincere in its intent and content in conveying our utmost delight and appreciation for all you and your team did in getting our beautiful pool installed. The timeliness of the project, adhering to the estimated budget, your constant availability and presence, the professionalism of the crews – from the initial review sessions through final completion, all was as promised; professional and with outstanding quality. We especially appreciate the extra time given to the decision of the pool type, spa and the applications and we have now come to realize the importance of the details with proper planning. The outcome is beautiful and ties in brilliantly with the house.
The pool adds a whole new dimension to our home and we receive very gracious comments from all our guests as to the look, finish and beauty of the pool and spa. We are very pleased that our home has a pool from Simply Pools.
Many thanks, Vince and Joe and all the best.
Terry and Hilarie
We were looking for a pool and deciding between concrete or fibreglass. We contacted several people for quotes. The only people who responded were Vince from Simply Pools. Vince came out, was knowledgeable and great to deal with so we decided immediately to go ahead.
The pool was installed very quickly and with no issues. Any questions or concerns we had were answered very promptly.
We would highly recommend Simply Pools.
Jason and Linda J. Newmarket.
We absolutely love our new fiberglass pool installed by Simply Pools. We are very glad that we decided to choose your company to install our beautiful pool. Right from the initial planning , you have been professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you for running such an honest and conscientious business and caring so much about every detail of the job. It was a pleasure dealing with you, and your sub-contractors and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Hi Vince – We would like to express our thanks to you, Joe, and your team for the great job installing our new Barrier Reef fibreglass swimming pool this summer. From concept to completion, the project was handled with professionalism and a commitment to ensuring customer satisfaction. Thanks also to great weather, we continue to enjoy use of the pool as summer turns to fall. I’d be happy to show the finished product to any prospective clients you may have in the future.
Tim and Julia Kennedy
Dear Simply Pools,
We would like to take the time to thank you and let you know what a pleasure it has been dealing with your company. With the purchase of a new home, our intentions were to include a pool to complete our dream home. We assessed the different pool types, spoke with local pool owners about their experiences, and talked to local builders and once we sat down and spoke to you, we knew Simply Pools was the best company to take on the project of creating our backyard oasis.
Our goal was to create a retreat in our backyard that would include a salt water pool, incorporated with a natural landscape, provide cost efficient operations, easy to maintain, safe & swimmer friendly, and overall provide for a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable way for our family and friends for years to come. From the beginning to the very end of the project, the design and equipment recommendations, information, and advice you and your team has provided resulted in the best outcome when it came down to meeting our needs.
The professionalism, expertise, knowledge and “customer comes first” attitude that both you and your crew have displayed from our first meeting, to the day excavation began, and every day since, has been nothing but exceptional. In a group of many builders and dealers, we feel that Simply Pools is truly the top rank organization that will deliver you outstanding results.
We believe excellent service deserves recognition and want to thank you for your awareness to every detail regarding our pool, the great service provided during the construction process and for the caring attitude your company has demonstrated long after the project has been completed.
Even though we were only able to enjoy our pool for a short time this year, we’ve received so many compliments from our family and friends and without hesitation would recommend Simply Pools for anyone considering a new pool!! Thanks for making our backyard oasis become a reality!!!
Rita Ron Eusebio
I want to thank the staff at Simply Pools & Spas for the tremendous and extremely successful work you did on our pool project. After many hours of research and phone calls to more than half a dozen pool companies , I can honestly say that Simply Pools was the first pool company that sat down and took the time to listen to us, as to what we were looking for and work within our budget It is a credit to the principals of Simply Pools that they have such high caliber employees. From the Owners to the workers, the lines of communication were clear from the start of the project and we always knew that Julio, Joe and Vince were only a phone call away. You kept the construction site clean and most importantly safe and helped bring our dreams to life. We look forward to a full summer of pool use for 2013 and many more years to come. We highly recommend your company to others in the market for a pool and once again, thank you for being such a great company to work with and the smiles you bring with you all.
The Marques Family , Mississauga
I was a little bit sad to have it closed today, but will have plenty of time to enjoy it next summer……Thank you so very much to You Vince, Joe, Julio and the rest of your crew members, it was like dealing with friends; also thanks for responding right away to every question of this inexperienced first time pool owners. Promise…..no more questions until next spring.
Teresa and Adam Mississauga.
We sourced out multiple pool companies when looking into putting in our pool. Simply Pools was amazingly prompt in all of their responses and extremely professional.
Working with them was a great experience. They started the project exactly when they said they would and completed it right on schedule and exactly on budget with no extra hidden costs. From start to finish their service level was the best I have ever experienced working with any company. The installation was done perfectly and we are thrilled with our pool. They were very friendly and helpful to deal with. If I ever had questions they would get back to me right away. We had complete trust in them and felt very comfortable through the whole process.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to install a pool. They are a complete pleasure to work with. Thank you.
Shannon & Grant Rutherford, Mississauga
Vince and Joe,
We installed our pool late last fall and now that we’re getting close to the summer months we find ourselves enjoying it with our 2 year old daughter on a daily basis.
Looking back, you guys made what was potentially a very daunting/scary project into a smooth one. I especially appreciated your “hands-on” approach to the project, from the actual pool installation, to the coordination of many of the other contractors and moving parts of the project. You guys were great at keeping us informed along the way and were always reachable and patient with our (numerous) questions.
We want to thank you for helping us turn our backyard into an outdoor oasis and I look forward to recommending Simply Pools to all my friends, family and colleagues.
Eric and Cathy – Oakville
Based upon the numerous glowing testimonials posted here, we decided to call Simply Pools to discuss the idea of installing a pool. Vince was at our house the following evening, patiently explaining the features, benefits, advantages and disadvantages of several pool types and manufacturers. With this honest and unbiased information, we decided to go with a fairly large but simple fiberglass pool and we couldn’t be happier. Vince and Joe guided the project from conception through design to professional installation. They respected our budget while never compromising quality and completed our pool on time. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to partner with Simply Pools and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys.
Michael, North York
I am more than happy to write a testimonial for Vince, Joe, Vanessa and the team at Simply Pools. They have been excellent to work with.
Right from the original quote, we found Vince to be incredibly knowledgeable, courteous and always very quick to respond to the many, many questions we had as we walked through the process.
They took care of everything in advance of the installation, and the entire install itself was completed in just three days. They were very courteous to our neighbours by keeping the disruption of what is a significant construction project, down to a minimum. Both of our neighbours – neither of whom have a pool – commented how impressed they were with the speed they worked at, and the courteous behaviour of the install team
Additionally, the after service was excellent with Franco coming to our home on more than one occasion to help us understand how to run the pool efficiently and easily
We are glad we went ahead with a fiberglass pool than a concrete base. The quality of the finished product is excellent and the equipment we have is top of the range to keep our running costs and operating noise down. We love our pool and thoroughly recommend Simply Pools!
“Simply Pools is by far the most professional team of contractors that we have ever worked with. We have done extensive renovations to our home, but have never had such a positive experience as this one. Everyone from their excavation team, their office staff, the electrician they use, and all points in between did a stellar job. They delivered what they promised and completed their work in an amazingly short time frame. It was so nice not to have our backyard be a mess for the entire Summer. We have used our backyard more during this Summer than in the previous 10 years of living at our home. We would definitely recommend Simply Pools to anyone considering having a pool installed.
Andrew & Lucia”
I would recommend Simply pools for anyone wanting a fibreglass pool, Vince, Joe and Vanessa answered all my questions all season immediately. They listen to what you want and quote appropriately. Even when we had a bit of an issue with our contractor for the cabana, Vince was right on top of it, and got it settled in timely matter.
Throughout this whole project, we had complete confidence in simply pools. We hired Simply Pools as a turn key company, and every contractor they brought in to work on our product were very professional, and arrived on time and did great quality work. We were swimming in our pool complete with landscaping etc in two weeks. I cannot say enough great things about simply pools and their entire team.
Thank you Vince, Joe, Vanessa and John for making this the best summer my family has had staying at home, we swam every day two to three times a day.
Pamela and Carlo
A final farewell to the season 2013 for our pool.
I just want to send a note to the Simply Pool gang.
This has been our first year with owning/maintaining/ enjoying our pool. We had quite a summer entertaining 10+ pool parties from an 2 yr old birthday party to a regular weekend night swims with friends and a bomb fire afterward add in the fireworks for the long weekend pool gatherings. We have truly enjoyed our backyard oasis!!! From the first day meeting with Vince we had a vision and he brought it to us!
Yes it was a struggle learning how to take care of the pool as I have never done such a thing and with no doubt Franco was my man to contact whether it was the chemicals, to how the pumps work, to step by step emails and texts to walk me through how to clean the cartridges. What an adventure. Thank you to Franco for having the patience and obviously the knowledge to walk me through all the steps.You have a talent to do the simple steps to make it easier for us newbies!
Too you Vanessa was my front lady which when I sent an email ( was many and many) was quick to respond and got everything in motion from day one back in May. I know the guys are super busy and last year don’t get me wrong Vince was there in a email/text beat to help my 10 pm texts on what was happening with pool and helping me not to blow it up lol , but adding Vanessa was brilliant, She was/is always fantastic with her reply’s/phone calls.Made me feel at ease after I had my concerns. If it was a few days I never felt that I couldn’t do re email/call to her, she was always re assuring. I know its very important that the first person your customers talk to is VERY important and Vanessa is perfect!
Pool guys Vince and Joe. I just want you both to know you guys ROCK! YOU both are hands on in all aspects of the job, Maybe not a lot of people notice but Eric and I noticed that no matter what has happened after a year of the installation you guys have always been there and If I really had a problem ( so small or large) I knew I could just send a personal email out and get an answer. I expected a new “team” to come out today to close the pool as I know the company was getting bigger , but when “the boys ,Vince, Joe , Johny walked around I was a bit surprised but also happy that they came. It is so relieving to know the ones that installed and opened/closed/opened were here to do the closing. Kinda made me think WOW they care. Well done!! those little perks makes it feel so much better for a customer.
I wish Simply Pools a very wealthy rest of 2013 and this company Vince and Joe have built, Cheers to bigger and better.
Enjoy your down time this winter all of you, Believe me anyone I know knows your company name!!
Eric, Cathy dePencier . Oakville
Thank you and all the staff at Simply Pools for the wonderful summer enjoying our new pool.
I have never had a pool and trying to find a contractor that was reputable and capable was a challenge. We met Julio at our house to discuss the project and from that day on things could not have gone better. Julio was prompt and made every effort to address any concerns we had. He provided us with the sort of advice that only someone with many years in the industry can, even insisting that we visit his house to see the pool in his yard.
Vanessa your patience and experience was invaluable in navigating the permit process and all the scheduling that was involved. Your friendly demeanor allowed us all to laugh when the weather and permit politics caused some minor delays. Thank you also to Franco for his assistance in getting the panel programmed and teaching me how to keep it running efficiently.
One of the concerns that I had before this project began was, how would I find the time to co-ordinate with the other contractors for the pool and fence? Simply pools put that problem to rest very quickly and all the people that they used for the many different jobs were professional and very easy to work with.
Joe, Vince and the crew had to deal with some very challenging conditions on this project and through it all they completed it all without a hitch. They were all very personable, and absolute professionals.
Thank you to everyone at Simply Pools for all your hard work. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending you to all my friends and neighbours.
Bill P. Caledon, ON
Great guys, very professional. The speed at which our pool was installed, was amazing! We were swimming and enjoying our new backyard before we knew it. Even the neighbours were surprised how quick our backyard was transformed into a beautiful oasis, minimizing the disturbance to the neighbourhood.
Bruno I. Mississauga, ON
From start to finish, Vince and Joe were a pleasure to deal with. Our planning process started in the middle of winter, and required many back and forth conversations about ideas, options and budget. Vince did a great job answering questions and allaying our concerns. Their designer, Laureen, was able to take our ideas, and create 3D renderings to give us an idea of what the finished project would look and feel like. Our design included a spillover spa and a rock feature, and included full landscaping of our backyard. Additionally, I had a specific requirement for equipment placement that they were able to incorporate and the installation of the mechanicals was neat and very professional, including all of the automation. Through the whole build process, is was reassuring to know that we only ever had to deal with Vince when we had questions (although we got to know Chris, the landscaper, as well). And when a few small design changes came up during the build, it was easy to get Vince on the phone to discuss them quickly and make slight alterations when required.
+ Vince and Chris’s crew did a great job keeping the street in front of my house clean. You have to realize that there is a lot of equipment sometimes parked on the street overnight, or gravel and other building materials. These guys did a great job of keeping it well marked, neat and tidy. I had two neighbours come over to tell me they were impressed by this as well.
+ Vince was involved throughout the entire process. When we ran into a (small) issue regarding the original design of the spillover for the spa, a call to Vince and a quick conversation about other options was all that was required. Vince managed to find a much more agreeable solution and we were delighted with the results.
+ Laureen personally spent a good portion of a day moving various plantings so that they were positioned perfectly. After the project was completed, we were able to confirm that Laureen’s 3D renderings of our backyard prior to the start of construction were remarkably accurate with respect to the finished project.
In all, we were very happy with the whole process and are thrilled with the results. We’d recommend Simply Pools to anyone considering putting a pool in their backyard too.
Thanks Vince and Joe!
