Pool And Landscaping
Homeowner review by Malak in Toronto
My husband and I had done our research and met with several pool companies, but after meeting with Elliot, we knew we had to go with YR Pools. We were impressed by his vast knowledge, ideas and his easy-going personality. My husband must have asked a million questions, along the way and Elliot always answered his calls and was very patient guiding us every step of the way. He helped us choose the best pool size, given our limited space and designed a beautiful landscape surrounding it. His crew were very professional, polite and very hard working. It can be very daunting getting into a project of this nature, but with Elliot he really made the process so smooth and we felt confident the entire time. We love our backyard paradise and everyone who sees it, feels the same. I have recommended Elliot to several neighbors and friends. If you're looking for someone who has a wealth of experience and knowledge, truly wants to make sure you're happy at the end, and works within your budget, then look no further. Elliot is a pleasure to deal with and we are so happy we chose YR Pools.

Inground Dolphin Fiberglass Pool And Landscaping
Homeowner review by Kelly Stalker in Mississauga
We signed on with Elliot in the Winter of 2016 for a Spring install of an inground fiberglass pool. We had done our research thoroughly and knew what we wanted which was a Canadian made pool. Elliot worked harder at gaining our trust and putting our minds at ease than any professional we'd ever worked with. Come Spring (which was a challenging weather Spring if you all remember the snow in April) Elliot and his crews came through with flying colours. We were swimming this past May 24th weekend  with our family in the searing 27 degree weather which he had promised ! I must say it's very rare to engage the services of a contractor and have your opinion of them get better and better over the course of the job - but in terms of this company, that has been our experience. His crews are wonderful and pleasant as much as they are super hard working and competent. They are scrupulously clean and respect your property. Their work days don't end until your job is done, which was amazing and again, rare. The aftercare is superb as well - Elliot is but a text away and never ever doesn't return the text or call, day or night, weekday or weekend. I think there must be clones of him for the amount of work he manages and keeps up with ! In closing I would say that my husband and I are probably the toughest but fairest people to work for and this company which is really Elliot and his crews, are top rated for us and we have already recommended them to two colleagues for work this year. Truly a pleasure to work with !

Pool Installation
Homeowner review by johnnyd0978 in Richmond Hill
They installed my pool and did my interlock landscaping. They were quick and professional. Great job fair priced.i would definitely recommend these guys to anyone. I also like the fact they have a store that sells pool supplies etc. Not a fly by night company for sure

Hot Tub Rental
Homeowner Review by Mary Newberry in Toronto
I rented a hot tub for my partner's 70th birthday. It was fantastic! We live right downtown, and their service couldn't have been better. I sent an email on Tues and it was installed on Thursday. We had a bit of a problem with the water retention at first. I called and they came almost immediately, with a spare in case we needed it. We didn't and it was fixed and we had a wonderful time. We'll rent it again, maybe for my nephew's 30th in the winter. I highly recommend them.

Inground Pool And Landscaping Project
Homeowner Review by Dan in Toronto
Elliot and his team did a great job with our pool project. Since the initial contact to discuss our options for a backyard swimming pool and get estimates, Elliot was very professional and provided great support and advice. He interpreted very well what we had in mind and enhanced our vision with amazing ideas based on his vast expertise and experience.
Throughout the execution of the project, he stayed closely connected with his team and us to ensure everything was on track. He was always available to discuss any details or clarification required, as well as progress updates in general.
The final product great. It was even better than what we were envisioning. We look forward to enjoying our backyard oasis this year and many more to come. Thanks Elliot and team. Very well done!

Thank you it was my pleasure to build what you wanted
Inground Fiberglass Pool, Maple
Homeowner Review by Alexander in Maple
We decided last winter to install a fiberglass pool . We looked into many different companies and had many quotes. We met with Elliot and we were very impressed with his knowledge of pools and landscape . We signed with York Region Hot Tub and Leisure for a dolphin fiberglass pool in blue and it has been awesome . We delayed hooking up the heater because we like the water cold . The only regret we have is that we didn't use Elliot for our interlock we went with another company , regretfully and had issues , we have referred Elliot's company to other people for the interlock and they have raved on about their workmanship . I give YR Pools a 10 all day long .
Company Response:
Thank you for the great review hope you guys continue to enjoy the pool

We would definetly recommend YR Pools. Elliot was very professional and transformed our yard into a beautiful oasis. We could depend on Elliot to resolve any issues that arose quickly and he aimed to make us happy.
Wayne was the site foreman and he was awesome, hardest working guy ever.
They first installed our hot tub and then a few months later they did our inground pool and landscaping , our family and friends were amazed at the transformation in just a few short months.
Thanks Elliot!!

Pool & Backyard Oasis
Homeowner Review by James Smith from Pickering
I first met Elliot on another Oasis he was doing and could see the detail, pride and quality into the project so it was an obvious decision to give him a call when it came to doing my own backyard. Even though my wife and I were very picky on our dream yard, Elliot met with us every time we needed him to come by, took every call and was very patient with us throughout the project. We also had him do the landscaping for the backyard, side and front. We cannot recommend Elliot and his team enough.… read more
Company Response:
Thanks James for the great review cant wait to start your pool up so your family can enjoy it.
Backyard Swimming Pool
Homeowner Review by Sabrina in Woodbridge
We decided to put in a pool this summer (2015). We met with Elliot after getting positive reviews from both a friend and a landscaper that both used this company in the past. We found him to be honest, approachable and easy to talk to. As we knew virtually nothing about pools, we wanted to go with a contractor that was patient and would answer all our questions. After meeting with 5 other companies, we found Elliot was best to service our needs. He walked us through the process, made suggestions and recommendations without being pushy or pressuring us. HIs crew was quick, efficient and neat. Throughout the construction, he was readily available and easy to talk to. He consistently would check in with us to ensure our needs were met. We would recommend Elliot and his company to anyone interested in getting a pool.
Company Response:
Hey Sabrina it was a pleasure to build a pool for you and your family i am sure you are going to have lots of fun and years of enjoyment

Hot Tub
Homeowner Review by Matt in Richmond Hill
After spending many weeks of going to different stores and pricing out various hot tubs my wife and I were getting tired (no sites have prices and many stores had hidden costs). A friend recommended we go to York Region hot tub and leisure and speak to Elliot. We are glad we did. YR Pools gave us the best price of the stores we visited with no hidden costs. Elliot is extremely knowledgable on the pros and cons of various hot tub makers. Elliot is prompt in communications and went out of his way to make himself available for discussions. If you are looking for a hot tub or pool, York Region hot tub and leisure is a must visit.

In ground pool and stone work installation
Homeowner Review by Rich harris from Toronto
Elliot and his crew (YR Pools) were a pleasure to work with. From the date of meeting to the final project, and everything in between, YR Pools were prompt, accurate in time estimates, professional and we couldn't be happier. These guys get it. Suggestions for every possible idea to make it a reality. Post construction, any and all questions, queries and how to's were answered. If your are considering putting in a pool, I highly recommend YR Pools
Company Response:
Thank you for kind words you and Kim were awesome to work for and pleasure to deal with .
In-ground pool, stone coping, concrete patio
Homeowner Review by Michelle from Richmond Hill
We decided later in the season to finally get a pool after years of debating what kind to get. Elliot gave great suggestions, and we ended up getting a 16x32 rectangular steel frame pool with a 7' deep end to maximize the space. The permits took twice as long but once approved it took just 3 weeks from start to finish, despite some heavy rain. The pool was dug on a Friday, the framing went up the next week. It was backfilled, stone coping added, concrete patio poured, liner added and water trucked in. We went with the sandstone liner to give it that Caribbean feel and we love how it turned out. The crew was friendly and conscious of quality workmanship. Elliot is a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him and his company. Since we only completed it the end of September, we can't wait to actually use it this summer!
Company Response:
Thank you Michele it was a pleasure to install the pool and patio for you see you soon for opening
Install fibreglass pool and square cut flagstone
Homeowner Review by Gary Lane from Whitby
After getting poor references on other installers, we gave Elliot a call. We met, and he gave us valuable feedback on our design, and quoted quickly. The install was done professionally with a very experienced crew. Even when we changed the design during construction it was not a problem; "whatever makes us happy!" The pool and Eramosa square cut flag looks amazing and we can't wait for spring to enjoy the backyard, (install was completed in November as we started late in the year.)
Company Response:
Thank you Gary can't wait to start up the pool and have you and Chris enjoy your back yard . It was a pleasure installing the pool for you .
In ground pool installation
Homeowner Review by NICK LATINOVICH from Vaughan
On short notice we decided to install an in ground pool in our back yard, hoping it would be ready for the spring. We met with a number of companies and were immediately impressed with Elliot of YR Pools. He was professional, thorough and provided us with a quote and information such as a 3D image of what the pool would look like. He price was very competitive and his schedule met our needs. They started the work on the date he stated and the workers were very professional… read more

Pool installation
Homeowner Review by Nadir Janmohamed from Mississauga
I have known Elliot Warner for over 10 yrs when he installed a hot tub for me. The level of service, the work performed, exceeded the highest standards. His staff are true professionals, cordial and very courteous. It is because of this that I engaged them again to install my pool, in my new home. Once again, everything was perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend York Region to anyone who wants to insall a pool or hot tub!
Company Response:
Hey Nadir always a pleasure to deal with you and your new house is awsome hope to see you soon . Thank you for the great review
Richmond Hill Installation of Inground Pool
Homeowner Review by Dennis Mason from Richmond Hill
HOTTUB was enlisted to install a pool in our back yard. The process was explained very well and a budget was established. With the exception of extras (which were at our request) the project came in on budget which was very important to us. The contractor was of special help in referring competent electrical and gas contractors putting pressure on them to bring the cost in line. The pool is great and the workmanship is excellent. All in all we are very pleased.
Company Response:
Thank you Dennis I am glad we could make your pool dreams come true we will see you in the spring .

Right from the get go these guys are and continue to be fantastic people to deal with. We had numerous quotes, and when comparing apples to apples, these guys are the best by a long shot.
