Our association with Manuel Soto begain in May 2005. My husband and I interviewed a total of seven swimming pool contractors in the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area. Mr. Soto came highly recommended to us by our general contractor. Without a doubt, Manuel Soto was one of the best referrals we have ever recieved. We hired Manuel to reconstruct, redesign and upgrade all facets of our exsiting pool and spa. My husband and I were very impressed with Manuel’s knowledge of pool construction. He’s equally adapt with design and maintenance. He took the time to sit down and lay out all the various filtering system avaliable. He made me colored samples of plaster and deck surfaces. I remember being very concerned about the new lighting system he had suggested. I didn’t think it would create the ambiance I was looking for. He sensed my trepidation and came over one evening with his electrician. They brought what seemed like a ton of extension cords and illuminated the new set of lights. They then placed them in various areas of the pool. Manuel went the extra mile just so I could be certain and happy with the new lighting. Another wonderful quality about him was that he always took the time to explain the pros and cons of everything that we were interested in. He’s a very understanding and kind person. He handled our project with such care and patience. What a pleasure it was to work with him. Nothing was ever too trivial or complicated. From conception to final completion, Manuel Soto and his associates were highly professional and hard working…They’re the best in the business. They also have a weekly maintenance service that I also highly recommend. But here is the absolute best part, Canyon Country Pool & Spa completed our entire project on time and in budget! That was worth everything for my husband. Mannuel Soto has helped us design, create and maintain our dream pool and spa…Andmay I say “It’s sensational!”
I am writing to say what a wonderful job your company did remodeling our pool this summer. Having discussed with you the removal of the rather strange raised coping that the previous owner had installed – and, critically, since we have a two year old, creating a shallow end where there was none before (previously the shallowest part of the pool was about five feet, and the only entry via the existing steps was into eight feet of water) – your workmen did a perfect job of creating exactly what we wanted. The “wedding cake” design of steps in the shallow end works beautifully, and has allowed our son to gain confidence as he goes from step to step, and the quality of workmanship, including the elegant brick coping you selected for the edge of the pool and matching the color of the concrete of the surrounding patio areas, was exceptional. We were also very happy with the salt/o-zone system you installed, and the heater, which heats the pool remarkably quickly and efficiently. I would also like to mention that your workmen were always very friendly, courteous and considerateof the fact that we sometimes had a young child napping. You and they also worked very well together with San-Rock, who tiled the pool and provided the pebble finish. Thank you for a very pleasurable experience – our first, in terms of having work done on a pool. I would not hesitate to use you again, nor to recommend you to friends.

I can’t begin to tell you how much my family and I have been enjoying our pool and spa. I must commend you and your crews onhow great everything turned out. Your crews were always on time, very courteous and exceptionally professional. They cleaned up everyday and left no mess. The stone work is beautiful and we get so many compliments on the water features. The pool is almost maintenance free and we have had no problem with any of the equipment. My only regret is that we didn’t have you put our pool in sooner. Please feel free to show my pool to anyone who is interested in having your company do the installation.

Thanks for all your great work, pool knowledge and for always coming through with your word when you said you’d do something. I hope not to be too much of a pest with questions as I continue to learn about my pool beyond our contract, but your generous offer to keep helping me is the epitome of service – something sorely lacking in this day and age. The pool turned out great and we are looking forward to using it for years to come. Thanks Manuel and CCP!

I wanted to take the timeto thank you, and your amazing crew for the outstanding job you did on our new pool & spa. From the first time we met you had a vision for the job, and I am pleased to say your implementation was flawless. Not only did you come in on our budget, but more importantly you were 6 weeks early. You transformed our very dull backyard to one of the finest uses of a small space I have ever seen. Judging from the responses we have had from friends, and family it is surely a huge hit. As you know from being a parent the time you spend with your kids is a priority in your life. This pool has already made a big difference in what we do as a family, and i am sure we will enjoy it for many years to come. Once again many thanks for all you did for us, and you were truly a pleasure to work with.
