Inground Swimming Pool

I had already an offer from one of the big pool companies but didn't feel comfortable with the many price variables and possible add ons left open in the contract. Good for us we found Josh and LIDO POOLS just before last winter set in. He made a great first impression, was very competent and helped us through the planning and design phase. The first pool to be built in spring was ours and the team with John and his boys was outstanding. Great work very reliable and high customer focus. John always called us back immidiately when we had questions around the pool. For me this is very important since i expect the pool company not only doing the installation but also helping me to keep the pool and the water in best condition throughout the season.

ingroung swimming pool and spa

Josh at Lido competed with several other companies for our business and won with an EXCEPTIONAL design. His crew headed by John were always pleasant and knowlegeable. The final result is spectacular and I must tell you the project came in EXACTLY on price and exceeded our expections. Thanks Josh, karen and jerry

Swimming Pool, Aquatic Services

It was an easy decision for us to have Lido Pools build our swimming pool at our new home in an exclusive gated community in the middle of Emerald Hills Golf & Country Club. When I ran a successful swimming pool company in the 70's and 80's I was very familiar with the award winning designs and excellent quality swimming pools that Lido was installing. They continue to lead the industry with unique vinyl inground pools that no other builder is capable of delivering at a great price. The Lido pool construction team lead by John is fantastic. They kept our job site very clean and they are very reliable. The Lido team knew that the 2007 Winter was fast approaching and that our pool being in the Oak Ridges Moraine needed to be installed within one month from the date that we signed our contract to ensure that we would have use of our pool early in the season of 2008. Josh Katz assured me that would work and he delivered on-time. Josh is a fantastic designer as he is helping us transform our entire back-yard into a paradise. We listned to his great design ideas and he is extremely knowledgeable about all the latest advances in pool equipment. Josh introduced us to innovations in swimming pools and equipment that we didn't know was possible. As a result our inground vinyl pool looks like a concrete pool with spill over spa and illuminated dual water-falls. Josh and his team went beyond the call of duty to help us with our landscaping and (i.e. gas & electrical) utility needs. We are very satisfied with our Lido pool and the experience during installation. We are delighted to provide an excellent reference about Lido Pools. It is obvious after seeing other pools installed from the so called high-end pool builders the difference in quality and design. In our opinion Lido builds the best pool with the right equipment at the best price on the market.

New swimming pool construction

Lido constructed our pool in September 2007, so we have just enjoyed our first summer of use. We love our pool, have had many compliments on it, and it is exactly what we wanted - custom shape, colour, size, depth, water feature, etc. Josh from Lido encouraged us to envision something unique, and since we are both designers, this was very encouraging. Plus, any special features we requested, did not seem over-priced, compared to other pool companies. In fact, we were quite surprised at how reasonable Josh was to negotiate with, and how eager he was to ensure it would be the pool of our "dreams". The actual pool construction was not without glitches or delays, however Josh (and his team headed by John) always comes through for you, and they are completely intent on making things right. You can tell alot about a contractor by how they handle a problem (even when they are not the cause of it, e.g. product delays), and Lido Pools is a contractor you can rely on - that integrity and committment creates a lasting relationship with their clients. Even when called the year after the project was completed, Josh was responsive and eager to keep us happy. If we ever move from this house, Josh and Lido will build our next pool, too - highly recommended!

Inground Pool

I will make this simple and to the point. We negociated our pool installation March 2007 with Josh of Lido Pools for an install a.s.a.p. We had requested to be one of the first jobs of the season. Sure enough....by May 15th we were swimming in our stunning backyard. The quality of workmanship is second to none...but the price is a little better than the big boys you know of. In terms of knowledge...nobody knows more about pools than Josh of Lido pools...that's it..that's all! John and the boys in the crew do a great job...and maintain a clean site....very important to me. Everything went very smoothly from the get go. When there was an issue, it was dealt with immediately. In terms of design suggestions...Josh knows it all and has great vision for your back yard retreat. We are enjoying every minute of our pool season.

Happy swimming from Richmond Hill!

swimming pool

A job that we are completely happy with!! We met with Josh in fall of 2005 to plan for our pool building in spring of 2006. Met with all the competition as well and decided to go with Josh because he came up with great suggestions. He's in the business so he knows what he is doing and will make your project his priority. He has tons of enthiusiasm and will find a way to create exactly what will make you happy. He created an absolute oasis in our backyard, which originally was dreary and we wouldn't use. The pool area has become our haven now - we love it!!! (looks like something out of anchitectural magazine) Josh gave us a gorgeous custom design and gave us great ideas on how to enhance everything without blowing the budget!! Building was supposed to be third week of April and actually started a whole week early - when does that happen with contractors!! They showed up everyday for about 10 days until the work was complete. John, head of the crew, was phenomenal. The work area was kept clean - they even carted away all the garbage. The guys were friendly and more than willing to help out with anything we needed.

If you want a pool company that will go the extra mile and treat your project as if it were their own be sure to go with Lido - I can't say enough about them! I am truly convinced with any other company we would have just gotten a plain pool, with Lido we got a piece of paradise.

Inground Pool Installation

If you are looking to install or renovate an inground pool, look no further than Lido Pools! When we were searching for the right pool contractor, we met with many of the big Toronto pool companies, but none of them demonstrated the incredible knowledge, creativity and attention to detail that Josh did at Lido. We are now almost ready to use our new pool and I can only say that it is beautiful - Josh was very responsive to our wishes and had countless suggestions for achieving the backyard oasis that we were searching for. He has a great crew of guys working with him on his pools and throughout it all our 'site' has been kept as tidy and safe as possible. I cannot recommend them enough!
