ive been using this company for a few years now. I would NEVER use any other company again. Aside from the fact that their prices are amazing, their service matches it. Barry pays close attention to detail, going that extra mile to make sure it's done perfect. Yes, perfect! I had an issue this summer with my water pressure. Not only did he show up asap, he fixed the problem within the hour, and didn't overcharge. To be honest, it was so low, I almost felt guilty. Almost :). Seriously, this guy knows what he's doing, and one of the nicest guys I've ever met. Use this pool company. You won't be disappointed. What an amazing find. These other pool companies could learn a few things from them. You have my business and respect for life!

We have a new house and a new pool and were so happy with MATP's service. They took their time and were happy to explain things to us. They were thorough and professional. Can't wait to have them open our pool again in a couple weeks!

We are new to Brantford and had Barry open our pool for us. It's our first time with a pool and he did a great job. Explained everything in easy terms. He and his partner were a great help at a very reasonable price. Can't ask for more than that. I would highly recommend Manaboutthepools.

Great Customer Service

If you ask, they will answer. We were fairly new to pool service when we met Barry. He helped us to learn how to keep the upkeep going throughout the summer. We've been with him ever since. He's the only one we trust now to open/close our pool.

Best Pool Man

Honestly I purchase a house with a pool out of the blue, hired a few terrible pool companies to help out and Barry came to the rescue. Would have filled it in by now without him!

We met Barry after my husband suffered injuries from a motor cycle accident. Having always opened and closed our pool himself, he was somewhat reluctant to hand over the job. When we met Barry, my husband and I were thrilled to have him take care of our pool needs. He has done a fantastic job for us over the past few years, and has even offered advise on maintenance etc. Thank you Man about the pools, you've made this part of our life painless and fun !!!

Excellent service

I found MATP's on line and booked their pool opening service.I had been using another service provider but was increasingly unhappy with the quality of service I was receiving.What a difference with Barry. I will never use anyone else for all my pool needs.

Barry has opened/closed and done maintenance work on our pool for about four years. He's very friendly, professional and gives outstanding customer service. He is honest, reliable, dependable and he does great work. He explains things well and will often send a follow up e-mail if we weren't able to talk about what he found, with instructions of what to do next etc. I would highly recommend him to look after all your pool needs!

A year ago we moved into our home with a pool, and never having owned one, l was at a loss on what to do and when, as it was a little murky. Barry came over on short notice and had the situation clarified and under control in one visit. He now has all our opening and closing duties. Quick, efficient and uncomplicated!, Thank you!

Great Service!

Barry did an excellent job changing the sand on our filter. Our pool was up and running quickly, and he made sure to go over how to maintain it. We contacted him on a Sunday and we received a reply the same day! Very satisfied customer.

Man About the Pools has been helpful, efficient and effective. We purchased a new house and the water was green with algae build up. Within a day of phoning Barry was here to clean the pool and give us great instruction on how to care for the pool. He made the process very understandable and easy and recommended a great product called CPool which we've been using with awesome results. We will definitely use Man About the Pools for our pool needs.

Excellent Service

Barry is very personable and professional. I didn't know much about pools when we moved to our home a few years ago. Barry was very thorough in explaining how to care for my pool after opening, and I have never had any issues by following his instructions. He opens and closes my pool every year and will continue to do so with his thorough and efficient service. Highly recommended.

Our pool saviour!!

Following a short break away from the house one weekend in the summer we returned Sunday night. Monday am we found our pool was emerald green!!! We had a pool party the coming Saturday and we were very concerned about fixing it. I had been using another pool company at that time and despite many visits and product trials during the first few days nothing was working. Out of desperation I turned to Kijiji where I found reference to Barrys company. The company description appealed to me and I called on the Wednesday. Brian found time in his schedule to visit on the Thursday morning. He worked his magic and by Friday am the pool was clear! In fact clearer than it had ever been!! I have so much respect for his positive attitude and integrity. I discovered other pool companies were frequently overcharging me for similar work in the past. Barry is a breath of fresh air. He is punctual and honest. Looking forward to this years opening!!

Great Service!

We've had a great experience with Man About the Pools from day 1. Barry is always on time and gets the job done in the most efficient way while still taking the time to explain the processes along the way if we want to learn. He's honest and approachable which has made being owners of a new pool a really smooth process. We would recommend his services for a great and seamless experience.

We are new pool owners and really appreciated being able to hang around and learn more about pool maintenance when Barry was closing the pool and opening. And he was very quick to answer questions in the middle of winter when I thought there was a problem with our cover.

We have had Barry come out twice to service our pool. The first was for a sand change, and the second to close our pool for the season. We are new to owning a pool, and Barry was very helpful, and answered all of our questions. We didn't have to wait long to have Barry come out when we first moved into our house and our pool was green. Within 2 days of contacting him, Barry was at our place. We are very happy with the service we received.

we love Barry!!!

When we met Barry a few years ago we had been trying to open and close our pool on our own (a job I would dread). When circumstances changed and we needed someone to provide the service, we had the good fortune of meeting man about the pools. What a star he is, he has been opening and closing our pool ever since with such expertise I just can't imagine spring without Barry. I wish we had contacted him from the beginning. I can't wait!!! It's almost pool time !

worth every penny

Our first season with a new pool we thought we could close and open ourselves but now that we have had Barry do this, we would not consider another option. We look forward to seeing you again in the spring!

Pool Closing

★★★★★

Lynne and Barry were quick in replying to my request for closure with an agreeable date. Lynne reminded me the day before and Barry called to ask if he could move our time up earlier as he had finished earlier. He was quick to assure me if it was an issue to not worry about it. Barry arrived was professional and very communicative in regards to what he was doing and why. He noticed an issue with our cover for the steps and gave us a water bag to ensure it didn't fly off. I was recommended to them word of mouth and I couldn't be happier with their service and their respect for myself and my property. Recommendations are everything is small business and I wanted to be sure they had one from me. They get it word of mouth any chance I can.

Barry and Lynne are great! Lynne keeps us informed. We called Man about the pools because our previous service company could not open our pool. Barry returned our call, we told him what size and shape our pool was and the obstacles involved. He did not see that as a challenge. As a matter of fact, we have now been with him 3 years strong and loving how much care he takes in opening and closing our pool, but not only that, he gives great advice on how to keep the water blue. We have a great clear pool every year. Almost time! Thanks!

Barry and Lynne really have something special with this business. Barry has been opening and closing for us since 2012 and is always super professional, efficient and most of all, knowledgeable. He's rescued our pool on more than a few occasions! I have zero hesitation when asked who I would recommend for pool services. Got to be MATP!

Barry and Lynne provided excellent customer service from the booking right to the pool opening. Friendly, knowledgeable and promptly on time. This was our first time with a pool and Barry was very helpful with how and when to do what is needed. I have already confirmed the opening of our pool with them right after they closed it last year. No need to go anywhere else when you have people like this working for you  David
