"My wife and I have used the services of Handel’s Pool Service since 2007. Initially, Handel Caballero’s company cleaned the pool at our Rancho Mirage home and replaced some tiles. In 2014, as a result of an accident, we needed to have the surface of our pool redone. At the same time we decided to replace 1400 square feet of concrete pool deck with paver stones, re-do and resurface the spillway from the spa to the pool and install natural gas burning fixtures at either side of the spillway. All of this work was performed by Handel’s crews and the result was spectacular! The job was done earlier than promised, the quality of work was first class, his men were friendly and accommodating and the job was completed at a fair price. Without reservation or hesitation, I would recommend Handel’s Pool Service for any and all work you need done to your pool or your back yard. You will not be disappointed."

"If you are looking for a contractor to re-plaster your pool, look no more.... If you are looking for a contractor to manage & execute multiple tasks around the pool, such as redoing the deck, the drains, or repainting the outside of a house, look no more.... My husband and I have found the miracle-man, the most reliable contractor. His name is Handel, from Handel's Pool Service in Palm Desert, California. Handel is a rarity among contractors: he actually does what he promises, and he does it on time and for the quoted price. Handel can indeed be trusted. We know this for a fact. The day after we hired him for the job, we left for our main residence in Northern California. When we came back to the Desert, less than two weeks later, the entire job was done and was done perfectly! So much so that we decided to hire Handel for another job: building a barbecue island on the deck. He started the work the next day and completed it within three days, cement, special countertop, barbecue grill installation, connections, paint job & all… 100% satisfaction. Thank you Handel"

"I have been a customer of Handel's Pools for over 12 years now. He handles all my pool needs at a reasonable price and always does excellent work. He responds quickly to my phone calls and if any immediate issues arise he gets things running again usually in a day or so. Two years ago he refinished my pool with mini pebble tech with stone in place of tile. It is as beautiful today as when it was first done and will be for years to come. This is a vacation home for me so the house sits empty a lot of the time. He always keeps the pool up twice a week even when we aren't here. It is always beautifully maintained when ever we arrive and is ready for use and fun. I have a rental house in the area and he maintains that pool as well with the same dependable service."

“When I bought my house in Cathedral City the pool was in need of repair. The glass blocks around the dam were cracked and filled with a brown liquid, tiles were falling off and in need of repair, the heater was broken and there were dark patches on the plaster. I moved from Chicago and knew nothing about the maintenance of swimming pools. I knew how to shovel snow, but nothing about pools. I contacted three pool companies, one of which was Handel’s Pool Service. Handel, the owner, was extremely responsive. Not only did he explain everything in a language I could understand, he took me out to see other pools he had worked on. I even met a couple of the owners! I found this very helpful and reassuring. He was the only one of the three pool companies who offered this. As the price was right, coupled with his attitude and feedback from his customers, I hired Handel’s Pool Service. I selected new tile and pebble finish from a website and he brought samples of my selection to my house, which saved me having to visit endless showrooms. This enabled me to drop samples into the pool so I could see how they looked underwater. The pool was completely retiled and remodeled and from start to finish it took just six days! I have since recommended Handel’s Pool Service to several friends who have hired him to build new pools in their backyards.”

"We moved from Chicago to the desert knowing a pool was a must-have. We chose our home because there was no pool. We could design our own. Handle was recommended by a friend. After meeting and discussing the project we knew he was our contractor. Throughout the process he was right there always available to answer questions. Never more than a text message away. The materials he presented were wide and varied. The quality was obvious and exceptional. While discussing the layout Handel made suggestions that never crossed my mind. His ideas became focal points of the final design. Most of our new friends have pools and are blown away by ours. It’s not the biggest around but everyone agrees it is the most interesting and notable. The whole process came in on-time and at budget. His men obviously knew what they were doing. You could see they had worked together in the past. They were well coordinated, efficient and punctual. When it came time for smaller accents they were true artisans. Every detail was carried out with precision and professionalism. We refinanced the house shortly after the pool was complete. The pool was appraised within $2,000 of Handles price. Without the slightest hesitation I can state I’m thrilled with the result. Handle said he would do what it takes to make me happy. He did!"
