"My mom and I would like to let you know how much we are enjoying swimming in the pool. It's even lovelier than I ever imagined. Not only did you build us a fabulous pool, you did it so fast and with kind understanding."
Andrea Eisenman – Hampton Bays, NY

"I would like to compliment you on your PROFESSIONALISM, speed and accuracy in which you and your staff diligently perform. What could have been, under normal conditions, a difficult project turned out to be a relaxing and pleasant experience. You are a true gentleman and a very nice person."
Moreton Binn – Amagansett, NY
"We cannot thank you enough for all your assistance in taking care of our pool heater. It broke down... only after two seasons. Even though your company did not do the initial installation... you continued to service us as though you did. We were having a family party the following day and it was very important to us to have a warm pool. Your fantastic company, filled with compassionate, caring and knowledgeable people helped us through this difficult time. In the future when we are telling the story of our home construction, the brightest light will be Tortorella Pools and how wonderful you are to work with."
Patrick & Barbara Grace – Hampton Bays, NY
"We want to compliment your staff. Every single person who has ever come to our home from Tortorella Pools – from the construction and repair crews to the pool cleaners – has been prompt, polite and professional."
Eileen FitzGerald Sudler – Water Mill, NY
"This is a first. I have never written a letter of praise to a contractor before. Your men did a beautiful job in all respects. The pavers were laid down with precision, the steps were matched to the existing deck almost perfectly and all your men were cordial and polite."
Sanford O. Gluck – Rembsenburg, NY
"Thank you for your more than professional service to someone who needed information about pools. Your staff took the time to make me look good to my clients."
Rita N. Schuettinger – Southampton, NY
"The pool looks and works great. I had heard of your reputation for quality and service and my experience has shown that reputation to be well deserved. Most impressive is your team's quick responsiveness."
Jay Kennedy – Orient, NY
"We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our new pool... we never expected such a large project to run so smoothly."
Tina & Mark Messing – East Hampton, NY
"Thank you very much for the beautiful new tile, gunite and pump for our swimming pool. Everything looks great. It has been a pleasure working with your excellent employees. Your efforts are greatly appreciated and your work is outstanding!"
Mark & Marianne Epley – Southampton, NY
"I would like to commend you and your employees in the service department.
I have always recommended your company. I have survived many renovations, re-doing renovation, new construction and re-doing that, too. I have encountered and learned about every cost cutting maneuver, and lack of standards in workmanship that exist.
Your company stands alone. I have always told people that while they make think they are paying more up front for Tortorella, they are getting quality and they stand behind behind their work. Plus they are upfront about the cost.
Although I service my own pool on a weekly basis, I have never been treated as less of a customer. All repairs have been done in a timely manner, as well as the maintenance issues I do not handle (cleaning my filter etc). We use our pool heavily from April though November.
I had a problem with my pool cover, which I am ashamed to say I did not get from Tortorella, since we had spent so much on the pool. A mistake and my mistake. The problem was that there was a space between my wall and the pool. It was small, but I have 9 rescue dogs and some are small. I was always worried.
Your service department could have left me with my issue, but they did not. They handled it and it cost exactly what they said it would."
Joan Vecsey – Shelter Island, NY
"We absolutely love our backyard. It truly is a dream come true that could not have been achieved without you. Working with you and the rest of your staff has been nothing less than outstanding and professional. Everyone who represents J. Tortorella Pools has one thing on their minds: that is the highest standard of excellence possible. We started with a sit down meeting and ended with a standing ovation! Hats off to J. Tortorella Pools!"
Steve and Gina Jacklitsch – Bohemia, NY
"We are thrilled with the work you and your team have done in building our swimming pool. It has been a great pleasure to work with you on this project."
J. Tomlinson Hill – East Hampton, NY
"I am writing ... to inform the ASA of the help I received from Joseph Tortorella of Serafina Concrete. I just purchased a new gunite machine to install pools and had some trouble with the mix, workability of the material after it was shot and nozzle technique. The manufacturer of the equipment has been no help due to the fact they have given me misinformation. So, I turned to the ASA for help. I called the ASA to hopefully get some of my questions answered but was told there was no one there to answer them? I was directed to the ASA website Buyers Guide tab and was told to look under consultants. I was hesitant at first because most were pool builders or contractors themselves. I thought, why would another pool builder be willing to help me? Then I found a contact for Serafina Concrete. I went to their website and liked what I saw, information on dry process gunite and excellent equipment. It seemed like they knew what they were doing. So, I called and to my surprise spoke to Joe who was more than willing to and the key here is "knowledgeably" answer my questions and even offer me more tips and advice than I asked for. With his help he righted a sinking ship! The mix he suggested was shot with minimum rebound, dust and was easily finished. As it turned out most of the information the equipment manufacturer had given me such as mix, material pressure, water pressure and nozzle technique made EVERYTHING harder to do! It would have been better if they had just told me they didn't know rather than give me the wrong information. Thank You Joe, you didn't have to help some stranger but I'm grateful you did. Hopefully, twenty years from now I will get a call from some stranger asking for help and I will have the experience and knowledge to pass along as you did."
Peter Zebrowski – Buffalo, NY
"Just wanted to say... The pools already look amazing and in the 12 years I've worked for Noam, I've never seen the pools look like they do on the first day of opening. I'm just sorry we didn't have Tortorella for all those years.
Service guys who come are always, above and beyond, polite and helpful.
Tracey Flynn - Gottesman Residence(s) – East Hampton, NY
"Thank you for a first class job. Obviously, the construction of a pool is far more complicated than we could have envisioned. I shudder to think of the pain in the process if the consumer picks a substandard vendor. It was a pleasure to see all of your crews perform through all stages of installation with such diligence and courtesy and to do business with a firm true to their word."
Alfred R. Kelman – Sagaponack, NY
"This past weekend, your heater service folks came through like pros for me and helped me out at my current house in East Hampton. You can be proud of them."
