I have been a licensed swimming pool contractor for the past 24 years.  When I first set up Caltech Pools swimming pool leak detection and repair  in the Los Angeles area, I started sizing up my competitiors and doing as much research as possible.  What I discovered during the small amount of research that I did totally blew my mind.

I found that service companies claimed they didn’t need a license, only a certificate from the Health Department–NOT TRUE!  I also found that swimming pool builders were operating under a roofing contractors license.  When I dug deeper, I found that the original license issued to this company had been suspended.  Lastly, I found a large national franchise that had multiple listings throughout the Los Angeles area was operating with suspended or expired licenses.

If you’re dealing with a swimming pool contractor whose license is invalid, there is a good chance that they are not bonded and that they DO NOT carry liability insurance.  A company performing work in California must indicate their license number and make it visible on their corresponding website, business cards, estimates and invoices.
