DO NOT DUE BUSINESS WITH RICK SALINAS OF OCEAN POOLS, aka,, 4896 Engadina Pass Round Rock, TX 78665 Buyer beware This guy is a Crook!!!! This horrible experience started mid November and now May 15, 2011 I have to get another pool contractor to fix and finish this still unfinished job. Rick Salinas is a smooth talker telling you how good of a job he will do, his experience in Austin / Round Rock area and he has his own crews no sub-contractors. 1st lie. He does not have his own crews ! He does not pay his subs! On 2 separate occasions sub contractors came to my door for payment and upon getting bids for another contractor to finish this job, I was told by 3 or more people in the industry that most wont work for him because this. 2nd lie. 45 days to complete the job. Almost 6 months later he has refused to finish the job. Now I only paid as progress was done but he asked me for money to purchase equipement. 3rd lie. Never purchased the equipment. Told me he had it on numerous occasions, then 2 weeks ago said he was ordering the equipment??? I never received the equipement. Every word that has come out of Rick Salinass mouth was a lie. After I hired a attorney who wrote a letter demanding they finish or be sued, he brought in another contractor named Josh Salinas of Dreamskapes ( ( to try to finish the job. Josh said all the right things but 1 month later virtually nothing has been done. Josh stated he was always waiting for money from Rick and that many of his subs would not show up for ridiculus reasons and that many feared they would not be paid. Of the work Josh was responsible for ALL MUST BE RE-DONE! The tiles were not put on correctly, not level, not enough thinset to assure that the water would not leak into the gunite behind. The concrete decking was poured to shallow to allow cool deck product to be used to be level with the coping. They poured it as if we were using stone not cool deck. Now more concrete must be poured to fix the job. The grading of the deck was also wrong and concrete must now be cut to add drains. The 2 different contractors noticed these problems a few seconds after walking in the back yard. Incompatence! The bottom row of rocks for the waterfall must be redone because it was not properly waterproofed behind. They were supposed to pour a concrete pad for the pool equipment but actually put in some sort of concrete like plastic pad which is a joke. They broke my neighbors fence and did not repair it. I am going to great lengths to expose this crook so another unsuspecting family doesnt have they dreams crushed by him. If you have any questions feel free to contact me @
