The first day of spring is just two weeks away, but the temperature outside is hovering in the teens here in the Chicagoland area. Living in the Midwest requires us to battle the “winter blues” for a much longer period. The increased exposure to cold temperatures and less sunlight can contribute to winter stress, signaling […]

I had called about a leak in my spa. They spent a lot of time looking for the source. Once the jets were started they saw that the problem was a pump that had frozen up. replaced and running same day. Thanks.read more

I have had 2 experiences with Arvidson Pool & Spa's. First time purchasing a Hot Tub, Shelly was phenomenal, showed and explained all of the different types asked what we were looking for. The delivery was smooth and the guys were great. I ended up moving 3 years later and had to get rid of my hot tub. Arvidson's took my hot tub on consignment. Everything was explained in detail, they picked it up, cleaned it and before they could get it on their showroom floor they sold it. I have recommended them to others and would do business with them again. Wonderful company and very customer friendly.read more

Excellent service and expertise. All good with my hot tub as a result of listening to them and buying their suggested products.

We put our tub on reserve at the beginning of summer and had to hold off on delivery and installation until late October because we were rebuilding our deck - Autumn was very patient with us on that, and also very helpful figuring out installation and the proper way to get everything filled up. Love the spa, absolutely would recommend.read more

Bought ours last week. Delivery went smooth, Had an issue in the beginning called right away and a tech called us back and walked us through the process which fixed the problem right away. Autum came to the house and gave us a tutorial on chemicals and how to properly use the spa! Customer service has been great so far!read more

We purchased a Caldera spa from Arvidsons and are very glad we did. Autum was the sales rep and did an outstanding job in guiding us to the correct spa for us. She was very knowledgeable and everything went very smooth. She followed up the sale with an orientation at our house once the spa was installed and powered. I would highly recommend them.read more

We bought a hot tub a little over a year ago. We haven't had any issues. Autum sold us ours and just recently sold one to my co-worker Chuck Fish. Thanks to Autum for her great service and for the referral credit.read more

Great Staff and products. That's why they have been in business for 60 years. Been going there for 15+ years. A lot of wannabes out there but they don't compare to this company A+++.

I am new to Illinois and moved into a house recently with a defective pool pump and filter and obviously had trouble trying to get the pool opened. Arvidson Pools & Spas responded quickly to my inquiries with a quote.I want to thank Arvidson for getting Carlos out to install my new pump and filter. I must say that Carlos did a great job and did it neat and tidy. I can now get my pool up and running properly and hope to have it fully clear by the time my guests arrive tomorrow afternoon. I will be in touch with you at the end of the season to have the pool closed properly.Thank you again.read more

Twenty years ago we had a new pool put in and chose Ardvison at the time and enjoyed that pool & process. Anytime we needed work or advice they were our go to people. Four years ago we moved up to Lake Geneva and bought a home with an existing older pool. This pool needed a new liner right away and new pool filter equipment. Once again we turned to Ardvisons to do this work which they did so efficiently we were up and running the first summer. Now this year we decided to do an entire decking/ coping upgrade! This being s bigger financial investment we had Ardvisons up once again and Doug Marunde helped design and advised us on our new decking! This totally changed the look of our old pool and we love the curvy design the Doug helped us plan. Because I am never happy until the pool is up and running each spring Doug got many messages from me ( we actually had snow delays during this spring). Doug and his team patiently field my questions. When it was finally start up the equipment day and we couldn’t get it going Doug showed up at 7 am on a Sunday to figure it out. Perhaps a long review but we have a long history with Ardvisons and would give them more than a 5 star if we could. Even have my new neighbors using them for there liners. Integrity and efficiency have earned them our trust!read more

We bought our hot tub from and that was a good experience, but their on going service is what separates them. It is so rare to find a service company that is always on time, they do what they say they will do, are always doing the right thing by you - they are just great to deal with.read more

We've had our spa for almost a year and have been so pleased with it and the service we have received from Arvidson. Can't say enough good things about the folks who work at this fine business. A family-owned business that takes excellent care of its customers.read more

I would highly recommend this company even though another company they recommended for deck work did sub standard work at my home. When made aware of the problem, Arvidson Pools stepped up and helped me as much as they could to correct the problem. It took awhile to deal with all the issues as they had to pull their own quality workers (thank you Kelly!) off other jobs to address mine. In short, it is not what companies do when things go well, it is what they do when things do not.read more

Arvidson Pools and Spas are my go to for my pool needs. They are experienced, friendly and always so helpful for any of my needs, large or small. They have top, state of the art chemical analysis to always keep my pool in balance. They have pool school to teach you how to maintain your pool yourself, or offer great service to help take that burden off to keep your pool sparkling clean and running perfectly. I am so grateful to them!read more

It’s been just over a year that we brought our Calderra Niagara Spa. We don’t like it, we LOVE it. It has been one of the best purchases we ever made. We put it on our upper deck so that we could use it without going too far from our back door in the winter. We use it all the time. The buying process was wonderful. We had gone to other places that sell hot tubs and we always felt pressured to buy now. Not so with Arvidson. When we walked in the front door we were shown the models on the floor and never pressured to buy one. All our questions were answered and then we were left to wander the store and discuss our options. Arvidson came by the house to check out our space to ensure we could put a hot tub where we wanted to and after a few more visits to the store we made our purchase. Everyone at Arvidson has been terrific. They don’t just sell you a unit then forget about you. They helped me understand the chemisty of the spa water and also they offer free on-going water testing. We would recommend Arvidson Pools & Spas to anyone that wants to purchase a Hot Tub. Thank you Arvidson! Yvonne & Bud B.read more
