Comon guys lets get back into this. After all only in America could a guy screw the public, get barred from an industry, and than hide behind his wife's license and get away with it!

Hey everyone. Bought my coast spa from posiden in 2006. They went out of business. Have used Tim's business for parts and on site repairs as needed and have found them (and Tim) to be reliable and trustworthy.

I will continue to use Tim in the future.

Gee Glen that must be some commute from Texas to Melville when you need chemicals or parts. I guess just because you say he is great we can all forgive Tim for all the scams he pulled at Poseidon...

I was in Dallas when i posted smart ass. All i was saying is that i did not have a negative experience. I had a positive one. Your viewpoint, although entertaining, seems like that of a nine year old. It takes some maturity and discipline to communicate on these forums ( a challenge for you?) but if all you want to do is name call, enjoy!

Hey Glen...watch your tone with me or I will shave your entire head like I did to Timmy. No one gives a crap about your world travels or your rare one time positive experience that you had with your Coast Spa. No doubt you are a relative of Tims that lent him money. You want him to suceed so you can get your fifty bucks back!

Hey Glen...what do you know, you are an English teacher too! Why don't you come by and visit me next time you are up from Texas picking up some parts and chemicals from Timmy's store. I will ship you back to Texas in a cardboard box! I told you to watch your tongue. Go wax Timmy's head to a beautiful shine...

Tim Greco makes me laugh. I may have been born in the morning, however it was not yesterday morning. Does Tim Greco really think that we beleive that business at Poseidon was just "peachie" up until the time he left? As soon as he left Poseidon the place fell apart, right.
I am sure that Joe Gartner did not rack up millions of dollars in debt in less than 18 months. The wheels of bad business were set in motion way before "Baldy" alias "Tim Greco" left Poseidon!
Now "Timmy Boy Greco" Masquerades on Route 110 as a legitimate businessman. I have a couple of questions for Mr. Greco. How come you never post your "Consumer Affairs License Numbers" in your ads as you are required to do?
Why do you hide under 3 names at your Route 110 store. Could it be a licensing issue?

The Better Business Bureau says Timothy Greco is banned by Consumer Affairs and he can not engage in this type of business. Check it out.
Let that bald bastard list the terms of the sale as if he did not intentionally dump that load he had monies set for dispute issues,if the place only transfered owners. More than likely the move with out knowing this jackoff is to exhuast the debt through the sale ,check the recorded liens from vendors or any actions that may tie him in and get a attorney to personally go at him if you think this is true if not then cut him loose ,him and his but buddy may be doing this together,dont know these people but I may be wrong without hering the whole story.

You are Mr. No Balls .You'll help your ass ,I see the shows where the consumer gets ripped and does nothing.Dont pull your hair out over this -Forgot you have none.You hide behind the BK rules and act as if you have clean hands ,Give the people the terms of the sale and let them take them to a av1 attorney that I'm sure can tie you in and you will have to settle either way as a contingency attorey will make it so to white flag will be the only choice you have ,A green newby at Siben will jump all over this ,
Wish you did not have to act all tough ,just gave the consumer the coarse to shut you up Fucko.

"Sy Sperling" weren't you the owner as well as a client for the "Hair Club for Men"? Obviously you do not know Timmy from there. Hey Tim instead of acting all "Puffy in the Chest" and stuff, why don't you just address some of the substantive issues here. Like why you hide behind your wifes license at your store? Etc.

That guy is making a biz decision to list under wife done all the time,not a crime ,But the fact is the past proformance and liaibility as set in the terms of the sales agreement ,It may have been cast as a chattle sale not sure the may be recoarse and attachment if the goods were then fowarded to the new location as a stip on the sale contract if buyer was to default,Void of the agreement a action will be able to get more answers for this as a simple deniel is not satifiying the effected consumers

Just for all to know, I have not responded to this thread since Sept 18, 2007. Anything written after this date with my name on it did not come from me. That is the problem with these sites. They are not monitored and anybody (competition) can write anything they want about anyone. Hot Tubs & More / Long Island Pool & Spa has a spotless record with the BBB and in an economy where many are struggling, we are at the top of our game. If anyone needs any help with anything pertaining to pools or spas, feel free to call us or stop by. We will be happy to help you out. As for the name calling and slander, I will not even entertain it.

I would expect that Hot Tubs & More / Long Island Pool & Spa has a spotless record since it is in existence for bareley 4 years (under your wifes name). For a guy who does not hide you do hide behind your wifes name. Why is that Tim...inquiring minds want to know? Just a routine business decision, I don't think so?

He could have went LLC and I dont think he could have been touched on that new venture,He will on a start up show loses probably first 3 years under wifes S (guess only)which is common . The bottom line is that something was done here and there is one person who can lay this out but he will not help as with time hopes this gets pushed under the rug ,Years ago on 112 in patchogue a guy got screwed on a Lazy Boy -strapped it to his truck and and parked outside the store on weekends with signs . Make this guy meet with you and a dispute resolution company and have him lay this out the way the sale was structured, if it is delayed I'am sure in the spring as we uncover our pools will find that there will be customers that you can protect from this guy if truly guilty doing this to another condsumer.He may be more likely to help because he will come out like a hero and may get some old customers back ,you never know

I think I saw Joe Gartner stocking shelves at an Island Recreational, I snuck up behind him and said "IRS" and he urinated all over the floor and soiled his Island Rec uniform. Tim Greco is hiding behind his wifes consumer affairs license on Route 110 by Costco. He operates under multiple names...

Pool Parts Plus
Hot Tubs & More

Tim passes out propoganda on bright orange paper claiming how he is a victom of a smear campain. WHEN YOU CHECK THIS BLOG TIM PLEASE TELL US ALL ONCE AN FOR ALL WHY YOU PUT THIS COMPANY AND LICENSE IN YOUR WIFES NAME? Maybe when you confess your sins this blog will cease to exist. By the way anyone with a pulse and a check can get accredited by the BBB. So take it easy with how great your record is. Joe Gartner aint no angel but stop throwing this poor bastard under the bus. You and Joe put Poseidon on a komikazi way before you left!
