I think the name of the company was "Baldy Bean Pools". I'm pretty sure it was named after the owner, Tim Greco".

I got screwed from Posiden. I bought my Ovation Pool a few years ago and it has rotted out Supply and Return Gavalisned steel. Posiden said it was my fault becuase I use a salt generator!

Posiden and Ovation stinks.

Tim Greco is a bad egg and now he hides behind his wifes license in a store in front of Costco on Rooute 110. He blames everything that happened bad at Poseidon on his x partner Joe. I have even heard him claim that Joe is personally responsible for global warming!

"My Uncle builds it and my father installs it....you can't beat that combination".

I think both partners had some endearing qualities that they brought to the partnership. They both cheated in business, and on their wives.

I Bought a pool from Poseidon Pool n Spa in the early 1990's. I bought a semi inground pool and deck. I chose this company because they assured me that using their installers would ensure my warranty. They also told us full payment wouldn't be taken until after a completed installation was done to our satisfaction. It took over 2 months to install the pool and deck only for it to be done incorrectly. The pool was collapsing and finally caved in. This unscrupulous company had the nerve to sue us for full payment of the pool even though it was never used or properly installed with their installers. I found out they had 26 lawsuits pending. I only wish I had the internet back then.I would have posted all the photos and letters that I had showing this despicable company. I remember Joe and his involvement with the problems we had there. I am tempted to post the photos of our nightmare wherever those men do business now.

Poseidon screwed me. My warrantee for life pool has rotted out at the supply and return. I paid $6500 and paid seperate for install and now the pool is worthless. The warrantee for life pool only meant until the go out of business. Above ground rolled pools stink.

Wow "I Know What Joe G Sr Did"...sounds like you want to sleep with Tim Greco formally of Poseidon. Are you sure this isnt Tim's Mom writing all this. If Tim didn't see any of this coming his way in 18 months than as a businessman he is worse than I thought! And again someone please answer this question...If Timmy is as clean as the driven snow why does he have to hide behind his wifes license at his 3rd new location (he moves like a locust) in 5 years?

Well of course he has to hide behind somone elses license...He cant be bonded or insured or licenced to sell pools after what happened with posiodon, just like Joe Gartner Sr cant. Hes not in the pool business anymore, never really was. He was more in the business of fruad. Guy doesnt know up from down, or basic math skills.

I am shocked at this post. Fox News says wet should honor, thank, kiss and wash the feet of business owners because they create jobs and can do no wrong. Besides many of them wear Flag Pins.

They are always right (just ask them ).

By the way this can't be true because we are the greatest country in the world
