"I compared prices and options between SEVERAL different pool companies to begin with and I’m so happy I chose Aqua Retreat/Upward Way! Deland made my pool dreams an absolute reality and gave me so many options others wouldn’t. His service and personal dedication to finish my pool and make it everything we wanted was unbelievable. Every time we called or texted with our millions of questions he responded quickly and courteously! In the end, we gained a great friend, got awesome service & the pool BEYOND our dreams!"

- Lindsey Howze Law


"After getting several quotes on our pool we finally agreed to use Deland and his team at Aqua Retreat. At first we were a little skeptical due to the DRASTIC decrease in price but they absolutely exceeded all of our expectations and gave us the pool of our dreams."
- The Nelson Family

"We are so thankful that we chose to let Deland help us with our new pool. We tried to deal with other pool companies in the area but it was difficult. Tthey never could look at our yard to quote the pool and when they did they had their own ideas of how it should look. The main issue was the pricing we received from other companies. They were ridiculously high and when questioned they acted as if it were a take or leave it and they really didn’t need the work because they were booked 8 months out. As I am in the construction industry I know the costs of all the items included in the process of building a pool and I knew they were adding a lot of extra cost.
Working with Deland was a complete breath of fresh air. We sat down and went over all the items that make up the total cost of the pool and he helped me choose the best value items. He started within weeks after we worked out all the costs. At the end of the day we have a great pool and saved at least 50% of what the other companies were willing to charge for the same design.

I would highly recommend Deland to anyone that is looking to build a pool."
