We had a really tiny (almost non-existent) backyard and wanted to turn it into an area of relaxation and entertainment and had no idea where to start. We called Dave Franklin in and told him what we wanted and left the rest to him. He came up with some “out-of-the-box” ideas and a brilliant design that on paper met all of our requirements. We engaged him and his team and they began the work when they said they would and stuck to the schedule really well. They worked with us all through the project and any challenges along the way were resolved quickly without issue. We had a few difference of opinion in some areas but Dave knew he was doing the right thing and convinced us to go along with his plan and the end result validated his view. All in all the end result has delivered more than we expected and we are a really happy customer enjoying a tropical paradise in our backyard. Thanks Dave and team.

We would like to thank and congratulate Dave and his team at Franklin Pools for the amazing work they did with building our pool. From the first moment Dave came and saw us, he was genuine and honest and full of great ideas and advice, and we felt we could trust Franklin Pools from our experience with him. For such an extensive project, the communication was terrific. Dave would meet with us weekly, and give us an update on the progress, and next steps. We commend the work and professionalism of this entire team. The pool definitely has a ‘Wow Factor’ and people are blown away when they first see it. We love our pool and the experience Franklin Designs provided.
