Effective December 19, 2008, all public swimming pools and spas must be in compliance with the provisions of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. The Act requires that all suction outlets be equipped with ANSI A112. 19. 8 - 2007 approved VGB covers. If the pool is not designed with split main drains and equalizers (with drains separated at least 36 inches apart) , the pool must have unblockable drains or have a secondary safety device, such as a safety vacuum release system (SVRS) .
Many pools do not comply with the new law by merely changing the main drain covers, because the sump below the drain covers must meet the manufacturer's written specifications. In some cases, this will involve modifications and design of a new sump. I can help with these.
In California, a C-53 contractor's license is required to modify the sump.

Watch out ! Dennis Martinez of Camarillo Pool & Spas will knowingly issue fraudulent contracts with no intention of performing the work with the goal of taking your deposit. In my instance, Dennis required a large deposit because he said Viking Pools required it upon signing the agreement. The contract required work to commence within 15 days. He cashed the check the next morning and confirmed had ordered the pool from Viking Pools and filed for the permits with the city.
After several days and no updates on the plan to commence I queried Dennis about what was happening. He indicated it was all the city’s fault and there was a long delay in getting the permits approved. Out of curiosity I contacted the city and was told “no permits had been applied for my property”. The city said I should ask Dennis for a copy of the permit application receipt. I did so and Dennis said he would drop it by the house.
This never happened and he went radio silent…no response to my calls or texts which up to that point had been immediately replied to. This fueled my suspicion so I contacted the pool manufacturer, (Viking Pools) in Williams, CA who confirmed that 1) the pool had not been ordered and 2) Dennis Martinez aka Camarillo Pool & Spas was not an authorized dealer for their pools and could not have place such an order. I continued to make attempts to contact Dennis Martinez who remained unresponsive to text or phone calls.
When finally did reach him for comment he replied, and I quote,” I’m sorry I lied, I never applied for the permits…” That said, he still contended that he had placed the pool order with Viking pools and paid the deposit, therefore he was unable to refund my money and insisted he would get the permits filed and get the job done. Eventually after I had made several calls to the city and driven to Dennis’s office in Camarillo he put together the pool plans and a week after the project was supposed to have to start Dennis finally applied for the required permits.
The city was sympathetic to the problems I was having with Camarillo Pool & Spas and went out of their way to contact me once approved. I contacted Dennis to let him know they were finally ready and he said he would set up the demo and pick the permits up the next day. When I contacted the city the next day, they confirmed he had not picked them up. I made several attempts to reach Dennis over the days that followed and to no avail. He was once again ducking phone calls and texts. I went to the California State License Board website to see what my options were.
While there I checked the status of his contractor’s license and found out it has been inactivated. Further online searches of “Camarillo Pool & Spas” revealed very recent complaints very similar to mine. In some instance he required large deposits to pay subcontractors and then failed to do so.. resulting in liens on the homeowner’s property. Now these people are out their money AND they are fighting to have liens removed. There are others where he accepted deposits and simply disappeared…
Dennis Martinez of Camarillo Pool & Spas is a blatant liar and a thief. In short, he is a criminal. The most recent information I have is that he has vacated the business premises after conducting a "fire sale" of all of his equipment. I am told he does not occupy a permanent residence but rather a "boat in the marina". Stay Away from Dennis Martinez and Camarillo Pool & Spas!!

I gave Dennis $ 5,450.00 for a Deposit for a Fiberglass pool and it appears he has skipped town with my money. His contractor license is inactive. Please be aware or he will take your money and run.

Dennis built my pool, jacuzzi, and built-in BBQ 2 years ago (January 2007). Before I contracted with him, I interviewed 6 other pool builders. Besides being pleasant and thorough, Dennis was the only one that could answer the questions I had based on problems that my neighbors had experienced when building their pools. For example, Dennis knew what to do if there happened to be underground springs on my property. Once construction begun, he was involved during each phase of the construction process. Because of his hands-on approach, we had numerous discussions that caused me to make several informed changes to my original pool design. Two years after completion of the pool, I am still happy with it and my experience with Dennis. Finally, it took Dennis' team less time to build everything, including a lot of stone work, than it did for the city to approve the construction plans.
