  • I would recommend this business

The folks I worked with at Penguin Pools, specifically Matt, were nothing short of great. I am a pool owner and came to Matt with a problem and over the winter we exchanged several emails. He provided guidance, suggestions and ultimately sent a service person over to assist us - all without quoting service trip fees or anything else. Crazy, right?

It's rare to find a company that genuinely wants to help people, and that's who they are. Given that I am not an existing customer, nor did they install my pool, and yet they still provided that level of service speaks volumes. No doubt that I will give them my business any chance I can.

Penguin is responsive and reasonably priced. The staff is professional and they’ve been helpful and patient in teaching us how to care for our pool. They’re also mosquito spraying for us this year which we’re excited to use as our outside can be very buggy in summer. We’d recommend them to anyone interested in building or maintaining a pool and the landscaping around it!

  • They take your money but don't deliver.

Penguin Pool is all talk and little action. From the start I was promised the best products and all of the support I would need. It took me all summer of calling and calling to get most of what I ordered, to date I still have not received a LED light and a heater vent conversion kit that were ordered last April. Lots of promises but no action.

Do not work with or hire this company, there are many other reputable pool companies that would value your business.

Customer Testimonials

Writing this review a year and a half after the installation of an in-ground pool, and into the second season of service with Penguin Pools. Overall, it's been a great experience working with Matt and the rest of the crew during initial planning and through the decision-making process and problem resolution on-the-fly during construction. Service and maintenance related interactions afterwards were managed exceptionally well too. Very professional, courteous, and honest owner and company. Highly recommended!

In many cases the thrill and excitement of a pool project can can be quickly or eventually squelched by hassles and disappointment. That was definitely NOT the case with Penguin Pools. We could not be more pleased with the process and the result. Everyone at Penguin Pools was pleasant and professional.
Without question we would recommend Penguin Pools to anyone considering the installation of a pool. Matt is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and fair. He provides all the time and attention you require.

Matt and his crew did a fantastic job installing our pool. They were extremely helpful in the design area explaining all of the different options available. The most impressive thing with Penguin Pools and Matt is that customer service doesn't end the day they fill the pool. Years later, I'm still able to call Matt with any questions I have and he'll respond within 24 hours. Stop looking and give them a call. You won't be disappointed.

I couldn't be happier with my pool. Matt did a wonderful job from start to finish, from the design and layout (and explanation of all of our available options) to installation, to now on-going maintenance. I would recommend Matt and Penguin Pools to anyone. They do fantastic work. It's so easy now to set up an opening or closing. They arrive on-time, get right to work, and finish the job beautifully. They are always available to answer questions, and Matt is very, very accessible via phone or email.

From Our Website

Penguin Pools is a full-service swimming pool contractor and designer that believes in "Do it Once, Do it Right". Our goal has always been to provide the highest quality inground swimming pool possible to fit within a customer's budget. We make every effort to give you the type of pool that you want, not the one that someone is trying to "sell" you. We NEVER compromise on quality or ease of maintenance. Penguin Pools specializes in building and designing inground swimming pools. We build vinyl liner pools and fiberglass swimming pools, but our expertise doesn't stop there; we build world-class enhancements to your swimming pool by adding in spas, custom water features, custom lighting, and designer concrete patios.

In addition to constructing and building pools in Southeastern Wisconsin, Penguin Pools also does pool service work, repair and pool restoration. We have extensive experience and can handle the issue, no matter how small or large, to make your inground swimming pool or above ground pool look & function new again.

You are excited and anxious to get your swimming pool opened and running for the year, it takes time and is a complex process. Your pool opening doesn't have to be a hassle when you let a certified Penguin Pool technician take care of it. We will get your pool ready, verify the equipment operation and make sure it will be clear swimming for the rest of the season. A proper pool opening service with diagnostics on your swimming pool will make sure that you have an enjoyable swim season all year.

It is always a sad day when you realize that the pool swimming season is over, however that doesn't mean that your swimming pool services stop. A proper pool closing of your swimming pool is vital to the structure, plumbing, and equipment of your pool. A swimming pool closing not done correctly will cost you thousands of dollars to fix in the spring. Penguin Pools will winterize your pool, ensuring that your pool will be safe from the harsh kiss of Mother Nature in WI & MN. The process of closing a pool for the winter is long, detailed and time-consuming.

We sincerely wish that we could kill 100% of the pests for you, however, no one can kill all the ticks and mosquitoes in your backyard. A gust of wind can push mosquitoes from an adjacent yard onto your property and bite you prior to feeding on the treated vegetation. However, you'll find that with our Tick and Mosquito Control the presence of mosquitoes and ticks is enormously reduced. Our tick and mosquito control will kill up to 95% of the pests in your yard. Our solution is contact based, so any tick or mosquito we don't directly hit when we spray MUST land on a treated area.

Penguin Pools is not only an inground swimming pool contractor, but we also replace and renovate vinyl liner swimming pools throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. Installing a new inground vinyl liner in your pool can make it feel like an entirely new pool overnight. In most cases our standard package will be more than enough to repair and renovate vinyl liner pools; however, vinyl liner pools that are in particularly bad shape may require more than 1 bag of Vermiculite to repair the bottom. Or, you have to be in compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) drains or upgrade your pool with in-pool corner steps.

Remember, the more of your neighbors that have tick and mosquito control, the better everyone's backyard will be! Your Mosquito Spraying Cost is the start to a happy backyard. Do you want to make sure your wedding, birthday party, graduation, or any special event is pest free? Well, then a mosquito treatment is the way to go. We can help you out by spraying prior to the party to help eliminate the flying pest in your back yard. The size of the location plays a part in the cost, but typically, a 1-time heavy knockdown sprays start around $150 for the application.

Penguin Pools performs all types of swimming pool services on all types of swimming pools, inground or above ground. The scope of the project can be small and only takes a day to fix like a vinyl liner replacement, or it can be a full pool renovation on the swimming pool with additional outdoor living features added (outdoor grill, pool house, spa, landscaping.). Don't hesitate to call one of the professionals at Penguin Pools for any of your swimming pool services. We are pool contractors and builders who will provide you, free quotes and timely swimming pool services for any issue you might have.
