Dear Jean-Michel,

Thank you for the gorgeous swimming pool. Your team did a magnificent job! You delivered on time and completed the job as scheduled. You led confident resolution to any problems and you followed up on the small details for our satisfaction. We will have many years of enjoyment. We offer our highest recommendation and are very grateful for your advice and assistance.

Robin & Mark McCabe


Jean Michel,

I wanted to acknowledge the outstanding service you and your team provided in the installation of our pool in the spring of 2012.

From the initial meeting where you provided us excellent advice, options and suggestions right through to the day that you called me to say “John your pool is ready”, the experience was outstanding!

The turnkey service you provided of permitting, installation, landscaping and the personal touch of having you, the owner, being accessible any time we had questions made the experience a stress free project. I was never concerned about the timeliness of the project as the work activities were monitored and progressed smoothly and in an organized fashion.

I have and will continue to recommend your company and I often highlight that what you bring is a turnkey solution that provides end to end service. No need for clients to call subcontractors, worry about permits and how to fill the pool – it’s a one stop shop with you and your team.

We are proud of our new back yard oasis you helped us build. All of our relatives and friends have enjoyed and are impressed with the final product.

Thank you.
John Manconi


JMD Pools has met all my expectations and then some! Not only do I love my unique and modern looking pool but the crew was amazing. My pool was installed in June 2013 and they were great to work with; very efficient and knowledgeable. They went over and above in many ways, from installation to service as well. They showed me how everything works and explained everything along the way. JM is very friendly, answering my many questions and always made sure I was completely happy. Would highly recommend JMD Pools and I can’t wait to continue showing off my awesome pool! Thanks guys!

After much deliberation and research we decided to install a semi-inground Radiant pool and choose JMD Pools to do the installation.

Jean Michel met with us and patiently answered all our questions which helped us make the decision for a semi-inground pool versus an inground pool.

The work crew were amazing. They knew their stuff and patiently answered all our questions as they went along. What a pleasant group of fellows to work with.

We made some changes once we got started and have had a few hiccups along the way, but the crew and Jean Michel were flexible and worked with us to meet our goals.

They are also very attentive with respect to follow-up visits for the last minute details that invariably need to be addressed. I particularly like the fact that I know Jean Michel will always personally answer my call, and if I have to leave a message he always calls back within hours.

We love our pool and we couldn’t be happier!

We purchased a large model home in 2010 and had great plans in developing our backyard. First to be installed was a wooden fence which truly outlined the size of our property. We also knew we wanted to put in a pool and subsequently, many contractors came over and gave us their two cents worth in installing an in-ground pool and all of the associated costs which were HUGE!

I then heard about Club Piscine and their pool selections and saw there was a product called a semi-in-ground pool system. I was then introduced to Jean Michel and JMD Pools. JM then came over to our house and we scoped out a very do-able sized semi above ground 13 X 25. And for the price of the pool, the installation, the pump and everything else, I couldn’t believe my good fortune in getting what we all wanted and at an amazing price that was well within our budget.

I then contracted with a landscaping company who drew up the blueprints, and then Jean Michel had his crew come in. Within 48 hours, our pool was installed exactly according to the blueprint specs and we were swimming in that pool within days. Jean Michel even contracts out with the same electricians he’s been dealing with over the years which ensures the pump and filter salt water system gets installed right the first time. That was’a huge feature and benefit to me.

The crew knew exactly what to do and never complained about the heat (very hot summer) or anything. They were all pros and worked together as a great team. Within 4-5 weeks, our backyard was transformed from barren land into a backyard oasis built around the pool. As the pictures show, one can see the beauty of the pool, the surrounding deck, the gazebo and shrubs and capture the entire backyard experience and just exactly how everything came together.

It all started with the pool design, selection and installation. I had many contractors give me their version of how our backyard should look… but it was Jean Michel’s professional and down to earth input, suggestions and realistic opinions that made me decide to choose him and his company over everyone else. He just made so much common sense and was not trying to sell me something I really didn’t need. He did talk me into going a little larger than what I initially asked about, and I am so happy I listened to his suggestions.

My family and friends and I absolutely LOVE our pool and the backyard effect we have created. We are the envy of the neighborhood and we no longer have any urges for cottage life when we simply walk a few steps into our backyard paradise. Thank you Jean Michel. Feel free to have any prospective customers contact me for my opinion. I’d be more than happy to share with them our experiences in dealing with you. Thank you once again for a job well done!

Best regards,
Dave Van Dusen


We had our pool an Aqua Bois Semi Inground 10 x 22 purchased and installed by Jean Michel and his crew in May of 2013. The quality of the installation and the service we received from Jean Michel was impeccable The time line with Installation of the Pool, the clean up afterwards was outstanding. The entire system was up and running in no time. I cannot say enough of the quality and the service that we received from Jean Michel. We also required the fencing around our Pool and Jean Michel arranged everything that was required in order to have the fence installed in a very timely manner..We also required some landscaping for our pool and Jean Michel also had this arranged for us.

The service during and after the Pool installation was super and the Crew that he has working for him is very professional and courteous.

I would recommend anyone who is in the marked for any type of pool to contact Jean Michel. They will not be disappointed you and you and you will be very satisfied with the level of service that he does provide.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to attest to the superb service and of our immense satisfaction of the JMD pool installation team.

An outstanding team lead by Mr. Deschamps, he quickly oriented us towards the best product to meet our needs and budget.  Very  customer oriented, Mr. Deschamps, through his vast experience and solid professional attributes, quickly gained our confidence and provided us with the best advice and tips for acquiring our salt system in ground pool back in the Fall of 2013.

We also knew we had made the right choice the first day his dedicated and polite crew showed up in our yard. Their trade experience, obvious competence and work ethics transpired at every stage of the building process. They particularly impressed us with their hard work, timeliness and cleanliness. It was simply refreshing to have to deal with such a professional team. The same courteous and competent demeanor was also demonstrated by all highly qualified sub-contractors (electrician, natural gas connection and landscaping) supporting the JMD team.

All and all, we have been extremely satisfied with our experience with JMD pool installation team. We had a great experience throughout the full process and we would not hesitate a moment to recommend JMD to any future customer.

As a result of this great experience we know that come the summer 2014 we will enjoy every single minute of our recently installed  salt water in ground pool.

We had our pool installed by JMD pools in October 2011 and are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. JMD pool staff were very professional and courteous. The pool was installed in a timely manner and the crew workers were terrific and kept us informed on what they were doing. The crew cleaned up their tools etc during the the pool installation and were a very polite and informative.

Our overall experience was fantastic. Our pool is being enjoyed by our family and friends. Back yard BBQ’s all summer long by the pool, you can’t beat that.

Thank you JMD Pools for your wonderful design and your and courteous service.

We had a pool installed by JMD pools in September of 2009. They started the job within a few days of when they estimated it would get going and finished right on time. Everything was explained in detail to us before the job started and the crew followed through almost exactly how we expected. JM helped us design a custom size pool to fit our needs. He also helped us with the fencing around the property. In fact many of the neighbours also chose to use the same fencing from JMD. When the job was completed they cleaned up the property and sodded the grass where the bobcat drove through. There were no “surprise” costs either, what we were quoted was what we paid. I would and have recommended JMD pools to any of my friends or associates.

When we began looking for a company to install an in-ground pool, we were referred to JMD Pools by a number of colleagues. We hadn’t previously owned a pool, and when Jean-Michel first came to our home to meet with us in Fall 2012, we were armed with a lot of ideas and even more questions. He really listened to our concerns and provided us with clear answers and invaluable advice drawn from many years of experience. We knew from our initial meeting with Jean-Michel that he could make our vision a reality.
Beginning with the original site measurement, JMD Pools demonstrated consistent effort and professionalism. Their pool construction foreman, Mario, led his crew by example.
He was a hands-on project manager who even showed up alone on Sundays to make up for any time lost during the week due to heavy rain.
As we’d just purchased a home in a new sub-division, we also had fencing and landscaping needs. JMD Pools have hard-working, dedicated crews that specialize in both areas and with Jean-Michel’s leadership, all of the work was co-ordinated to ensure that the entire job would be completed at the same time.
While our neighbours followed the progress of our property’s transformation, they were very impressed by the quality workmanship of George’s fencing crew and within no time, five of our adjoining neighbours also had their yards fenced by JMD Pools.
Jason’s landscaping team did an absolutely beautiful job. He worked closely with us on the design of our interlock patio and walkway and generously offered his welcomed expertise.
Spring 2013 seemed like one day of rain after another, yet in spite of Mother Nature’s challenges, the project was completed on time. Mario, George and Jason were very personable and always ready to address any issue. They and their respective crews worked together seamlessly.
Simply put, JMD Pools took on our project with confidence and they delivered.
Jean-Michel and his team have created a backyard oasis that our family and friends will enjoy for years to come.

We initiated a major renovation in 2011 and 2012. This included adding a new kitchen to the house, a pool and hard grade landscaping. Of all the professionals we worked with including the architect, engineers, electricians, plumbers etc., our only experience where the level of professionalism was guaranteed and consistently high was when we worked with Jean Michel and his team. They ensured we were happy with the pool design, manoeuvred their implementation schedule to meet our timeline and continue to this day to provide superb after care service.

We can tell you that we were amazed at the crew’s skill level during pool installation. The precision for digging the hole, and pouring the concrete, putting the lining in to filling the pool was extremely well done and the whole process was completed without a hitch! We can’t give a higher recommendation that we do to JM and his team. Looking forward to another wonderful year in our pool.

It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for JMD Pools Inc. to reflect on their excellent work and service.

Back in 2005 we had JMD Pools build us a customized pool and could not have been more delighted with the aesthetics and functionality of the completed project. The work which included fencing was completed on time and to the specifications that we requested.

Our experience and service was so great that when we moved into our new home in 2012, we called again on Jean-Michel and his team from JMD Pools Inc. We required another customized pool in which Jean-Michel made suggestions on the shape and size for our yard. Which turned out better then we could have imagined. This time around we had JMD Pools handle all levels of the installation from permits, electrical / inspections, to the fencing and landscaping. We were more than pleased with the results. His crew were here when he said they would be (unless weather issues) and were very professional and respectful of our property and the neighbours property. Always cleaning and putting tools and equipment away when they were finished for the day.

JMD Pools has provided us with exceptional service and are very dependable whenever we had questions or problems. They have been prompt in returning calls and have provided quality work each and every time.

We have no hesitation in recommending the services of JMD Pools Inc. and we have and will definitely continue to have our pool serviced by them.

Great Big Thank you to JMD Pools and Crew.

To JMD Pools:

I am writing this to let you know that my family and I are more than happy we made the decision to get our pool from JMD.

From the care taken not to interfere with our existing plants and trees to the monitoring of the workaround for our septic system.
The installation of the fencing and pool pump equipment was done clean and fit right in with the back yard.

It was a fabulous job all around, on time, with no “surprises”.

I congratulate you on your crews and their professionalism.

My husband and I moved to Westboro in 1997, and shortly thereafter decided to install a swimming pool to enjoy with our three children.  After extensive research, we decided to hire Jean Michel Deschamps for the job.  From start to finish, the whole process was exciting and rewarding and we ended up with a beautiful pool!  Having 3 small children as well as a business to run, we were not left with much time to deal with all of the details required, including obtaining permits etc.  However, JM took care of all of this for us and our pool was installed on time and stress free.

In  2009, we decided to sell our beautiful home, and the pool was definitely an excellent selling feature. We moved to the Byward Market into a two storey condominium, making a pool impossible.  However,  having a large roof terrace, we decided to attempt having a hot tub installed.  JM again came to our aid coming up with the ingenious idea to have the hot tub lifted to the roof by crane.  As crazy as this sounds, it occurred without a hitch.  He arranged for all of the permits again, and even arranged to have the street closed briefly to allow for the operation of the crane.  It was quite the site to see and we enjoyed that hot tub immensely.  When we offered our condominium up for sale a few years later, prospective buyers were pleasantly surprised to see the rooftop hot tub.

In 2011 we decided to make the move back to a family home.  We bought a home at Dows Lake and decided to again install a pool.  This proved to be the most problematic project yet as our house is situated many feet from street level with a driveway and garage entrance below.  We were not at all sure that equipment could access the back yard, or that a pool would even fit nicely in the yard.  Yet again, JM came up with great ideas, handled all of the paperwork, and we have the back yard of our dreams.  Perhaps this time we will stay put, however if we do move again and choose to install yet another pool, we definitely know who to call!!!

Thanks JM!

“JMD Pools installed our Radiant semi-inground pool in the spring of 2013. Prior to the installation, Jean Michel provided us with all the information we needed to make an informed decision. The installation by the competent and knowledgeable crew only added to the positive experience. Within a couple days of the start of installation, we were enjoying our beautiful pool. The crew was also great for opening and closing the pool, and we will continue to have them perform this service. We are very happy with our decision to have chosen JMD Pools for this project. Thank you JMD Pools for completing our backyard oasis.”
