They needed to reattach the activator, which had been disconnected, I'm guessing from the pool closing from last year that had been disconnected. The nice thing about the company is that they tried to walk us through some repair procedure over the phone before the visit, so that we could possibly eliminate a visit or a fee, but in our case, of course we needed a repair. We appreciated the offer to...

Description of Work
We have solar panels on the roof of our house to heat our pool. We had our pool opened for the sub-season by our pool company on May 21st, and we noticed the solar heat was not working properly so we called the Solar Living Inc. company and they knew exactly what the problem was and fixed in within a half hour.

When I first called for service they returned my call promptly, and asked about the details of my problem and gave me instructions for what to do with the system until they could schedule a service visit. They were busy, and warned me it might take 3-4 weeks to get to me, but in fact Mike called me after about a week and scheduled a service call for the next day. Mike arrived as planned, calling m...

Ethan and Mike did a great job. They came to our house three times from start to finish. The first time for an estimate which they called and informed us that they were running a little late. It was only around 15 minutes but the phone call is much appreciated. The second time was to install the panels on the roof and run the plumbing. The showed up on time and were very professional with their wo...

Visited the house to measure and provided a written proposal soon after. We agreed on the price and contracted them to install the solar pool heater. Installation was completed in one day, as expected. They were very professional and treated my house as if it were their own. They were careful, polite and worked safely. They did a great job. The pool gets warm with no fuel costs. The thermostat all...

The work was performed with great efficiency and expertise. These gentlemen (Rich Bunte, Ethan and Mike) really know their stuff and are most personable, courteous, and fair. I have been using them also for my pool solar system for over 13 years and highly recommend them.
