Our house is right on the beach and the best thing about the pool is that we actually feel like we're in the ocean. Pools by Murphy suggested a color that matches the ocean and they set the pool in a way that makes you feel like you're floating in the pool and the ocean. They did a fabulous job designing it and building it. Pools by Murphy is a tight-knit family organization and we knew that if anything were to go astray that they would be here for us. Everybody comes out and looks at it and says, "Wow! I love it! It's beautiful!" We say, "We love it too!"

There's no question that having Pools by Murphy do the job made my life much easier. Since we've had the pool the best thing about it is having pool parties and family gatherings. It's made our house much more user friendly for those types of functions. I just referred someone to Pools by Murphy last week.

After comparing pool builders, Murphy seemed to have the best combination and value for the price, which was what we were looking for. They were very hands on and provided a lot of feedback and suggestions for us that fit into the vision that we were looking for. One of the good things about Murphy & Sons is that they kept us informed of when people would be coming out. The crews worked very diligently and always left the site in good condition. It was just a very pleasant experience and I think the end result here is the best referral they can get. We've actually referred several of our neighbors to Murphy & Sons and the pool kind of speaks for itself.

I had an idea for the design concept but I didn't know how to put it on paper. I called Pools by Murphy and they sat down with me and spent a lot of time talking about what we needed to do and how to go about it. I enjoyed working with Rich because he helped bring our ideas to reality. If you give Pools by Murphy a call and listen to what they have to say, you'll see that they're professionals and they'll lead you down the right track. I would absolutely refer other people to Pools by Murphy. I was very impressed with the fact that they're a family-owned business and how personal each step of the process was. I would choose Pools by Murphy to build another pool for me anytime. They did a fantastic job.

I connected with Rich and Pat Murphy with Murphy Pools and the decision was made in less than 24 hours with the contract signed to put in a new pool. As skeptical as I was with any pool company, they did a magnificent job. The best thing about the pool is the way it was laid out as part of the backyard. It completed our yard. I would choose Pools by Murphy without missing a heartbeat. They've lived up to every part of the contract, they explained everything as they went through it, they worked with you if you had concerns and they were there like Johnny on the Spot to talk you through it.


Jeff & Sue Savelle


Pools by Murphy's folks came by and we liked their designs and the gunite concept so we were sold. We've had friends and family who have pools with all sorts of problems; we know we're never going to have these issues. When we have people over they all say they love the way the gunite pool looks and the way things were constructed. Maintenance is a breeze and we have enjoyed our summer season. If we had to do it all over again we would choose Pools by Murphy.


Mark & Melissa Sarni


The whole process went very, very smoothly. Pools by Murphy came right in when we asked them to and put the pool in. It was done right on time and ready for the summer. If we had to do it all over again we'd absolutely use Pools by Murphy. The workers who put in the pool did a terrific job and were nice and professional. We were very happy with our sales person and the design. We love our pool. We were just thrilled with the whole process and we have referred other people to Pools by Murphy.


Cathy McGrady


We are at the pool constantly with friends and family. It's something that has changed our summers. It has exceeded everyone's expectations. It allows us to come home, get into the pool and have an instant vacation. The comments we've received about the pool include what a beautiful gunite pool it is and how great the deck is. People have even said it feels like it's a resort in our backyard, which was our goal from the beginning. This has gone from just being a pool to a real renovation of the outside of our home.


Brice & Amy McLaughlin


When we met with our designer and finally decided to go with Murphy Pools, he was instrumental in helping us visualize what our pool would be like in our backyard. He informed us about setbacks and where the pool would fit in our yard and he knew all the current town codes. He considered our lifestyle and immediately knew the best way the pool would fit in with our family. People think it's a lot of work keeping a pool going, but we found it's really been very simple and low maintenance. This was one of the best investment decisions we made to create a place for family fun and relaxation. It brings us together and it gives us time to spend with each other as a group.


Howard & Bonnie Burke


If I had to do it all over again I'd definitely choose Pools by Murphy. They were really incredible to work with. The finished product is just phenomenal and is superior to anyone else's pool that we've seen, and we scoped out a lot of different companies before choosing them. The quality beats out any other pool company in this area that I'm aware of and you can't beat the cost of this type of quality pool. We have referred Pools by Murphy to our friends and will continue to do so.


Howard & Janet Zipperstein


"Rich was amazing throughout the entire process of building our in-ground pool. Their customer service is amazing and very easy to work with. I plan on using their service for maintaining my pool each to close/open/clean. Highly recommend Murphy's Pools."

"Pools by Murphy are the best Gunite pool builder in the world. I have bought several pools over the years from them and each one has been great. I have never had a crack on any of my pools and never had to re-plaster one yet. The first pool I got from them still has the original plaster that is 40+ years old and I am pleased to say that it still looks like new. Again they are the best pool builder in the world. And they were outstanding and efficient. THANK YOU KEVIN AND RICHARD (and crew) FOR BUILDING THE POOL OF MY DREAMS AND BEING SO NICE!"




Timothy Ackerman

"We would like to thank you for your assistance with the broken pump motor. We are over the moon that we can barely hear the new one! I can't thank you enough. Pools by Murphy is great and has always been a family to us. THANK YOU!!!"



I'm extremely pleased with your work. You know I referred my sister and brother-in-law (and was referred to you by neighbors). So, thanks for helping us turn our backyard into a place that also makes us feel like we're at a resort vacation! It's so relaxing to sit outside by the pool during the day and listen to the waterfall. And, at night we enjoy sitting in the spa and watching the color of the pool change. I can't wait until we open it again this season!


Joan Conlan

Once again a great job. Your crew was very patient and kind in explaining what was happening and what I had to do. I look forward to being one of the first pools open in the Spring. My daughter Lindsay and I swam up until the closing! Thanks again for a great swimming season and for all your quality work and professionalism.

"We have recommended Murphy Pools to a friend and my sister has also used them. They were great. The workers were all very nice and courteous and did what they were supposed to do at each step of the process. If they weren’t good, I would never have referred them."


Allison Gallagi / Fairfield, CT

"I just wanted to let you know exactly how pleased I am with the progress of my pool, but more importantly with the professionalism that your construction crews have showed me. From the excavation team that dug my hole, to the rebar crew, plumbing crew, gunite crew, tile crew, and the decking crew, you should be very proud of the men you have working for you. Not only do they know their jobs and what has to be done, but also they do their jobs as if they were building their own pool and not a complete stranger’s pool. They complete their jobs in a timely manner and clean up so you wouldn’t even know they were there. The gunite crew took the time to cover my gazebo and wooden deck with plastic so as not to get any gunite or cool deck were it didn’t belong. I look forward to enjoying my pool for years to come. Please thank all your men for the great job."


George Blees / Oxford, CT

Jay’s design was sensitive and great and from there you all made it happen. Thank you!"


Joanne Santiago

"We were very impressed with your desigenr. He was on time and he explained everything in detail. He took measurements of our property, plotted the pool, listened to what we wanted and didn’t want, and never tried to “push” anything on us. The excavation crew began as promised and were a pleasure to deal with. They were always very professional, did excellent work, and took pride in what they did. It was very impressive to see such superior workers. We are so pleased with the installation of the pool by your company and would be happy to recommend you to other potential customers"
