Default Off topic - pool repair?

Hey guys. I figured I'd ask here, since I'd prefer to support friends of friends.

Looking for a pool repair company/person. Something with the backflush valve just broke (haven't gone outside to look at it, husband just came in to report) so we need that replaced. This'll be the first time we've had to do repairs not under the home warranty, and most of the companies we dealt with previous were... not someone we'd call back. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Related - if anyone knows anyone who does pool resurfacing, send me their info, too. Our 30 year old pool is in need of some serious TLC. We haven't been able to handle it before now due to money (omg pool = money sink) but are looking to get quotes. It needs to be someone seriously capable because I suspect there will be more to it than just slapping down some pebble-tec.

We just had our pool resurfaced a few months ago, We used "superior pool plastering", I have to ask my wife for their contact info if you want it, But we got quotes from 4 or 5 different places, The person who came to give us the quote was very helpful (more then the others) and came in with the best price (and got more) as we did a pebble sheen with aqua glass bead mixed in

Steve-pool guy- # 602-999-8931 * I know him personally and he is a very honest and trustworthy person. He can replace backwash valve no problem and can give you recommendations for who can re-surface pool. I have pebble tec and I heard its easier to fix than one would think. Lastly, this repair isn't too costly so dont fret. If I find my receipt I can let you know costs.

You guys are great. Damn I'm glad I bought a Subaru.

Evil Imports - contact info would be great. What was the approximate cost of the resurfacing, if you don't mind me asking? We've got a 20k gallon play pool, for comparison...

DerickRyoung - I'll take your info on costs, if you can dig up that receipt. When I call Steve, should I tell him you referred me? Where-ish is he located? We're near 101/60. Oh, and we don't have pebble-tec yet. We have the original plaster that wasn't well maintained. It just comes up in chunks and makes it super difficult to keep the water chemistry right.
