Wave Tec Pools — Fraud contract!
I was sold a Wave-Tech Pool (32K) + financing for $4K in a retaining wall to support the pool. I paid $2K cash down, for a total expenditure of $34K. I have since found blogs and internet postings of over 43 complaints with the Attorney General's office, 84 unresolved complaints with the BBB. When I first looked into the company, the standing with the BBB was good, unless you yahoo-search "disaster" and "law suit" and Wave Tec Pools you are unable to discover the hundreds and hundreds of people who have been destroyed from Wave Tec business practices. I don't understand why they are still allowed to be in business.
Here is my story - these are only the highlights, the rest of the "pain" and frustration over the last 4 months is too lengthily to compile.
The first contractor did the following:
A. Disregarded city approved permit specs, refused to dig in area that was permitted then Dug the pool in the wrong area, placed walls up unleveled which created an "above ground" pool. This placement was not permitted and the entire pool bracing had to be dismounted, leaving a 12' x 20' hole in the center of my yard with a mountain of dirt behind it, over 16' tall.
B. Erroneous and Unnecessary Trench: The 12ft long, 4 ft deep trench along the side of my home -- beginning at the main juncture of my sprinkler system pipes in the back yard, when only six inches was necessary. They plowed through the red flag markers that indicated where the electrical system and sprinkler system was.
I have to attend an "Architectural Board Committee Review" from my homeowners association and face fines up to $50+ monthly until this is resolved.
C. Next Contractor came, WaveTec agreed to have this new contractor extract the dirt from the yard from first dig and haul away, I agreed to the comprise to dig then deeper and put more money into a retaining wall.
D. Contractors took the dirt to be hauled away and instead, put the dirt back into the first dig, leaving now a large mound in the original hole.
E. Contractors dug the second hole, but not deep enough and very very very unleveled, but still placed pool wall bracing. contractors requested the second "check" from Superior funding, turned into WaveTech. The contractors then abandoned work and the site.
F. Contractors cannot return phone calls because they say they have a "problem" with WaveTec, compensation for work that is due to them, etc. etc. etc.. They have walked off the job and will not return.
G. WaveTec refuses all phone calls and will no longer reply to emails.
H. Superior Funding, of which i found out is owned by the same person that owns WaveTec, Curtis Batts, calls frequently for monthly payments of which I have sent, but they cannot seem to find.
I. I am writing to determine if there is a class-action law suit, to get my own attorney to pursue in full or to have some kind of intervention into this situation.
