SA’s (Southern Aquatics) work had a high level of coordination between many trades, along with a very tight completion timeline, which they met with great professionalism. I would highly recommend SA (Southern Aquatics) to install the fountain and waterfall for your project. They will perform their activities with a great attention to detail to code and other trades.

I met Alex Powers with Southern Aquatics in late fall of 2004 when he and representatives of his company submitted a proposal to build the interactive water fountain for our park. The decision to engage the services of Southern Aquatics by the leadership of the Bicentennial Commission was unanimous. Mr. Powers demonstrated the highest professionalism to the Commission in his initial presentation as well as all demonstrations he provided during our meetings. Mr. Powers demonstrates the highest level of competency and ability to do a job on time and one of great quality. He has the highest integrity and has been a man of his word throughout the construction of the project. The fountain was built within 9 months and that face in of itself is a remarkable demonstration of the qualifications he possesses and the ability of his company. It is without reservation thatI recommend to you Alex Powers of Southern Aquatics.

It is in my opinion that Southern Aquatics not only has the highest level of expertise in the field of water feature installation, but also that they demonstrated the attributes I would apply to the most professional subcontractor’s I have worked with. I would highly recommend Southern Aquatics for any water feature project, regardless of size and scope. I urge any Owner/General Contractor/Construction Manager considering Southern Aquatics to contact me to discuss their performance in greater detail.

I had the pleasure of working with Southern Aquatics on the Georgetown Waterfront Park Project in Washington, DC. While assigned to this project I worked closely with Mr. Alex Powers and Mr. Jeff Doyle. Southern Aquatics, their office, and field staff, were a professional organization. Their knowledge of the project, installation procedures and problem solving were a credit to completing the key architectural feature of our project. Several changes were made to our fountain including location and size changes of the equipment vault. Southern Aquatics was always available and offered solutions to these challenges. Southern Aquatics conducted themselves in a professional manner at all times and were dedicated and conscientious team member. They clearly contributed to the success of the project. I would look forward to working with Southern Aquatics. If you have any questions please call me.
