POOL CON


BRAD BALAAM from ALL POOLS is a thief (to use a kind word). He came and gave my wife a quote as I was not at home and from the three quotes we received he was marginally cheaper but hey at least he took time to come and give the quote and promised that he would be there all of the time and would not let laborers work there on their own. So we paid him R 22 000 of the R 36 000 quoted.

He sent a guy called Ross around with laborers they seemingly picked up on the side of the road.

They only dug up my good pipes and broke them out and picked up the paving around the pool. They started putting paving back at a snail’s pace and brought 2 by 6m lengths of white plumbing pipe cut in half to fix pipes.

Then Ross started complaining that BRAD BALAAM doesn’t pay him or the labourers and he doesn’t have petrol money to come work again. I battled for more than a month to get BRAD BALAAM to come to my house when he came he promised me to be on site on the Monday and they will complete within a week and all materials have been bought.
That was the last I saw of him or my money. I have been to police station and the station commander phoned him and threatened to open theft case but he just laughed it off because he knows police can’t do anything.

I have spoken to a lawyer who told me I have to pay him a fee to summons BRAD BALAAM and then BRAD BALAAM might not have anything to attach and sell off to recover debt. So then I decided to let it go instead of spending another couple of thousand on a lawyer which I actually hate more than thieves...lol...they legally steel from you...lol...

So this happened in September to November in 2014. He actually did work for my boss who recommended him to me...can you believe that.... I don’t think anybody would get a sent back out of him but he should be stopped or at least people should be publicly warned about him and All Pools. He even told me his uncle is the president of pool builders association of South Africa...never checked up on that but it might also be another lie
