"Good day Max
I just want to say thank you for the lovely pool! The pool exceeded our expectations and we are thoroughly enjoying our new pool. It was a pleasure doing business with you and will definitely refer anyone to your company. Louis might still be phoning you for some maintenance tips but I just wanted to take the opportunity and thank you for the professional service and the beautiful pool. "
"Hi Max, I trust you are well. I would like to take my hat off once again, and thank you for the professional way you approached our situation regarding the marks in our pool. I am not sure if you will be handing over your business to someone when you decide it is time to retire, but want to add that your old man taught you well and that whoever takes over takes the same kind of ethicalness and pride with them. I would like to apologize for being so naïve to compare your quality of work with some of those in the market…… it is proven, it is worlds apart, SA Gunite’s qualities are really world class! I trust and hope you have an awesome growing business going forward and I am sure that I will engage again when I buy and expand in the near future. Ps - A person cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances. If there is any further information or details needed please do not hesitate to contact me as per my details below. I look forward to hearing from you soon and assuring you of my best attention at all times."

"Max, I know that we had a couple of problems and delays along the way, but I want to record my thanks and appreciation for a fabulous pool - it is exactly what we wanted and I am enjoying being able to really swim. Please convey this to your supervisors and staff. I will send you another picture once we have finished the garden."

"Hi Amanda, attached is the proof of payment made today. The pool is really lovely, and has proved to be a pleasure already. Many thanks to Max and your team, working with them was such a pleasure and a complete contrast to the dealings I had with PoolCraft."
"Dear Max, I write this note in appreciation of the installation of my swimming pool at the above mentioned address. Your committment to customer service goes beyond satisfaction, acctually par excellence. Your punctuality not only from yourself, but your entire staff deserves utmost compliments. The attitude of the entire staff at SA Gunite Pools also deserves compliments. Max, on behalf of myself and my family, I take this opportunity in wishing you and your family as well as your entire staff a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Good Luck for 2003, and keep up the good work."
"Dear Max, Firstly we have been very impressed with the service, quality, workmanship plus professionalism of SA Gunite in the guniting of our pool and therefore wish you to quote on completing the entire job. We have obviously tried to make something unique around the pool area and are prepared to pay extra for this however, I do have a budget that I estimated would cover this. If my design is too elaborate or expensive (which I believe it is not), then maybe I will have to re-design - but anyway, let us see how costs pan out. I look forward to your quote."

"Dear Max, I have been meaning to write and tell you how happy we are with our new swimming pool. It is a thing of beauty and has turned out exactly the way I visualized it and how you and I planned it when we first started out. I remember the first day you arrived at our house in order to quote on a new pool. Up until then I had obtained one other quote from another pool construction company. After you left, I said to my wife that irrespective of what your price would be, I felt quite certain that you were the man for the job. You were proud of your product and your own ability to deliver that product. And Max, you did not disappoint. Needless to say we did not look any further for another quote. I remember you saying that you worked to a standard and not to a price. How true that is and is also true of the swimming pool you built. It is beautiful, well built and will most certainly add value to the quality of our lives and to our property. Your men worked well with the minimum of mess and disruption and a very big thank you must go to them. Oom Phillip is also a most delightful man and I grew to enjoy and appreciate him with every passing day of construction. Please convey my fond regards to him. You are someone I can relate to and thus am very sincere when I offer my gratitude and appreciation for a job exceptionally well done. I would be happy to recommend SA Gunite Pools and Max van den Bergh to anyone seeking a quality built swimming pool. Thank you very much for all you did."
"We are absolutely delighted with our new pool. Thanks for the superb work."

"Hi Amanda, 08H00 on Saturday will be perfect and I have noticed the guys have been vacuuming. I really do appreciate that as it was a nice surprise especially with all the dust from the alterations at the moment. Amanda I would also just like to thank you personally for your infinite patience with all my phone calls and your help along the way. It has been such a pleasure dealing with you. I wish you and Max all the best for all your future endeavors. I will not hesitate to refer you to any of my people who are looking for anything, pool related in the future."
