After a routine weekly pool maintenance service call, A Affordable called and informed me that my pool pump needed repair. Before agreeing to have them perform the work, I asked what the worst-case scenario would be. I was assured that the most it would cost, and only if I needed a new pump replacement, would be $700. Based solely on their worst-case assurance, I agreed to hire them for the repair. After the repairman arrived, he called to inform me that my pump was ""seized"" and I needed a complete new pump. He said this will cost me $1,250.
