A Perth mum has been left with a muddy hole in her backyard after she paid ‘dodgy builders’ to install a pool.

She handed over a $4000 deposit to Decorative Concreting Solutions after seeing an ad on Gumtree, 9 News reported.

The workers came soon after and ripped up the pavers in her backyard.

But what they left behind was a tiny, muddy and dangerous pool full of debris.

Ms Sanshall claims the workers have not been back and she has been unable to contact them.

‘We’ve got sand through the house, dogs not able to go out the back,’ she said. 

‘It’s not nice to deal with.’

Consumer Protection spokeswoman Lanie Chopping said the business is currently under investigation.

The business does not appear to be registered and its website has a fake address, she said.

Ms Sanshall has since been in contact with other people who claim they were ripped off by the builder.

‘I don’t know how someone can live with themselves, ripping people off like this,’ she said.
