Richard Tyrrell, MISPE
Prior to entering the swimming pool industry, Richard was a director of a building company specialising in alterations, refurbishments and extensions. In 1970 he was approached by an existing customer to design and build a swimming pool. Following the success of this project, Richard discovered he had a passion for this work and continued to develop his knowledge under the expert guidance of his customer, who had himself been in the industry for decades prior to retirement and was known as an expert throughout the UK.
Since 1970 Richard has dedicated his working life to swimming pools and is a leading expert in every aspect of the industry. Over the years he has designed and built numerous pools, dealt with and resolved every imaginable problem and built up an enviable knowledge and customer base. It is testimony to Richard that even today RT Swimming Pools Limited continues to service and maintain many pools that he designed and built dating as far back as the 1980s.
By 2005 demand for the maintenance side of the business had increased to the extent that Richard decided to focus on service and maintenance, whilst still building the occasional pool when specifically requested. Having gained a reputation for first-class, professional customer service, the business continued to grow and on 1st May 2019 it transitioned to a private limited company operating out of a modern new unit in Holton Heath, Dorset.
Richard has been a member of the Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers (MISPE) since 1980. He continues to lead RT Swimming Pool Services as Managing Director and train the next generation of swimming pool engineers.
