Spring 2024

Our “Pool Doctor”, Richard looks back to 1970 when his love affair with pools first started and reflects on the principles that remain today, some 54 years later, despite technological advancements. Elsewhere we have provided thoughts on the activities that should be considered during the Spring, ideas on pool covers and our support for the Willow Foundation. Finally, Ian, who joined us last Spring, provides an insight into his life and love of swimming pools.

We have highlighted the benefits of essential ongoing maintenance to your pool and equipment, including changing the sand in your filter, re-grouting your pool and installing a UV Quantum unit. We conducted a customer “case study” where these improvements were made, analysing chemical usage on a before and after basis. As you will see the cost savings were incredible. Our “Pool Doctor”, Richard shares yet another amusing story from his 52 plus years in the pools industry.
