We are frequently asked to install products, typically after having tirelessly worked with our customer to supply the right product. Sadly & all to often in lieu of those incorrectly installed or previously supplied by others. So once a degree of trust & rapport has been established its logical to ask the supplier for assistance with installation.
We can install in some Southern Counties such as Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Devon & Cornwall offer this service but what if we cannot help?

We always point customers to our regulatory body SPATA.
The Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association has many roles but to name the key ones beneficial for an end user I would say;

  • Members (pool companies) must meet minimum standards & criteria before joining
  • Set standards governing construction, installation & operation of pools, spa’s & steamrooms
  • Work is inspected prior to joining & periodically thereafter to ensure standards do not slip
  • Supply customer information packs & free factsheets including contract checksheets
  • Free technical advice
  • Water treatment training courses for members & non members
  • Dispute Resolution including stakeholder facility to safeguard contract monies for both parties
  • An easy to access list of approved members via their website

The list does go on & on so feel free to visit their website for further help & advice.

From inflatable loungers and chairs to water based games….

Goggles, snorkels, inflatables and toys – Summer is coming!!!!!!

As we are now rapidly heading for the Summer, it is time to look at what can be supplied to make your leisure time as enjoyable as possible.

From inflatable loungers and chairs to water based games, we sell a wide variety of goods to keep the whole family entertained.  Whether it be a fast passed game of mini water polo, a game of water volleyball or a more relaxed floating chair to while away the time reading, we have the solution.


If you want to just ‘chillax’ in your pool and catch the sun or read a book there are a few different options available.  If you prefer to stay sitting up to be able to read or listen to music, there is a choice of the Jumbo Club Chair, the Strawberry Pocket Lounger, Floating Chairs or large floating buoys or rings.  If you want to just lie in the sun you can on a traditional Lilo or floating mattress or choose from one of the Spring Float Cool Hawaii Mattress.  These are great as they fold away for easy storage or packing for travel.  While you are chilling out why not have drinks and snacks on hand with the Spa Bar whilst listening to your favourite tunes using the wireless IN POOL speaker, compatible with most digital music players, including i-Pods.

Flaot away your day....

To keep the children quiet and occupied, whether they are big or small, and I’m the biggest kid out there when it comes to being in the pool!, there are so many options available.  From the regular ride-on inflatables, Dolphins, Crocodiles etc. through water based games like mini polo, volleyball or basketball to the more lively water squirting toys, including the fabulous Surf Cannon, we have them all.  For those more active and adventurous there is the Aquatic Skate for use on or under water, great for competitions between friends!!

Fun for most everyone!

With a wide range of Zoggs goggles available we have a pair for everyone; from the youngest child just starting out on their swimming adventure, to the most experienced athlete for competition.  For the children, goggles come in a range of colours, for boys, girls and unisex.  Also available are a range of snorkels, both adult and junior sized.
For the adult swimmer in training, or learning to swim, there is also the in-line snorkel, often referred to as an ‘elephant’ snorkel.  This is a fantastic tool for adults who struggle to master the breathing during front crawl or breaststroke, as they can just concentrate on the stroke first.
