Aspects Pools was formed by a man who saw an opportunity to venture into new territory; this business grew & thrived through the 80s & 90’s. Sadly at the turn of the century the founder’s health deteriorated & the business was passed down to the son. Fairly standard story so far right? Well yes, but what happened next is not;

So the son ( Paul Woodhead, who is still a very active director in the company) decided one day whilst servicing a pool that his years of studying computer sciences could be put to use driving the business forward into the new frontier of the World Wide Web; you see typically the pool season in the UK ran Spring to late summer with work & income during the ‘off seasons’ being somewhat ‘variable’, leaving plenty of time one winter to build his own website.

Leap forward another 10 years and we have , one of THE leading online retailers to the pool owner in the UK, priding ourselves upon being renown for;

  • Finding new and innovative products
  • For giving real & expert advice
  • Being very competitively priced
  • Willing to track down the unusual; when others merely shrug their shoulders

Nowadays, Aspects pools have a whole team working flat out through the ‘off seasons’ to be ready for the ‘on seasons’, if we are honest there is no real ‘off season’ for the team at Aspects Swimming Pools anymore.

We thought it’d be insightful over coming weeks to look at the pool industry 30 years ago & compare it to today; To investigate what has changed & of course what has not; you might be surprised to find out how long some technology has been around.

Next time we catch up with the Multi-Cyclone pool filtration device, much like vacuum cleaners; not a lot changed for decades until a certain ‘British Genius’ rolled out his first bright yellow vacuum cleaner. Well this technology has had a huge impact in the pool market worldwide too… We will investigate why certain states in Australia have been able to change bylaws regarding water wastage during draughts thanks to this simple device.
