or all swimming pools, whether in a commercial or domestic setting, the time will eventually come when a facelift or a bit of cosmetic surgery is needed, after all nobody wants to swim in a pool that has clearly seen better days and if particularly bad, can even pose a risk to swimmers.

Repairs and refurbishments can and do come about for a variety of reasons. It may be a case of a leaking pool or tiles that have come loose from wear and tear or even perhaps a pool that has been left unused and fallen into disrepair having spent a couple of summers not being used. Whatever the reason, more often than not the truth is getting a pool up and looking good and ready for use again may not cost that much and for commercial operators, it’s more than likely essential as much needed revenue will be lost. So this issue we look at the specialist repair companies that tackle more demanding repairs plus some of the repair products

that are available to help swimming pools get back into use again.


SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL FOR TILING & POOL PROJECTS With a growing professional reputation within the industry for a high standard of workmanship, Tiling & Pool Projects (UK) Ltd carry out works all over the UK and Ireland for many local authorities, hotel groups, health and fitness clubs, private schools, colleges and individual private clients. The company specialise in swimming pool repair works and carry out projects that include full retiles, repairs, re-grouting to areas using cement based and epoxy materials, expansion joints and sika products. They have also recently become an applicator of Aquabright/Ecofinish offering an alternative to tiling or marblite pool finishes. It is a system brought over from the USA and is a thermal powder coat finish, which is seamless and comes with a ten year guarantee. Theirs is a small team who carry out


a personal professional standard to all the works and all staff appreciate the importance of good communications throughout the initial site visit and meeting and all through the contract, should they be successful in being appointed.


One of the unique aspects of the company is that clients who have used them always come back. This is because they take great pride in always turning up on time, working very hard, (at weekends and nights if necessary), always use well established quality products and finish a job to a very high standard. The company are so proud of the service they provide that they offer references to prospective clients who can then listen to their comments rather than those of the company. “We may not be the cheapest on the market, but as the saying goes you get what you pay for and that includes peace of mind knowing a good job will be done,” says Tony Crank Managing Director of the company.
