POOL DIVING SOLUTIONS GO FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH Since opening in 2011 the objective of Stockport based Pool Diving Solutions has been to offer underwater swimming pool repairs and maintenance at competitive prices, without sacrificing excellent quality workmanship. The company are confident that they have executed that objective thus far and this is reflected in the relationships they have built and maintained with councils, management companies, schools, universities and contractors across the UK over this relatively short period.

Not complacent in their achievements

to date, the company continues to learn and devise new cost effective and durable methods to approach underwater repairs. Although consisting of just a few members, the experience and skills of the Pool Diving Solutions team enables them to complete more complex projects. Recently, a contract required the company’s expertise in underwater drilling to improve the method currently used to change a boom, from an air system to a hydraulic ram system. Pool Diving Solutions were able to complete the entire installation underwater using hydraulic tools.

Some of their other larger projects include a 45 square metre underwater tiling project completed at 1escape health club in Dublin plus a 600 square metre underwater grouting assignment completed at Grand Central swimming pool in Stockport.
