Specialist Leak Investigation Services

Every swimming pool or spa is likely to start leaking at some point in its life. An un-repaired leak can result in hundreds of gallons of water lost per day. In addition to the replacement cost of the water, leaks in your pool will increase chemical demands, and may lead to more serious problems.



Liner Replacement                                                       Price on consultation

A new liner may be required to resolve leaks or other problems with your existing liner, or you may simply wish to refresh the look of your pool without a full refurbishment. Liners are made to fit your pool exactly and are available in a wide range of patterns. Please see sample below.




Filter Media Change

Filter media is a sharp and jagged material used in swimming pool filters to trap any unwanted particles and substances within the water. Over time, the filter media rounds off and becomes less effective, preventing some of the particles and bacteria from being removed. It is therefore recommended to change your media at the advised regular intervals depending on media type, which is 3-5 years for sand and 7-9 years for AFM, depending on filter use.


Sand change includes :       From £150 + VAT (depends on filter size)



Removal of sand from the filter

Checking of internal workings of the filter
