Recommendations

Good Morning to all swimming pool owners: In March this year I requested quotes from a number of pool cleaning companies to clean my two Liner swimming pools to be ready for the summer, I had one or two suggestions including replacing the pools with fiberglass or concrete, two weeks later I arrived at the properties only to discover that both liners had been destroyed, please take this as a warning to always be resident at the properties when requesting any work to be done.
Happy Christmas & All the best for the New Year.
