I’ve been very unlucky with my pool and am now on my 3rd leak.

I wasn’t living there and someone went in to change all the pipework but they did an appalling job which caused just as many problems. I made the mistake of not being there when the work was being done.

Since then it’s all been changed again to rigid hi grade pipe on two different occasions. I thought this was sorted. 

Unfortunately it is leaking again from the bottom drain somewhere where it was totally dug up and replaced on one of the two occasions. So here we go again!

The person who replaced the pipe work the second time is now ill and cannot come back to sort so I need someone well recommended who can come and pressure test and potentially find the leak. I have no doubt that the imprinted concrete will have to be dug up again.

Apparently it’s being topped up every two days so is no doubt still costing me a fortune as being like this for two months.

Has anyone got any recommendations who doesn’t take the “Michael”?

Can’t believe how unlucky I’ve been with this pool. Feel like filling it in!!

Regards to all.

Hi have you spoken to John at Johns Pool Care? Johns shop is at 54 Parque Pisuerga which is more or less opposite Cavernita in grey area 634347093. John has been established for many years and has a excellent reputation.

No I haven’t yet but I know where they are as often go to the Mahal curry house! 

To be honest they are on my short list.

Thank you for replying

No problem. Nice curry at Mahal. Move John to the top of your short list 😊. Seriously though I hope you manage to get it all sorted.

I second what Cathy says; John is definitely the best man to do the job. The only problem you might find is that he's so good, he's very busy - all you can do is ask him.

Thank you both.....

I will see if I can book him in at the beginning of October or something.

It’s been a nightmare to be honest. Just when everything is going to plan!

Definitely John's Professional Pool Care!

He will do a good job for a fair price. He knows I'll have his guts for garters if I recommend him and he doesn't!!
