NIVEKO Pool Provides Hasslefree Pool Hall Installation
Just how straightforward the beautiful NIVEKO one-piece pool is to install was recently demonstrated in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire when Paul Mortimer decided to add an impressive pool hall extension to his house. “The first thing that attracted me to a one-piece pool was cost,” said Paul. “We had been quoted over £125,000 to have a concrete pool installed, which took the pool out of our reach. I then started to look at what was available as an alternative to concrete. “I contacted AG Budget Pools & Spas of Stourport-on-Severn who were extremely helpful in pointing me in the right direction and they suggested a NIVEKO one-piece pool might be suitable for me. After some online research I thought this would be the ideal solution.” Paul placed an order for a 8m x 3.7m x 1.5m blue shell NIVEKO complete with light blue steps with Badu Jet Primavera counter-current unit and PVC white slatted cover in pit solution. Paul said: “The NIVEKO pool arrived on the back of a lorry which was positioned outside the house. The pool was lifted from the lorry sideways and craned onto the front lawn where it was laid flat. It was craned over the house where a pre-dug hole was waiting to receive it. This was quite an accomplishment because
being an indoor pool, three walls of the extension were already erected and the pool had to be manoeuvred through the open roof. “Bearing in mind I have no experience of fitting a pool whatsoever, I think it’s gone as well as it possibly could have done. The end result is I have a stunning pool with a high quality finish and it all came within budget.” A G Budget Pools & Spas are equally delighted with the installation and being in the business for over 25 years, there’s not much that they don’t know about pools.
Vanessa, who sold the pool to Paul, said: “As a company we are very impressed with the NIVEKO and the training we have received from Certikin has been first class.” A G Budget Pools & Spas 020 8941 6618 www.agbudget.co.uk Certikin International 01993 778855 www.certikin.co.uk
SRS Leisure Help MyTime Active Grow Retail Sales MyTime Active first appointed SRS Leisure in January 2014 as their exclusive retail partner across six swimming pool sites in the London Borough of Bromley. While they had previously had goods for resale, they were looking for a new supplier to grow this area of their business with quality brands, products and marketing. The priority for MyTime Active was implementation of a stock management solution that would work alongside their internal till system, reduce admin and guesswork from re-ordering,

and reduce the amount of stock held on site. SRS Leisure worked closely with each site to establish site specific ‘shopping baskets’ outlining the recommended product and quantity to meet their demand and demographics. Based on agreed stock levels for each site, SRS are able to process weekly replenishment orders which can be generated at the touch of a button for each specific site. This, alongside their next day delivery offering ensures MyTime Active’s displays are full with as little stock held on site
as possible to reduce damage, storage and make life as easy as possible for facility staff. Throughout their three year relationship, MyTime Active has seen the positive results with a
growth in year on year sales of 15%. SRS Leisure 0121 550 2700 www.srsleisure.com
