New Lights

Replacing Underwater Lights

We have recently replaced the underwater lights at a client’s pool with new stainless steel housings and LED lights. LED lights have many advantages;

cheaper to run, up to 80%,

longer lifetime, on average 5 years plus when run for 12 hours a day,

they don’t heat up.

The most common cause of failure with halogen lights is from heat resulting in pressure building up in the housing, causing the casing to expand around the seals. This allows water to leak into the casing, fusing the bulbs or causing a short circuit and the main distributor board to fail.

Pool Service

Replacing the lights in a pool can easily be combined with an overhaul of the filtration system used in your pool. Our Servicing regime involves;

• monitoring the chemicals in the water to ensure that they are at the required healthy levels,

general cleaning of the pool (e.g. brushing, vacuuming),

• washing and re-grouting mosaic tiles,

• checking the performance of filters and pumps,

cleaning pool covers and surrounding areas.

Providing you with the piece of mind on the quality of the water in your pool and a great looking pool that sparkles.

Happy Customers

Quick update from Phil of Specialist Pools Services on a couple of jobs completed during October 2016.

Replacement of a leaking filter

We had to cut out and replaced a leaking filter on a hydrotherapy pool in a private health club in Chelsea. This was made especially difficult as the plant room was 2 floors underground and the leaking filter was obstructed by many other pieces of plant room equipment.

Repaired filter on a hydrotherapy pool.


However, it all went to plan and the manager was extremely happy as we had advised the hydro pool would have to be closed for 7 days while we carried out this work, and we were delighted to open the fully working spa after only 4 days of downtime. One very happy customer.

Plant Room Install

We  also completed a plant room installation in a private residence in Chelsea, without drama and within the specified time. This was an OSPA system, far more complicated than a basic plant room install. Another happy customer.
