What to Look for in a Pool Shop

Let’s be honest, there are many pool shops in Pretoria vying for your business. You can throw a stone and hit a dozen. But you’ll have to throw pretty hard and pretty far to hit a great pool shop. With the high demand for swimming pools throughout the city for most seasons of the year, it’s quite a lucrative industry in Pretoria. But pool shops that truly go the extra mile for their customers, and who approach this industry with the respect and reverence it deserves, are few and far between.

So how do you avoid the flyby-night outfits, and only work with true professionals interested in raising the standards of the industry, while also offering true value to their customers? There are a few ways, some of which we’ll take a look at now.

It’s All About Experience & a Few Other Things

By far, one of the biggest indicators that you are dealing with a true industry professional is their history of operation. You want to deal with a company that’s not only been around for a while, but that also has a great industry reputation. This is certainly not to say that a company that’s only been around for a few years isn’t a real pool shop interested in delivering a value-adding service to their customers.

You’ll just stand a far better chance of being satisfied when you deal with a reputable, firmly established company that’s been around for a while. After all, the very last thing you want is to rock up at your pool shop in three months’ time, in search of after-sales service or support, only to find a boarded-up shop and a “closed” sign flashing brightly.

Industry Recognition

Dealing with an award-winning pool shop isn’t a prerequisite to finding a shop dedicated to providing you with true value for money, but it helps a lot. When dealing with a company that has received public and private sector accolades during its tenure, you have that little bit of extra peace of mind knowing you are dealing with a truly innovative company interested in pushing the boundaries of excellence.

Quality Products and Solutions

Who doesn’t want to deal with an innovative company? They bring fresh ideas and approaches to established solutions, and they keep things interesting! This is a great trait to have in a company charged with designing and installing your custom swimming pool.
