With the warmer weather finally here, the experts at BTU Pools in Woking share their top tips on taking the plunge with a swimming pool

What better way to add that little touch of luxury to your home than with a swimming pool? And, whether it’s an indoor, basement or garden pool, BTU Pools, one of Surrey and the southeast’s pre-eminent swimming pool companies, can help you.

“When our customers are choosing a swimming pool, they are looking for something that offers more than just a place to swim in the few sunny days we get in the summer,” says Steve Blenkharn, general manager of BTU Pools. “A swimming pool should be a reflection of the lifestyle and personality of the homeowner and of their family.”


Enhanced well-being

So, what is it that makes a great pool? Steve continues: “Good design is important to a successful pool and considerations such as available light and space, so that it can delight the homeowner and family, are critical to the long-term enjoyment.

“The addition of a pool house, sauna or gym can also transform your space into an area of fitness and well-being, relaxation and fun. And by ensuring the space around the pool is utilised correctly, we can help you create something that can be enjoyed all year-round too.

“Combined with thoughtful landscaping and subtle lighting, our experts at BTU Pools can elevate your pool area into something both elegant and aesthetically pleasing, which you will use time and time again.”

In summary, whether you have owned a pool for years, have recently purchased a property with a swimming pool or are looking to splash out on one this summer, with their expert design, remodelling if needed and inspired refurbishing, the team at BTU Pools can turn it into something beautiful, exciting and ultimately a statement of you.

Range of options

“We understand that taking the plunge into a permanent fixture like a swimming pool is not for everyone,” adds Steve, “But there are plenty of alternatives that we can recommend to help you make the most of your home and garden, such as a less permanent above-ground pool. And for the ultimate in indulgence, and when space is at a premium, it’s hard to beat a spa or hot tub. There is nothing more sublime than enjoying a bubbling hot tub on a cold winter evening looking at the stars!”


Specialising in design, installation, repair, refurbishment and maintenance, BTU Pools are one of Surrey and the south-east’s most popular pool companies. Their shop can be found at Wyevale Garden Centre, Egley Road, Woking GU22 0NH where they stock chemicals, accessories, equipment, a wide selection of above-the-ground pools, hot tubs and spas and offer expert advice. The Pool Shop is open Monday to Saturday in the summer. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
