We are selling our house and needed a pool compliance certificate to obtain a section 32.James was great to deal with.He came around early in the morning, supplied a report with the required modifications, followed up my progress during the day and came back later in the afternoon to review the alterations and supply the compliance certificate.Its actually a nice feeling knowing your pool is compliant and therefore safe.

My experience was very positive. James knows the standards intimately and was able to offer constructive advice to ensure compliance. He was able to fit us in and worked around our availability. The extensive initial report and the final certificate were both issued on the day of the inspection and that helped us to manage the process.
