Tony and Paul are off to Dallas in a few weeks, to take the final part of their pool instructors exams. We’re really looking forward to them getting this final qualification as it means either of them can train people to be proper pool cleaners ,whether on Cyprus or overseas.

Its scared us to know we are the only company on this island, whose pools are cleaned to the NSPF/CPO pool cleaning standards. This level of water cleanliness is vital: not least for the safety of holidaymakers swimming in the pools.

It will be hard work but it will be worth it.

The only thing I’m a little concerned about is that, tony isn’t a morning person and, first thing in the morning, he gets out of bed, half asleep and goes downstairs in only his slippers, to make us a cuppa. I’ve asked Paul, whose room at the hotel across the way, to lock Tony in his room in case he forgets he isn’t at home, pulls on his slippers and toddles off along the corridor of the hotel to make a cuppa………………..

Tony is brilliant at aquatic cleanliness and pool know-how : he just needs to be fully awake to remember to get dressed, love him!
