Meet Your Team

Chris Bartlett

Director

Chris has been a Director for the last 15 years but has worked in the swimming pool industry since 1981 when he joined a family business where he worked for nine years before leaving to work for a swimming pool distributor in Devon and later a swimming pool chemical wholesaler in Cheltenham.  Outside work Chris enjoys watching sport particularly rugby and athletics.  He really enjoys listening to music both live and at home through the HiFi.

Rob Horne

Director

Rob is our Pool Servicing & Maintenance Director.  He spends his week out on the road visiting customers pools doing regular pool service visits as well as spring commissioning and winterising pools.  Rob has been a Director of The Spa-kling Pool Company for the last 15 years and previously he worked for another pool company for over 10 years.  Outside work he loves all types of sport with a particular passion for football and cricket and until fairly recently played 5-a-side football.

Mark Knight

Service Engineer

Mark has worked with The Spa-kling Pool Company for over 9 years.  Mark services and maintains customers swimming pools on regular service visits as well as opening and closing pools at the start and end of the swimming season.  Mark also looks after customers that require new pump or filter installation or require some plumbing alterations or repairs.  Outside work Mark is a fan of most sports particularly rugby and football and enjoys attending music festivals and concerts.

James Bartlett

Showroom Manager

James amongst many other duties is the person that most visitors to our showroom will see.  He officially joined the company in the summer of 2011 but before this helped out during the school holidays and from a young age always wanted to join the business but stayed at school until 18 to complete his A levels.  These days he really manages the showroom and has gained a great knowledge about swimming pools and particularly pool and spa water treatment.  Outside of work James enjoys music and listening to audio books as well as socialising with friends.  He also enjoys American football and is a big Vikings fan.

Richard Wall

Director – MillAquia

Richard has his own pool company, MillAquia, and has known Chris for about 30 years as the two of them worked together for a swimming pool distributor in Devon.  Richard has extensive knowledge of building and renovating swimming pools and this lead to him and his team being the natural choice for the installation of the Endless Pools® that The Spa-kling Pool Company sell.  Also, when any of Spa-kling’s customers require any renovation work undertaken on their swimming pool Richard is introduced to them.  Outside work Richard enjoys sailing and country pursuits and is currently in the process of renovating his own house.
