With their roots in landscaping, the Bonsor brothers, Olly and Ben, made a natural progression into pool building encouraged and supported by experienced contacts. Significantly, they have been using SolidPool PROblocks for more than 12 years ago and are now championing their use to the wider UK pool trade. “Before we came across these speedy-fit, light-weight bricks, we were beginning to feel the extra strain of pool building graft,” admits Ben.
“Being in the construction industry is a physically demanding job. We all know someone who has a bad back or who has suffered an injury on site. “PROblocks offer an innovative solution that is both a health and a wealth game changer,” Ben says. “As an added bonus, the system saves both time and money on site.”
So impressed, the brothers sealed the deal to import and sell the specialists blocks. It was a red-letter decision with the team attracting a growing consumer following. One fifth of sales last year were to the landscaping sector with sales already on track to double this year. “We project-manage and supply complete pool kits for self-builders here in the UK and abroad, taking on aspects of the work ourselves,” Ben reveals.
“We hit the self-build market because they were more open minded than the trade.” Orbro are so confident in their system, they are offering a money back guarantee of their in-house team installing a pool shell in 12 days, finished ready to tank and tile or line, with no rendering or screeding needed.
