I hate shopping online, but I found your site and and called the freephone number for advice. Your staff could not have been more helpful and talked me through each product and how I could buy online. I found this to be such a positive experience I now feel confident in buying from 1st-direct on my own, I've even managed to teach my husband!

I only use a computer for my work programmes, so I am not computer literate.
I had a problem with my swimming pool and needed advise as well as replacement parts and chemicals. I found it extremly easy to find most of my answers on your website and ordered all the parts I needed, the prices amazed me, they are so cheap and the speed of the delivery was amazing. I also phoned for further advise and the help I received from the girls and the amount of technical knowledge they have is unbelievable. I will only use your company for all my pool needs in the future and I have reccomended you to all my pool owning colleagues. Well done!

Recieved Orilax (fairland) 9kw pool heater next-day, excellent service. Works better than I anticipated raising my 3.5mx6.5m pool on a cool day in April.

I ordered a silver backed solar cover for our pool just a couple of days ago. It's now fitted and looking great and ready to soak up the sun's rays for us. Many thanks for your incredibly fast delivery and great prices!

very friendly and extremely helpful with my
requirements as i was not sure which unit to
purchase. Chris gave me his recommendations
based on experience and am very pleased to say the heat pump arrived the next day, was
easy to install and performs beyond my expectations.
Congratulations to everyone for being a family firm that cares.

Can't praise the staff enough at 1st direct. I run a small swimming pool maintenance company and don't have the time or money to spend sorting issues with delivery and faults. The team at 1st direct have sorted any problems promptly, delivered on time (with a friendly delivery guy) have been really professional, friendly and a plesure to deal with. Can't praise the team enough. Special mention to Francesca who dealt with a technical problem I had with a heater.

Why didn't I find your company when I bought my house with a pool? Covers everything, is best price price by far compared to all the rip off companies out there and it was a pleasure speaking to your technical staff about chlorinators and UV systems. I'll definitely be back to buy from here!

I was very pleased with the service and when I thought I had ordered the wrong thing I was given the correct advice. You did not try to sell me something I didn't need - that's important if you want me to come back again another time.

I contacted 1st-direct as the pool that I represent was having a problem with some of our inlet grilles. I got a very quick and helpful response from the support staff who recommended a practical and cost-effective solution. Very happy with service and would recommend to anyone else.

The team were very patient at all my questions and despite me having no knowledge of the product I was purchasing the team answered my queries without making me feel stupid and even offered advice for areas I hadn't considered. I wouldn't hesitate to tell friends about this company.
