Decking design wins gold!

Home Counties pick up the award

This winter, Home Counties Pools and Hot Tubs took the gold medal for a swimming pool installation that was co-built with EH Treecare Ltd and designer Angie Taylor

Home Counties entered the awards. In this picture the design wins gold award in the Domestic Above-Ground Pool category at the third European Pool & Spa Awards. Hosted by the European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations (EUSA), the award had stiff competition from across the continent.

Craig Trusson (pictured, far left), who co-owns Home Counties with his wife, Gil, was ecstatic to receive such a high honor. “We are thrilled with our European win,” he gushed. “To be highlighted in the EUSA awards alongside such strong competition across Europe is a significant acknowledgement for our company and our entire team.”

The winning installation was eligible for the award having previously taken the gold at the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards.

The clean lines and natural tones integrate with the surrounding environment, helping to make this Endless Pool installation a gold-standard winner! Designed by Angie Taylor and Ed Haunton of EH Treecare Ltd. The pool was installed by Home Counties Pools and Hot Tubs. The decking and pool cladding was built by EH Treecare Ltd. The installation won gold at the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards, and now has taken the gold again at the European Pool & Spa Awards.

This Performance Endless Pool was featured at the 2013 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final London before being purchased for one family’s swimming and recreation. The Perfomance model boasts a larger, smoother, and (at top speed) faster current than the Original Endless Pool. Its compact frame makes it more affordable to heat … even in Brighton!

EUSA represents over 3,000 swimming pool and spa companies across Europe; a panel of top industry professionals from EUSA’s membership juried the awards, which were handed out in Barcelona earlier this month. The organization was founded in 2006 to promote unity among the members of the wet leisure industry across Europe.
