The Swimming Pool & Spa Alliance held their awards on August 17, with the major prize of Pool Builder of the Year 2013 going to Narellan Pools Riverina & ACT.
Owners Steve and Libby Rowbotham boast a long association with the swimming pool industry: Steve has been in the industry for the past 30 years and has overseen the construction of more than 2000 pools. Through that period, he has owned and operated businesses in four states including the ACT.
A surprise award on the night was the Lifetime Achievement Award presented to Cal Stanley. The Alliance said that this is a rare honour, not given lightly and is only presented to those whose achievements are viewed as extraordinary.

There will be more on the awards in the October printed issue of SPLASH!.
