Why Choose OB Baker?
It’s no surprise we’ve grown to be the preferred pool builder for all of southern Nigeria, when you consider all of this:
- Unmatched Experience - With nearly 20 years of experience, we know how to avoid the mistakes that “younger,” less experienced pool builders will inevitably make.
- Experts of the Vanishing Edge - The “negative edge” or “vanishing edge” feature is probably the most challenging and unforgiving feature of any swimming pool project, and should never be attempted by an amateur. We are one of the few pool builders in all of Nigeria that has experience with this beautiful the challenging feature.
- All Tile Interiors - an “all tile” interior has a tremendous advantage over traditional “plaster” interior’s, in that it doesn’t need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. However, it takes great craftsmanship and expertise to install an “all tile” finish. We have many years of experience installing this special and beautiful feature.
- Member of APSP - The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals® (APSP) is the world's largest international trade association representing the swimming pool, spa, hot tub and recreational water industries. APSP members must adhere to a strict code of ethics in business and technical practices and share a strong commitment to the safe, healthful, and enjoyable use of industry products. The APSP effectively replaced another well-known U.S.-based industry organization known as “National Pool and Spa Institute” (NSPI) in 2006.
- Member of SPATA - Members of SPATA must meet strict criteria before they are accepted and adhere to a strict code of ethics to remain a member. A SPATA member’s work is inspected before they can join, and periodically re-inspected afterwards. SPATA looks at the standards of their work, their trading ethics and their financial stability. SPATA sets the standards governing the construction and operation of pools, spas, saunas and steam rooms, and all SPATA members are required to follow these.
- Extensive Referrals - Some pool builders have a questionable reputation, which makes it difficult for them to get referrals. By comparison, more than half of our business comes from happy customers who refer their friends or business associates to us.
