SRK Pool Services – Here to Help in a Time of Need

The COVID-19 crisis is unprecedented in both our national and personal experience. None of us has ever gone through anything like it before and hopefully never will again. For now at least, the virus has changed our lives. In some respects, we may never be the same. That said, there are aspects of our lives [...]

That Smell

We all know it, that horrible smell of an indoor pool, what most people call the chlorine smell. It’s so common that we expect it whenever we walk into a building that contains a pool. We’re conditioned to accept it. We know it’s not good, but since no one appears to die from that smell, we tolerate [...]

One of a Kind

Owning something no one else has can be so amazing and exciting. The phrase “one-of-a-kind” carries a mystique and implies unique value that feeds our ego and stokes our dreams. It says something about the person being accomplished and daring enough to possess that which is truly unique.   In the very same way, it’s thrilling to create singular products that are made to [...]

The Unheard Voice

One of the most self-defeating mistakes I can think of is our lack of willingness to listen to the voices we need to hear the most.   That’s abundantly true in the aquatic industry where facility owners and managers seemingly go deaf when it comes to the messages from their consumers about the water and air [...]

Guarding Health and Safety

Effective water treatment is serious business, and that is true precisely because ineffective water treatment leads to serious consequences. The brutal logic is inescapable. Consider that in the world of public utilities, the ability to kill and otherwise manage waterborne diseases is a cornerstone of public health and safety. Our very lives depend on it. We do not function as a [...]

The Expert Advantage

If you need a wedding cake, you don’t hire a plumber. As obvious as that may seem, in the world of aquatic maintenance, that is in effect what many people choose to do. Rather than turn to a water quality professional, an expert, they play guessing games without the benefit of professional guidance.   As a result, the “cake” [...]

Water Quality and the Aquatic Athlete

I’ve always enjoyed watching aquatic athletes do their thing. Whether they are competitive swimmers, water polo players, divers, or synchronized swimmers, it’s amazing what these talented young people can achieve in the water. I also deeply admire the culture that surrounds aquatic sports and how these programs vest participants with tremendous physical fitness, discipline, and the confidence that comes with doing something most other [...]

Indoor Air Quality and HydroZone 3®: A Higher Standard

Anyone who’s ever been inside a building that houses an indoor swimming pool most likely remembers how it smells, and it’s not usually a pleasant memory. The familiar “chlorine smell” can be overwhelming, and the foul air quality at the vast majority of indoor pool facilities can burn the eyes and even restrict breathing. When I look at lifeguards who spend hours in these environments, I [...]

Embrace the Future Today

There’s something terribly exciting about being ahead of the curve, out of the box, or on the cutting edge. Whichever adage you prefer, the idea is the same: thinking and acting differently from the status quo brings both thrills and risks. At Modern Pool Solutions, we wouldn’t want it any other way.    The thrills for us come with the advent [...]

Shutting Down the Sh*t Show

On June 28, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a comprehensive report on the rise of Cryptosporidium (crypto) outbreaks. It stated that from 2009–2017, 444 cryptosporidiosis outbreaks, resulting in 7,465 cases were reported by 40 states and Puerto Rico.   “Exposure to treated recreational water (e.g., in pools and water playgrounds) was associated with 156 (35.1%) outbreaks resulting in 4,232 (56.7%) cases. Other [...]
