The Next Step in Pool Care

The Next Generation of Pool Care, Delivered Today!  It’s a familiar image, a small truck darting around town with a pool pole sticking out the back with a placard on the side that says, “pool service.” The hard-working soul behind the wheel works his or her route every day, taking care of pools with a leaf net, chemicals and [...]

A Voice of Reason

Achieving high water quality is essential when creating a healthy water environment. Often, one of the keys to successful water treatment is overlooked: taking the time to listen to the people who live and work with the water every day is critical to getting it right. To illustrate what we are saying, meet Jeff [...]

Cooperation is Key: A Call to Landscape Architects and Water Professionals

I love what landscape architects do. It’s a profession dedicated to making the world a more welcoming, sustainable and beautiful place. I admire the fact that landscape architects have formal educations and are accredited, something I wish was true of the pool and spa industry. In many ways, landscape architecture has a lot in common [...]

The Power of Comprehensive Pool Care

It’s always struck me as ironic and unfortunate how water is the most important element in a swimming pool – the only reason that the pool, or spa, exists in the first place – yet the quality of that water is almost always left to chance because the systems and [...]

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 [...]

There are two basic ways to remove contamination from water: remove it physically or zap it with chemicals. I would argue that based on the way we do things in the aquatics industries in the U.S., our focus is largely on the chemical treatment side, and we pay less attention to the physical removal part of the process.   I think that’s a mistake because both [...]

Sometimes, the path of least resistance is also the wisest. I’m all for hard work but also equally a big fan of efficiency and making life easier wherever and whenever possible. Experience has taught me that working smart is just as important as working hard.  A great case in point is our recent purchase [...]

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 [...]
