Keeping an Open Mind when Managing Water Quality

New information can open your eyes and sometimes even present fresh opportunities. That’s why keeping an open mind is so important and why curiosity is such a powerful mental tool. We miss stuff when we’re not paying attention. However, I was not feeling that way as I made the four-hour drive to Newark, New [...]

The Safe Use of Ozone

I’ve long thought that ozone is arguably the pool industry’s most underused technology, primarily because of the perception that it’s difficult to control and potentially dangerous. One of the biggest hurdles of using ozone in a commercial pool is that, in most situations, you can’t run it 24 hours a day. The reason is [...]

Safety Always

Whether in a swimming pool, the ocean or even a bathtub, immersing your body in water always comes with an inherent set of risks. In swimming pools, those risks include not only drowning but also diving accidents, suction entrapment, slipping and falling, electrical shock, and waterborne illnesses. That’s quite a list and, unfortunately, every [...]

Pool Your Senses

Humans are the ultimate water sensors. We may not be able to precisely measure pH, oxidation reduction potential (ORP), or calcium hardness without testing technology, but when it comes to overall water quality, there is no better measure than the subjective sensory data we otherwise know as experience. The key to tapping into our [...]

Staying Steps Ahead

Ultimately, pool service is all about anticipating trouble before it strikes. If we can anticipate what’s going to happen with a body of water, then we can take steps to minimize the negative effects. It’s all about staying steps ahead of the inevitable. We know, for example, if it’s going to rain and there [...]

Legendary TV personality Art Linkletter was famous for his catch phrase “Kids say the darndest things.” As most any parent will confirm, truer words have never been spoken.
