Swimming Pool Holiday Madness!

This week has been sort of crazy but not as bad as previous years because of the unusual cool weather we have been having here. This doesn't preclude us from still getting the frantic calls from customers who all of a sudden decide to open their pools two days before the holiday expecting it to be ready for their pool party.

Buying Pool Products Online Versus Brick and Mortar

This is a touchy subject discussed among ourselves in the pool retail industry but also one that has affected not just the swimming pool industry but more and more mom and pop businesses in any retail situation in downtown USA.

May is National Water Safety Month! Is your Swimming Pool Safe?

Every year in May we are getting our swimming pools open and ready for one of the biggest holidays of summer, Memorial Day. Through out the month of May and the entire swimming season we are asking our customers and pool owners nationwide to ask themselves if they have inspected their pools and upgraded and installed as many layers of safety they possible can. Some of these layers involve some monetary cost and others do not and either way as a responsible pool owner you will have as many layers as possible.
