Why Being Able to Calculate the Volume of a Commercial or Public Swimming Pool is Important

We have to factor in a lot of things when taking care of our commercial pools. Equipment and water chemistry are two big ones. But without knowing how many gallons of water our swimming pool has, we cannot make accurate decisions and perform the proper treatment.

Are Your Pool Drain Covers Putting Your Organization at Risk?

Drain covers on commercial pools all have expiration dates in compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker act.  

At What Price?

So it has been a crazy couple of years with Covid.  Equipment and chemicals were scarce and when some became available, we were all like sharks, snatching as much as we could before it disappeared.  It's crazy.  Now, more than ever people are wanting to put money into their pool and equipment and we can’t get it.

Compliant Commercial Pool Water Testing

We are pool operators,  Water is our world.  We are professionals.  We want safe and healthy water for our guests, clients, and of course our employer.  Did you know we may not only be doing something incorrectly but illegal? (I will hold for your gasps).  I am talking about the proper and compliant way to test the water.  We all know water testing is of the utmost importance in maintaining a...

Public Pool Maintenance

From the designers who draw up the blueprints for a new public aquatic venue to even the lifeguards…we all play a part in being in the line of defense against illnesses and injuries.  These are not only dangerous but can be costly.  We all need to work together to keep that pool, hot tub, water park, or splash pad safe for its bathers, and safe on our bottom line.

Isn’t it the absolute worst to come to check on your pool and you can’t see the bottom due to cloudiness?  Not only is this illegal for safety reasons (the main drain MUST be visible), but it means something isn’t right with the water.  It also makes the pool unappealing to clients and guests.  There are many reasons this could occur.  Let’s talk about a few.

How to Lower Public Pool Operating Costs

Public pools are one part of the commercial pool ecosystem. With everything that is labeled as “commercial” one can assume that comes with “commercial” costs.  And of course, anything “public” means that health and safety are of the utmost importance because a lot of people are involved. This includes public pools. The larger the public pool, the more people involved, ergo, the higher the cost....

It's Hot Tub Disease Season!

Yup, it is that time of year again.  The Holidays, travel, and cold weather have arrived. It is also the ski and snowboarding season. What does this mean to you as a commercial spa or hot tub operator? More than usual use of your facility’s indoor pool and especially the hot tub.  Because of the higher temps, this smaller vessel is literally a breeding ground for death.
