The Independent Pool & Spa Service Association offers its members a unique and highly-valued benefit plan known as ‘sick route’ coverage. The program establishes an organized system for qualified association members to step in and cover a pool or spa route during a time of illness or injury. Designed for and by pool professionals, members developed this program realizing that an injury or illness could seriously affect the income and long-term business when an individual was not able to cover his/ her route. Like substitute teachers, the program allows service pros the ability to keep customers covered without the threat of losing business. For more information about the organization and on how to join a chapter, call 888.360.9505 or visit www.ipssa.com.

In addition, flooding leaves behind water-damaged electrical equipment in homes, swimming pools and other...
Chemical manufacturers report that fighting algae, in all its many forms, remains the most common source of helpline calls from both homeowners and professionals.
As those who carry on this battle can attest, the campaign is waged using various strategies that work in different ways. There is no one-size-fits all algae treatment, which is why the industry is replete with different algaecides (algae killers) and algistats (algae preventers).
There are tens of thousands of...
