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.

The popular emergence of the swim spa as a ‘tweener — a vessel between a pool and a spa in both size and temperature — has evoked a question. How do you sanitize it? Do you use pool chemicals on a smaller scale, or spa chemicals on a larger scale?
That depends on who you talk to; there are two completely different schools of thought. According to Jennifer Gannon, proprietor of BonaVista Pools, Spas and Outdoor Living’s retail store in Toronto, the swim spa is a small pool. “The...
