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.

Young people know how to make online connections and register likes with an efficient click, but they have less experience in establishing real, lasting relationships.
As a rule, I try to keep a weather eye on the general economy — it’s the single most important factor in how many pools and spas we sell. And sales affect everything we do.
At the macro level, when the flow of goods and services starts to constrict, when confidence wanes, when the movement of cash and capital through the system starts to slow, we in the pool and spa business feel it first because we make the products people cut first. We are the canaries of the economic coal...
