Update 5/30/19: There are just two days left to enter the Truck & Van contest! Entries close at midnight on 6/1.
Do you have an amazing wrap on your truck or van? An immaculate interior? Does your vehicle turn heads wherever you go? Show us in our Truck & Van contest, which is back this year for another spin.
To enter, snag a few photos of your vehicle (hi-res is best) and fill out this form with details about your vehicle/wrap. We'll honor winners in three categories (and give our a few honorable mentions) in the August 2019 issue of the magazine.
Entries will be accepted through June 1, 2019.

We will once again have three categories:1. Best Exterior Graphics2. Most Organized Truck3. Most Unique Work Vehicle
Like last year, we'll also present additional awards as honorable mentions.
Criteria:Each entry is judged by the AQUA team according to two criteria: aesthetics and clarity of information. Simply put, do you have a unique, attractive truck that highlights pertinent information in a way that can be quickly understood? If so, we want to see it.
Prize:All winners will appear in the August 2019 issue of AQUA.
Tips for Your Entry:1. Tell us about your vehicle. In our entry form, we ask participants to tell us about the vehicle and what makes it interesting. What was the design process like? What were your goals with the design? Was your vehicle customized in any way to make your job easier? Does it turn heads in your community? Have any crazy stories? Adding these details helps your entry stand out.
2. Send us quality images. We’re looking for large, hi-res photos of your vehicle. (No need to hire a photographer, though — you can take some nice smartphone images and send them with your entry.) We suggest waiting for nice weather and taking a photo outdoors for proper lighting and clarity. Note: We prefer actual photographs, not renderings.
A picture might speak 1,000 words, but for a pool builder or servicer, a truck wrap can say way more than that. Why? Because it does the talking when you can't.
Maybe you're working your way through the daily cleaning route, and your bright truck catches someone's eye. The sight of happy swimmers on the truck door prompts a fellow driver to think, "Hmmm, that could be us. And we've got a perfect spot in our yard for a pool…"
Or maybe you're in the backyard servicing...

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...
