  2. SPPA (Swimming Pool Pro Alliance) - Let them know you're part of the Chlorine King Group!
  3. Earlier
  4. What company is a good company for General Liability Insurance
  5. Great point Adam. If we make things easier for possible clients the retainment of their interest will be peaked!
  6. Really like the website.. Chat option is nice, but can you make the box disappear after a few seconds or have a close button on it? I found myslef trying to navigate around it and it being harder.
  7. I've had some pretty good luck and experience with the Polaris 9650IQ. It's awesome if you have iAqualink because you can control it from the app. Pentair and Maytronics (Dolphin) are great robotic cleaners too.
  8. Thanks for joining Markko. We look forward to seeing you on the boards!
  9. It sounds like you're off to a great start. In regards to the health insurance, I don't know. I'm on my wife's plan with Marriott.
  10. Hello, Although the pool season has not started yet I am planning to buy such a robotic pool cleaner https://devices4home.com/best-robotic-pool-cleaner/. Since I have no clue which one to buy I wanted to ask about some recommendations. Did you have any experience with individual brands, the selection is quite big and the price differences are huge.

    Hey people, Hope everyone's doing good. Thank you so much for having me here. Hope to meet new people. See you around!
  12. Thank you sir! I watched the ones on insurance, getting new customers, and a few others on the business side. I will be doing my recert for CPO and taking the AST exam this week. I got the paperwork for the LLC EIN ,info on general liability insurance, etc. The biggest hurdle is health insurance. Is there any associations or organizations here in Florida you know of, that offer group rates?
  13. Congrats on starting your business Steve! I have a couple of videos on my YouTube Channel talking about some ways to succeed in the business. If you want I can link you to them. It should give you some ideas how to make everything work. I wish you luck! If you're determined you're going to do great!
  14. Good evening all, About to start my pool cleaning business in the panhandle. Been managing facilities for 12 yrs+ and ready to take the plunge (bad pun) in the cut throat business. Any suggestions on what not to do?
  15. Hey Bill, somehow I missed this. Yes, portable vacuum systems have been a huge changer. I still don't get how someone doesn't use them today! Pool Rx is a great product too for those problem pools!
  16. You're very welcome. That's what I'm here for
  17. Your home page is killer. It's a beautiful site. I would recommend putting more verbiage on the home page, about us (include a picture of you and some history about yourself) and also the contact us page. Google doesn't rank based off pictures, etc. They do so off of verbiage. So relate the content to your page and google should give you a boost.
  18. I'm glad the videos are helping you out! I usually put in the skimmer and make sure it's the last chemical I add, since it doesn't pass through the filter like bicarb does. You can also take a panty hose and tie it to the skimmer lid to have it slowly dissolve in the skimmer box. I'll check out your website shortly. Have a great day.
  19. Thank You, I watch all your videos.. They are very helpful.. Im sorry for so many questions lol.. Ive worked for 2 pool companies and 1 puts the stabalizer in the skimmer and the other puts it directly in the pool.. I really dont like putting it in the pool because it takes long to dissolve and just looks ugly. What do you do when you add stab. Also here is a link to my website www.theotherguyspoolservice.com any tips i can get will be greatly appreciated
  20. I really like the power pole because it's not a cam system. It's a click system. The rubber in the cam will eventually get swollen and the pole will be hard to extend. https://pool360.poolcorp.com/p-451088-power-pole-w-lever-lock.aspx It's not the cheapest thing but will last for a very long time. I'll be doing a review on it soon!
  21. I was trying to find where to post this but could not find where.. what pole do you recommend to start.. something not that expensive but reliable.
  22. Great idea. In this industry you need to CYA (cover your butt) so no fingers can be pointed at you. I've had the documents you speak of save my butt on more than one occasion!
  23. Thank You, so what i took off the chemical only package because you are correct. Customer might say they will net, brush and vac but at the end they wont.. Also as to the services ive done to the pool on that particular week, ive created a file where i mark down the chems for that week , also services i provided for that week, which will help me keep everything organized. I can upload the document for anyone who needs to use this as well.
  24. Welcome Edgar and thanks for joining the forum! Congrats on your business! You're doing a lot of what I did when I was breaking into my own pool business. I worked a job that had me there Monday through Friday, and also Sunday. So I built my pool route on Saturday. I did this for 7 months or so before I went full time in pools. What I would do now is work HARD on your website, SEO, and get seen online while you still have an income from the other job. That way, when you do break from your current job you already have a solid foundation built and you're not trying to mess with it while you're trying to add clients to make a living. Get all the admin stuff out of the way now while you're slow. There aren't enough hours in the day to do everything once you get busy. Believe me.
  25. Good question Edgar. My opinion is to keep things simple. I narrowed down my packages because it got too complicated. I couldn't remember which pool got what service, etc. Eventually you'll remember but in the mean time you'll get calls that you didn't vacuum my pool, brush my pool, etc because you had forgotten that particular pool was a full service. I've also found that lower level services aren't usually kept up by the clients. For instance, chemical only services. They often times do not actually clean the pool or filter so the pool will eventually turn. Then, you have the finger pointed at you. I offer a basic and premium. The difference is we don't vacuum with the basic. Everything else is the same. I hope this helps.
