  1. I agree for sure! Knowledge is power in any industry, and the pool industry is no exception.
  2. Hey Steve, thanks for the post! I had some mild success with Thumbtack, and in fact, still have the same clients I gained from them 3-4 years later. It started to seem like the leads you had to pay to contact were the same, with different names so I stopped doing that. I never gave home advisor a shot because I felt it would have been a more expensive version of that. My friend used them and was virtually a waste for him. I hope this helps
  3. Enjoy! Jandy Hip Hop Song by Chlorine King
  4. Thanks for posting Nathan and welcome to the forum. There's several certifications for different "avenues" in the pool business. For instance, there is a pool inspector certification, stain specialist certification, advanced service technician certification, etc. Does your state require a license to do repairs? I would attend any electrical courses available to you. I hope this helps
  5. Hey Mark! I do see that from time to time. Are you putting in bicarb, soda ash or cal hypo? It may be some undissolved stuff sitting on the floor. If the pH is higher it can cause issues with dissolving chemicals, and colder water does the same. If it's black it's more than likely stuff coming through the screen. I've seen that a bunch. It's always a great add on service to offer birdcage power washing because it makes pool maintenance easier for us as well. Do you notice there aren't any gutters on the house? If you have a roof dumping into the pool that certainly could be it as well.
  6. How's it going Mark? Glad to have you on board! I hope all is well
  7. I've often thought about bringing a robot while I clean the "bad" pools. Do you have a lot of success with it? BTW, stay cool. This is the time of the year to "accidentally" fall into the pool haha.
  8. Hey bud, send me an email to erik@chlorinekingpools.com and I'll put you in contact with him.
  9. Hey bud. Thanks for the post. Contact my friend Nilson with Routely and let them know I sent you. If you join my Patreon I can help you save 10% off as well. His software does everything. Complete service reporting and also invoicing. If you're interested I can pass along his cell number.
  10. Hello there. Do you have pics of this algae? Does it look like sand? It sounds like you're describing yellow algae, and yes it can be transferred from pool to pool.
  11. SPPA (Swimming Pool Pro Alliance) - Let them know you're part of the Chlorine King Group!
  12. Great point Adam. If we make things easier for possible clients the retainment of their interest will be peaked!
  13. 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.
  14. Thanks for joining Markko. We look forward to seeing you on the boards!
  15. 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.
