WeatheredPoolBug ,

Love the Real-World 35 year lessons learned

I have been cleaning for about 1/2 the time you have been plying your craft: I enjoy hearing ways I can improve & I really enjoy it when you reinforce the procedures & processes that I have chosen. Always learning & adapting, you are a part of that. Thank You Sir.

North SD surf ghetto ,

I always struggled as a homeowner.

If you’re a pool owner and maintain it yourself, David’s podcast and YouTube channel are a must! He’s so generous to to share his knowledge and experience. My pool has never looked so good.

Thank you David!

Adam in Bend ,

Great content, perfect lengths

I have listened to almost all of David’s podcasts and learned so much. The coaching group is a steal at $10 or $20, which is way below the actual value. This review was not solicited...I am just a listener. Update…David just keeps the hits coming. His dedication to the pool guys and gals is immense.
