    Explaining What You Include in Your Weekly Pool Service

    Explaining What You Include in Your Weekly Pool Service

    It’s a pretty good idea to spend some time with your prospective new client once you land the service account to explain exactly what you will be doing each week. Especially if they have never had a pool service or if they have had a bad pool service experience in the past.

    Honest Pool Service Bidding – What to Look For on Your Bid

    My Prediction for the 2022 Swimming Pool Season – In a Word, Expensive

    My Prediction for the 2022 Swimming Pool Season – In a Word, Expensive

    Up until 2021, there was no real need to make predictions on the upcoming pool season. Everything was petty much the same old. That all changed in 2021 and now everyone is trying to pin down how the 2022 season will look. I do my impression of Nostradamus here so let's see how close I can get.

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.

Remarkably helpful for the DIY pool owner

This podcast, the author’s website, and troublefreepool have been the only sources I have needed to learn how to manage my pool. The new series on pool chemistry with Bob Lowry is invaluable! Thanks, David, for all you do!
