Major fire engulfs chemical plant just outside New York City

Not encouraging news. The country already lost 30% of domestic production in Hurricane Laura. That production capacity has not yet been replaced.

Major fire engulfs chemical plant just outside New York City The blaze at the plant, which houses a chlorine manufacturer, sent smoke hurtling across the Hudson River that could be smelt in New York City.

Thinking it’s time for a new deck? We can help! On this job we discovered flex line used on original build - a pool leak time-bomb. We will replace them now and avoid an inevitable headache. Contact us now to be ready by next summer!

Based on the MIT calculator, we have adjusted our starting wages for our Contract Managers. Contract Managers are the individuals responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of our clients' swimming pools, and the backbone of our company. We feel a "living wage" is a bare minimum for a workforce that we depend on.

Level I was $17.50 is now $19.92/hr.
Level II was $19.00 is now $21.63/hr
Level III was $21.40 is now $24.47/hr
Level IV was $24.00 is now $27.32/hr

We offer health insurance and IRA matching for all of our full time employees. Finding, hiring, and retaining quality employees is the only path to providing A Higher Class of Service, and we are committed to providing that service to the DC Metro area.

Pool Supply Shortages Are Real - PoolMagazine.com - Get The Latest Pool News Ongoing shortages continue to beleaguer the pool construction and pool service industry

04/22/2021

Received this yesterday from our Fluidra rep. Fluidra is the parent company to Polaris and Jandy, among others. A confluence of pent-up demand, a strong economy for many, low production in 2020, the enormous demand from the Texas freeze, and supply chain disruptions in overseas shipping that continue to reverberate, are all combining to create this difficult inventory situation for our industry in 2021. As if the chlorine shortage wasn't enough! We will do our best to keep your systems running, and to procure what we can.

"Hey Jonathan,
We have had VS Pump drives sitting at the Port of LA for over a month. We just started shipping some VS pumps again yesterday, so I take it we got some of those last week for build out. This is going to be a tough year. We are up over 120% on shipments for the year, we are up 300% on shipments for the month, but the bookings are up 599% YTD. Even with more than doubling production, we cannot meet that level of demand in a timely manner. According to the Pool & Spa news latest article I read, they are estimating Texas needs 200,000 equipment sets now to repair all the freeze damage. It's insane.
Based on what I am being told by Distributors we are doing better than anyone else. You should definitely get orders in with your distributor now for anything you think you will need for the season. The crazy demand seems to be hitting all home improvements. I had to buy a stove last weekend, 98% of the models were on backorder until the end of August at Lowes..
I get back order reports, daily shipping reports & new order lead time reports so I will always be as transparent as possible on any items you are looking for. Sorry for the frustration. "

quora.com Jonathan Broga's answer: Writing and watching hockey do not mix. Look down for one sec and everything has changed.

Low water levels in a pool can damage a pump by allowing the pump to run dry. Too much water on the other hand will not damage equipment, however it will reduce the effectiveness of the skimmer weirs. If your pool water level is up to the coping stones, then draining it down to a level that allows an air gap over the weirs will allow the surface to be properly skimmed. If you are one of our weekly or bi-weekly customers and are uncomfortable with using the filter system to properly lower the water, we will take care of it for you at our next scheduled visit. It may be nerve wracking to look at it so full, but it won’t hurt anything in the long term to leave it full.

Remember Helpful Hints from Heloise in the Post? Something like "Save your empty cereal boxes. They can be taped together to make a sled, a shift dress or an impromptu area rug."

We have Pool Pointers from Potomac -

1) When water gets high in the pool from a rainy day or two, or twenty, it is helpful to lower the water so that the skimmers can skim the surface properly. We will be doing this as part of our service for clients with cleanings scheduled this week.

2) As we transition from early spring to early summer in one day, and skip a genuine spring almost entirely, Judicial and Congressional customers will want to keep an eye on their chlorine readings. Both heat and sun will increase chlorine consumption, so pool owners may experience a sudden drop in chlorine levels. Please don't head into the holiday weekend with, in the words of Seinfeld, "A human bacteria frappe"!

Simple, but practical and accurate, advice! :)

We would clarify that it is easy, but takes some knowledge and consistent attention!

us7.campaign-archive2.com I always say that taking care of a pool isn’t rocket science. In fact, it’s pretty damn easy. However, there are people out there, as with anything, looking to make it complicated.
