Ecosmarte is used and proven in many countries. I have installed more than 200 of them in hot tubs and 20 or more in pools. It is a true 100% chlorine free system that works wonderfully. Copper and Titanium! The fully automated system is the best and uses C02 for PH. Calcium is 400+ and PH between 6.7-7.1. In pools one gallon of liquid shock a month is sufficient. Use Phosfree system by natural chemistry for Algae control. Ecosmarte Is used in swimming pools for the Olympics and astraunots use similar technology for drinking water.

 In pools one gallon of liquid shock a month is sufficient.

It pays to attend an occasional pool trade show or table-top. I was helping Alan Vanderboegh at his Pool Svc Products booth at last week's International Pool Show Shindig in Orlando. Now, Alan LOVES new stuff that pool techs and non-pool techs and anyone in general comes up with that not only works, but will SELL. At Alan's booth, I had the privilege of meeting Steve Thompson of Brooksville, Fla. Steve, a pool service owner and unofficial pool genius, has devised a most clever yet simple solution for all of those VGB-compliant MD covers we (or somebody with the lung capacity) should be installing on all non-compliant pools. When you see the video which I will be posting soon, you'll slap your forehead. And Steve's a nice guy, too.

Thanks for the info Rob. I'll definitely be checking with them and see what they recommend......I've also contacted Inlays and they heard of epoxy working pretty good.....ill also keep making my own/vinyl DMs in my back pocket.....

The 6" x6" square vinyl DM's don't last on a deck.

The depth markers need to be on the pool wall and the deck when you are done. Have you considered painting the markers or using vinyl stick on letters? It is tough to hang tile on a fiberglas pool. Call Family Fun Pools or Hawaiian Pools and find out what they do. They make the shells.

Wanted to get some feed back on this customer question. I have a commercial customer that wants to replace the Depth marker tiles that are currently on their fiberglass pool....wanted to know from anyone what could be the best adhesive to use.....they are 6x6 Smooth ceramic tiles that are going to be on a fiberglass wall.....or should I talk them into using the vinyl style with the adhesive kit?

Hi everyone! Thanks for having me and I hope everyone is handling the heat safely this summer while working. I cleaned 13 pools today and boy am I pooped!

I have created a new discussion forum website called just for pool industry folks like us so that we can share ideas and learn from each other. This website is privately run by myself and is free and open to anyone in any field of work within the pool industry. Due to being spammed, I have to approve the registration, but that usually only takes an hour or so, and then you can post questions or comments.

I really need some folks to join so that we can get the ball rolling.

Thanks for your interest!

Hello All, 

I am looking for some feedback on my new website for my Pool and Spa Service in Atascadero CA.  I am looking to improve any aspect of it, or to find any defects it might have.  What else should I include?  Summers Pool and Spa, Atascadero CA
