I'm looking for a good U.V. system for residential and light commercial applications. Any thoughts and experience would be appreciated!

Hi, all!

Looking forward to a busy season this year. As well as my leak detection, I am putting together an organization of qualified repair technicians and subcontractors dedicated to providing quality equipment repairs and pool renovations. I am concentrating on San Diego and Orange County now. I have reactivated my C-53 license #617010 and would love to hear from you, either as a client or service provider. Email me at

Hi, all! I like the picture for this group of the Service Industry News. Look for my ad in the classified section. I highly recommend this publication to anyone interested in the latest pool and spa service information. And it's cheap!

Chris, Does the spa have a small capacitor that is plugged in across the coil on a contactor that might be opening up around that temperature? If not, I would recommend adding one. (Spa Parts Plus part number ITW104-2).

HELP PLEASE  Have old spa where GFI Trips at 93 degrees can't figure out why already replaced circuit board and heater, disconnected ozonator and blower. Nothing has worked thinking it is the GFI itself it is a 50 amp located in the main panel. The tub is an old Reflections originally built by Vita.

Anyone have information about balancing and maintaining a dog hydro-therapy pool? I got one I'm trying to help with it's 16,000gal and gets 10-30 dogs a day.

For the group here, anyone strictly doing repairs only? If so, are you seeing any trend in workorders increase in volume, decrease in volume, increase in ticket price? Are any of you tracking such trends? Simple to do on excel. I personally create anywhere from 25-35 repair workorders a week. The last month (August) the average weekly workorder count was down to a low of 18, though the ticket price increased only slightly by 9%. Is this a trend for things to come as we head in to the cooler months?

I recently had great success in turning a profit in service. We didn't have to inventory a ton of part. What you have to do is manage our customer expectation. If you let them know upfront that it is going to be multiple trips you can make money and not have to inventory thousands of dollars in parts. You really have to make sure the customer understands that it can be fixed but you may have to come back.

Flat rate pricing is a must. It makes your invoices less confusing to your customers and you don't have to defend 'travel time, fuel surcharges, or "your guy wasn't here for a full hour"' With flat rate pricing we were able to add roughly $50,000 to our service revenue without doing any more calls and we only dealt with a handful of pricing complaints the entire year (compared to a couple a week prior to flat rate pricing).

For Jeremy's question about spa parts, the company I work for stoped working on spas long before I ever started (8 years ago) because of the huge parts demand.
