Mom and pops are crumbling, the customer is loosing!

       I was just reading the latest article in Aqua titled "Fight For A "Cleaner" Sales Channel" by Scott Webb. It was well laid out and I have made some responses to the article.

Here is the body of the article:

When Internet retailing began over two decades ago, traditional retailers with storefronts and parking lots and cash registers…

What is going on?

This headline is what first came to mind when I was told, on the phone no less and it was my day off!!, that I was being laid off due to restructuring. My first response was "what is going on?" feeling a bit skeptical about the initial reason. You see the store I was managing was having the best month of July ever, the customer retention was at an all time high and the store morale was as if we were a family.

Let me give you a bit of background, I accepted the role of store manager as a… Continue

Green, Green or Green. What is the motivation?

This is a question I asked myself a while back.

After 18 years in the industry I was trying to figure out, What's next? What am I destined to do in this industry? Am I just going to continue with what I am doing?

Let me start with a bit of background.

I started in the pool and spa industry in March of 1990 as an assistant manager for Leslie's Swimming pool supplies. I had never owned a pool or spa, the only exposure to the industry was going to a local chain of pool stores that… Continue

Another Hot tub trade association?

The other day I recieved my newest issue of Pool and Spa News and right there on the front cover, "New Hot Tub Association Formed", my first reaction was "What?".

As I started to read the article I realized it was an organization that is being supported by true leaders in the industry, including Watkins and started by Andrew Tournas (owner of Thermospas) now that got me a bit intrigued and as I read further I noticed representatives from other associations were bad mouthing the new… Continue

Go GREEN!!

At this time of the year when all the trade shows are heating up and we are trying to get our ducks in a row for next season why not consider starting a little "GREEN" movement of your own. Over the last couple of years I have been increasingly focused on "green" alternatives for our industry. Don't misunderstand, I am not a fanatic or someone that lives entirely green, actually quite the opposite. My initial motivation was to save money on the consumables that my family uses and as I have… Continue

Justin...I'd like to know more how the group is moving forward with a more green approach.

Hello and thanks for the note. We've been manufacturing green technologies for various industries long before it was fashionable to be green. Great to hear the pool industry is actively moving in that direction.

Our company, Great Lakes Bio Systems (www.greatlakesbiosystems.com) manufactures enzyme based products for pools and spas. Great to see Harold from Orenda Technologies also participates in this group. Enzymes are an effective means to controll "bio loading" in pools & spas reducing the need to backwash or waste water.

I'm happy to help any way that I can. Let me know. Tom

Thanks. We have been trying to sell the "green" idea for a while and are hoping that it picks up as it will be beneficial for all. We have used the VGB act to help push variable speed pumps and are trying to make the push for solar heating and heat pumps instead of traditional gas heaters. What solar heaters are you using/selling?
