  • This works perfect. "LESS IS MORE".. This worked so great for me.. Take a picture of you skimming ( from behind) your prettiest pool. Then take a picture of you from the front ( your face). Go on vista prints. Pick a great design ( color background color etc, preferably a baby blue .. ( I choose a background that is of blue water)... YOU DO THIS ON A POST CARD ( very important). ( when I used post cards my hit ratio went up like crazy.. "I had a guy tell me look I have 5 of your post cards). Anyways on one side.. Put the pic of you your face on one side and the other pic of you skimming the pool on the other side.
    List the following:
    - IF YOU HAVE NO EMPLOYEES.. you are in the money, ( PEOPLE WANT TO DEAL WITH ONE GUY , HAVE ONE GUY COMING IN THEIR BACKYARD, etc
    LIST.. " owner operator only
    "Years of experience "
    What you specialize in ( repairs, new installation, same day service, if you are a member of any organization ( I am CPO certified).. Then offer a month free after 6 months of continued service).
    YOU GOOGLE MAP WHERE YOU WANT TO SERVICE- PICK A WEALTHY COMMUNITY..
    Now SEND THESE POST CARDS- Once every 2 months - RELIGIOUSLY- BE CONSISTENT
    ( give it a lil time , then as soon as their old POOLMAN turns their pool green and the homeowner gets pissed- TRUST ME THEY WILL HOLD ON TO A NICE POST CARD-

    - your other option is - PICK YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, THE ONES THAT HAVE POOLS , GET COLORED PAPER, RED, ORANGE, BLUE, put down your experience ( just like the post card). ( IMPORTANT: WHEN YOU PUT IT IN THEIR MAILBOX OR FRONT DOOR... YOU HAVE TO WROTE THE WORD "ATTN: POOL OWNER"
    This way .. They don't just throw it away.. They will OPEN IT UP AND READ IT BECAUSE THEY THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WROTE ON THE OUTSIDE "POOL OWNER" ( because they are the pool owner.. AND YOU SUPRIZE THEM AND THEY THINK "ITS SOMETHING IMPORTANT ABOUT THEIR POOL)
    Do this and you will get results
    Good luck
  • We use an ios app called Pool Route Developer to look for houses with pools and build a list.   If we have allot of downtime we will put door hangers on the houses telling about our services, but most of the time we just mail them a brochure.

    We are currently trying an app call FeatherServe that helps with scheduling, route management, and making sure my guys are on task.   It looks promising, but we are still figuring it out.  

    Is anyone else using these tools, I'd sure like to here more about what technology others are using.

The LSI is Reliable

Using the Langelier Saturation Index as a guide for maintaining proper pool water balance and to protect pool plaster has become a mainstay in our industry, and we believe, for good reason.

We at onBalance have conducted several LSI…

Aqua Genie

I have a real old Aqua Genie skimmer with a control valve.

My issue is there is no plumbing schematics detailing how to connect the feed inside the skimmer through the control assembly and into the bottom of the hopper.  If anyone knows…
