What keeps us busy in the winter? We have much to do between the times we close pools for the winter and open them in the spring.
On the commercial side, it’s time for indoor construction. A couple projects under construction this year are the WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, IA and the Therapy Tubs at the University of Iowa Carver Hawkeye Sports Medicine Center.
Our commercial sales staff is consulting with existing pools/aquatics directors. This year there is a deadline for ADA compliance in March. We are assisting facility operators to find the best options for their particular facility and their patrons.
Pool Tech performs analysis for a variety of pools. We can apply new technology to help an aquatic center operate more efficiently, adjust chemical needs, plan for future additions, and more.
PoolTech staffers also spend time in the winter season attending training sessions. We learn about equipment, chemicals, new products, what is going on in the industry, and spend time networking with our colleagues.
On the residential side, we are gearing up for the construction season in the spring. Our designers are working with customers to plan the outdoor living environment of their dreams. We are working with local governments and strategic partners to meet codes, obtain permits, and take care of details to create a turnkey operation for our customers.
Our retail department is busy in the “off-season” too. This is the prime time for Saunas and Hot Tubs. We are helping customers with their chemical needs for the swim season and analyzing what updates might be needed and/or available for pool owners.
We keep busy in the winter to help people enjoy water! Swim season is just around the corner!
