I am a Pool Service Professional with over 25 years of practical experience. I currently maintain a pool route. I have extensive experience in water chemistry, automatic cleaners, pool filtration, pool equipment, and automated systems. I am the creator of the #1 Swimming Pool YouTube Channel with over 72,000 Subscribers and 40 Million Video views. I am also the author of the book, "Swimming Pool Care 'The Essential Guide' Pool Care Made Easy"


I created this group so that you can grow in knowledge as a pool professional and also have the ability to get one-on-one help on the spot while you are out in the field. With over 230 Members and growing, we are here to help each other grow as a business and as a professional trade.  I am available to help you with every aspect of the pool service business. 

About the Group

With over 230 Members and growing, we are here to help each other grow as a business and as a professional trade. We have members from all over the country and the world from as far away as Australia to Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Ohio, Connecticut and more!


What makes SPSPA unique is that we connect with each other online and through texting and calling. The group is hosted on the #GroupMe App and once you become a member you are invited into the group texting thread. In this thread, you can post questions and also get questions answered on the spot by the members of the group. This makes response times much faster than emailing or Facebook posting that other groups rely on. 



For the pool service professional, this makes membership in SPSPA invaluable. Joining the group will make you more knowledgeable and more competitive in your market. 



For the pool service customer, this means that your pool service company will be able to provide you with the best and most up-to-date service in your area. Backed by the members in this group, your pool is not just being serviced by one technician but by many with a combined experience of 100 years of service in the industry. You can rest assured that your pool is being serviced by a pool professional that is backed up by a group of service professionals that can treat and solve any pool related problem. You can also rest assured that when your pool service company is a member of SPSPA that they also are covered with a General Liability Insurance Policy through one of the leading insurance agencies in the service industry, SPPA. This policy covers your pool service company in the event of a claim for damage due to a liability issue for up to $1 million dollars per occurrence. 


As a customer of a pool service company that is a member of SPSPA you are backed by both a group of pool service professionals and professional insurance. Ask your pool service company today if they are a member of SPSPA.
