The material contained here in these web pages is "FOR INFORMATION ONLY" and should not necessarily replace the counsel and advice of a professional service technician. Consulting your local Dealer/Technician is the best path to a quick and successful resolution of any technical or chemical problem. We will not be responsible for any damage or problems that occur from information acquired from these web pages. It is here for your information only.


It is hard to find quality information about Pools, Spas/Hot tubs and their Chemistry. These Web Pages are becoming the most comprehensive on the Net. We will make it a little easier for you to find the info you are looking for or need. Eventually we hope to have all the information you will ever need on trouble shooting, testing, repairing (or keeping your service person honest), and adjusting your pool, spa, hot tub equipment, and related chemistry.

A Detailed Summary of what you'll find in the pages that follow is below. 

Tip... You may want to make sure your printer is topped up with toner or ink. You may be inclined to print much of this information out to hard copy. 'PF' in front of a word in the menu on the immediate left refers to "Printer Friendly'.
