Our Philosophy of Doing Business

      We believe it is important to treat all people with respect and courtesy including employees, customers, vendors, and freight delivery personnel.  We will provide good service in all departments.  Consumers will be treated fairly and honestly when exchanging their dollars for our services.  We will not take unfair advantage of customers in performing labor, charging for products, or selling parts not needed.  We will teach our customers at every opportunity to select chemicals on a basis of need rather than teach routine maintenance.  We believe routine maintenance is a practice that encourages customers to buy products that are not always necessary.  It is our goal to save our customers money and make their swimming and spa experience enjoyable and hassle free.© 


Mission Statement

        We desire to provide a pleasant work environment that assists in improving the quality of life for all employees and their families.  We will provide a pleasant shopping experience for our customers with cheerful and courteous employees giving the highest quality of products and service.©
