One great way to start would be to use the certified pool service professional locator on the APSP website. The APSP Association for Pool and Spa Professionals. By visiting the site you can type in your zip code you can search a designated radius for a pool service professional. Go ahead try it. What might be a surprise to you is there are only a handful of companies that have achieved that highest standard. Clear View Pools is one of those few companies that have achieved the Certified Service Professional designation. The achievement is actually earned by the individual. In our case its the owner who has achieved the award. What makes us unique is that our pool service professional is actually out in the field, working along side his pool service techs.
The APSP offers a range of services that include:
•Setting and advocating industry standards that serve the interests of the consumer and the industry
•Advancing technical competence
•Convening leaders around important industry issues
•Serving consumer interests and public safety
For more than half a century, APSP has been serving members and the public with critical industry knowledge that ranges from sound regulatory practice to industry trends and consumer attitudes. Since 1983, APSP is the only industry organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute as the recognized Standards Development Organization to promote and develop the nation’s standards for swimming pools and hot tubs.
The APSP also has a more consumer oriented site that has some really great information for those that are in the market to purchase a new pool, or looking for ideas about pool renovations or pool safety. Take some time to explore that site and you will really gain some great knowledge about owning a pool or finding a pool service.
