Is there, or has it ever been considered to develop a Certification program that would certify pool care companies at BBB pool care? I recently had to contemplate what might happen if I suddenly departed. I can't imagine my wife having to take care of our pool at such a time and I imagine a standard pool service coming in and Copper/CYA/Calcium nuking what has been a beautiful pure BBB installation. I think my wife would appreciate my memory that much more after a pool service messes it all up, but I rather she just enjoy pool than worry about anything. Ideally I'd be able to leave her with the phone number of a company who could take over where I left off.
In the grand scheme of things this scenario is pretty insignificant but I see a lot of posts from people who would rather pay someone to manage their pool than take the odd hour a week testing, dosing, brushing and vacuuming. Seems like there's a market potential for this sort of thing even though there are numerous pitfalls that could prevent success.
Other than some well thought out recommendations for test kits, this site has given a wide berth around commercialization which I appreciate, but a Certification program is more of an oversight of commercialization that could provide great benefits to many. Any thoughts?
