It's been years since I posted here, although I've visited several times lately. I wanted to share with fellow TFP-ers that I recently started a pool maintenance business!
The region where I live lacked such a service until I started my business, Jules' Pools. It is largely a result of spending so much time on TFP years ago that I have developed a knowledge base to launch this venture! I attained a certification, obtained liability insurance, and got it started. I have some regular clients and continue to work at building the business.
I wanted to say THANK YOU to those TFP members who helped me learn the basics of pool care and beyond! I recommend this forum to clients and have a link to it on my website.
