    you should go for it... low startup investment and there are millions of pools and new ones being built every day.

    the only thing im trying to figure out is how to manage the pools sanitization wise... pouring bleach in customers pools everyday would be impossible so im thinking i would be stuck using the trichlor tabs which would raise their CYA.

    if anyone has any input let me know

    I would stick with the tabs, just to avoid any conflicts with your customers. How many pools do you have?
