The Sept. 15, 2014 issue of Service Industry News brought with it a surprising development. The members of the National Plasterer’s Council issued a formal invitation to the members of the consulting group onBalance, asking onBalance to teach them how it’s done.
After years of research conducted on numerous test pools, the National Plasterers Council has apparently thrown up its collective hands, having lost its faith in plaster’s ability to withstand aggressive water’s tendency to cause spotting.
Meanwhile, the consulting group onBalance has retained its faith in plaster, believing that a properly formulated and troweled surface won’t succumb to spotting.
Despite this confidence, onBalance has responded to the NPC’s invitation with an invitation of its own. Prior to future research, the group proposes a meeting to discuss the science on both sides.
In this special issue of Service Industry News, we would like to issue the following compromise invitation to the members of both the National Plasterers Council as well as onBalance.
We offer our newspaper as a platform for both parties. To the NPC, we would like to offer our staff as your investigative partners in your new test studies. We will come poolside and deliver to the industry what is discovered as its discovered. We promise to bring our smartest writers.
