Service Industry News

For more than 29 years, Service Industry News has served as the voice of the pool and spa service professional. A twice monthly newspaper, the staff covers featured stories on equipment installation, trouble-shooting and repair; water chemistry and business issues facing the industry; and news pertaining to the interests of the pool and spa technician.

In addition to the newspaper, we have produced three technical books used throughout the industry as training and reference guides. The Professional Pool Technicians' Guide to ChlorineGuide to Alternative Sanitizers and the Guide to pH, Alkalinity, Water Testing and Water Balance are compiled from articles that originally appeared in our newspaper.

We've also updated and republished an industry classic on pool care, Charlie Taylor's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Pool Care. This light, easy-to understand and illustrated book has long been a part of any complete library on pool care. Now, it's also available in Spanish!

Industry family members need our help

Out of respect for the millions of families who were displaced because of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the writing staff of Service Industry News has elected not to print this issue’s “Can You Top This?” column. 

The events that have devastated so many neighborhoods and cities of Texas and Florida simply could not be topped.

Over the course of assembling the content for this special issue of Service Industry News, we have learned of many service professionals who have lost their homes or have otherwise been affected by the hurricanes and subsequent flooding. 

Our industry family members need our help. To that effort, the Service
Industry News
team has compiled a list of those service associates who would benefit from any financial donations. To obtain the names and addresses of these individuals please write to:
