Welcome to the latest edition of our popular “Can You Top This?” column, featuring the newest entry in the Service Industry News “Horror File. ”

This issue’s entry comes to us from Gerhard Gehrke, of Gehrke Pool Cleaning, in San Rafael, California.

“The knuckleheads have been out in full force this week,” writes Gerhard.

“Two full gallons of gas resting on a warm pump. A pool gate at a condo complex propped open with no one around. If you need to work in a pool area and won’t be present, get a key. There’s an average of ten non boating related drownings daily in the U.S. alone.”

Thank you,Gerhard— Your message alone can save lives. Other publications like to print lots of pretty pictures of beautiful pools, spas and well engineered installations.

At Service Industry News, we would rather go behind the scenes and take a closer look at the type of stuff our readers encounter everyday — cracked tiles, tree roots, spaghetti plumbing, rats in the heater, cars in the pool and more!
