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 Greggory Simmons of Sparkling Pools in Southampton, New York.

“Call came in for a “Slow/Blocked” skimmer,” writes Paul.

“We attended and started at the equipment pad; the Manifold proved to have 5 unnecessary elbows – that affected both skimmers and main drain... so technically speaking 10 unnecessary elbows.

Finally, repositioning of the pump, and a pair of sweep 90’s solved the issues.”

Well Greg, from the look of it, you sure improved things. Thank you for sending this in to us.

And to those of you out there who have never submitted their horror file, please send yours today!

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!

When you are out in the field and you see something that doesn’t look right, send us an email along with a picture and a brief description: Attention Horror File, [email protected]
