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 Jim Stearns of Stearns Pools & Spas, in New Braunfels, Texas.

“Attached is a picture of what a maintenance person used at a commercial property in the GREAT state of Texas,” writes Jim.

“You see, they decided it was cheaper to repair a broken filter clamp by throwing some pipe clamps together rather than ordering a new clamp.

“I am always amazed at how many MacGyver’s we have in our industry.


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!
