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 Dave Nelson of Nelson Pool & Spa, in Napa, California.

“The pool remodel company had drained the (fiberglass) pool to have some repair work done,” writes Dave.

“Unfortunately, it just so happened to be right smack in the middle of a recent monsoon-style, eightday long rain cycle we just had.

“Even a rookie knows that you don’t drain a pool under such circumstances! At least not without some holes drilled. We always have the homeowner sign a waiver when we drain a pool under any circumstances.

Well Dave, Thank goodness it wasn’t your fault! 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!
