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 Rick Waibel of Waibel Pools, in Springfield, Ohio.

“This is a old system that we replaced here in our shop”, writes Colin.

“The system was in a indoor pool built in the 70’s. The unit was made in the USA, and I was hoping you might have information on it as I want to put it on display in my new shop when I get it built.”

Sure Colin. We learned that in 1970, Dunlop Australia acquired the Intercolonial Boring Company. The I.B.C. story began in 1888 with the search for oil in Queensland by a North American company. It was soon realised that there was a greater need for water than oil in the pre-motor car era and the Intercolonial Boring Company was formed.

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, spaghetti plumbing, rats in heaters, cars in the pool and more!
