CAN YOU TOP THIS?
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 RayArouesty, of Hub International, in Santa Barbara, California.
“This is my second popped pool claim in a month,” writes Ray.
“All pools are at risk of lifting when drained, but the it is riskier to drain a pool soon after heavy rains. Southern California has recently experienced heavy rains — it is prudent to wait as long as possible before draining water. Popped pools are typically demolished and replaced with the resulting claim exceeding $100,000.”
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, snakes in the plumbing, and more!
