IN THE MAIL …
Dear Editor, I am a pool owner and its upkeep is done by Joe Moccia of Bluetopia Pool Service in Malabar, Florida.
In last month’s invoice, Joe was kind enough to insert an article that came from the “Not On My Watch” section, published 8/15/2015.
It was in regard to pool safety and responsible pool ownership.
I want to take this opportunity to thank both you and Joe for a very timely article.
I think I am a responsible pool owner, but everybody needs a reminder of just how quickly tragedy can strike.
Thank you for printing all the things we should already know.
We pool owners get complacent and it is a great service to receive a gentle reminder once in awhile.
Thank you. Jan Clampffer, Melbourne, Florida Dear Editor: I would like to thank you for emailing an article that I had asked for from the SIN archives, regarding pool safety, which was included in the ‘Not On My Watch’ section, published August 15th, 2015. I would also respectfully ask, if possible, that you republish annually, for the benefit of those that are new to the biz, or may have missed it.
I believe this hard hitting list of warnings should be required reading for every pool owner; and why I am distributing it to everyone on my client list this spring.
I also consider this straightforward, no nonsense piece to be a timely reality check, now that swimming season is underway in Florida, and will be using it as an opportunity to educate my customers, to ensure that a preventable tragedy does not happen on my watch.
