High Chlorine will Bleach Out DPD Test

We left Las Vegas on Wednesday and drove down to Riverside into 100 degree temperatures (yikes! a record temp for Riverside in November!) for our CPO class this past Thursday and Friday, November 4-5.  The  drive took longer than we thought, so we couldn’t complete the set up until the first class day on Thursday morning.  Elise was running around like a crazy person trying […]

Disinfection – Oxidation – Circulation

When Elise and I present our 2-Day CPO classes away from our home base in Anaheim (as we did this past Thursday and Friday, September 23-24  in Riverside), we usually travel the day before and arrive mid-afternoon.  This gives us time to set up the classroom, check everything out and be fully ready for the next morning — the first day of class.  We typically stay two nights, […]

SPA & Hot Water Facility Maintenance – A Special Challenge

Well, we used all the tables at our home base at Superior Pool Products-Anaheim for our CPO class this past Thursday-Friday, August 26-27.  It was a special group of guys, too:  lots of questions, participation and discussion.

Chlorine Equivalents

We continue to have a fun time in Anaheim!  The class was full this past Thursday and Friday, May 20-21.  The munchies were great and the students were enthusiastic!  Two students ACED the test — can you spot them?   The student dynamics and diversity are always interesting. We had a 25+ year pool industry veteran, an Imperial County Health official, property managers, facility supervisors, […]

What Exactly is pH?

Ever seen Palm trees in front of snow-covered mountains!–well, we did! As we drove to SCP-Riverside for our CPO class, this past Thursday and Friday, April 8-9 the view was gorgeous… snow-covered San Bernadino Mountains on one side and green-covered hills on the other.  Yes, we are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful place! This Riverside class ended up at full capacity, too!  We had […]
