Keep your pool or spa clear with the least effort and expense. Whether you are a home pool owner or make a living in aquatics, The Pool and Spa Hotline is your educational and operational resource.
Owning and operating a pool/spa is not supposed to be a daily challenge; it is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. Yet there are always new and changing situations in which you rely on pool experts for solutions.
Total Aquatic Programming
Total Aquatic Programming (TAP) is a full-service consultant (and advocates) for financially successful aquatic facilities. Having unparalleled experience in the design of new, renovated, and expanded facilities, creation, and implementation of modern – financially sustainable – aquatic programming. TAP helps people in the public and private sector operate their pools and spas with the least effort and expense.
Pool & Spa Hotline is a new offering by TAP giving members direct access to staff with over 150 years of combined experience in the pool industry. We have owned a successful pool supply (brick and mortar) store for 35 years and advised thousands of customers with home pools and spas. This includes home in the ground pools, on the ground pools, pop-up pools, spas & hot tubs, as well as commercial therapy, Learn-2-Swim pools, and large commercial aquatic centers. Home Pool & Spa Hotline members save an average of over $200 per summer ($500 per year) on pool operational cost while maintaining a clear pool.
Every time it rains, or we have a higher-than-normal number of swimmers in our home pool, the water turns green. We joined the Pool & Spot Hot Line and within a few hours the issue was identified, and problem solved. Total cost for solution $0. We changed the way we chemically treated the water and saved over $100 the next few months. We did not have to change our pool store we just told them what we wanted rather than have them tell us what they wanted to sell us. We are now planning to change the filter and pump for next summer’s outdoor Midwest pool season. Thanks Pool & Spa Hot Line. We are members as long as we have a pool. Fred Dean – Illinois
When my husband would play golf with his friends, he would come home with a new “magic-chemical” for our pool that his friend recommended. It would take me most of the following week to get the pool back to an acceptable condition. We (he) wasted over $200 buying gimmick-chemicals during the summer. This does not include the cost for filter cleaning and water replacement to fix his magic. Pool & Spa Hot Line supplied me with the information to educate my husband, although I still have to occasionally check store sacks he brings home after golf. I need an alarm that tells me when he gets near “my” pool. Pool & Spa Hot Line helped with everything except my golfer’s poor decisions. Thanks - R.S. Green Bay WI
We know we bought one of the cheapest above-ground pool kits available. We did however expect the pump and filter to keep the water reasonably clean. No such luck. Pool & Spa hot line helped us find a properly sized pump and cartridge filter and now we have clear safe water. The cost for the new system was more than the pool itself but in the long run it has been wonderful. Jill L. – Temple TX.
18 months ago our therapy pool had a problem with yellow algae. Advice from multiple local pool stores did nothing to solve the problem. I called Mick Nelson and his solution allowed us to be up and running the next business day with no recurrence since. - Jason Grush, pool operator at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center

Why you should join Pool and Spa Hotline:
Pool stores mainly sell products not solutions. The more problems you have, the more money they make. Since we do not sell products, our job is to make you an educated pool owner, so you know what you need to purchase when you walk in your pool stores door. Many times, what you need is not want they want to sell you. It’s the same with on-line purchasing.
Are you ready to relax and enjoy your pool and spa?
