Store Retail Protocol
We encourage customers to contact their local store before their visit to the store – to discuss protocol and the customers’ support requests. In the interest of safety for all, we prefer to handle as many retail transactions as possible over the phone, and with curbside, carry-out style product delivery.
Also, we ask that you adhere to the 6′ social distancing rule in our parking lots & at the front doors of our retail locations. Anyone not abiding by this will be asked to leave.
We will also offer curbside service. Upon arrival at the store, please call the store to inform a sales representative that you are present and what it is you will be needing. Any product that is needed can be discussed by phone or while the customer remains in the car.
All employees are also being required to wash hands before and after any interaction with a customer to keep both parties as safe as possible.
Pool & Hot Tub Consultations
It is recommended that you call or email your store for in-store pool and hot tub consultations to arrange an appointment.
We are here to support you with your water-testing and chemical recommendation requests. We ask that you put your water sample into a disposable container and place it in the water drop off box located near the front door of the store. Please provide your name and telephone number on the sample container. A store representative will contact you within 24 hours with your results and chemical recommendations. We sincerely appreciate your patience during these unprecedented times.
Service: Will continue as scheduled. Please call 410-526-9207
Delivery Options: At this time, we are offering a $75 delivery fee. This can include chemicals, equipment, toys, floats, and any other retail product. This is limited to our normal service area.
Final Thoughts: We are committed to supporting state and local mandates to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we will open April 6th, 2020 to do our part in protecting public health. Water that is not properly maintained can serve as a breeding ground for potentially fatal viruses.
As your local provider of pool supplies and services, we are in a unique position to help keep our communities safe from these serious public health risks by providing essential products and services that maintain the safety and sterilization of your hot tub and pool. We continue to take all CDC recommended precautions necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our customers.
