Episode 2: Ed & The Swimming Pool Warehouse

IMG_0119.JPG

Overview

We had the pleasure of interviewing Ed from The Swimming Pool Warehouse. As we discussed in the first episode, Tyler’s first and only job in the industry was at The Swimming Pool Warehouse. 

We will dive into how Ed took over as the owner of the Swimming Pool Warehouse and how Tyler worked for him. This was fun because we have a lot of laughs about our time together there. Also, we discuss how we had our first office inside one of the small rooms in Ed’s shop and how it was a big step for us and Brothers Pool Service. 

We dabble on many other topics such as our supports systems at home, crazy customer stories, green pools, and Ed’s favorite social platform Google. Greg shares some of great insight on social Instagram, Facebook, Google and Brand Awareness which you do not want to miss! 

We finish up with a discussion on mentors and how important they are to have in our lives. 

Swimming Pool Warehouse has some great things going on for our local listeners in AZ such as motor and pump repair and they will even work on your cleaners for you!
