Episode 53: Make a Choice, Are You a Professional or Are You Just Skimming Leaves with Javier Payan of Payan Pool Service

Episode 53 Pool Chasers Payan Pool Service

In this episode, we interview industry leader Javier Payan of Payan Pool Service. Javier is also the chapter President of the PHTA San Diego Chapter, which has been building a ton of buzz around the industry. He is very proud of the work he did for IPPSA as their safety and public relations person, which involved helping promote their water safety videos.

One common thing that came up several times throughout the episode was that we all have a choice on what kind of service provider we want to be. Do you want to be a pool professional or do you want to be known as someone who just skims leaves? You have the power to determine how you run your business and how the consumer looks at that business. Javier believes that if you want to call yourself a professional then you should take all the proper steps to become a professional.
