Website Episode Artwork (3).png

In this episode, we sit down with Katie Crysdale of Lakeview Aquatic Consultants LTD. Katie has years of experience in aquatic facilities management and commercial pool settings. With her business, she is now following her passion for being a teacher and mentor. We discuss a variety of topics surrounding the commercial sector of the industry. Most service companies we talk to either service commercial pools or have thought about it in some way, shape, or form. We wanted to have a discussion with Katie about what is all involved when you’re considering if commercial pools are a good fit for your business. We believe this episode will help you understand the responsibilities you take on when servicing commercial accounts and hopefully it will set you up for success when doing so. There is a ton of great info, so if you can take notes we suggest doing so.
