Education and extensive training is very important here at D & L Pools, Inc. It is mandatory for all of our staff to continue training each and every year. This supports our professionalism and dedication to the industry.

Every year, starting in January, we dedicate the off season to continue our chemical education and product knowledge in order to keep up with evolving technology in the pool industry. Being able to pass along the newest of information allows for you to "Enjoy" your pool or spa, not make it your second job.
