Your Worst Plumbing Nightmares and Expert Solutions

Rick Howard, Rick's Pool Service


Have you ever found yourself looking at a pool equipment pad for the first time and the only thing that comes to your mind is the question of: Why? Why would anyone who claims to be a pool professional install and plumb equipment the way that they did?

My name is Rick Howard and I’ve been in the pool industry for over 40 years. I’m excited to share my experience with real-world examples of poorly installed equipment and the proper way to install and use various PVC fittings designed to make life easier and systems more efficient than ever – including some fittings that you may not be too familiar with.

During the class, I will be showing real-world horror stories of equipment installs and PVC nightmares including before and after images with breakdowns of how to optimize systems and approach extremely challenging situations. We will work toward being able to quickly and efficiently identify mistakes with installations and how to approach looking for repair options. By the end of the course, you will be able to immediately shake your head in amazement at how hard someone worked to incorrectly complete an equipment installation.

This class will help you approach equipment installs and replacements from a new perspective while also broadening your understanding of how installing equipment the right way can help to increase pump performance and system efficiency. Proper planning of installations can help to maximize efficiency and water flow while also providing more energy savings to the customer. Planning ahead also assists in providing easier repairs and upgradability for the future.

Please consider attending my course in “Your Worst Plumbing Nightmares and Expert Solutions” at the Everything Under the Sun Expo in Orlando. This real-world information hour will make a huge difference on how you approach everyday problems with pool equipment.
