My New Pool Service Van
Here is Pool Service Company’s new pool service van . I needed a new pool service van pretty badly. I wore out my old van after many years of faithful service.
Ford Transit Connect
I prefer to use a van over a truck on my pool route for several reasons. I have learned over the years that my expensive chemicals stay fresher when not exposed to the hot Texas sun. Another reason is security of course as everything is locked inside when I am eating lunch someplace. Inside the van I have a place for everything, and everything is in it’s place;
The cab is very comfortable and I have a full steel safety bulkhead which keeps me from getting hurt by equipment in the back in case of an accident. One nice advantage of the bulkhead also is that I am only cooling down the cab with the AC instead of the whole van. That’s a very nice benefit!
In case you are curious, the equipment hanging off the back of the van is my large service vacuum. I’ll do a separate post on the vacuum later, but it is the backbone of my business for sure. I can vacuum a large pool in about 5 minutes and it saves me a ton of time and labor when you clean as many pools as I do each week.
Well that is the $10 tour of my new pool service van! I feel proud when I think of my humble beginnings years ago driving around in a giant old and dirty Dodge dually truck that scared my new customers away more times than not. You have to have good tools to run a pool service business and if you take care of your tools, they will take care of your business. See you on the road!
