In the center of almost every community is something that brings us closer as a people, a crystal blue swimming pool, the heart of the neighborhood. This place is more than just a fancy amenity to these folks; it’s one of the few places where people can exercise in a way that connects them with their neighbors.

Just sent out our the latest news on the 2012 World Aquatic Health Conference in Norfolk this October. We're excited about the lineup of seminars and have 27 new speakers this year.
