onBalance is a consulting group comprised of Que Hales, Doug Latta and Kim Skinner.
Our "day jobs" involve owning and running swimming pool chemical, cleaning and repair
services, as well as some remodel contracting (see our individual bios at the links on
the left of this page).
As onBalance we have three primary interests: Research into swimming pool water
chemistry and plaster issues, teaching about our research at trade shows and association
meetings, and providing consulting and expert witnessing services as needed.
How successful have we been? Take a look at the link to the right listing some of our
accomplishments. And if you would like to take a look at some of the handouts from our
trade show classes, they are linked to the left as well.
The following items on this page are some of the research, investigations, and issues we
have been involved in. We hope you find something of interest, and encourage you to email
us if you have further questions.
