Why We Do It
Our mission is simple:
To make the indoor pool a healthy and desirable place to be.
Ask yourself: Have you ever spent more than an hour in an indoor pool… and enjoyed it?
The Paddock Evacuator Company was created in 2009 to address a growing concern in the pool industry: indoor air quality. Just like you, we have lived through the pain of having bad, unhealthy air.
- As former owners and operators of indoor pools, we were blamed for bad air quality. Despite doing all we could, the problems persisted. We spent money on things that did not work, and corrosion continued to get worse. Air quality problems were stressful, costly, and very frustrating.
- As industry professionals and pool builders, we were blamed for designing and building pools that had bad air. The appearance and longevity of the facility and its equipment was our responsibility. When air quality became a problem, our reputations were questioned and it was embarrassing. Bad air may not have been our fault, but it certainly became our problem.
- As parents, coaches, and lifeguards, we had no choice but to accept bad air quality as the norm. Despite the obvious health risks (like asthma and bronchitis), we still put ourselves and our kids through it.
- As swimmers, when we could not perform at our best because of breathing difficulty, it was heartbreaking–especially after putting in a full season of hard work to be there. Some of us never reached our full potential because we were held back by breathing problems. It was incredibly disappointing.
We have lived it. We have been there. We understand. That’s why we do it.
Chloramines are toxic and corrosive. That’s correct… that “pool smell” we are all familiar with is actually harmful to our health, and degrades our facilities and equipment.
Chloramines are disinfectant byproducts (DBPs) of chlorine doing its job in the water.
