The podcast from pool experts for everyone

You dream of having your own swimming pool. You have your own garden or are planning to move.

We, Angela Herrmann and Michael Visser, are two old hands in the swimming pool industry and would like to help you make your dream come true.

We will try to answer these and many other questions based on our experience with wit and charm. We will clear up myths and fairy tales of the industry, have friends from the industry visit us, open the technology box and tell you what we have learned with every single podcast production.

We would be happy if you subscribe to us and listen to us.

Sunny greetings, Angela and Michael.
