In an unusual situation, SSG Pools, New England’s largest pool builder, came to the rescue of the University of Tennessee – Knoxville (UTK) after an unexpected pool emergency. On Wednesday, June 13, university employees noticed a crack in one of the Allan Jones Aquatic Center’s pipes. Local research brought dismal news. A quote for the supplies and repair of the leak had a forecast a week’s time length. With an SEC regional meet approaching that weekend, the UTK staff would have had no choice but to cancel the event.
As a last resort, a member of the UTK staff contacted SSG Pools. Because of the large volume of commercial pools and inventory that SSG accounts for, the North Billerica company was in possession of the required materials. A shipment of the necessary supplies were sent overnight. Within 24 hours, the receiving and repairing were complete.
This story may seem peculiar, that’s because it is! It just so happened to be that a member of their athletic department was from Massachusetts. Upon contacting SSG, he recalled his awareness of the company through their service of the Weymouth Club, depicted below.
