New in Sandi Land!

Yes, that is Al and Sandi on the red carpet at the movie premiere of Movie 43 in Hollywood on January 23rd. It’s been a busy month of travel, starting with Chicago, on to LA, and back just in time for a trip to Atlantic City.

Here’s the Press Release/Recap of the event that we released via Ask the Pool Guy:

{Jan 23, 2012} It’s no secret that Ask the Pool Guy has plenty of connections in the swimming pool industry, thanks to his experience, artistry, and immense knowledge. But Ask the Pool Guy isn’t limited to pool industry contacts! Thanks to his large network of connections, and his support of various philanthropic efforts, Ask the Pool Guy landed himself in the middle of a Hollywood movie premiere last week!At the Movie 43 premiere, with celebrities around every corner, and with Ask the Pool Guy’s recognizable face, it was quite an eventful night!


The movie was at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, followed by the after party at Madame Tussauds Hollywood. Although he wanted plenty of pictures to document the experience and all the celebrity friends he made, but the after party was packed wall-to-wall and low lighting, it wasn’t the best environment for pictures. As the night went on, though, and the crowd thinned out a bit, he managed to get a few pictures.


Now, we don’t mean to drop names, but Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed sat in the row behind Ask the Pool Guy, he grabbed his popcorn next to Tom Arnold, mingled with Gerard Butler, Seann William Scott, Wayne Brady, Common, Carmen Electra, Russell Simmons, Samaire Armstrong, Tony Hawk, and many more—he even managed to snag a photo with Cuba Gooding, Jr.!


Okay, okay, the name dropping is almost over—right after we mention that our very own Pool Guy was mistaken for a Chuck Liddell lookalike! And the up side for all of our loyal customers? Now, in addition to having an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced Pool Guy on your side, you’re also friends with a celebrity!

Al’s Perspective

“When you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, the day will come when you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them.” – Zig Ziglar, Motivational Speaker

Mastermind Corner

What is your 3 minute story?If you haven’t already this year, take some time and think through your 3 minute story. What are your  hopes and dreams for the coming year, something big you are working on in your business, something you’ve learned, grown into, or surprised you recently. Use this to share your mission and vision with others when they ask what is new. You can also use it as your compass point, so when you are faced with decisions or new opportunities you can ask yourself if it fits in with your 3 minute story, or if you should let it go so you can continue on your way.

Book Corner


  This book is dedicated to your mastery of the art of realizing all your desires. The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of your imagination. Everything that now exists was once imagined. And everything that will ever exist must first be imagined.     Wishes Fulfilled  is designed to take you on a voyage of discovery, wherein you can begin to tap into the amazing manifesting powers that you possess within you and create a life in which all that you imagine for yourself becomes a present fact.

     Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores, for the first time, the region of your highest self; and definitively shows you how you can truly change your concept of yourself, embark upon a God-realized way of living, and fulfill the spiritual truth that with God all things are possible—and “all things” means that nothing is left out.

By practicing the specific technique for retraining your subconscious mind, you are encouraged to not only place into your imagination what you would like to manifest for yourself, but you are given the specifics for realigning your life so you can live out your highest calling and stay connected to your Source of being. From the lofty perspective of your highest self, you will learn how to train your imagination in a new way.

Your wishes—all of them—can indeed be fulfilled. By using your imagination and practicing the art of assuming the feeling of your wishes being fulfilled, and steadfastly refusing to allow any evidence of the outer world to distract you from your intentions, you will discover that you, by virtue of your spiritual awareness, possess the ability to become the person you were destined to be.

This book will help you See—with a capital S—that you are divine, and that you already possess an inner, invisible higher self that can and will guide you toward a mastery of the art of manifestation. You can attain this mastery through deliberate conscious control of your imagination!

Video Corner: What does the Pool Guy Really do?

It’s the middle of winter – and unless we live in a climate where the temperature starts with a 7 instead of a 1, we could probably use a dose of summer right now.

If you’ve wondered about the projects that Al designs and builds, here’s one of our favorite homeowners who can share a little more with you.
