All of the clients there common it and how well he maintained and kept the pool. Clean and asked if he can come over and clean their pool. Flu censure. Ten box I don't know what the figure was but. Suing over clean the pool for a long here at so many pools clean dated he had to start hiring his fraternity Brothers. He would give them five box. The truck that equipment the place to go. And they were grow clean it and he still charged and box of read me fired out of profit. At night you'd park the Geary pools trop in front of his house on main street in Clarence. And before long people American man front door saying you have chlorine. And he'd say yes we need whipped open the garage door and need to have a couple of pails of chlorine in there in the company grew from there if.
