Quoting Management: “Our second quarter results were bolstered by strong performances in our largest, year-round markets and growth in pool refurbishment and replacement activities. Most seasonal markets lagged given the late start to this year’s season as noted in our June 18th press release. In contrast, the early start to last year’s season amplified the impact of the delayed start in our seasonal markets and the consequential business lost from later pool openings,” said Manuel Perez de la Mesa, President and CEO.
