2018 CPO-CEU Courses

CPO® Certification and More

We are proud to offer one of the top CPO® certification programs in the Midwest along with a variety of CEU classes and on-site training programs. Our NSPF® Instructor, Chris Gibson, has 20 plus years experience in swimming pool and spa operations training. The goal of our training programs is not just to help you meet state requirements, but also to present the information in a manner that is simple and accessible, so that you come away with a thorough understanding of the concepts of operating swimming pools and spas.

Iowa Requirements

Iowa health code requires all public swimming pools and spa operators to become certified, and renew their certification every 5 years. The Certified Pool-Spa Operator® certification program is one of the accepted certifications. Operators in Iowa are also required to complete 10 hours of continuing education during the 5 years between CPO® certifications. To view the Iowa Department of Health Rules for Swimming Pools visit

CPO® Certification Courses

"I just wanted to let you know what a great job Chris Gibson did with the CPO class that I attended here a couple weeks ago. I have taken it 3 or 4 times and he is just heads above everybody else. He got his materials out to the people in a manner that everybody understood, he had a wonderful workbook packet that took us step by step where we needed to go, and he made everybody understand it so I thought I would let you know that I am really impressed with him, what he's done, and your whole outfit."

—Peg Bell, Algona Parks & Recreation

Stenner Pumping Tube Maintenance

The ease of use of Stenner metering pumps makes them an attractive choice for swimming pool application of liquid chlorine and muriatic acid. These peristaltic pumps are self priming at up to 25 feet, and there is no need to worry about vapor lock which commonly occurs when pumping bleach with diaphragm metering pumps.

stenner pump 200pxStenner’s newly designed roller assembly makes for easy pump tube replacement, which can be done in 15 minutes or less. When dealing with corrosive chemicals such as liquid chlorine and muriatic acid, it is important to make sure that pumping tubes are replaced on a routine basis. For seasonal pools we recommend changing your pumping tubes at least yearly, and up to 4 times a year for indoor or high-volume pools. Proper maintenance will help to extend the overall life of the pump.

Stenner has provided some highly informative videos on their videos page detailing aspects of maintaining your Stenner pumps. Here is a video that covers pumping tube replacement as well as other common maintenance procedures that can increase overall pump life.


We will be happy to help you identify which parts you need to get your pump back up and running. Feel free to contact us if you need replacement parts for your Stenner pump, or if you need a pump repaired or replaced.

ACCO Introduces New Ice-Melt Product: Mag-Melt

We are proud to announce Mag-Melt, our new liquid ice-melt product. Mag-Melt is a 30% magnesium chloride solution that is ideal for the control of ice and snow before, during and after a winter storm. Applying Mag-Melt before a storm prevents snow and ice from bonding to pavement, making for easier removal during and after the storm. Liquid Mag-Melt has many advantages including being safer on vegetation, safer for carpets and flooring, and more effective than regular rock salt.

Mag-Melt is available in a variety of sizes, for a full range of customers. Sizes range from 1 gallon jugs to 275 gallon totes. Mag-Melt is also available in bulk for high volume users. This product is ideal for business owners, property managers, snow removal contractors, and municipalities.
