Pool service can be demanding, particularly on the knees. Is there a way to get the job done while also being kind to your body? Industry pros share their insights:
Swamp Thing Pool Service | South Pasadena, Fla.
"What tips would you give to save your knees?"
A & L Pool Service | High Bridge, N.J.
"I've worn gel knee pads for years now. Lowe's has the good ones that don't pinch your skin. They last about three months, and I buy another pair."
Solar Living | Fair Lawn, N.J.
"Keep moving. Chondroitin and glucosamine supposedly help lubricate joints."
Newport Pool Company | Newport, R.I.
"My employee recommended turmeric. Started taking it during spring openings and within a week, all swelling and pain was GONE and hasn't returned. All natural, no side effects."
A+ Pool Service, LLC | Lakeland, Fla.
"I use a boat cushion after having an emergency knee surgery due to an infection that was life threatening almost two years ago."
Suburban Pool Service | Folsom, Calif.
"I actually carry one of these with me, which I use to kneel on."
