Terryarko 002HASA Pool, Inc., a leader in liquid chlorine water treatment solutions for recreational swimming pools and spas, municipal drinking water and industrial water sanitization, formally announced that renowned industry expert Terry Arko has joined the HASA team.

Arko, a leading influencer in the water treatment space for the past four decades, will play a pivotal thought leader role for HASA’s growing network of distributors, dealers and pool service professionals as the company’s new head of product training and content management.

Terry Arko has more than 40 years of pool, spa and hot tub product experience and is one of the industry’s most knowledgeable sources regarding sodium hypochlorite water treatment protocols. He is a widely respected technical strategist and educator with specific experience in service, repair, retail sales, chemical manufacturing and product development. He is a Certified Pool & Spa Operator and CPO Instructor credentialed through the Pool & Hot Tub Foundation.

“Terry Arko is widely recognized within the pool, hot tub and water treatment space as a true thought leader and influencer, trusted by HASA customers and competitors alike within our field,” says Chris Brink, CEO of HASA Pool. “HASA is pleased that he’s joined our team as a full-time, permanent technical expert advising us on a range of issues related to recreational and non-recreational water treatment."

Before joining the HASA team, Terry Arko was director of technology services at Bio Dex Laboratories, a leading manufacturer of chemicals for swimming pools and spas. Prior to that, he served as a water specialist for Natural Chemistry (owned by NC Brands), where he supervised commercial sales, corporate training and technical trade article development.

Arko will work closely with the HASA leadership team to guide future R&D efforts related to the company’s swimming pool shock and sanitization product lines. His strategic hiring is part of HASA’s long-term commitment to bring the best possible efficiencies to market and advance the organization’s many technical offerings during a transformational growth period for the brand.

Terry Arko is a high caliber resource who can help us further grow HASA’s product development efforts, while extending the knowledge base we make available to the industry through original technical articles, tutorial videos and white papers. We anticipate he will be an invaluable communicator and educator across the entire HASA supply chain.”
