    Well I guess we know how the conference went today. So much for lifting the cloud of uncertainty about the future growth. Does anyone have any scoop on what went down today?

    • Do any of you live in the West where their Horizon locations are?

    • It just futher supported my statement, POOL has little to do with the housing market growth rate. It is mainly comes from existing home consumption of chemicals etc.

      • chemicals are a big part of it, but it is slowly going away because of salt.(you figure). alot of there buisness has to do with construction and now items that compliment the construction

      • Yes chemical sales are a big part of sales, but the growth comes from new installs, and new installs are driven by people having money to blow on the their houses, and that has been drvien by borrowing against their home equity and putting in pools. Anybody who tells you different is lying to themselves because they want to "believe" in POOL.
        Question for those out there - why are they buying sprinkler distributors? Sprinkler systems are anothe thing driven by new houses and equity withdrawals on old houses - where is the recurring revenue from that? Do they sell water to run through sprinkler systems?

      • You seem to be kind of an expert on this stock, can you answer a few questions?
