The New, Mobile-Friendly has launched!

I am excited to announce that has been upgraded! Why am I excited, you ask? Since launched in 1996, it has always been my goal to make shopping on our website user friendly and easy to navigate. As a small, family run business, it can be challenging to keep up with the pace of the evolution of online marketing. This newest iteration of our site makes huge strides toward making shopping easier than ever for commercial aquatics buyers.

Improved Search

Our search tool is more robust than ever before. In the past, searching our site required very precise search terms. Our new site search will provide more relevant products in the results and allow multiple terms with much better likelihood that you will succeed finding what you are looking for.

Mobile Friendly

Our new site is built with responsive design, meaning that shoppers on phones and tablets will get an experience catered to their device. Touch screen users will enjoy the larger photo and text links, improved menus and modern styling.

Better Promotions

With our new website, we are better equipped to communicate important offers, such as our current 2015 Winter Sale and our Specials and Closeouts section. Plus, if you place an order for a closeout item and you order a greater quantity than we have on hand, the website will let you know before you place your order.

Better Shipping Calculation

Calculation of our freight charges has been really easy the last couple of years with our $7.95 flat rate for orders under $100 and free shipping for orders over $100. But there are a few products that we simply can't ship free and still offer our best prices in print. So now, if you order items that are not eligible for free freight on our website, or if you ship to a location where we cannot ship for free, you will know at checkout. And our friendly staff will always get your confirmation of any shipping charges that might apply before proceeding with your order.

The Future...

We are set up to bring additional improvements and content in the coming weeks and months. One of the things that isn't quite ready to launch yet is the ability to customize certain products (for example, identifying frame and strap color of casual furniture). So, in the meantime, you may specify any colors, sizes, specifications or instructions in the comments when placing your order. If we have any questions or if additional information is required to process your order, we will contact you right away.

While we continue building a better experience for you, please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. The only way we can get better is if we get feedback from you. Thank you for an amazing first 20 years online! I look forward to what the next 20 years brings.

Website Repairs


It had come to our attention that our website was not allowing users to create new accounts, so orders were unable to be placed. We have fixed the problem. If you have any problems with our site, please let me know by emailing

We still have a wide variety of items on sale or closeout through the end of the month. Check it out!

Thank you for your support.

Another upgrade

Hi, will go offline for a period of time from Noon on September 6 until we are finished with an upgrade to our accounting software. We apologize for any inconvenience and will be up and running again as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience, and please call us at 1-800-437-8072 for any questions or orders.

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 Upgrade was upgraded yesterday. The look and feel has been updated, a new shopping menu has been integrated, and there is now a one-page checkout process, as well as a guest checkout feature.
There is still some work to do to get all the newest products live on the new site, but that should be done this week. Feel free to send me your comments and questions. -Cal

2013-14 RecSupply Catalog Hits Mailboxes


The 2013-14 RecSupply catalog is hitting mailboxes. This year's issue is packed with 152 pages of products selected for commercial swimming pools and aquatic facilities. I look forward to making a lot of the new products available on soon.

We are in the middle of upgrading our website. We are updating our look and adding new features that should make it easier than ever to navigate our online selection. I will announce here when our site is ready to relaunch. In the meantime, the site still carries a broad selection of items from our 2013-14 catalog and many items that are not in the catalog. If there is anything you are looking for that you cannot find, please call our customer service team toll free at 1-800-437-8072. We will be happy to help you find the commercial swimming pool items you are looking for.

If you have not received your 2013-14 catalog yet and would like one, please send us your name, your facility's name, and your mailing address and we will send one right out!
