Advanced Spa and Pool- Serving The Area For Nearly Two Decades

It’s been nearly two decades since Advanced

Spa And Pool (ASAP) opened its doors in Pelham. The original store was inside of the old Pelham Flea Market building. In a noisy and drafty showroom the vision focused on creating a family business in the swimming pool and spa industry where exceeding the customer’s needs is the primary goal. Fast forward nearly 20 years and Advanced Spa And Pool has evolved into the area’s largest Swimming Pool and Spa specialty retailer. ASAP has been Nationally recognized as an NSPI (National Spa and Pool Institute) “Retailer of Excellence”, been featured on My TV’s series Buy New England, and has won two industry design awards for In Ground Pools by the APSP (Association of Pool and Spa Professionals New England Region). Quality and Excellence take effort. ASAP is constantly striving to better ourselves individually and as a team. Industry education and certification have been critical to Advanced Spa and Pools success. Twice per year the entire company closes and all the staff (retail, service, and installers) attend advanced water chemistry training and various certification classes. To our customers this means they receive the most educated, professional, and committed

contracted for.” Many customers elect to be their own general contractor and just contract the pool to Advanced. Even in this capacity Jim will offer advice and design help to keep the project moving along smoothly.

ASAP builds in-ground pools from the simplest rectangle to elaborate custom shapes. Some of the options on in grounds are custom benches, stairs, and spas, in floor cleaning/circulation systems, automation, LED or fiber optic lighting, and mineral sanitizers. Today’s pools are far more energy efficient and easy to maintain than a pool built even five years ago. Keeping up on the latest innovations keeps us ahead of many of the other pool builders in the area. If you already have a pool or spa, don’t forget ASAP when you need a helping hand. Advanced Spa And Pool retains the highest qualified service staff in the area. Not only is owner Jim Hedlund certified but Jim is the President of the APSP (Association of Pool and Spa Professionals New England Region) and each year at the APSP education seminars Jim teaches swimming pool service and construction certification to peers from all over New England. Every lead service technician from ASAP is industry trained and certified. ASAP feels it is important to be professional in

Located next door to Cookie’s Chuck Wagon in the Central Street Plaza (behind Burger King), The Blue

Sky Emporium brings to Hudson a selection of locally made items too. Working with local craftsmen The Blue Sky Emporium wants to support “Made in the USA.” Currently available is local art by Stephen A. Ralls of Hudson and handcrafted multi-wood designs by Richard Koch of Pelham. Mr. Ralls offers prints of his original art under glass in frames from Vermont while Mr. Koch incorporates as many as six different kinds of wood all to form a single piece of work.

In keeping with its uniqueness, The Blue Sky Emporium is the exclusive supplier of the up and coming “Design You Own” jewelry line in stainless steel. Both inexpensive and fashionable the selection of brightly colored and interchangeable components fits the Ring, Cuff Bracelet, and Pendant.
