The pool and spa industry rallied together to donate and install a swim spa for Canadian veterans in Deep River, Ont.

A consortium of companies representing the Canadian aquatic leisure industry recently joined forces to install a swim spa for a Canadian Armed Forces couple coping with debilitating injuries stemming from their recent tours of duty.

In recognition of the family’s contributions, on April 27, a Hydropool swim spa was installed at the Deep River-Ont., home of Master Cpl. Will Wells and his wife, Cpl. Suzy Wells, who is now retired from the military.

Representatives of the pool and spa industry took this opportunity to extend its deepest appreciation to all those who have been involved on Canada’s behalf in restoring order and preserving peace throughout the world.

The Pool & Hot Tub Council of Canada (PHTCC), which was one of the event sponsors, also acknowledged the fine efforts of those who contributed to the project, particularly William Brady of Cobra Pools & Spas Inc., in Perth, Ont., who spearheaded the initiative.

In addition to the generosity of many local businesses and service groups, other pool and spa companies lending support included:
• Backyard Brands (Dazzle Water Care), Markham, Ont.;
• BonaVista Pools, Markham, Ont.;
• Bubba’s Tubs & Pools, Mount Pearl, NF;

• H.S.T. Synthetics Ltd., Mississauga, Ont.;
