Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry
  90% of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry  

Founded in 1980 by Dr. R. Neil Lowry, the Lowry School of Pool & Spa Chemistry has become the most comprehensive chemistry course in the industry. Dr. Lowry designed the schools after realizing that years of practical knowledge and experience in the industry had never been put into a training format. Being a chemist himself he observed that over 90% of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry and recognized a need to pass on his knowledge. Dr. Lowry was a fierce defender of the integrity of the industry when it came to water treatment and loved to teach water chemistry and proper sanitation to its members.

Richard Hubbard is quoted in the Pool & Spa Marketing Magazine in their April 2006 issue as saying “I found him to be one of the most knowledgeable chemists in North America and the most balanced in fairness when it came to critiquing products. He was also well known for his many water chemistry seminars and symposiums in both Canada in the United States.”

Today, Lowry School continues to offer both courses through in-class training and correspondence. Both the Level I & Level II courses have been recently updated by Dr. Lowry with new workbooks and course content to reflect current industry standards and health regulations.
