What is the S.T.A.R. Certification Program?
Periodic Products Inc. has been working with pool owners and professionals to help them with metals and metal staining issues for more than a decade and is a recognized leader in pool chemicals education. The pool industry is filled with myths and misinformation about pool chemistry. Dr. Joseph Laurino wanted to create a certification program to give honest and science-based information to service providers and pool professionals. The STAR program was created!
