Meet Buddy

Meet Buddy

“Excuse me; I don’t believe we’ve met yet.  I’m Buddy, the Bullfrog on staff here at Gary IMG_1723Thull Pools.  I’ve been representing Bullfrog Spas for a long time now, but I’m new to Gary Thull Pools.  I perch atop one of the many spas that reside here temporarily, before making their way to your home – their spa forever homes.  I’ve got a great view here, on the corner of this spa.  I can see Doreen as she tends to customers, mans the front desk, answers the phone and keeps the store running like a well-oiled machine.  I wish she’d bring me a snack every now and again.  What’s a frog to do?!  Mostly though, I’m happy to sit here in the showroom, greeting you as you enter.  It’s a terrific vantage IMG_1744point for all the colors and finishes of our Bullfrog Spas.  My personal favorite is the Penn State themed spa, with deep Navy blue tones, complemented with shades of pearly white.  It’s quite a looker!  I’m quite certain there’s a spa here that you will love.  If there isn’t, I’ve discovered that Gary or one of our other knowledgeable staff will help you customize and order your perfect spa.  Speaking of IMG_1738customization, Gary Thull Pools doesn’t limit their customization to colors, finishes and textures.  No sir!  IMG_1719Your future spa is made for you and only you, as you select the perfect Jet Pak for your ideal Bullfrog Spa experience.  I’ve hopped around these parts long enough to realize that there are currently sixteen different Jet Paks to choose from.  I’m hoping Doreen will stay out of the showroom so I can hop in the spa tomorrow to test the Jet Paks myself.  I’ve got my eye on the NeckMasseuse, as my neck gets a little cramped, holding my head in this position all day.  The Spinal Health is another on my list to try out.  I’ve overheard Doreen say how much she likes the RainShower Jet Pak and Gary favors the Deep Relief Jet Pak.  I wasn’t trying to eavesdrop, but I overheard the IMG_1726families who stopped by to wet test our Bullfrog Spa raving about the unique and superior experience each Jet Pak creates.  I’ve observed that you humans seem to be a rather diverse lot, which is why I adamantly recommend the Jet Paks.  Tall, short, somewhere in between, with lower back troubles, neck aches, foot pain, whatever plight or position you’re in, I’ve found that Gary Thull Pools has a Jet Pak for you and your constantly evolving needs.  I bounded out of the way the other day when Zeph was demonstrating in the showroom, but I needn’t have worried.  The Jet Paks are IMG_1734jetted spa seat backs that are completely interchangeable, even while your spa is full of water.  Zeph switched them out easily, right then and there.  My frog jaw was on the floor!  Once, when Doreen was busy with a customer at the chemicals display, I took a peek at the Bullfrog Spas diagram.  Those things are engineering masterpieces.  I’ve been around the spa business long enough to know that most spa diagrams look like “Spa-ghetti,” with their maze of plumbing and such.  It’s an efficiency nightmare, but not with our Bullfrog Spas.  They IMG_1733are the most efficient spas on the market, with a super low monthly operating cost.  I’m hoping you’ll hop over here soon.  It’s been a real pleasure meeting you.  I’m looking forward to greeting you in person ‘toad-day’ as you browse our Gary Thull Pools showroom.”
