Nate the Grate!

So, I realize that this is about The Hagners and not just Elsa, so today I am posting a blog about Nate. For those of you who don't know, Nate works for Knorr Systems, Inc. as a service technician. He services, maintains and installs commercial pool equipment.

Well to make a long story short, a new skill was added to his repertoire...SCUBA diving!

Knorr paid to get their service techs PADI Certified so that they could dive to the bottoms of pools and replace/repair grates to comply with The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act.

The cool thing is, even though he is working in pools, he is Open Water Certified and can go diving in the ocean!

We are going to Hawaii in a couple of weeks and we've already booked a SCUBA trip in Maui (I'm certified, too). Can't wait!
