|Becoming a PristineBlue®
Type of Business
The business must be a pool and/or spa related
enterprise with a commercial retail storefront.
While Earth Science Laboratories, Inc. does not
grant exclusive territories to PristineBlue®
dealers, we try to maintain a reasonable distance
between Authorized PristineBlue®
Dealers. Ultimately, the decision to add a new
dealership lies with the regional manager.
Accordingly, you are required to notify Earth
Science Laboratories, Inc. of any intention to open
a branch store or another retail outlet where you
expect to sell products in the PristineBlue®
line. Earth Science Laboratories, Inc. may decline
to provide products to you that you intend to sell
from retail outlets that may interfere with the
markets of an established dealer. This policy
protects you and your market from outside dealers
moving into a customer base and a territory that you
may have already developed. Additionally,
Dealers wishing to sell PristineBlue®
products on the Internet must use the same web
domain name as on the Authorized PristineBlue®
To become an Authorized PristineBlue®
Dealer, an initial purchase of a Dealer Start-Up
Package is required. Due to price changes and new
product availability, the configuration of the
Dealer Start-Up Packages changes from year to year.
Contact our administrative offices at
800-257-9283 for the current Start-Up Packages and
Authorized Dealers must have on staff, at least one
Applicator. Training for Certified Applicator status
is available through self-study courses or on-site
seminars. Because we want our dealers to be informed
of current policies and technical advice, we ask
that at least one representative of your store be a
Certified Applicator trained in the last 12 months.
Discounts and Reorders
Dealership and Credit
A credit application must be completed and returned
even if the dealer chooses to do business on a
C.O.D. or prepay basis. The credit application must
be filled out completely. Earth Science
Laboratories, Inc. bases its credit decisions on
credit history information received from the listed
trade references. If credit is denied, the dealer
may wish to prepay for orders in lieu of orders
being shipped C.O.D. Prepayment can be made with
Visa, Mastercard, Discover or mailing the payment
prior to shipment.
Standard terms are Net 30 with approved credit. Late
charges are assessed at the rate of 1.5% per month
and will be added to past due balances.
Early Buy Terms
Dealers who place “Early Buy” orders of $5,000 or
more before December 31 with delivery the following
spring are allowed special payment terms.
All reorders must be in case lots. Orders less than
$300 will be subject to a $10 handling fee in
addition to regular shipping charges.
As an Authorized PristineBlue®
Dealer, your store name, address and phone number
will be listed on the website of PristineBlue®.
One can put in a zip code and the nearest Authorized
Dealer will pop up.
This program is designed to motivate and reward your
employees to start up or convert a pool or spa

information on the guidelines for this program.
