ZAGERS’ CORE VALUES
At Zagers, our specialty stores thrive on building trusted relationships in the community. We do this by being the neighborhood expert that customers can count on for honest advice. We know that we may not always know the answers, and that’s okay too. “I don’t know, but I will find the answer for you” is better than guessing and giving misinformation. We are always eager to find solutions for water issues and make product recommendations based on what is best for the customer, not the bottom line. We understand that our reputation and good word of mouth will allow us to prosper long term.

Anyone can quickly search and buy items online so when a customer walks in our store we want them to be treated like gold so that it doesn’t even cross their mind. We hear all the time that customers would rather support small business than have the giants take over. Great customer service is our best weapon that will keep customers returning and our doors open. This means we greet customers with a smile, escort them to what they need, answer questions eagerly, and speak highly of all staff and departments. If a customer is directed to another dept or team member, we follow through and communicate next steps and resolution with all staff involved with the interaction. If a quote is promised to a customer in 2 hours, we make every effort to send it in 1. If we say we will be at a customer’s house in 2 hours and we are unexpectedly delayed, we call and reset expectations.

- Exceeds Expectations
- Pays Attention to Details

The only way we win is if EVERYONE works together. We are a supportive work family. We lift up those who fall down, celebrate milestones, and are eager to help. We don’t let things fester. When there are disagreements, we have the courage to hash out a resolution. There are times when we must do things we don’t want to do. Regardless, there is no complaint department. If an issue is raised, we come prepared with possible solutions. Everyone works together to take care of one thing, the customer. It doesn’t matter who is “supposed” to do what. Our busy season is much like a boat in a storm, making cooperation and reliability very important. It’s an “all hands-on deck” kind of spirit from the first pool opening to the last pool closing. And with the Zagers Team you are guaranteed a lot of laughter and fun along the way.
