Jock Hamilton began in the industry as a pool service technician. Through years of research and experience, he developed the first balancing index for pools – the Hamilton Index. Over the following decades, he revolutionized pool care with his innovative line of swimming pool chemicals.

Jock ran United Chemical as an extension of himself. The culture of United Chemical reflects his core idealogy. We continue to pursue his core mission and values as we build upon what Jock started.
