On today’s Pinks and Blues episode we will be answering the following questions:

  1. What is the small blue pill in the bottom of a legionella sample bottle?
  2. I have a large territory that requires me to travel. On many days I find myself traveling back to accounts that are in the beginning of my route to check items I did a day or two before. What can I do to reduce that?
  3. Do I still need to come to AWT technical training since they stopped administering the test after those functions?
