Sandy KingOrigins Of Symbiont Service And Its Geothermal Heating Device

The origins of Symbiont and its geothermal heating device began when Sandy King, now owner and president of Symbiont Service Corp was in college pursuing an oceanographic engineering degree.

The first symbiont was build in 1983 by Sandy, with help from her father, Roy King founder of Symbiont Service Corp. “I needed a project for my degree and wanted to investigate geothermal state-of-the-art pool heating methods,” Sandy said.

“In 1983, as part of my project I built a prototype meter and used an aquaculture tank filled with tilapia.”

The project consisted of filling two identical tanks with fish, heating one with geothermal technology and leaving the other aquaculture tank unheated. “Each tank had the same number of fish,” she said. “We compared the growth rate of the fish before and after the project was complete.” The experiment ran from autumn until the end of April the following year. “Fish usually hibernate during the winter,” Sandy explained. “The fish in the heated tank were warm, happy and grew throughout the winter months.”

Her experiment proved the viability of geothermal energy based on the size and health of the fish in the heated tank as compared to the fish in the non-heated tank. “This project was the first my dad and I worked on, back in 1983,” she said. “Here we are today more than twenty years later providing geothermal heating technologies to swimming pool owners and operators.”

Sandy and the team at Symbiont Service Corp install geothermal units and Sandy and two of her team members also provide continuing education credits to condominium association managers. She will come to your site to provide the state-recognized CEU courses.
