If you’ve decided to get the professionals involved in the cleaning and servicing of your pool, it’s a smart move – maintaining a pool can be hard work and pool technicians make the whole process easy. However, before you give the go-ahead for your professional servicing, there are a few questions you should ask so you can be confident that you’re receiving quality service.
1. What’s included in the service?
Before you book in your cleaning service, check what will actually be included when your technician arrives. Not only should thorough cleaning occur, you also want additional maintenance items such as water testing, backwashing, systems checks and the addition of chemicals to take place. Ensure you’re being offered a thorough service which provides value for money.
2. Are you insured?
Although you would hope nothing would go wrong when getting your pool serviced, make sure your pool service can offer you peace of mind with the right insurance. Check that public liability insurance is in place so you’ll be covered financially if inadvertent damage occurs. Unfortunately, many small operators don’t have this cover in place.
3. Is the company accredited?
With so many pool cleaning businesses out there, it’s can be difficult to narrow down your search. In the first instance, you should always check that the service you’re considering has the proper accreditation. In WA, that means accreditation through SPASA (Swimming Pool and Spa Association) WA which would indicate that they’re a reputable company.
4. Do I need to commit to a regular schedule?
One of the main things you want when you choose a pool service is the ability to be flexible. While you may be keen to commit to regular fortnightly or monthly servicing, you might simply want the ability to contact them at the beginning of the season, before a special event, or just when the pool is looking especially dirty. Make sure there’s a focus on providing flexible servicing according to your needs.
5. Will they be able to do repairs?
When it comes to pool servicing, most people want a company who will do general cleaning and maintenance to get your pool looking up to standard. However, you could also find yourself in a situation where more complex repairs are required for your pump or filter. Check that the service you’re considering is a one-stop-shop and have the necessary experience to do repairs.
