When you turn your swimming pool service over to a pro, you need to know that you’re getting someone who truly knows what he or she is doing and who has a great reputation in the pool service industry.

The swimming pool service contractors in Scottsdale, Arizona from SwimRight Pool Service & Repair are highly sought-after and are experienced and knowledgable about the many nuances of pool service and care. After all when you have a pool you want to be able to swim whenever you want right? You don’t want to spend your free time cleaning the pool nor do you want to hire a pool service contractor who is not reliable.

Spending so much time at home in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic meant that the family pool needed to be cleaned more often and you don’t want to spend all your time doing that, right? Also, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you run the risk of water chemistry that is out of balance and that can lead to cloudy water that is unable to swim in.

5 questions to ask a pool service contractor

We’ve put together this list of questions to ask your potential swimming pool service contractor — no matter whom you choose!

  1. Will you be coming out to do an inspection and give me an estimate? A pool service contractor could give you an estimate over the phone — “services range from X to Z” but without paying a visit to your home and looking at your pool, he cannot give you a quality estimate. Ask when he can come out.
  2. What services do you provide, which services are included AND what services do I have to pay extra for? You need to know what you’re getting before you sign a contract and what you’re not getting. Don’t wait and be surprised simply because you assumed something was included. Ask the potential contractor for a list of ALL the services he or she provides and what would be included in your particular contract.
  3. Are you licensed and insured to work in my state/municipality? Not all states require licensing but you definitely want to work with a pool contractor who carries insurance because this is a protection for you.
  4. How often will you visit? Do you bring your own equipment or do I need to have that on hand. Do you bring your own chemicals or do I need to buy and store them for your use?
  5. If the pool needs to have equipment replacement or repairs, does your potential contractor cover that? What is the hourly rate for those services (as they are not likely included in your maintenance contract)

Don’t rush into hiring a swimming pool service contractor. Take your time and also ask if they provide a free service visit so you can see the quality of their work.
