SwimRight Pool service contractors, serving Scottsdale, Arizona get asked all the time, “how much does pool service cost?” It’s a reasonable question, but the answer has many variables. There is not one-size-fits-all answer because there are so many variables from pool to pool and family to family.

 Why are there so many variables when it comes to pool maintenance and service costs? Why can’t there just be an answer of, “this is exactly how much it will cost to clean and maintain your pool?” The answer is a resounding… because! Let us explain.

How much does pool service cost?

In addition to the location of the pool there are many factors that go into the cost of pool service and why it varies by family to family and commercial site to commercial site. Here are a few of the variables that go into pool service costs:

  1. The size of the pool
  2. The shape of the pool
  3. The depth of the pool
  4. How many people use the pool
  5. How often the pool is used
  6. The accessories in the pool
  7. The material from which the pool is constructed (fiberglass is easier to clean than concrete, for example)
  8. The age of the pool
  9. The age and health of the pool equipment
  10. Whether you’re diligent in using a pool cover
  11. and others

When you’re shopping for a pool service contractor for your Arizona swimming pool, he will pay a site visit to be able to give you a more accurate price quote. He will take myriad items into consideration and give you a better cost estimate for a one-time cleaning and a summerlong contract price.

The costs factored into pool maintenance include:

  • The chemicals used
  • The age and condition of pool equipment. This will impact the way the water is circulated and filtered
  • The quality of the pool filter and its inner components
  • How much effort you want to put into the cleaning and maintenance of your pool between service visits

Prior to signing any contract ask for estimates from at least two or three potential maintenance contractors. Compare the quotes apples to apples and see if it wouldn’t be less expensive for a pool pro to care for your pool so in your free time you have minimal maintenance and can enjoy the pool rather than working on it!
