Are you taking on a new role in 2020 in which you have to be responsible for a commercial swimming pool? Are you looking to replace the current commercial pool service contractor you’re working with? We have tips on how to hire a commercial pool contractor in 2020.
The swimming pool contractors from SwimRight Pool & Spa Repair in Scottsdale, Arizona explain what to look for when you’re hiring a commercial swimming pool service pro for your hotel, apartment, school or community pool. The reason many facility owners contract with a pool service company is because they either don’t have the time or the knowledge to take on pool maintenance. When you’re managing a facility with a swimming pool, clean water is crucial to the health of everyone who uses the pool and because so many people use it, it is more difficult to maintain and balance than a personal family pool.
When you have a commercial swimming pool you’re responsible for A LOT of pool traffic and the health of those who use it.
How to hire a commercial pool contractor in 2020
What tasks, at a bare minimum, will a commercial pool contractor do for your facility swimming pool?
- Care for pool equipment
- Test the pool water chemistry
- Keep water levels and chemicals balanced and the water clean and bacteria-free
- Offer emergency pool equipment breakdown service
- Assure the swimming pool is in compliance with local, state and federal regulations
Ask for at least three estimates from three different pool service contractors when trying to narrow down your choices and hiring the best contractor for your facility. Compare the estimates. If there are questions on the pricing or tasks outlined in the contract by the potential commercial provider ask for an explanation. You want to compare apples-to-apples.
Does the commercial contractor provide 24/7 services? If so what is the cost and what is the usual response time? Are emergency visits factored into the estimate? If more than one client has an emergency is there adequate staff for the clients?
Don’t forget to ask for, and check references
Once you have narrowed down your choices of commercial pool contractors, ask for and check references. You need to make certain they can do and will do, what they have listed on their estimate.
