If you love the idea of a perfectly clean pool but hate the ongoing maintenance that comes with pool ownership, there’s an easy solution. Professional pool cleaners offer a convenient way for pool owners to keep their commercial or domestic sparkling clean without all of the efforts. Of course, to ensure the best standard possible you need to hire a good quality pool cleaning company. Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at some of the things you should look for when hiring pool cleaners.
Positive reviews and feedback
It’s important that you find a pool cleaner with a good reputation. To get feedback, get some word of mouth recommendations from other people from pools. You can also go online to check out reviews and testimonials. You’ll quickly be able to get a good idea as to the level of service you can expect from a particular company.
Expert servicing and maintenance
This is an obvious one but you need to ensure that a pool cleaner is offering expert cleaning and maintenance. This includes routine maintenance such as backwashing, testing the water pH, scrubbing the surfaces, emptying the skimmer basket, and scooping the surface of the water. It should also include additional services including checking the pool systems to ensure that they’re operating effectively.
It’s important that you choose a pool cleaning company who adopts a professional approach. You’ll be able to get an idea as to the quality of a company during your first interaction over the phone. You should also take notice about how the technicians present themselves and how they follow up following a service. Do they wear uniforms and represent the company professionally? Do they follow up on communication quickly and provide a formal report?
Additional advice and troubleshooting
Along with carrying out general cleaning and maintenance, a good pool technician will also be happy to provide advice and troubleshooting for your pool. This could be questions that you have about the quality of your pool water or advice about new pool equipment. These professional recommendations are invaluable for the smooth running of your pool and means you won’t be stuck with equipment which doesn’t fit the bill.
Expert installation of pool equipment
If you do need to find new equipment for your pool, you don’t want to have to find another service to do the actual installation. A good professional service will be able to carry out the installation of your pool equipment and give you the rundown on how to operate it correctly. They should also be contactable for troubleshooting if you’re having issues.
Appropriate accreditation and training
If you want to be confident that you’ve found a quality pool company, check that they’re accredited with the Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) WA. The pool technicians should also be property trained and receive ongoing additional training and supervision. Don’t forget to ask questions about the level of experience that a certain pool company has so you can be confident that they know what they’re doing.
Ability to carry out repairs
It’s not just about keeping your pool clean. A good pool cleaning service will also be able to carry out repairs on your pool equipment to ensure they continue to run as efficiently as possible. Rather than opting straight to recommending expensive new equipment, your technician should be looking at repairs which could prolong the life of your existing equipment
