How will I know if you are taking care of the pool as we agreed?
After every visit I leave behind a written receipt. The receipt allows you to see what day I visited, if you need to add water, if I need you to call me, or room for notes if there is something else that you should know.
What do you charge for weekly pool service?
The work load and location of each pool can vary greatly. I can give you a free estimate for pool service after I see the pool. There's no need to meet in person at this point if your'e too busy.

What will you do on each visit?
On each visit I'll do the following:
What charges are not included in the routine monthly service?
The following services are an extra cost:
Where is your business based?
My wife and I are residents of Petaluma. The majority of my work is based here though I do go up to Rohnert Park.
Is there a binding contract?
My customers can quit at any time.
I don't believe in having my customers "locked in" to service contracts.
Do you service spas/hot tubs?
I am happy to say that I do offer weekly service for spas. Spas need to be drained and refilled every 4-6 months. I service spas every week. If the spa is part of the swimming pool there isn't an additional cost for service.
The costs for spa service:
Can you take care of salt cell chlorinators?
Periodically your cell will need to be soaked in a mild acid solution and sprayed out. This will remove the build up inside the cell. You will know when the cell cleaning was performed because it will be written on the service receipt. There is not an additional charge for this routine cleaning.

Can you do a spring clean up for pools ?
To clean up a scummy pool I charge an hourly rate plus chemicals and equipment parts if needed. Call for a free estimate.
Do you send a monthly invoice?
At the end of every month I'll send out an invoice for that month by email. Your invoice will have a description of all charges. At the bottom of the
invoice you'll see total of overdue invoices plus the current invoice.
Payments are required within 25 days.
What else can unbalanced water do to my pool?
If you let the pH or alkalinity drop too low then the water becomes acidic the water dissolves plaster and metal parts in the pool equipment.
When pH or alkalinity drifts up, the water becomes alkaline and creates an environment where mineral deposits (scale) can form making the plaster ruff and abrasive while the heater and filter plugs up with calcium!
Weekly testing and chemistry adjustments that I perform avoids large repair expenses to the pool owner.
Can you get rid of swimming bugs in my pool?
Do you clean the filter?
Filter cleanings are required on an annual basis to keep the pool clean and healthy. They take about 1 1/2 hours and require the use of a chemical to strip the calcium, metal, and oil build up off of the filter element. Unfortunately this is not optional and is a very necessary expense to keep the pool from becoming green. Every year I send my customers a notice that I will be cleaning the filter in the coming months. This is usually in the Spring. The filter cleaning charge will then be on that month's invoice.
Are there ways to save money on electricity?
What is balanced water?
Water balance is composed of several key factors — pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and TDS. All of these factors are important, but none more so than pH.
pH is a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions in water. It is measured using a logarithmic scale from 0 to 14, with pH 7 being neutral. For pool water to be in balance, all factors must be in their proper range. That range may vary slightly depending on the finish of the pool and the average temperature of the pool water. The one value that never changes is pH. It must be maintained between 7.2 and 7.6 for a pool to be considered “balanced.”
Why is water chemistry important?
Just filtration, cleaning and sanitation are not enough — balancing pH (potential hydrogen) and alkalinity is vital.
Chlorination should keep germs and algae at bay but when pH and alkalinity is unbalanced, the chlorine can’t do its job because it becomes less effective at its primary task — killing bacteria and algae.
How will I know if repairs are needed?
As soon as I see the need to repair equipment I'll give you, the homeowner, a phone call describing the options you have available to you. Only when you are comfortable with a solution will I move forward with your decision to repair or
replace equipment to keep your pool clean and sanitary.
