Frequently Asked Questions About Pool Scouts
Do you offer pool repair services?
We specialize in ongoing cleaning and care for pools. Pool Scouts technicians are fully capable of doing most small repairs and will facilitate any larger repairs through their appropriate partner organizations.
How often is service offered?
Ideally, we will service your pool weekly in order to maintain a family-ready, crystal clear pool.
Why do I need to open/close my pool at the beginning or end of the season?
Many people don’t want to keep their pools open when they are not likely to be swimming. At Pool Scouts, efficiency is important and we see the value in saving time and money by closing your pool when not in use. But you have to do it the right way. There’s a process to follow in order to close the pool in a way that keeps it primed and ready for the summer. Our professional open and closing services will save you time and ensure a proper start or finish of the season.
What are the benefits of using a professional pool cleaning service vs. doing it myself?
We bring the chemicals and our expertise in water chemistry to your backyard, so you won’t have to wait in line at a pool store or handle any chemicals yourself! Our Scouts/technicians are fully trained in using our 8 parameter mobile water lab, and are equipped with the industry’s best pool cleaning equipment. We provide you with real time notifications when we are headed to your house and when your service is complete. Best of all, our system records your chemistry results, dosing amounts and even includes before and after pictures. We then combine everything into an easy to read report. We do the work to keep you swimming, Scout’s Honor!
How much does it cost?
Most pools cost around $75 per week to service under a weekly service plan. You can find pricing for other schedules and/or one-off services by clicking the “Request a Quote” button below, or on our home page.
Do you service commercial accounts?
Our primary focus and expertise is on residential pools. Contact your local office for more information.
Are you using dangerous chemicals?
Maintaining a pool necessarily requires the use of chemicals, which, if handled improperly, can pose a safety hazard. It’s best to have a trained Scout to safely handle them and ensure they work as intended. Our professional training ensures that every Scout understands how to measure and administer the precise timing and amount of chemical treatments required for each specific pool.
