    Need maintenance help - Relocation - House on the market - Lynchburg VA

    I have to move. What a bummer. So I need to find someone who can care for my pool while my house is on the market. I have to relocate so the house will be empty and the pool will need to be maintained. BBB method. Crystal clear water. Perfect readings. Only adding bleach on a regular basis to keep at the right level.

    I can't bear to think about having the "pool store" guys taking care of it. I cringe.


    As we all know the maintenance takes very little time. But it must be done. Anyone out there who is interested in this job? Let me know.

    I certainly will. I have to leave the area beginning Oct 1. Family remains behind and I could possibly use your son's help to close it late Oct when water temp hit 60 degrees. Family is staying in the area until my daughter who is a senior in high school is finished in late May. I will need help to: open pool in April, take the pool through the SLAM sequence, then maintain it till the property is sold.

    Let me know when he is the area so we can meet up.

    I am out in Goode VA Route 460 W about 20 mins from the Mall

    If your daughter is a senior in high school, she should be capable of maintaining the pool. You should have had her out there brushing and vacuuming years ago!

    Put it to her. It will give her an excuse to borrow the car -- she has to go tend the pool.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
