We have a rental house in a different state (NC). In years past we have had a pool company open, clean and close our pool at our (owner) expense because of the condition of the pool plaster. We did a refurb this spring which remedied that issue.
Two primary questions:
1. Who is responsible for opening, closing, and maintaining your pool?
2. What is the wording in your lease that covers such?
In particular, looking for info on who pays for cost of chemicals and test kit refills?
Who provides the brush, vacuum, hose, etc?
What happens if the pump dies (due to age or something freezing) or the pool is suddenly losing water?
We are considering a scenario wherein everything is the responsibility of the tenant, but if they use the TFP method, we will supply one full test kit per year, the vacuum (not automated), leaf net and brush. But what happens if when they move out the pool is a green disaster? Are they charged a fee? How much?
Whichever way your lease swings, thanks for your input and time!
