Been reading up on BBB and Pool School, just got a new IC20 generator and I think I have everything down. The pool is crystal clear thanks to all the advice I've received. All the replies/responses I've gotten from other TFP members has been truly heartening.
Here's the problem:
We've had the same pool guy since day one and he's done an awesome job. Always on time, always available on the phone, very friendly, etc, BUT he charges $100 a month for a weekly service (no charge for chemicals)
How do I go about letting him go, assuming I'm as on top of all this as I think I am? Even in the worse case scenario, I can't imagine I'd EVER spend $100 in a month even adding in gasoline, travel time to get supplies, etc., once I go it alone. Is there a FAQ that covers the tactful 'downsizing' of your pool guy, especially if you're a non-confrontational sort like me?
