We have a community pool in the mountains of western NC. We've learned a lot from TFP this season and have run the pool ourselves, but we may need to contract most of the work out to a CPO and use our TFP knowledge for monitoring and decision making more than daily upkeep. But we're not sure what a reasonable rate would be for a contract pool operator. Factors:
o 50K gal plaster pool. 50 years old, with some quirks that add daily effort. We've found that keeping it in top form requires about 2 hours a day.
o We're remote: solid half hour from nearest population center and its pool supply shops.
o We're talking contract, not W-2.
o Pool is open only from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
I know some of the folks on the forum are CPOs. Appreciate any guidance you might be able to give, especially a price range. (per hour?, per month?)
