Hey gang, new member here. We just moved into a new house in a suburb of Dallas with a kidney shapped 20,000 - 25,000 gallon saltwater inground pool. The pool has all the goodies, heater, automation, spa (attached) water works......the prior owners of the house had this pool service from a pool guy that would service the pool weekly. He also does the next door pools, so basically we are on his route. First thing we did is get a variable speed pentair pump installed after the old single speed Hayward took a **** a week into our move.
Here are my basic question, please note I am very mechanically inclined :
we pay $120 per month for 4 visits. The visit consists of 10 minutes cleaning pump skimmer, the two pool skimmer buckets and scrubbing of pool concrete liner. Entire visit doesn't take more than 15 minutes. Does that seem a bit excessive? I have a test kit and saltwater levels are displayed on internal panel, so all good with levels.
Leslie's pool store is 10 minutes down the street and they do pretty much all sorts of DIY support. Seems the $120 per month is excessive considering the labor involved is rudimentary in each visit. Everything above and beyond is paid for separately.
Let me know your thoughts....
