I have friends that have been to my pool a number of times and have seen pictures on social media of my kids/my back yard/ random folks in my pool pretty regularly. They are close enough friends that if she needed help w her kids at 3am, she could call me and I would come. She has always joked that if they ever buy a house with a pool that they are hiring me to tend it as they have never seen a pool as clean and sparkly as mine (thanks y'all!!!). I always said I couldn't do it unless they move to my town because pools are living beings that need tended to regularly. She called me earlier in the week to tell me that they are trying to close on a house in my town and asking me if I would consider doing their pool at least through the rest of swim season here (I am in Texas, that could be several more months). They have never had a pool and she says that she has no desire to manage one.
I could realistically stop by every week day without adding any real chaos to my life as the house will be near my daughter's school (and she is already at "optional" camps there every day - and by "optional" I mean if you don't come you can't play when schools starts). Weekends would be more challenging, but maybe I wouldn't have to go on weekends? I never considered helping someone else with their pool, so I didn't really have anything to say about it other than "ummmm, let me think about that."
Also, my pool is in ground, and she is trying to close on a house with an above ground pool (not many of those in our area). I am sure it all works about the same, but it does make me feel a little more nervous about it.
Thoughts on it?
