Pool maintenance contracts
If you are not in your gite all the time, or rent it out, we recommend for your peace of mind an annual contract. This provides you with the assurance that your pool is looked after and pristine clean at all times. This service includes opening up the pool in the late spring followed by weekly visits throughout the season and closing the pool for winter. Bi-weekly visits in winter ensure your pool is maintained even when it is not in use. During the visit (winter or summer) we will check and maintain water quality, ensuring a healthy pH balance, clean the pool, add chemicals as necessary, back wash / clean filters, check any alarms fitted (monthly), check, clean and if necessary replace skimmer baskets, check pump, valves and filter operation, and heater operation (if installed). To ensure the highest water quality we use a professional portable laboratory to test your pool water. We record all readings for reference. Small incidental repairs are included within the contract – if larger works are discovered to be necessary we will report and quote you for the cost. At the end of the season we prepare the pool for the winter, add winter chemicals and drain the filters and pipe work. We put on the winter cover and remove any security device. All pool products are included, your pool equipment to clean the pool will be evaluated at the start of the year to make sure that all is in working order and replacements provided as required.
Seasonal contracts are also available just for summer or winter periods, with charges included for opening and closing (winterizing) as required.
