Extra Service Fees

We charge extra if we have to take twenty minutes to a half hour or more to pump off large amounts of water or remove a large assortment of leaves from your cover. It is always best to call ahead while scheduling so that we can accommodate this for you to save money!If your pool needs extra services we charge per half hour. Also we have a half hour minimum. If we have to come back to vacuum the pool, we would charge a service visit, and then for the vacuum. Most pools can be vacuumed in 30 minutes. It is always better to schedule everything at once so that we may service your entire needs.

Opening pools that have been closed for over two years or more...

It's tough to put a price on these services, as they usually require multiple visits and many man hours to get clean. But I would figure on a $600.00 minimum. This page represents the usual of our opening services and associated needs. It is not 100% accurate, as we frequently run into missing or broken o-rings, or cracked pump baskets and skimmers. Repairing these things, and really big pools will cost a bit more. Nobody likes costly surprises, even if they are relatively cheap. We do our best to communicate with every homeowner, and to treat people the way we would like to be treated.
