the price that are mentioned in this post are absolutely way to low. maybe in 1980 the only way a business could even come close to these prices is if everything was under the table and he lived next door. completely unreasonable

Pool Cleaning in Ottawa Ontario
Amount: $320.00 per month

Sq Ft of Pool: 400Firm:
I clean pools and I'm good at what I do (very meticulous). If I hire somebody at $15.00/h + gas + insurance + travel time + chemicals then I'm probably making $50 per visit. I could probably charge a little less but my customers are happy to pay it and nobody has every complained. There are some companies around here that charge the same and the guys have no clue what they're doing.

Pool Maintenance
Amount: $165.00 per month
Posted by: Sherman in Tallahassee, FL.Posted: November 27th, 2011 11:11AM
Does the pool need maintenance every week during the winter? The pool in in Tallahassee,FL and not in use during the winter (4-5 mths). There is no cover on it. The $165 isn't a bad price, but it's a rental house and I'd really like to cut expenses if I can. Maybe every other week?

I used Premier Pool Management and they were not only reasonable but were also very professional and provided excellent pool services. For a medium size pool of 1296 square feet the charge was $380.00 for the Premier Package which included:
- Pool vacumming
- Pool surface skimming
- Filter backwashing
- Skimmer basket cleaning
- Tile cleaning
- Chemical testing
- Pump basket cleaning
- Pool equiptment inspection
- Chemicalization (chlorine & pH management)
- Pool walls & floor brushing
- Detailed inspection/report
They also provided great deals on pool maintenance service! Well worth it! Best pool management company I've used so far and will definitely use them again.

Pricing
Amount: $350.00 per month

Sq Ft of Pool: 35000Firm: NEpools
pool closing start at $350 in the NEast however Pricing varies by area and region in the south (FL,GA,SC, ect) weekly visits are cheeper at like $40-$60 a visit because their season is longer or all year round .In the NE weekly visits run from $75-$95 weekly. I tell my customers a pool is like an expensive vintage car (Corvette,Porsche,Ferarri) its a luxury and very expensive to maintain. you dont see pools in the Ghetto do you? No its a luxury. And yes to repair as they see during a weekly visit is normal if it wasnt repaired chances are you would call in a few days and say my pool is green and its the pool companys fault. Also most company include Chemicals with their weekly service rate except for chlorine or shock, witch youd spend well over $250 on pool chems if you went to a store so your better off letting the pros do it for a weekly rate.

maintenance price
Amount: $350.00 per month
Posted by: Heartland Pool & Spa in Hartland, WI.Posted: August 23rd, 2010 04:08PM
We do pool maintenance and $400 a month is NOT
out of line. We charge $95 for a trip charge
and the 1st 1/2 hour for a normal service charge.
Paying a worker to add chemicals and to clean once a week is expensive. We don't make very
much money after all expenses are paid.

They will use a blower and blow the deck, each visit as adding chemicals. I feel it is over priced also.

I just get the feeling that I'm being overcharged for the service done to my pool. I just cant seem to get this guy to come down on the price. Very close to changing pool service providers.

In regards to the previous post: You absolutely are paying way too much! You need a new pool service. I am a professional pool service owner, CPO and CPI certified and my average monthly rate is $125 a month for a pool your size more like $105.

Their opening service is $225, vacumm, 1/2 hour, $90, weekly maintenance, basically throw some chemicals, $85, AND, they do the repair work without informing us the problem, just leave us a bill and charge whatever they think they should. Is this the common practice of the industry?
