This whole pool thing is new to us and we need to set up weekly cleaning, chemicals, etc. I asked the sellers of our house and they gave me their guy but my husband wasn't very impressed - he never even set up the program for the filter. I've heard of $30-$40 range. Does that sound right? If anybody has a service they really like, please let me know. Thanks!

180 / month with Hayden Pools.
That's approx 4 cleanings per month @ 45. (this is final price i.e. includes taxes)

We've been searching as well recently. To be honest, I think any pool company can do a good job... but it all comes down to the tech who services your area.

We're currently with Prestige Pool, and when we first started with them, our weekly tech did a fantastic job, pool was always cleaned properly, never had any issues whatsoever. Now however, our old tech is gone, and a new guy has been doing the cleaning for the past few months... and he is awful. So bad, that we recently changed to having them just do the chemicals, and I take care of the cleaning myself. He never does anything, and he's a liar to boot. So, we've been shopping around for next season.

We recently had Blue Science come out to fix a skimmer leak. Their customer service was great, and I think we'll see about having them clean our pool next year and see how they do.

Our friends used Tropix Pools and really liked them. We used them once for plumbing repair, they were quick and did a good job.

Have you considered doing pool maintenance yourself? It is not too hard, especially if your water is already balanced and you just need to keep it that way. If you have a decent robot like Dolphin Nautilus or similar, it will take care of most of the cleaning. As for the chemicals - it is usually controlling chlorine and pH levels, other parameters would require adjustments less frequently. Google trouble free pool - it is a great resource for DIY pool maintenance.

My niece and nephew use AquaKool Pools. It's a small outfit and the owner Robert cleans our pool himself. They really raved about him and have used him since they moved to Frisco. Really nice guy and does a great job...from what we can see so far. We've had lots of questions and he answers every one. Next, we need to figure out our leak issue - previous owners didn't tell us there was a slow leak but this is more than evaporation. Never a dull moment with pools, I guess.

Look around the pump and equipment first. That's the most common and easiest to spot.
