Swimming Pool Maintenance
A Swimming Pool Maintenance Service is usually not difficult when the pool is in good repair, and if you like working outdoors, it can give you a low key, enjoyable occupation. Pools that have been neglected can be problematic to get back in condition, so it will take some training, so consider working for a local service so you can to learn the ropes, before starting out on your own.
It isn't that expensive to start, but you will need a truck or trailer and a safe place to store your chemicals, supplies, and equipment. Start by checking your local area to make sure there are enough pools in your area to support your service. Then go to your local courthouse and inquire about required licenses and permits.
You will also need to set up liability insurance and a LLC (Limited Liability Corporation) to protect you in case of misfortune. You may need to get your Pool Cleaning Certification so training may be required. About half of the states do not require certification but a training course is a good idea if you plan on making a career in pool cleaning. Having the proper training is strongly recommended.
Some county health departments give courses so check with them first. Training is also given by the National Swimming Pool Foundation, the American Lifequard Association, and the Aquatic Training Institute as well.
You can find a list of approved swimming pool maintenance courses at CDC.com too. Courses can be found online which makes training easier to work into your schedule, but a sit down class allows you to ask questions and usually learn more.
Training includes learning about the chemicals and required equipment you will need in cleaning pools and spas. You will also be taught how to figure how much water loss you have because of temperature, etc. You will also learn the rate of the flow of your water system, as well as other important data needed to set up a professsional program of pool and spa maintenance.
Once you get your business license and tax I.D. number, find a wholesale pool supply outlet and get your swimming pool supplies. You will need pool testing equipment, a skimmer, and other items. Don't forget your sunscreen and sunglasses.

You will need business cards, invoices, contract forms, an organizer, and other stationary with your business name and contact information printed on them. Check your local prices as well as Vista Print.com for your swimming pool maintenance service supplies.
