Why Won’t My Pool Maintenance Guy Fix My Pool While He’s Here?

pool in need of repair

You may have noticed that your pool or equipment may be in need of repair. Your pool maintenance tech performs regular service, so he can just fix your pool then, right? Probably not. If your pool is in need of repair, that requires a separate service call. Here’s why.

Maintenance Routes Are on a Set Schedule

One of the first reasons why your pool maintenance guy can’t fix your pool is because our entire route is on a set schedule. We schedule each stop to last a certain amount of time to accomplish a certain list of tasks. If your maintenance technician has to stop and make an unexpected repair to your pool — one that could take several hours — that cuts into the amount of time we’ve scheduled for another paying customer whose pool also needs maintenance.

Your Pool Maintenance Guy May Not Have the Parts Needed

On top of not having enough time, the maintenance tech may not even have the tools and parts needed to repair your pool. Plus, some parts may need to be special ordered to fix your pool and that alone will take time. If you think you may need a pool repair, call us at 717-774-6613, or visit our website to request service for that specific issue. One of our service technicians will assess the extent of the repair and come up with a list of tools, materials, and parts needed to properly repair your pool.

Some Repairs Require Specialization

Some pool equipment, like Pentair, requires a pool repair technician specialized in repairing it.

Not all pool repairs are a quick fix! As stated above, some repairs could be more extensive and take longer to address. Because of this, some repairs require specialization that pool maintenance professionals don’t have. This is especially true depending on whether you have a fiberglass pool or a vinyl liner pool. Some of the tools and parts that repair one will not repair the other.

It’s best to call in a repair expert to properly handle the repair, and leave maintenance to the maintenance experts. 

What Can Your Pool Maintenance Guy Do?

However, what you can do is ask your pool maintenance professional about the repair while he’s there. He may be able to confirm if a repair is needed. And he may be able to answer a few of your questions. He just won’t have the time, parts, and specialization to repair your pool that day.
