To find out exactly how much it will cost to get your pool inspected by a professional, contact pool inspectors near you and request free cost estimates.

How much does a pool cleaning service cost?

To get a more accurate estimate, contact several pool cleaners in your area and ask for price quotes.

How much does it cost per year to maintain a pool?

It will cost around $1,032 per year for a weekly pool cleaning service. This price will increase for one-time services, ranging between $150 and $300. This is why it’s generally a good idea to find a pool cleaning company that can do lower-priced weekly maintenance. Ultimately, the cost you pay will vary by your pool’s size, the chemicals needed and the type of service you request.

How do I schedule a pool inspection?

To schedule a pool inspection, begin by searching for local pool inspectors on Thumbtack. When you find a pool inspector you’re interested in hiring, check their availability and choose a date and time. You can also ask the pool inspector to suggest other dates. Fill out the short survey about your pool inspection, and the inspector will get back to you to confirm the day and time of your inspection.

What are the advantages of hiring a professional pool cleaner?

Hiring a professional pool cleaner in your area has many advantages. For one, the service saves you time and effort. A pool cleaner can also detect potential problems early on before they become expensive fixes down the road.

The pool expert can give you advice on things you can do to better maintain your pool, and your swimming pool may retain its value longer.

What are the advantages of hiring a professional pool inspector?

Hiring a professional swimming pool inspector comes with a number of different benefits. It helps homebuyers and owners understand what condition the pool is in, which will help with purchasing decisions, negotiations or simply budgeting for repairs. A pool inspector can also give an accurate assessment of the pool’s mechanical and electrical processes. Perhaps most important is the ability to detect problems in their infancy, so they don’t become expensive repairs down the road.

How long does it take to clean a pool?

The time it takes to clean a swimming pool depends heavily on the pool’s condition and size. Pools that receive regular weekly cleaning should take less time to clean, even if the cleaning includes skimming, scrubbing, applying chemicals and vacuuming. However, if you’re just opening your pool for the season, the process may take longer. 

When searching for pool cleaners near you and gathering cost estimates, ask them how long they expect each cleaning will take.

What do they check during a swimming pool inspection?

A pool inspector can help you address any pool repairs you may need, and they can help you understand your pool's overall condition. Often, they will start by checking for general safety factors, such as the fencing or decking around the pool. They’ll also look at the pool's surface and interior to inspect it for cracks or chipping. Other important checks happen on the pumps, filters, heaters, and other accessories in and around the pool to make sure they’re working properly.

What chemicals do you need to clean a pool?

The main categories of pool chemicals include sanitizers, oxidizers, water balancers, and specialty chemicals. Sanitizers (like chlorine and bromine) disinfect pool water. Oxidizers are a second type of sanitizing chemical meant to kill bacteria and algae. Water balancers keep the pH (acidity) level of the water in the correct place, as well as maintain the proper “hardness” — that is, levels of calcium and other elements. Other specialty chemicals include clarifiers, flocculant, algaecides and more.

If you don’t know how to properly use pool cleaning chemicals, consider hiring a professional pool cleaner to help you maintain your pool.

How often should you clean a pool?

The ideal schedule for pool cleaning is at least once per week. This schedule provides the ideal balance of not allowing problems to grow while still making each cleaning worth it. Weekly pool cleaning also helps you avoid expensive repairs in the future. By spot-cleaning when needed, such as skimming leaves and debris out of the pool or scrubbing away an algae spot, you can keep your pool in prime condition. It’s also recommended that you schedule a pool cleaning after any unusual scenarios, including hot weather, a pool party or a pet jumping in the pool.

I called yesterday concerning the condition of our inground pool. The pool was serviced by another company. They scheduled an appointment for today. Arrived on time and Gilbert explained the issues and went to work to bring the pool back to a satisfactory condition.

After building a new deck our pool was filthy and took pressure washing before the acid wash. Just Pool Services went the extra mile.

I received several pool cleanings where they did not add chlorine to the pools. They also add additional charges to your bill for bringing out a technician without letting you know or asking if that’s ok. Very rarely do they brush the pool. Better communication would significantly improve the service and letting go of the workers who are not adequately treating the pools. On my final bill they included 2 cleaning services for payment which were not performed.

I highly recommend Alex with all of your swimming pool needs. I had a difficult time finding a company that services my side of town. I found Alex on Thumbtack, gave him a call, and he scheduled to come by the following day to inspect my pool and give me a quote. Alex is very knowledgeable about pool repairs, installations, and maintenance. He provides impeccable service and I am overly thrilled with how my pool looks. 5 STARS ⭐️

This company is fantastic! I was in a tight spot and they were able to come the next day and service my pool. They did an impressive job cleaning the pool and getting rid of all the stuff that settled on the bottom. I highly recommend and am setting up a recurring appointment for them to come service it on a regular basis.

I was very happy with their service. They replace the skimmer. The price was reasonable - similar to another quote. They were on time and responsive. They even went the extra miles by reinstalling the pool light that came loose. I highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future for other pool renovation.

Excellent service! Mark knows his stuff and what I like best he gave me options that will save a lot of money in the long run! He's definitely out to make sure you're satisfied rather than just take your money! I would refer to anyone with a pool!
