More than fifteen million homes in the United States have swimming pools, and there are an estimated 400,000 more in commercial locations, such as apartment complexes, hotels, and gyms. These pools have to be cleaned and maintained regularly. But who is doing all of that cleaning? The answer is men and women just like you who wanted to own their own business. You, too, can take control of your destiny by purchasing your own pool maintenance franchise from America’s Swimming Pool Co. (ASP) today.

What Exactly Does a Pool Maintenance Technician Do?

As the owner of a pool maintenance franchise, you would travel to residential and commercial locations to service swimming pools. At the beginning of the season, you would prepare the swimming pool for its first swim. If the pool is empty, this means filling the pool with water and treating it with chemicals, then ensuring the pH balance of the pool is correct. Throughout the swim season, which could be year-round if you live in a warmer climate, you will clean the pool by removing leaves, bugs, and debris, check to make sure the pH balance is correct, and regulate the chemicals, if necessary. You might also be required to fix leaks, replace lights, and repair broken equipment.

How Much Money Does a Pool Maintenance Technician Make?

Pool service technicians who work for other companies average around $30,000 per year. But, if you are your own boss, you will naturally make more. Owners of America’s Swimming Pool Co.’s pool maintenance franchises make upwards of $40 to $50 per hour. Of course, as your own boss, you could make more or less. Your destiny is in your own hands.
