The 5 C’s Of A Good Swimming Pool Company
Having your own swimming pool is a must in the state of Texas. Not only is it a place where you can cool off, it’s a place for family togetherness and fun. If you own a pool, chances are you spend a good deal of time in it, which means that you also need to clean it on a regular basis. When things get busy, cleaning can sometimes fall to the wayside, which never leads to anything good! This is why it’s so important to have a swimming pool company that you can trust to maintain and clean your pool regularly.
When it comes to finding a swimming pool company in and around Spring, a Google search can give you plenty to choose from. What makes some better than others, and how do you know which one will best suit your needs?
We think that there are “5 C’s” that you should look at to determine if a particular swimming pool company is right for you.
1. Chemical Experience. The right swimming pool company will have plenty of experience with various chemicals that are used for cleaning and maintenance. The wrong chemical, or the right chemical used incorrectly, can cause damage and sometimes illness. No matter what the line or brand is that they use, they should have extensive knowledge of every product to keep the pool clean and the pool-users safe.
2. Captivating Website. You might not think that this is an important factor, but in the age of technology, a company’s website it often the first thing that introduces them to a perspective customer. A website should be clear and easy to navigate without looking over crowded and jumbled. A swimming pool company that displays who they are, what they do, and how to request more info is good; a company that also provides testimonials, pictures, and pricing is even better.
3. Credentials. Every company should have enough of these to make you feel confident in their abilities, and their list of certifications and licenses should be upon request. Look for those who are accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). They might also be approved by HomeAdvisor, be NSPF Certified, or be a member of the APSP (Association of Pool & Spa Professionals).
4. Contact And Service. This is a no-brainer. Customer service should be considerate and unparalleled. There should be plenty of contact information available, such as a phone number, a contact form on the website, and an email. Social media contact is a bonus, especially if they have a presence on Twitter and Facebook.
5. Customer Testimonials. These should be available upon request, and you should be able to find them on the website. Look at what people are saying and really listen. Experience is the best teacher. A long list of positive referrals and praises means that this is one company who knows how to do it well–and do it right.
