Weekly Pool Maintenance – $125

At Continental Pools, we like to say, “Worry Less and Swim More”. And our weekly maintenance programs are designed to allow just that. We’ll perform pesky tasks for you, including:

  • Check and adjust water quality including sanitizers and shock treatments
  • Provide and install balancing chemicals for pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness.
  • Clean skimmer and pump baskets & automatic cleaners
  • Backwash filters and check system operation
  • Conduct full-service cleaning including power vacuum, brush, and skimming
  • If you have a solid automatic pool cover and/or an automatic pool cleaner, ask about our $75 system and chemical service option.

Basic Spring Pool Opening – $450*

We’ll gladly take on the hassle of getting your pool open and ready for summer. Early spring is the optimal time as opening ‘cold’ creates the best water quality. (Algae blooms increase with increasing temperatures.)

With this package, we’ll perform the following handy services:

  • Remove and fold your safety cover & screw down deck anchors
  • Remove winter plugs & reassemble filter system for start up
  • Add booster doses of chlorine shock & adjust pH if needed
  • Check the system and equipment operation

*Please note: Pool Opening is a single visit service. We strongly advise you to schedule at least one follow up visit for best results.

Basic Fall Pool Closing – $450

Proper closing is critical if you want to protect your pool plumbing, equipment and waterline tile from winter weather. Our highly skilled service techs follow best practices to save you future headaches.

Here’s what we’ll do for you:

  • Lower water level as appropriate for pool/cover design
  • Blow out plumbing and add antifreeze to skimmers
  • Install winter plugs at pool fittings and remove drain plugs at equipment
  • Add initial algaecide treatment
  • Cover pool and store summer equipment

Winter Maintenance Program – $375

If you want to open your pool faster in the spring, let us take care of it this winter. Continental Pools will perform three (3) winter service visits designed to reduce start-up time.

Each of our visits includes the following services:

  • Water removal from top of solid cover & lower water level if needed
  • Add booster doses of chlorine shock & adjust pH if needed
  • Check the system and equipment & add antifreeze to skimmers if needed
