Prepping Your Pool: 4 Ways to Get Ready for Summer

Memorial Day is right around the corner. The unofficial beginning of summer, the weekend is often the first time families will be eager to take a dip in the pool this year. After all, is there any better way to celebrate the holiday than by grilling out by the pool? We think not. As your tenants prepare their swimsuits and grocery shopping lists, it's time you got your pool in shape. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends prioritizing your pool, as residents will likely to be eager to enjoy this favorite amenity.

 

May is a busy time of year for pool cleaning and maintenance companies, so be sure to schedule a time for a professional to stop by as soon as possible. Fail to do so in time and you might have to keep the pool area locked a little longer than usual. That's a fast track to negative reviews, so be sure to make this a priority.

 

While you're bringing in the experts, consider having an inspector come by to take a look at the structures surrounding your pool. Over time, decks and patios can become worn down and aged in the sun. Should a tenant hurt themselves because of the lack of maintenance, you could be facing a lawsuit.

 

Consider, too, investing in extra training for employees on pool maintenance. While you'll want to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals, teaching your staff about the basics of pool care can save you big bucks in the long run. At the very least, you should review safety policies and procedures in case of an emergency.

 

Be sure you know the regulations for your area before opening your pool up for use this summer. Depending on the state or county in which your property is located, you could be required to follow strict inspection laws. Be sure to keep up with current state and local regulations so you can ensure compliance at all times. If you don't want to bother keeping up with ever-changing regulations, consider working with a pool management company.

 

No matter how you decide to prepare and maintain your pool this summer, doing so can ensure your tenants are happy. After all, there's nothing more frustrating than a glittering pool locked behind a fence on a hot day!
