Pool Service

Pool service and repairTown & Country Pools has expanded from Pool Design and Build to include Pool Maintenance and Repairs. Our Maintenance and Repair Department is comprised of hand-selected, experienced, and trained personnel whose main goal is to save you time and money. Our pool maintenance service team is available weekly or bi-weekly so that your pool is waiting for you to enjoy it rather than maintaining it! And our repair team has a “fix-it” mentality and will do their best to repair equipment rather than just suggesting that you need to replace it.

Town & Country Pools has built its outstanding reputation in the Design and Build realm and is continuing that tradition in Maintenance and Repair. We strive to handle your service needs with the goal of adding each of you to our growing list of satisfied service clients!

Town & Country Pools provides a comprehensive service program that includes all essential chemicals and labor without the confusion of a’ la carte services.

Winter Watch:

To keep an eye on your investment in the off-season we recommend winter watches at least every other month until the pool is opened in the spring. While not required, it helps to protect the pool and generally allows for a smoother spring opening.

  • Remove section of cover and check water level
  • Lower water level if needed
  • Test water chemistry
  • Add chemicals as needed
  • Check pool cover anchoring system
  • Replace damaged, anchors, straps, springs or water bags if needed (additional charge for parts)

Winter Watch –  $105.00

Pools with solid covers or automatic covers should have a functional automatic cover pump on the cover
at all times to prevent water build-up. This is a safety concern. Pumping off the cover between Winter
Watch visits is not the responsibility of Town and Country Pools as a part of the Winter Watch service.
Automatic cover pumps are available and are highly recommended.
Town and Country Pools can provide and install one (for an additional charge) at closing if you request it
