Why do people have pools in the first place? The promise of fun, cooling off, relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. What dims in comparison to the bright glow of good times is the work involved in getting to experience that fun, relaxation and enjoyment. Having a pool takes work to clean and service, costing homeowners valuable belly-flop time.
Pool Scouts gives back the gift of time. Our technicians are trained – and trained again – in testing, monitoring, treating and servicing pools so customers don’t have to do it themselves. With ongoing service as well as help at the beginning and end of the swimming season, we make sure pools are always swim-ready!
With more than 10 million residential pools in the USA, the need for quality pool service is evident. Many homeowners, tired of the DIY-route (and not necessarily successful at it) are looking for professionals to relieve the burden of home-care, and specifically pool service and care. For stressed-out owners, just looking at a pool is no fun, especially when it’s unclear what lurks at the bottom of it. Pool Scouts service makes jumping back in irresistible.
Servicing a pool can be complex. Our training programs are designed to get you up to speed quickly, and keep you learning on an ongoing basis. Experts from all disciplines – operations, marketing, finance, and customer service – work with you to build your franchise and make it a success. You can be your own boss, but you’ll never go it alone as part of the Pool Scouts troop!
The Pool Scouts franchise model gives you the independence you’re looking for in running your own business, but it’s backed with a strong support team at the home office to provide guidance, answer questions and be there for you when you need a lifesaver. The day you sign on as a Pool Scouts franchisee, we are working for you. We help you navigate the waters to a successful and easy-to-manage operation.
