The average cost of pool service in Arizona is $105; with low costs ranging around $85 and high costs around $125 per month.
A lot of homeowners really don’t want to spend their time on maintaining their pools when they could be enjoying it with family and friends. It makes a lot sense to hire a professional pool service company to keep your pool looking clean and and is available to use year-round.
How Often Do They Come?
The majority of pool cleaning services usually come weekly, but you can sign up for bi-weekly, monthly, or even quarterly maintenance, if you like. You might be charged less per cleaning when you sign up for a weekly plan, because it’s easier to maintain when it is cleaned on a regular basis. If you decide to hire a pool cleaning service once a month or less frequently, then you need to prepare yourself to expect to do a lot of the maintenance yourself.
How Big Is Your Pool?
Almost all backyard pools don’t differ that much in size. But because part of the maintenance cost includes the cost of chemicals for your pool, you’ll end up paying more for a larger pool than you would for a small one. This difference may not be obvious when you hire a pool cleaning service, because you will still have to pay them for their time, regardless of what size your pool is.
What Pool Services Are Included?
This is where estimating a pool service cost can get a little tricky. It will all depend on which services are included by your pool service contractor. At the bare minimum, the pool company will empty your skimmer baskets, the Polaris bag, and pool pump baskets. They will in addition, check and balance the chemistry of the pool water.
Here is a list of extra services your pool company may include:
- Vacuum the bottom of your pool
- Skim the surface of your pool
- Brush the stairs and walls of your pool
- Clean the tiles at the pool’s waterline
- Adjust the water levels if they need it
- Maintain the pool filtration system
- Backwash the filter
- Prepare the pool for summer use
- Close the pool for the winter
Most pool companies will offer some of these services at the time of their routine visits. Some of these services are not needed as often as once a week and could be billed separately from other pool services. You probably can expect routine pool cleaning services will most likely cost you several hundred dollars every month. You may find someone who will do it for a lot less, but that means you’ll probably end up with low-quality service.
Do You Need Special Pool Services?
Some customers will hire pool service companies to get their pools ready for birthdays or for special occasions. A pool that has been ignored is generally going to cost more to clean than a pool that has been well maintained. If your pool needs repairs, then you can also expect additional costs.
