Splish Splash Into Summer . . . And A Successful Pool Season

Summer Pool Tips

As summer rapidly approaches and temperatures in many parts of the country quickly climb into the 100’s, few amenities in a residential community will be enjoyed more than the community swimming pool. Swimming pools have the potential to be a major influencer of home values, attract prospective home buyers to the community, provide a central gathering place and help foster new friendships among neighbors.

For association board members, pools can be more than just fun and games. The maintenance and management of these community assets can be a major time investment and become the cause for significant consternation, if done incorrectly. Fortunately for board members, professional community managers and pool technicians can eliminate nearly all of the headaches associated with having a community pool. Below are a few tips for effective pool management.

Know the Regulations

The regulatory body for public and semi-public pools and spas will vary from state to state; however, in many cases the county is responsible for creating and enforcing these regulations. Some municipalities will also play a role in the enforcement of pool and spa regulations. No matter which agency dons the regulatory authority you can rest assured that there are plenty of regulations in place and failure to adhere to any one of them may leave your community with a temporarily closed pool—a major frustration for boards and homeowners alike.

Reserve Appropriately

Aside from a community’s landscape, there are few assets as noticeable to homeowners as their community pool. In many cases, it is their oasis to relax after a long hot day. Poorly funded reserves can lead to an inability to keep the pool in good repair and condition, potentially leaving homeowners with an inoperable or unlicensed pool—a lose-lose for everyone.

Hire Trained Pool Technicians

A quick online search for ‘pool service’ will leave even the most experienced Googler’s head spinning due to the incredible quantity of search results that pop up—roughly 185,000,000! There are a lot of pool service providers who claim to know what they’re doing; however, the risk of having to close an association’s pool, even if for just a few days, is simply not worth the few bucks that can be saved by hiring unqualified technicians. Do your homework, get referrals and enjoy the resulting peace of mind.

A community swimming pool is an amenity that everyone in the community should be able to enjoy and, when maintained and managed effectively, is a key asset for your association. Professional community managers provide a wealth of knowledge and best practices in the area of pool management that can save associations time, energy and money, all while ensuring your residents get the most from their community.
