Transcripts - Pool maintenance tips for property managers by mr. rekey locksmith
What does a locksmith know about pools? Not much, but we do know how to help property
managers and who doesn’t like a refreshing dip in the pool during a hot day? Pools require a
lot of maintenance and are subject to many local and state regulations. Every summer (or if
you’re somewhere where the weather is always nice), pool maintenance creates another
thing property managers must learn to juggle. Don’t worry, Mr. Rekey knows a thing or two
about helping with your property management needs, so here are a few pool maintenance
tips for property managers.
Get Your Pool Inspected
Most state and local regulations require a yearly inspection of pools at residential rental
properties. It’s a good idea to find yourself a trusted pool maintenance provider to perform
this inspection before tenants start using the pool. Most pools fail inspections due to
improperly balanced chemical levels, which leads us to our next tip.
Always Maintain Proper Chemical Levels
Pools are a great way to keep your tenants happy. They’re an added amenity that can make
your property more valuable, but if they’re not properly maintained they can be harmful to
the health and happiness of your tenants. Ensuring your chemical levels are properly
maintained helps reduce harmful diseases and reduces the need for constant maintenance.
Levels should be checked 2 to 3 times a day for chlorine, P.H., alkalinity, calcium, and
phosphorous. It’s important to document your chemical checks and when chemical
maintenance has been performed.
Maintain Pool & Spa Equipment
Along with chemical maintenance, regular equipment maintenance and checks will also help
ensure your property’s pool is clean and running smoothly. It’s important to regularly clean
out your pool filters and ensure proper water flow and suction. As with all maintenance,
keeping it regular and making it a part of your day can reduce the big property management
headaches down the road.
It’s important to make sure the gates and and fences around your pool are in working order
and the proper height. These two things are a huge liability issue for property managers. If a
fence gate does not properly latch or is too short, anyone can wander into your property’s
pool, and should an accident occur, you may be liable. It’s also important to keep up the
proper signage. If you do not have a lifeguard on duty, make sure you have the proper
signage to let tenants know that they are swimming at their own risk. “No Diving” signs, pool
rules, depth markers, emergency numbers, ring buoys, and reaching poles are all additional
safety equipment and signage you will most likely need around your property’s pool.
These tips are important, not only for your pool to pass inspection, but ultimately to reduce
your liability as a property manager. At Mr. Rekey, we always recommend property managers
use a third-party service provider as the ultimate layer of security in reducing your liability.
So find yourself a trusted third-party vendor in your area that can give you the peace of
mind of knowing your tenants are safe and having fun at your property’s pool.
