With so much going on in the world we thought we would touch base and YES we can still come out and service your pool.
Jim’s Pool Care technicians have always maintained the highest standards when it comes to pool cleaning health and safety practices. This new pandemic is no exception. All of our Pool Care Technicians have the best hygiene practices in place, so you can be sure that you and your family are safe when we come to visit your pool.
A few things to remember:
Most Pool Care Technicians do not come into contact with people.
Your local Jim’s Pool Care expert has, for most franchises, been in business for a while. They have many regular customers that allow them to go straight into the backyard and service the pool, often times without even seeing the homeowner. Our supplies are delivered to us, we do not need to visit a pool shop to obtain what we need to service your pool. This means, we hardly come into contact with people at all.
Pool Chlorine and Pool Chemicals, we work with them daily.
The chlorine in your pool contains ingredients that kills bacteria and germs. Our hands are always clean and with new practices we clean them every job to be safe. YES, we practice the prescribed process of washing our hands regularly to keep you and our team safe.
We are smart. YES we are because we care.
We have strict protocols. If we are showing symptoms of illness, we will not continue to service your pool at all and will take the appropriate steps.
To give you a better idea of the precautions Jim’s Pool Care Franchsies are taking, these are the steps we have advised them to follow when servicing your pool:
Strategies to keep our customers and pool care team safe
- We need to focus on distance and common sense. Please keep a safe distance between yourself, customers and suppliers of at least 1.5m
- If you arrive on site and customers are home, be polite and professional and advise that you will be keeping your “safe distance”.
- If you arrive at a house and they are self isolating we recommend that you advise them to stay inside while you service their pool.
- If you have a customer that advises you they have COVID-19 then you must put their pool service on hold, but help where you can to provide advice. Once they are all clear you can then attend site again, but follow the strict service protocols
- Ensure you wash your hands before and at the end of each job, after touching equipment gates, taps, etc.
- Keep hands away from your face at all times and wipe down surfaces you may have come in contact with
Continuing the service we provide to pool owners will ensure that your pool reminds safer, clean and free from any algae or contamination. We have to keep your pH in check (7.4-7.8) and maintain a minimum level of chlorine (at least 2PPM)
With many people being let go from work and most children staying home from school, many of us are going to be spending all our time at home. many of our customers are working from home and may be for a prolonged period. Why not enjoy this time in the best way possible? Keeping your pool clean will keep not only the kids entertained and playing outside, but will also be a great way for the adults to relax and take a moment for themselves.
Pandemics like this can be scary times, but we can be stronger than letting it beat down our spirits. Take care of yourself by jumping in the pool, have a back float and look into the sky, forget everything for a couple of moments in your day. Enjoy this time as best you can and think about the benefits or possibilities this time can bring. It doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.
Stay safe, stay calm and keep smiling.
