Balancing Pool Safety and Cleaning Services
When deciding on any pool barrier, homeowners may ask for input from a pool cleaning service. While your pool servicer’s opinion may seem to be an important part of the equation, keep in mind these businesses come with their own set of interests and experiences. Some servicers may not be familiar with our safety nets and unintentionally give inaccurate information. Others may worry that any pool barrier will add extra time to their tightly scheduled day.
Katchakid’s Experience with Pool Cleaning Services
In our expansive 50-year industry history, Katchakid has installed thousands of safety nets. A significant majority of our clients employ pool cleaning services. These providers often become our most prominent referral source!
Key Information Regarding Katchakid Safety Products
Here are some crucial points both homeowners and pool cleaning service providers should understand about Katchakid safety products:
- Chemical Permeability of Katchakid Safety Net: Our safety net is designed to allow pool chemicals to pass through, eliminating the need for its removal during chemical treatments. Pool cleaning agents can be directly administered through the netting material.
- Partial Removal for Pool Wall Cleaning: During pool wall brushing, only a specific section of the safety net may be temporarily disengaged.
- Compatibility with Vacuum-style Pool Cleaners: The Katchakid Net system is designed not to interfere with vacuum-style pool cleaners.
Importance of Product Knowledge for Pool Cleaning Services
We highly recommend that the Katchakid Owner’s Manual and other relevant product information are shared with your pool cleaning service provider. Most service providers adapt well to our systems. If your service provider voices any concerns, we advise fostering open communication to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. After each service, homeowners must ensure that the safety net is correctly reattached.
