These Terms of Service (“TOS”), together with any Sign Up Form or similar onboarding document(s) (collectively, “Sign Up Form”), either as amended from time to time by Pool Troopers, LLC., a limited liability company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors and assigns (“Pool Troopers,” “us,” “we” and/or “our”), between you (“Client,” “you” and/or “your”) and Pool Troopers, sets forth the terms applicable to your purchase and/or use of our products and services (collectively, the “Services”). You and Pool Troopers together may be referred to herein as the “Parties” and each may be referred to herein as a “Party.” This TOS and the Sign Up Form explains our obligations to you, and your obligations to us in relation to any Services you purchase or otherwise utilize.  These TOS apply to our provision of residential pool maintenance services only.  If you are interested in commercial pool maintenance services, please contact us.

By signing up for our products and/or services, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this TOS and the Sign Up Form, as well as all other applicable rules or policies, terms and conditions, or service agreements that are or may be established by us from time to time and are incorporated herein by reference. You may also elect to purchase additional Services (the “Additional Services”) from us, our partners and/or other third parties, which may have their own service agreements or other related terms and conditions, and it is your obligation to review, accept, and abide by those service agreements or other related terms and conditions.

These Terms of Service may be updated from time to time by posting on the website.

SERVICES

Please refer to the Sign Up Form for a list of Services included in your plan. There is an additional charge for Salt Cell Cleaning, Quad Filter Cleaning, and DE Filter Cleaning. These services can be set up on a recurring basis for a discounted cost or scheduled as needed at full charge.

INVOICING, PAYMENT TERMS, AND CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION

You will be invoiced on the first day of the month for Services performed the previous month. If you pay in advance, you will be charged on the first day of the month for Services performed in the current month.

If you pay by check, payments are due by the 15th of the month. If you pay by credit card, you will be charged on the first day of the month.

If you pay by credit card, you hereby authorize Pool Troopers to charge your credit card account for Services rendered. Any authorized work outside of your recurring Services will be charged to your credit card account upon completion.

The amount of fees is specified in your Sign Up Form. No prior- notification will be provided before charging the credit card on the scheduled date. Pool Troopers will seek authorization for additional fees for services not agreed to in the Sign Up Form. Pool Troopers accepts VISA, AMEX, MASTERCARD, and DISCOVER cards only.

Pool Troopers will continue to charge the credit card for Services rendered until the final bill is generated after the termination of Services. If your credit card fails to process, the balance will be shown at the bottom of your statement. Declined payments due to insufficient funds will be reprocessed on the 1st Friday of the month. When the 1st falls on a Friday, the declined balance will be reprocessed the following Friday.

When your credit card is updated, you will receive another Sign Up Form to accept.

SERVICE TERM AND CANCELLATION POLICY

The Service Period as specified in the Sign-Up Form will automatically renew at the end of any Service Period for the same period as the prior Service Period. You may cancel at any time before the 15th of the month, and the service period will end on the last of the current month. If you cancel after the 15th of the month, the last day of service will be on the last day of the following month.

ADDITIONAL COST SERVICES

Pool Troopers will make every reasonable effort to maintain your pool in a safe and healthy manner. This may include advising you of additional services that may be necessary at additional cost as they fall outside the normal scope of work, such as the following:

  • Chemical surcharges due to un-repaired leaks in the pool;
  • Phosphate/ Black Algae treatments;
  • Draining pools to lower the TDS residuals;
  • Storm or special clean events;
  • Clean-up of broken glass and fecal incidents;
  • Significant water level adjustments or draining excessive amounts of high water due to a lack of a functioning pool overflow system;
  • Additional visits due to excessive bather loads as defined by permit;
  • Properties that have facilities pressure cleaned or landscaping service performed whereby excessive debris is deposited into the water;
  • Properties that have the aquatic facility resurfaced and require start-up(s) procedures that are labor-intensive and use excessive chemicals;
  • Instances when other chemical and mineral agents are required to maintain clear and balanced water conditions including coagulants, algaecides, sequestering or chelating agents, and flocculants;
  • Additional cleaning due to equipment issues and/or equipment changeouts that may or may not result in downtime; or
  • Submission for permitting services for equipment change out.

In the event the client is taking on some or all of the cleaning responsibility, there will be an extra charge for a Supervisor visit and for the necessary maintenance.

PRE-AUTHORIZATION AMOUNT

To have your back and keep your pool blue, clear, and swim-ready, as a customer of Pool Troopers, you authorize us to do wear and tear repairs for up to $99 without additional approval and bill for the repair. This could include fixing a basket, pump lid, o-ring, pressure gauge, etc. Fixing these items quickly will reduce pool downtime and minimize larger issues from occurring if items are not fixed in a timely manner.

SALT SYSTEM SERVICES

As of July 1, 2022, Pool Troopers will no longer offer the Premium Chemical Service due to parts shortages and the manufacturer discontinuing the product. Premium Chemical Service allowed customers to use a Pool Troopers-owned Salt Chlorine Generator (the “Equipment”) free of charge while on service. Customers who have started Premium Chemical Service prior to July 1, 2022, have the option to purchase a new Salt Chlorine Generator at a discounted rate or convert to Conventional Chemicals upon the Salt Chlorine Generator reaching the end of life.

Pool Troopers shall maintain ownership of the Equipment until it fails. If for any reason you decide to cancel the Premium Chemical Service before the equipment fails, Pool Troopers will remove the Equipment and re-plumb at no cost to you. However, you will be charged a repair fee or replacement fee if the Equipment is damaged by you, your agent, or any third-party, and you agree to pay such fees when invoiced.

You agree that we have the right to access the Property at our convenience if the Premium Chemical Service is cancelled or terminated for any reason, for the purpose of removing and reclaiming the Equipment and all its component parts used as part of this service. You further agree that if we are refused access to the Property, or if you otherwise prevent us from removing and reclaiming the Equipment prior to your purchase of the Equipment, you will be charged a replacement fee and will be liable for our expenses to recover said replacement fee from you including, without limitation, prevailing party attorney’s fees and court costs.

TEMPORARY FUEL SURCHARGES

You acknowledge and agree that any temporary fuel surcharge as may be imposed from time to time is not represented to be an offset or pass through of Pool Trooper’s costs, and that such Temporary Fuel Surcharge may actually reflect an amount for gross profit or margin.

HOLIDAYS

To provide an enjoyable working environment for employees, Pool Troopers will recognize the following holidays throughout the year whereby the business operations will be closed:  New-Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas week. During these holidays, Pool Troopers will make every effort to work ahead, and every attempt will be made to make sure the aquatic environment is in excellent condition and chemicals are plentiful to get through each holiday. During the Christmas week holiday, all schedules will be pushed forward one week. Additionally, you acknowledge that no credit will be provided for these planned skipped days of service.
