I have on more than one occasion caught these people providing phony water test results to sell more chemicals. Last week I was told I needed shock as my chlorine level was a "1" and two bags of salt as my salt was 3000. When I protested that my home test kit indicated I had a decent level of chlorine Jim the manager snidely responded with "just go with that then". Good advice! I left purchasing nothing and returned to one of the Palm Bay stores run by his father. In spite of my pump and chlorinator being off overnight for over 12 hours and receiving a little bit of rain my chlorine registered a perfect 3 and salt a perfect 3500. So much for needing Shock and salt. I complained to the corporate office but they simply responded with a form email stating their tests were very "accurate" and any inconsistency must have been due to "operator error". Both technicians in fact have been there for a long time and are experienced. Thus far I have only had this issue with the Sebastian location.

Called about servicing my pool . This business was not interested, stating it was an outside pool and they all ready had enough pools to service ! I guess more work then they wanted too do. They did refer me too another place.

Absolutely terrible service, very rude! Mary Beth(owner) needs to learn some basic customer service skills. Will never do business there again! STAY AWAY!
Tips & Advices
Essential pool cleaning supplies include a skimmer, pool brushes, a telescopic pool pole, and a vacuum. A water test kit is also essential, as it allows you to gauge the water quality and add solutions/chemicals as needed to balance the water. If you have a saltwater pool, you won’t add compound chlorine, but it will still require chemicals, as well as needing to be super-chlorinated  (aka “shocked”) once a week.
The primary benefits of a saltwater pool are that the water is less harsh/irritating to skin and eyes than a chlorine-treated pool--and free of the chemical chlorine smell. Also, saltwater pools are less expensive upfront at the time of installation. (However, saltwater pools tend to be more expensive to maintain.) Saltwater pool still require regular upkeep--daily skimming, but they require less complex routines in terms of chemical monitoring and balancing. Weekly monitoring is just for three things: free chlorine, cyanuric acid stabilizer, and pH.
An automatic pool cleaner vacuums debris and dirt from the pool and brushes the surfaces clean. The basic models have a suction nozzle and a hose, and connect to the pool’s strainer basket and filter. These are suction-side or pressure-side pool cleaners. Robotic pool cleaners, which are used to clean larger pools, are self-contained and much more expensive. The appeal of all automatic pool cleaners is that they work with little to no human supervision.
Maintaining a residential swimming pool typically costs $150-$250 per month for DIY maintenance/cleaning. The cost of running the filter pump is additional. This increases by around $100-$200 a month for professional cleaning, and $100-200 if you need to keep it heated. If you only use your pool during certain seasons, it costs a few-hundred dollars to “open” it for the swimming season (a heavy clean and professional water balance).
A swimming pool needs to be cleaned once a week. Some people maintain it much more painstakingly--skimming every other day, brushing algae-prone areas twice weekly, and vacuuming more than once weekly. Do not forget to clean the pool pumps thoroughly every couple months.
