Southeast

This year, survey respondents of service firms in Southeast provided information on just over 1,000 total regularly serviced swimming pools. These pool maintenance companies have a median account size of 70 swimming pools and 12 stand-alone spas that are serviced each week. Because of the climate in this region of the country however, many respondents reported that their regularly serviced pools represent only a fraction of the work they perform each year, with thousands of additional pools serviced to open for the spring, or close for the winter.

About 80 percent of respondents indicated they employ non-office workers to help service or repair the pools on route. Those companies are comprised of an average of 4 employees who are either paid by the pool or paid hourly with the remainder employed as salaried workers. About 13 percent of respondents paid their workers by the pool, while 75 percent paid their workers hourly. Hourly wages were about $15. Data was insufficient to report per pool worker wages.

About 86 percent of respondents indicated they employ non-office workers to help service or repair the pools on route. Those companies are comprised of an average of 15 employees who were almost always paid hourly wages. About 98 percent of respondents paid their workers by the hour. Hourly wages were about $20.
