This is a pool maintenance business that has been operating continuously since 1988. Services consist of the following:

- Opening pools at the beginning of the season
- Weekly visits to maintain pools during the season (cleaning, check pH, chlorine, other chemicals, etc.)
- Closing pools at the end of the season
- Fixing or replacing filters, heaters, pumps, and other items as required

A pool opening date has already been coordinated with all customers for the beginning of 2014.

The owner has developed a proprietary (patent pending) combination of chemicals that is guaranteed to prevent algae growth.

There are more than 100 customers and the customer loss rate is very minimal. Additional customers are added every year through word-of-mouth referrals. The current service area is a radius of 20 miles around Wheeling, WV. About 90% of customers are individual/residential and 10% are commercial/institutional. Service is provided year-round to the commercial and institutional customers. About 80% of the customers are in the Wheeling and West Virginia area, while the remaining 20% of the customers are in the Saint Clairsville and Ohio area. Since the current owner is not doing marketing or advertising, there is significant potential to gain additional customers in both the West Virginia side and the Ohio side.

Yearly Sales: $100,000 (Approx)
Yearly Profit: $50,000 (Approx)

The sale can include approximately $20,000 in inventory (chemicals, filters, pumps, and other parts) and $3,000 in equipment. In addition, the new owner will be allowed to maintain the existing business name and phone number, if he desires.

Finally, homeowners with pools usually have significant disposable income. The relationship established through the pool maintenance business can open the door to a lot of additional services in the same household or neighborhood. A few examples of these additional services (and new sources of income) would be:

- Repair pool liners
- Lead detection service
- Lawn mowing
- Landscape and flower maintenance
- Snow removal (for additional income during winter months!)
- Dog walking and pet sitting during homeowner's vacations
- House sitting and mail/newspaper collection during homeowner's vacations
- Painting and powerwashing outdoor decks and patios
- Grill and BBQ cleaning
- MANY MORE!!!, only your imagination is the limit . . .
