      Client expectations and commitment

      Clients understand that the environment around the pool and weather conditions can rapidly change the appearance of the swimming pool.  Poolside Christchurch cannot guarantee the pool will remain as they leave it for any length of time.  If the client is concerned with the quality of the service that has been performed please contact the office as soon as possible. 

      Under certain weather conditions it may not be possible to perform all of the regular tasks at the time of service.  Where possible Poolside Christchurch will defer servicing until the weather conditions are favourable.  No alteration to cost of servicing will be made for poor weather conditions.

      Clients understand that service visits do not constitute full management of the pool.  Clients will need to attend to the pool needs between service visits.  The longer the time between visits, the more the client needs to do to maintain the pool.  Clients understand it is important to advise Poolside Christchurch as soon as practicable if they notice any defect with the pool equipment or if the pool is turning green. 

      Clients are expected to continue servicing throughout the year and may change frequency for the seasons eg fortnightly in summer and four weekly in winter. If client cancels servicing at the end of summer we cannot guarantee there will be capacity to renew servicing in the future.

      Pricing and Payment

      • The price for service is as agreed at the time of engagement or as notified by Poolside Christchurch. Any chemicals or repairs required are charged in addition to the service charge and will be itemised on the invoice.  Work completed outside of regular servicing will be charged at the standard service rates. 
      • An invoice will be issued at the end of the month, followed by a statement in the first week of the next month.
      • Due date for payment is as specified on the invoice.

        Default & Consequences of Default

        Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue daily from the date when payment becomes due, until the date of payment at a rate of 2% per month.

        If the customer defaults in payment of any invoice when due, the Customer shall indemnify Poolside Christchurch from and against all costs and disbursements incurred by Poolside Christchurch in pursuing the debt including legal costs on a solicitor and own client basis and Poolside Christchurch’s collection agency costs.

        Great personal service from a team which knows what they’re talking about.

        I contacted several chemical suppliers in Canterbury (as I’m a newbie pool owner) and Lynda at Poolside came back with the most helpful reply and comprehensive information. I went in-store today and was blown away by the level of customer service. Lynda was super helpful and full of excellent tips and advice. I now feel much more confident about managing my pool, and know that I can always go and see Lynda if I get stuck. Plus, the product range was excellent and prices were good too! I won’t be going anywhere else – very impressed!!!

        Great service and advice from these guys. Have had a pool for 10 years and was made aware of them a couple of years ago and the pool has never been better, regular water testing service and the correct info to fix and maintain pool water quality. I’d highly recommend them to anyone with a spa or pool. 👍
