How old do you have to be to have a pool maintenance job in Illinois after you are certified?
I am 16 and i am about to be certified to service public pools but i wanted to know how old i have to be to get a job servicing one.
It depends on what level of maintenance we’re talking. If it’s simple cleaning and minor repair work, then you should be able to get a job at 16. If it’s more of a mechanical technician, I don’t believe there would be any specific age restriction except those required for certification and by the individual facilities.
Never hurts to ask a facility directly.
I want to replace the carpet around my pool and am looking for something that does not mildew.?
We want to replace the carpet because we spend days each summer cleaning up the mildew that forms. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good around-the-pool surface? We are not interested in concrete because the kids run around too much. From my research it looks like Kool Deck peels up and lifts in spots. We are looking for maintenance free.
There’s a company in California that deals in soft synthetic turf…. They even did the turf for the XL Super Bowl…..animal friendly also. It will even withstand the chlorine….It will last 20-25 Yrs. They can even do putting green for your backyard…..
