The best way to get your questions answered is by speaking directly with one of our franchise development representatives but if you’re early in the exploratory process, here are a few common questions that may have crossed your mind.

Do I need to have experience in pool cleaning or business ownership to own a Pool Scouts franchise?

The short answer? No! Pool Scouts offers comprehensive training when you become a franchisee. The initial training program covers both the business side as well as the technical side of operating a Pool Scouts franchise. Training continues on an ongoing basis throughout your time as a Pool Scouts business owner. Our team of professionals guides you through constant communication, coaching and training.

How much does it cost to start a Pool Scouts franchise?

A number of different factors will determine your initial investment, but we estimate your total initial costs will be between $87,490-$109,625. See our Investment page for more detail or contact a franchise sales representative for more information about the costs associated with owning and operating a Pool Scouts franchise.

How long is the typical pool cleaning service season?

The Pool Scouts season varies with geography, and we have franchisees operating in both seasonal and nonseasonal markets. In nonseasonal markets our franchisees operate through most months of the year (though some at a lower service volume), while in seasonal markets services typically run from early spring to around the late fall timeframe. There are perks of both models, and we are happy to help you understand the differences and what to expect for your geography.

What does the ideal Pool Scouts franchisee look like?

Our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds – from veterans to corporate executives to techies. This is not a “one-size-fits-all” sort of family. But what’s most important is to be passionate, driven and hungry. Working in the service industry, people skills are essential to your success; your smile will be contagious for your customers and will motivate your team. An ideal franchisee thrives on achieving results and on making a difference in their community. They believe in the Pool Scouts mission and are motivated to be part of our brand’s success.

Can I convert my existing pool cleaning business to a Pool Scouts franchise?

Do you offer any incentives for veterans?
