POOL WATER DRAIN AND/OR TREATMENT
DISCLOSURE AND ACKNOWLEDGMENT


Before plugging in the pump please read this document in its entirety.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS STATEMENT IS TO PROVIDE YOU, THE CUSTOMER, WITH INFORMATION CONCERNING THE DRAINING FOR MAINTENANCE OF SWIMMING POOL WATER.  DURING THIS PROCEDURE, THERE ARE CERTAIN RISKS THAT ARE NOT NORMALLY ASSOCIATED WITH DAY-TO-DAY POOL MAINTENANCE, AND WHICH ARE NOT WITHIN THE CONTROL OF THE PERSON DRAINING YOUR POOL. THIS LETTER IS DESIGNED TO INFORM YOU OF SOME OF THE RISKS AND POSSIBLE RESULTS OF THE POOL DRAINING PROCESS.

DRAINING: Periodic draining of swimming pool water is a common maintenance practice. It is routinely performed to remove water that has become hard or laden with excessive minerals, or to perform needed maintenance or repairs to a pool. Normally, removal of water from a pool causes no problems. However, there are a few things that can happen of which you should be aware.  In certain geographical areas with a high water table, when empty the pool may rise out of the ground, a condition often times caused by hydrostatic pressure (i.e. too much water in the soil). Once exposed to the air, tile may loosen or fall off; the pool surface can shrink, expand, crack, blister, flake or pop off, etc. These problems can occur, and are beyond the control of the person who has simply “drained the water”.  Customer agrees to accept all consequences of having drained the pool regardless of why the pool is being drained.  Original pool builder could void warranty. The discharge water remains the property and responsibility of the Customer along with all consequences and effects the water may cause. No warranty is given by the service contractor or the service individual covering any conditions resulting from the pool being drained.

Restrictions on disposal of water from swimming pools vary from city to city; it is the customer’s responsibility to approve disposal location and procedures and plug in the pump.  After draining and/or work has been completed it is the customer’s responsibility to arrange for the refill of the pool with water and any necessary start-up chemicals, and if necessary priming the pool pump and restarting the pool equipment.

POWER WASH / CHEMICAL WASH /OR TREATMENTS:  The decision to use high pressure water or chemical procedures to remove stains, mineral build-up, or algae from a pool’s surface should be very carefully considered.  Under most circumstances, staining or mineral buildup, or algae takes many months or years to accumulate. While power wash and chemical treatments to swimming pool surfaces are recognized as a common procedure, there are several problems that may occur. The process of applying water at high pressure or chemicals to a pool surface may cause the surface to etch, become rough, or expose more of the aggregate in the pool surface.  To what degree this occurs depends on the concentration of chemicals, the temperament of the stain being removed, and the quality and conditions of the surface itself.  In some cases, cracking, thinning or delamination of the tile and/or surface can occur and is beyond the control of the applicator. The stains or algae most likely took a long period of time to develop, and could be embedded deeply into the pool surface material.  At best, the customer can expect the pool’s appearance to look “brighter” than before, with some stains or algae remaining or returning.
