Pool, hot tub and spa service technicians repair and maintain the heating, circulating, filtering and electrical systems in pools and hot tubs. They must be able to read work orders and manufacturers’ specifications, inspect and test components in pools and hot tubs, communicate with customers, and make sure the pool equipment is safe to use.
Pool, hot tub and spa installers use power hand tools and other equipment to install the pool walls, liners, bottom finish and re-circulating systems in pools and hot tubs. They may also build a deck around the pool. Installers must be able to interpret blueprints and technical drawings, be aware of building and zoning codes, and consult efficiently with customers to get the job done.
