When you own or operate a commercial pool, it is important to have the right team in place to manage it. That's where a quality pool management company comes in. Here are seven reasons why you should contract one for your facility:

Lifeguard LI is Long Island's premier pool management company. Learn more Here.

1. Expertise

A good pool management company will have years of experience and knowledge in managing all aspects of commercial pools. They will be able to handle everything from lifeguard staffing and safety, to opening and closing the pool, and performing routine maintenance tasks.

At Lifeguard LI, we have 20+ years of experience in the aquatics service space. Our staff consists of professionals with backgrounds in pool opening, closing and maintenance, staffing and facility monetization.

2. Efficiency

A well-run pool management company will be able to keep your facility running smoothly and efficiently, ensuring that all deadlines are met and that the pool is always ready for use by customers or members.

Lifeguard LI ensures that your facility is always full staffed and 100% operational. Our use of several technology platforms creates a stream-lined management hierarchy that gives us the strength of a large enterprise, but the personal touch of a local Long Island company, which is what we are to our core.

3. Cost-effective

In many cases, contracting a pool management company can actually save you money in the long run. They will be able to negotiate better rates with suppliers, and can often get discounts on bulk orders of chemicals or other supplies.

This is true of Lifeguard LI as well. We have negotiated contracts with chemical suppliers and have privately sourced all of the safety equipment your facility will need. Many facilities have wasteful spending on over-staffing, this is something Lifeguard LI manages using historical data and local trends to ensure patrons are safe, but at the same time we are not wasting resources where they are not needed.

4. Hassle-free

When you contract a pool management company, you can rest assured that all of the details will be taken care of for you. If you are not a "pool person", the complete operation of a pool can be a daunting task.

We understand that managing a pool is not a Memorial Day to Labor Day operation. It is truly a year-round endeavor. Lifeguard LI will take care of all of the headaches associated with seasonal hiring, chemical balancing, board of health communications and so much more.

5. Customized service

A great pool management company will work with you to create a customized plan that meets the specific needs of your facility.

We will sit down with you and your team to discuss your specific needs and those of the pool facility. We have crafted unique experiences at country clubs, yacht clubs, HOA's and summer camps, paying attention to even the most subtle detail. You will experience the detail, down to how we greet your members or how we interact with the children at your pool.

6. Peace of mind

Knowing that your pool is being managed by a professional company can give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on other aspects of your business.

Lifeguard LI prides ourselves on our slogan "committed to excellence". Each of our staff members, from our founder and CEO, Steve Grella down to a newly hired lifeguard or pool attendant, we believe that working at your pool and keeping it safe is more than just a job, it is a call.

7. Better bottom line

Ultimately, contracting a pool management company can help you to improve your bottom line by ensuring that your pool is running safely and efficiently.

We will run a cost analysis of your pool facility to determine where costs can be cut. Then from there we assess what programs or systems can be added to increase revenue generation. For facilities, we consistently generate more revenue for you through guest fees, aquatics programs and apparel sales.


There are many other benefits to hiring a commercial pool management company, but these are just a few of the most important ones. If you're looking for a way to take your facility's pool operation to the next level, then contracting a quality pool management company is the way to do it!

In addition, a quality pool management company such as Lifeguard LI will have a strong understanding of all local and state regulations regarding commercial pools. We understand that the nationwide lifeguard shortage is a real issue for many aquatics facilities. Our roots as a training & certification provider has given us the ability to provide comprehensive lifeguard training for our staff and ensures we will never be short of new, quality candidates.

If you are looking for a quality pool management company to help take care of your commercial pool, see what we have to offer by contacting us today. We would be happy to discuss your specific needs and develop a tailored plan to keep your facility safe and thriving.
