Pool maintenance can kill the fun of owning one, but a new app from one of the country's largest pool sellers is making the process a breeze

Pools are the best antidote to the dog days of summer, but maintaining them can feel like swimming upstream. Now, the largest swimming pool retailer in the United States, Pinch A Penny, has a new service app designed to increase transparency between customers and technicians and streamline maintenance.

With the Pinch A Penny app, users can view pool maintenance reminders for necessities like skimming, cleaning filters, and vacuuming on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. Customers are also able to test the chemical levels of their own water with the app, which can analyze samples and inform if anything needs to be added for proper balance. Technicians will also be able to use the app to check in for appointments and to notify customers when maintenance is taking place.

Along with the scheduling capabilities, the Pinch A Penny app also creates a direct line between customers and their nearest brick-and-mortar location with calling and texting, in case they need immediate assistance. This summer, pool maintenance is going swimmingly thanks to Pinch a Penny.
