About Midwest Pool Management
Midwest Pool Management has been managing all types of aquatic facilities since 1967. We currently provide swimming pool management services to municipalities along with managing swimming pools for a number of private clubs and subdivision. We hire over 1500 aquatic staff members per year. Our depth of experience is unmatched in the area of aquatic facility management. Our principals have over 50 years combined experience in aquatic facility operations, maintenance and management.
We define the way we approach swimming pool management with the client in mind. Our experience has taught us that every aquatic facility we operate has unique needs that are very different from other aquatic facilities regardless of whether they are municipal or privately owned. Our staff training program is tailored to deal with the unique demands of each aquatic facility including a comprehensive emphasis on customer service, customers being defined as both the facility patrons and the client. We also monitor and understand the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Virginia Graham Baker Safety Act and all new regulations that pertain to swimming p...ool management. We know that our staff will be perceived as your staff, and as such, they should represent the client with the highest professional standards.
Our primary objective is to develop a partnership with the client to best serve the patrons of the facility by creating a safe and enjoyable environment that will earn the repeat business of your patrons. It is your facility, and you will not lose any control or authority. In fact, contracting with Midwest Pool Management will allow you to devote your resources to more administrative and planning functions that will be of great benefit to your patrons. A successful operation is dependent upon a team effort between Midwest Pool Management and our clients.
