- Q. How do you determine the purchase price of a pool service route?
In the pool service industry, the purchase price of the pool route accounts is based on the monthly service billing amount only. A “multiple” times the monthly service billing amount of the accounts will determine the purchase price. This predetermined industry multiple will vary slightly depending on the area of the pool service accounts in the United States.

In most cases seller financing is not offered. Most new buyers use funds from savings, home equity loans, retirement accounts or friends and family to purchase a pool route.
- Q. How much training do I receive from the seller after I purchase the route?
The seller will provide you with two weeks of hands-on training in service, repairs and preventative maintenance and be available for an additional two weeks to answer any questions that you might have.
