Why Become a Pool Cover Specialist?

Say goodbye to office walls

Want to spend your days taking in the views of beautiful B.C.? When you work with Pool Patrol the office and computer screens melt away and are replaced with rolling hills, lake views and the great outdoors. Plus, no two days are the same.

When you join Pool Patrol’s team, you become part of a tight-knit group of pool cover specialists who are passionate about safety, love hands-on challenges and thrive in a supportive work environment.

It's been a good company to work for. Allan runs it really well, we're not just a number. The problem solving keeps things interesting. It’s fast paced so the days go by pretty quickly, and you’re not looking at the clock all day. I’m also proud to add the safety aspect to people's yards. It’s rewarding to protect little kids.

— Jesse Parnell, Pool Cover Installer and Technician

Management is excellent. Everyday Allan and Eric congratulate me and let me know that my work is appreciated, it really boosts my confidence. The hands-on work comes with challenges and I like that because it makes the days fun. Even on the tough days it beats any day on any other job—plus, being able to work outside and work in beautiful and amazing places!

— Caleb Oenema, Pool Cover Installer and Technician
