Pool Maintenance from the Fox Pools Pros

Unfortunately, pool ownership isn't all fun and games all the time. Maintenance and repairs are required to keep everything working properly and ready for when the warm—or cold—weather rolls in. Fox Pools offers pool maintenance and repair services for homeowners in Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton and surrounding areas of the GTA. Often, we may be able to eliminate your need for a service visit altogether, after asking a series of diagnostic questions at the time of your call.
