Better Business Bureau and VivoPools

We’re really good at this…


…so your family can enjoy more of this.


And that’s only one of the many reasons to go with a reputable company for your pool maintenance needs.  You want your pool to be a place of fun, not a source of headaches.  As this article by the Better Business Bureau points out, it’s important that you do your research when seeking a credible pool maintenance company.  In 2012, the Better Business Bureau received 771 complains nationally regarding pool service and repair providers over alleged unauthorized charges, poor service and ignored service calls.  Don’t want that to happen to you?  Do your homework!

The BBB suggests several tips when hiring a pool maintenance service, such as researching the company and checking that they are a BBB Accredited Business:

  1. Do your research
  2. Compare costs
  3. Get everything in writing
  4. Verify licensing
  5. Check insurance/warranties

We are really proud to a BBB Accredited Business.  Not only do we want you to enjoy as much hassle-free pool time as possible, but we want you to feel secure knowing there is a BBB Accredited Business behind the tech who is coming into your home to take care of your pool.  That’s the VivoPools way.

Make a Splash Makes Swim Safety a Priority


We are all ready for summer and hope you are too. Schools are letting out. Days are getting longer. And nothing sounds better than taking the kids out for a fun and refreshing swim, right?

Well, only so long as everyone can be pool safe, and that’s not always the case. Frighteningly, 70% of African-American children cannot swim. The same is true for 60% of Latino children and 40% of Caucasian children. But there are some wonderful people out there who are dedicating their time and efforts to, shall we say, turning the tides on this problem. And that’s why we want to give a shout out to Cullen Jones and everyone else involved with Make a Splash!

Cullen Jones is a really rad U.S. Olympic athlete who not only won gold, but is an ambassador for Make a Splash, a foundation dedicated to teaching kids to learn valuable swim safety in the water and even enjoy the experience. We’d explain, but they do a much better job in this news video.

If you want to know more about Make a Splash, you can find them here. And from all of us at Vivo, thanks for making pools across the country a safer and more fun place for kids!
