Home-based businesses of this nature are highly sought after and always sell fast, as they are easy to operate, stable, consistent and very profitable. Considering this owner operator only works 40 -50 hours, 5 days a week, it's truly a lifestyle business as well. This dream business has been established for over 25 years on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. It provides a full range of pool cleaning, maintenance and monitoring services. The majority of clients are long term, having been with the business for over 5 years, with some over 20 years, or even dating back to when the business was first established. There is a healthy mix of rental properties, private homes, and body corporates. These long term relationships provide the purchaser of this business with excellent value and security, as there is some ongoing certainty of income.

Pool maintenance is a growing industry, because a lot of pool owners can't be bothered cleaning their pool themselves, or they just don't have the time. Your weekly schedule is all set out, you start at 8.30 am and you're home by 5.00 pm, most days, and a bit longer days in Summer. There are no bad debts and profitability is around a whopping 60%. The current owner is a reluctant seller and is only parting with the business, as it's really time for a change for him.

A new owner could learn to operate the business in just a few weeks, because it's simply not that difficult. Once you know the basics of keeping a pool clean, it's just a matter of following a set procedure. The geographical area that the business covers is compact within its daily schedules, which minimises the amount of travel and maximises profits. All the equipment you need to successfully operate this business is included, and you can supplement income through sales of pool chemicals and organising pump and filter repairs, which is a really handy way to boost profits.

This business is truly a 'lifestyle' business because the hours worked are very 'sociable'. Being an independent pool maintenance business means there are no franchise fees to pay, no restrictions on where you can work or what you can or can't do, and you can enjoy complete freedom and take all the profits, which is fantastic! This gives you a natural advantage over the franchised type pool businesses.

The business is unaffected by the ups and downs of the economy, it really is 'recession proof'. It is steady, consistent and predictable. Pool owners still have to keep their pools clean, no matter what's happening with the economy.

Easy to own and to operate, with no formal qualifications necessary, means most people would be capable of taking things to the next level if they wish.

Further investigation is therefore strongly advised. The current owner is keen to ensure a smooth transition for a new owner, and to make sure any new owners will look after the current client base.

Businesses such as this are rare, are always in demand, interested buyers are urged to act quickly.
