A swimming pool can be a backyard oasis. Let’s work together to keep your pool healthy and safe.

At Invitation Homes, we know how much our residents love their swimming pools. So if your home has one, we want to help you get the most fun out of it. Please take a few minutes to understand your responsibilities and review these maintenance and safety tips.

Resident responsibilities for pool maintenance.

Water Levels

It’s important to maintain the appropriate water level at the midpoint of the pool skimmer basket inlet.

Pool Pump

Please run the pump during established times provided by the Invitation Homes pool service provider.

Pool Skimmer, Brush & Vacuum

Use a pool skimmer and vacuum as needed. Brush all pool surfaces to prevent debris from collecting. 

Pool Toys

Avoid small pool toys that may cause damage or block cleaning systems. Remove toys and floats when not in use.

Swimsuits Only

Avoid non-swimming attire because such clothing retains levels of laundry detergent that cause pool chemical imbalances.

Service Appointments

Make sure your pool is clean, your pets are secured, and your service provider has access to the pool area on service days.

Make a service request.

Our new, easy-to-use maintenance app is the best way to request pool service. Our convenient maintenance portal is always there for you, too.
