Once time permits please advise our office of the details so we can then liaise with the INSURER to ensure the smooth processing of the claim.

Please alert the INSURER or us if you have residents that have special needs such as the elderly or those with a disability, so they may be given priority.

Pools Claims

Some of the INSURERS have different covers for pools, please note the following is a general overview of what may be claimed in the event of a pool being damaged.

If there has been storm damage to the pool filter, pump or chlorinator and because of this the surface/lining would have to be physically cleaned, we will pay for the cleaning of the pool surfaces and cleaning or replacement of pool water as necessary.

If there is no damage to the pool, the policies will not cover cleaning or replacement of water.
