The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation announced earlier this year that they will fine pool service companies for fraudulent claims stating that they are licensed to perform electrical work. Companies will only be allowed to employ licensed electrical contractors.
David Gonzalez, Compliance Manager at the TDLR in Austin, Texas, states you cannot offer to perform electrical installations without the proper contracting license. Pool companies will now be required to a Residential Appliance Installer’s License or employ staff that holds this license.
Many pool service companies who’ve complied with the law say that this is a good thing because they can’t be underbid by unlicensed workers anymore. Many believe that this crackdown will close gaps from past years of inconsistency.
