I started a little side work cleaning a pool. I'm going to look at two more making it three pools a month. Just doing it for beer money really. Should I pursue getting license and bonded? Btw I am cpo certified at my job

Yep just as BT said. Covers yourself and your customers. Make it 4 or 5 a month to pay for it all and be cover!

I'm a little surprised you can have a pool cleaning or any business with being licensed and insured. Keep in mind anything could happen. A home owner could accuse you of damaging a pool liner any any number of things.

What's it mean to be bonded?
Certain professions (usually service/construction industries) require surety bonds. It's just another way a customer can get paid if your business royally screws up. Edit, to add more to it, if a customer uses your bond to make, say a $10k claim, you will owe the bond company $10k. The bond company just guarantees that someone will pay for the customer's losses.

Be careful. You aren’t allowed to touch the pump for repairs without special licensing. Other pool companies will report you and it is a hassle at that point. Just FYI.
