I can't recommend a pool valet service, but I can recommend a fantastic automatic pool robot

 

I visited a friend in Aussie last year and he had one in his pool and I saw how amazing it was. At the time I was very frustrated as my pool sits below a large eucalyptus tree. I went straight down to the local store in Newcastle, and seeing that they were significantly cheaper in Aussie than what I saw advertised on NZ websites, I bought one on the spot, then just checked it in on the flight home. Fortunately I packed light on that trip so the boxed robot combined with my other luggage was still within the weight restriction so it didn't cost me anything to get it home.

 

No more scooping leaves and tree nuts out of the pool by hand which is a god-send. It can also climb the walls of the pool to collect algae etc with no issues. Less debris in the pool means easier maintenance, less chlorine use, and longer intervals between visits from my pool guy (a brilliant guy, but in Christchurch, so no use to the OP)

 

These robots retail for around $1700 in NZ which is a bit steep - I paid AUD$899. Even with the exchange rate I still came out well ahead.

I use auckland pool and spa ltd.  they come every month to maintain my pool and take care of everything (they replaced the filter when it died, organized a automatic chlorine feeder etc).  they were quite a lot cheaper than poolpanthers, who were still pretty cheap.
