Home Inspection is a normal procedure when purchasing a home. Most of the buyers hire a professional to inspect the house, and check the plumbing, engineering, and electrical to make sure everything is in working condition.
When purchasing a house with a pool, it’s important to have a pool inspection also. This means it’s time to call a professional who knows about the potential pitfalls of a pool.
We perform pool inspections with our state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to have a more in-depth look at potential problems in the pool that may cost thousands of dollars to repair! We are the only company to provide this in the area.
The first thing most Pool inspectors look at is the gate and fence leading into the pool area. The fence should be long enough to prevent a child from climbing into the pool area and have no missing planks or holes. The codes for gates and fencing vary by municipality and state, so it is important to check the local regulation.
In a pool inspection process, it can be found that a pool is old enough, or there may be other conditions such as the size of the buyer’s lot, which means fencing isn’t required by law. However, a professional pool inspector will recommend that proper barriers must be installed. Decking around a pool can be troublesome. It is included in the pool inspection to look for major cracks in the deck, which show settling around the pool and can pose a tripping hazard. Other hazards may involve improperly secured or sized skimmer lids.
The final step before reaching the pool is to check the mastic between the pool coping and the deck. The mastic, deck, or both may find out to be painted, which can hide problems. The inspector then examines the pool and gets vital statistics such as what material is used and when was the pool constructed. It is part of pool inspection to examine that the surface of the pool is free from cracks and staining.
Our pool inspector will provide a clear and thorough pool inspection report that addresses the issues outlined above, but also offers numerous solutions on how to fix the issues that may be found. So, it is always wise to have a pool inspection to maintain your pool safely.
