Swimming Pool & Spa Inspections
Regular pool and spa inspections can provide significant benefits, whether you’re purchasing a home with a pool, or you are a current homeowner with a pool. These inspections help save you time, money, and future headaches.
Pools and spas offer a lot of fun, but they also require regular maintenance and can pose potential hazards. By opting for a swimming pool inspection, you not only prioritize safety but also ensure the smooth operation of your pool.
During a pool inspection, American Home Inspection Services certified inspectors carefully examine your pool and spa visually and mechanically. The visual inspection includes assessing pool equipment, electrical supply (including lighting), and safety concerns around the pool and pool deck. The mechanical inspection focuses on monitoring essential equipment while it runs.
Some common components examined during a pool and spa inspection include the skimmer, filter, pool covers, heater (if lit), venting, pressure gauge, supply lines, blower, time-based controls, corrosion in saltwater pools, and compliance with anti-drowning safety measures outlined by state and local codes.
If you’re buying a property with a pool, understanding its condition is essential. Some problems may be minor, while others can lead to more significant issues. Having an expert inspect the pool or spa before negotiating the final terms gives you peace of mind and helps you make informed decisions.
If you’re a current homeowner with a pool or spa, then having a Pool and spa inspection done can be worthwhile because they help maintain the value of your property. Preventative maintenance inspections ensure that your pool or spa remains in optimal condition. By handling chemical treatments correctly and operating heating and electrical systems safely, you can prevent potential issues or detect them early on through professional inspections.
