While on the search for a new home, you have found one with a lovely pool, peaceful spa, or an inviting hot tub. Many assume that a pool inspection is included in all home inspection packages. This is not always the case, as a pool inspection requires more skill and expertise than a regular home inspection. When you need an assessment for your water entertainment features, look to the experts at InspectPros, Inc. We are happy to provide a thorough inspection, with a complete detailed report of each of the items listed below.
Comprehensive Visual Evaluation
The first part of the pool inspection is a visual evaluation of every area of the pool or hot tub that is visible to the eye. This includes the pool itself, the pool deck area, the hot tub, and the spa. A professional pool inspector will also view all accessories such as railings, ladders, and diving boards. Any evidence of cracking, leaking, or settling in the foundation and deck area will be listed on the inspection report.
Complete Water Testing
Water in the pool or hot tub needs to be tested for the proper amount of chemicals like chlorine and calcium, as well as the pH and alkalinity levels. If the levels measure too high or too low, they can cause skin irritation, burning or stinging of the eyes, and at the worst, allow dangerous bacteria to survive.
Thorough Systems Inspection
Once the outward inspection and water tests are complete, a thorough inspection of all inner working systems needs to be completed. This assessment includes an inspection of the following items:
- Plumbing and pumps
- Lighting fixtures
- Wiring & electrical
- Waterfalls & water features (if applicable)
