If you are buying a home with a swimming pool, then you will need a pool inspection. Pools are just as important as the rest of the home and add a great value. However, if the pool isn't in a good condition it can easily become a money pit. Therefore, a full inspection is so important, so you know what you are purchasing; just like the rest of the home.
During the inspection the technician will walk around the pool area examining for any issues with the pool deck, the coping, and the mastic that connects the two. The inspector will also inspect the pool liner and foundation for any leaks, cracks or other damage. All hardware in and around the pool will also be checked. Hardware meaning, drains, lights, handrails, and ladders to make sure they are properly installed and safely in place. If the pool has a diving board it will also be checked to make sure it is properly secured to the deck and has no cracks or other signs of damage or weakening. The equipment pad will also be inspected, which includes the filters, pumps, heaters, plumbing, timers and any other electrical components involved in pool's functioning.
After the inspection, the technician will make a report of any possible repairs or replacement parts that will be required for the pool to be in full working condition.
