A home with a swimming pool can be a highly desirable feature for homeowners and potential home buyers. However, pools that have not had proper maintenance or care can be subject to many unsafe conditions: leaks, broken steps, faulty ladders, blocked drainage systems, unsafe diving boards, failing heaters, dangerous deck surfaces, missing electrical bonding, and more. Before purchasing a home with a pool it is important to have a professional pool inspection. A Certified Pool and Spa Inspector can alert you to items that need repair or potential hazards that may arise based on the current state of the pool.
Our trained and certified Pool and Spa inspectors will evaluate the pool and integrated spa, its current condition and its accessible components. Our Certified Pool and Spa Inspectors check over 100 items as part of each pool inspection to generate an easy-to-understand, digital report that will be delivered to you on the day of the inspection.
