What all does the pool and spa inspection cover?
The overall scope of this service includes a visible inspection of accessible pool components for obvious deficiencies such as leaking pumps, broken pipes, chipped or cracked pool decks. This is a visual inspection only and will not identify leaks in the pool, temperature or pressure issues or evaluate the correct chemical balance of water. This service is included in the home inspection as a courtesy to the customer at no additional cost.
Because of the complexity and sophistication of the pools that are being built today it is recommended to contract a pool service company to either maintain or educate you about the operation and maintenance of your pool and its equipment. A professional pool service company will perform a comprehensive inspection that will include such things as leak detection, testing of pumps, pressures, filters and water condition. Many companies offer discounts for these services that are included in the contract agreement.
