Your Pool Requires Maintenance
Pools, hot tubs, and spas can add value to your home, but they can also cost a lot to fix if issues are left unchecked. Proper, routine maintenance and inspections go a long way in keeping your pool or spa in top condition. Whether you’re about to purchase a new property or already have a pool of your own, getting regular pool and spa inspections can save you time, money, and headaches. Swimming pools and spas are great family fun, but with that fun comes additional maintenance and potential hazards to consider. By opting for a pool and spa inspection, you’re ensuring the equipment functions as intended and the safety of the pools systems/surroundings.
Our inspectors will examine your pool and spa in two parts: visually and mechanically. The visual pool and spa inspection includes looking over pool equipment, electrical supply (including pool lighting) and any safety issues immediately surrounding the pool and pool deck. The mechanical pool and spa inspection monitors most important equipment as it runs.
What to Expect During Your Pool Inspection
There are a lot of elements that work together for your swimming pool or hot tub. Hiring a professional for regular inspection can help prevent, or identify, problems before they wreak havoc. If you’re purchasing a new home or other property with a pool, it pays to understand what you’re buying. While some fixes may be minor, other issues can pose larger problems. The most common pool and spa problems found by inspectors include the following:
- Bad or missing ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs)
- Damaged or missing lights
- Improperly installed junction boxes or old-style junction boxes
- Equipment leaks
- Dirty filters
- No anti-vortex/entrapment drain covers
- Deteriorated or damaged heaters
- Improperly vented heaters
- Deteriorated or damaged shell or plaster
- Improperly bonded metal around the pool
- Non-compliance with pool and spa anti-drowning safety features
