What Does a Professional Pool Inspection Include?

If you’re in the market for a new home and you’re thinking about investing in a beautiful new property with a pool, make sure you’re not jumping into anything without a professional pool inspection. Although a pool generally adds to the market value of a home, one that isn’t in good condition can be a money pit.

Home inspectors rarely have the required expertise to assess a pool system properly, and you shouldn’t rely on them alone. It is highly recommended to hire an expert like the Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. for the job. A professional pool inspection should always include a full assessment of the following components.

1. The Entire Pool Deck Area and Its Safety Features

Our pool inspector will first and foremost take a walk around the pool area, taking note of the deck, the coping, and the mastic that connects them both. A good initial walk-around of the pool will allow us to quickly determine if the pool is in good condition or not.

Then, we will check that the pool has the appropriate safety features. Our pool inspector will carefully assess whether the pool area is secure with complete fencing and correctly latching gates.

2. Any Damages to the Pool

This is a big one! Our pool inspector will carefully check the pool from top to bottom. It is probably best for us to empty it to get a grasp of the whole pool truly. We’ll then be able to inspect the pool lining and foundation for any cracks or leaks, or any other kind of damage that could end up causing you trouble.

3. The Pool Hardware

The pool’s hardware will be carefully checked. This means all the ladders, the handrails, the drains, the lights, and anything extra that is connected or a part of your pool. For example, your specific pool might have a diving board or a water feature that might need particular attention.

In the case of a diving board, it is essential to test it to ensure it is adequately secured to the ground and isn’t cracking or weakening. Especially if it’s older and has seen better days, inspection is a must to be sure it doesn’t pose a danger.

4. The Pool Equipment

Finally, the pool’s electrical components will be looked at and assessed. This accounts for the pool filters, pumps, plumbing, heaters, timers, and anything else. We will get back to you with a full report of our findings and easily be able to let you know if the pool is in complete working condition or may need repair.
