Pool inspections are commonly performed when someone is purchasing a new home that comes with a pool. These inspections involve a thorough check through every aspect of the pool from the equipment to its physical state. These inspections are important because they ensure that the pool is functioning properly and won’t end up being a major wallet drain or a hazard to you and your family.
Reasons Pool Inspections are Important
There are several reasons why pool inspections are important. Swimming pools are fun to have but they come with their own regulations and upkeep which is why getting a professional in can save you trouble down the line.
For one, a professional can make sure your pool is up to code. There are lots of local regulations related to pools such as fencing, access, materials, gates, etc. It can be a lot to keep track of and easy to overlook if you’re not familiar with the rules. If this gets neglected, you could expect to receive some expensive fines. An inspection ensures that doesn’t happen.
A pool inspection also helps you evaluate the condition of the pool and whether or not it’s worth your time and money. Pool repairs can get costly, and you don’t want to end up purchasing one that requires more repair and maintenance than its worth. The inspection will detail exactly what is damaged that needs repairing or replacing so you know what you’re getting yourself into.
What’s Included in Pool Inspections
Pool inspections range between $125-250 which is a good upfront investment before you dive into the costs of owning a pool that ends up being more of a headache than fun. These inspections are extremely thorough and while it doesn’t cover some things like testing water quality, there is a lot that it does cover.
When you get your pool inspected, you can expect the professional to look over pool safety, making sure walkways, fencing, electrical, and other aspects of the pool are in order. You can also expect them to look over your pool’s interior, the lighting situation, any tile or decking around the pool, the equipment such as pumps and filters, pool accessories, automation and remote-control functions, and even the rest of the yard. They’ll look it over for all kinds of quality issues and make sure you’re well-informed.
