When buying or selling a home, a residential pool or spa inspection is vital to ensure the safety and longevity of the pool and its equipment. Pools and spas can be expensive to maintain and repair, as well as introduce various safety concerns.
Part of the pool inspection will include a visual inspection and basic operation of the equipment used to operate the pool or spa, including motors, pumps, valves, filters, and heating systems. The equipment will be inspected for defects such as leaks in exposed plumbing, deficient heating and electrical, and other malfunctioning components. A pool inspection will introduce the idea of safety, and longevity of its equipment. This will assist in knowing what repairs are needed, or if complete replacement of equipment is necessary.
With all pools and spas, safety is a major concern. There are even certain federal and state laws requiring safety measures with all pools and spas. Pool inspections require devices to ensure that proper safety features are present and in good working condition. Electrical components are another safety concern, and the inspector will look over all visible and accessible electrical equipment to verify that the appropriate safety standards are met. Lastly, steps and ladders, or any other points of egress, will be inspected for defects to ensure they follow local regulations.
Just as important as the pool or spa, is the surrounding area. Making sure that pool and spa regulations are being followed in the surround area will minimize risk of injury. With an inspection, inspectors will determine if the home is compliant with all local regulation regarding pool and spa safety. The inspector will give specific instructions to help improve the area before buying or selling the home. This might include safety barriers, fencing, coping, and sidewalks.
A pool inspection must be ordered in conjunction with a home inspection.
