Pools and Spas
In addition to the standard home inspection, I also offer Pool and Spa inspections. A Pool and Spa inspection can be bundled with a home inspection, or be done as a 'stand-alone' inspection.
These inspections are a great value, as pools and their accompanying systems can have significant repair issues that may be expensive to fix. You also need to be sure that the pool is safe for your family to use.
Just like a home inspection, a pool inspection involves a visual assessment of the accessible systems and components.
What is included:
Shell, deck, tile, and coping surface condition
Condition and operation of mechanical components including pumps, heaters, and filters
Condition of all exposed piping and valves
Exposed electrical, including outlets, GFCI protection, and equipment bonding

Equipment operation (using standard controls) to confirm proper operation, skimming, jet pumps and blowers
Presence of safety drain covers
What is not included:
All underground electrical and plumbing
Pool body and decorative components such as tile, paint, and special coatings
Chemical water treatment systems
