We inspect Pools and Spas in accordance with ASHI Standards for Pool and Spa. Most pool/spa inspection companies focus mainly on the equipment only, but we inspect the entire visible pool and its surrounding components. The entire structure is examined to look for settlement or faults in the integrity of the construction. All of the mechanical systems and their individual parts are evaluated to determine their age, condition and serviceability.
The inspection includes observations of the following pool/spa components:
- Condition of interior shell surface materials
- Border coping, pool decks, steps
- Main drains, ports, spa jets
- Pumps, motors, blowers, automatic safety controls, visible piping and valves
- Heaters (gas & heat pumps)
- Cleaning system; Polaris/sweeper, skimmers, filter system & gauges, bleeder valve
- Water supply system to check for cross connections or auto fill valve leaks
- Electrical bonding for pump motors, blowers, heaters and other metal equipment
- Underwater lighting, GFCI receptacles, conduit, visible electrical components, timers, control panels, breakers and wiring
- Diving boards, slides, handrails and ladders
- Proper fencing enclosure and gate safety (required for insurance)
- Child safe; barriers, pool covers, door alarms, etc.
The report includes digital photos that address items of concern with recommendations for repairs. The inspector will review those items with the client at the time of the inspection and a report pdf link will be emailed usually the same day as the inspection, if not the next. It’s smart to have the property’s pool/spa inspected because the cost of repairing or replacing pool/spa components can often be expensive. Pools and spas should be a source of enjoyment and comfort, not a hole you throw money in. So be sure to have your pool/spa inspected by Conley Home Inspections prior to buying or selling!
