Pool Inspection

  • Visible plumbing systems

  • Visible electrical and grounding systems

  • Spas

  • Rescue equipment

  • Permanent accessories

  • Physical condition of the pool structure, interior, and materials (surface, wall, tile, liner, floor)

  • Operational Conditions

  • Safety barriers, fences, and decking

  • Screen enclosures and doors

The inspector will include all details and findings along with the home inspection report. That way, you will know what is in need of repairs or replacement prior to closing.
