Your pool and hot tub are relatively complex systems that may have numerous seals, moving parts and other components that can wear down with time and regular use. Accordingly, repairs may be needed based on expected wear and tear.
However, sometimes an undetected problem with installation or a slip-up in maintenance can lead to additional, unexpected repairs.
The inspector might find that the lining is worn out, that the surfacing is deteriorating or that the walls are cracking. Repairs to the pool’s main structure easily can cost thousands of dollars.
Sometimes, it is the equipment that is used with the pool & spa that shows signs of wear. Components such as the motor, pump, filter or heater all can have problems. Many of these will need to be replaced during the life of the pool. These generally are less expensive to repair or replace than a structural issue, but they do still need to be addressed for your family to make the most out of the pool.
Another relatively common problem is plumbing leaks. Water may be pumped from the pool through a number of pipes. It must travel through the heater, filter and potentially other components. With all of these pipes and other plumbing components, leaks are almost guaranteed to happen at some point. Fortunately, an inspector is trained to look for these issues.
Are your pool and hot tub set up to be as safe as possible? Our inspectors are trained to identify any potential safety issues that may cause problems for your family or anyone else who might gain access to your pool area.
In general, it’s wise to provide a fence or other barrier around the pool and hot tub to ensure that unauthorized or unattended people or children cannot get into your pool. This protects you from expensive liability issues. Our inspectors will let you know if your fencing isn’t up to accepted safety standards.
The inspector further will look at the electrical systems, including GFCIs, which are associated with the pool. Railings, ladders, and steps will be examined for potential problems, and the lighting system will be reviewed from a safety standpoint.
