Just like a house, a poorly maintained or old pool can be costly to restore or repair. Adding a pool inspection to your home inspection service is a great value. Pools can have significant repair issues that can be expensive to fix. For example, resurfacing a pool can be as costly as installing a new roof.
It is important to document what is functioning properly. Many home buyers obtain a Home Warranty, so it is critical to document that items such as the pump or pool lights were functioning when you purchased the home. This way the warranty cannot claim “pre-existing conditions”.
Pools and spas can be very dangerous especially for small children and adults with long hair. We highly recommend that you have the pool inspected and take steps to secure the pool to prevent accidental drownings. Pool safety standards have changed numerous times over the years. Older pools especially should be inspected so that you are aware of what might not meet current safety standards. While a seller does not have to bring a pool built years ago to today’s standards, we think you should know what is required today. Let us identify those for you
