Pool Equipment Inspections
A visual inspection and basic operation of the equipment used to operate the pool or spa, such as motors, pumps, valves, filters, and heating systems, will be part of the pool inspection. The equipment will be assessed for flaws such as exposed plumbing leaks, inadequate heating and electrical systems, and other faulty components. A pool inspection will introduce the concept of pool safety and equipment longevity. This will help determine what repairs are required, as well as whether complete replacement of the equipment is required.
Inspecting For Safety
Safety is a crucial concern with all pools and spas. There are also federal and state laws that require safety precautions for all pools and spas. Pool and spa inspections necessitate the use of instruments to check that all necessary safety elements are present and in excellent functioning order. Another safety concern is electrical components, and the inspector will evaluate all visible and accessible electrical equipment to ensure that the relevant safety standards are met. Finally, stairs and ladders, as well as any other points of egress, will be inspected for flaws to ensure that they comply with local standards.
Pool Area Inspection
The surrounding area is just as significant as the pool or spa. Making certain that pool and spa laws are observed in the surrounding area will reduce the danger of injury. Inspectors will conduct an inspection to see if the residence complies with all local regulations governing pool and spa safety. Before buying or selling a home, the inspector will provide specific suggestions to help enhance the area. This could incorporate things like safety barriers, fences, coping, and sidewalks.
