When Should You Get a Pool Inspection?
Pools bring a lot of joy to your home and your family and friends. They can be great entertainment for kids, adults, and even dogs! But if you're thinking about buying a home with a pool, it's extremely important to hire a pool inspector. You certainly don't want to inherit someone else's problem because of the decisions the previous homeowner made or ignored.
Here's when you should consider getting a pool inspection:
Anytime when buying a home!
When selling a home (if you want to get ahead of any potential issues)
If you're concerned about your pool's condition
For homeowners with an existing pool, here are some things you can check to determine if you need to hire a professional:
Check the equipment to make sure everything is secure and properly working.
Look out for any leaks or cracks to the foundation or liner.
Make sure all safety features are secure.
Check the decking to make sure it drains properly.
