Why do you need a swimming pool inspection?
Everyone cannot deny the fact that home inspection is an integral part of the home purchasing process. It is to ensure that the house a buyer is trying to purchase is still in good condition. Also, it will help both the buyer and seller know what to do during the negotiation.
So if the house has a swimming pool, a buyer needs to call a home inspection company to assess the swimming pool and its area. It is to make sure that the swimming pool is safe for everyone to swim and walk around. It is also to see if there are any significant or minor repairs needed for the swimming pool.
You need to know that the findings and recommendations during the swimming pool assessment will help both the buyer and seller on what to do with it. It can also help the buyer and seller decide on the selling price of the house.
How does home inspection work?
A home inspector assesses the swimming pool by checking not just the pool itself but the entire pool area, including the pool deck and the areas near it. The inspector will assess if the pool has enough security and safety measures around it, like checking the fencing, the foundation if there are any leakages and many other factors. Other pool parts will be inspected, such as the diving board, filters, pumps, heaters, plumbing, and other pool electrical components. Once the swimming pool assessment is finished, there will be a summary report that includes the findings and recommendations to help you decide what to do with the swimming pool.
