Does your dream home have a pool or spa? If so, allow Magnolia Home Inspection Services to perform a thorough assessment before you sign a purchase agreement. Our certified inspectors will determine the condition and safety of the pool and provide a dollar value on any repairs that might be needed.
Why Request a Pool Inspection?
Buying a new home with a pool or spa seems like a major perk! But time and lack of maintenance can quickly turn your pool into a money pit. Rather than risking your safety and incurring unexpected repair costs, request a pool inspection before you sign the purchase agreement. In a matter of minutes, our inspectors will know if the pool has been properly maintained or not. Then, we’ll issue you a dollar value estimate for potential repair costs so you can request repairs or negotiate a price adjustment on the sale of the home.
What Does an Inspection Include?
A typical pool inspection evaluates the following components: structural, mechanical, water quality, and safety.
- Structural components are the most expensive features to repair and include things like tile, coping, plaster, joints, and decking. Our inspectors will determine the age of the structure and determine if everything is in good repair (or not).
- Mechanical components include the elements that move the water, such as pumps, pipes, lines, and valves. We will test the pump and all other mechanical components to check for leaks and functionality. We will also evaluate the heater (if present), lights, switches, gauges, and other electrical features.
- Pool cleaning systems, including chemical feeders and filters, are essential for maintaining a sanitary environment. Our inspectors will evaluate these elements and inquire about the pool maintenance schedule to determine if the water chemistry and sanitation levels are adequate.
- Pool safety is a top priority for inspectors and homeowners, alike. We will assess the condition of all ladders, handrails, fences, and gates to make sure your pool is safe and in compliance with all local mandates.
