We are proud to offer home buyers, home sellers, and Realtors pool and spa inspections as an additional service to add value and knowledge to your pre-purchase or pre-listing home inspection options.
- Provide inspection reports that cover detail of the structure and equipment, the current condition and function.
- A modern report with photos and videos making it easy to recognize the issues that should be addressed.
- Include links to websites of rules and regulations pertinent to any issues being address in the report.
- A written comprehensive pool inspection report within 24 hours of the on-site inspection.
- Offer to schedule the pool inspection at the same time the home inspection is done to provide a verbal review and answer any questions while Realtors and buyers are present, if applicable.
Some home inspectors offer a “limited visual pool inspection” when they do a home inspection. The objective of these inspections is to determine if the pool and related equipment may benefit from a more thorough inspection by a qualified pool specialist.
If your offer to buy a home with a pool is accepted, it is important that not only you have a home inspection done by a professional, but also that you have a pool inspection done by a certfied pool inspector, not a home inspector who is using this service to increase revenue.

- Tile and grouting
