The Importance Of A Pool Inspection Before Buying Or Selling A Home

Many homes in Florida are complete with swimming pools, which undoubtedly add to the home’s appeal. Whether you are buying a home with a swimming pool or selling one, it’s important to do your due diligence for the safety of everyone involved. Evolve Property Inspections has been keeping families safe with our comprehensive pool and spa inspections since 2012. Let’s talk about what happens during pool inspections and why they are so important.

Pool and Spa Inspections

Why You Shouldn’t Skip the Pool Inspection

If you plan on selling your home, then you need to have your pool inspected to avoid hindering the sale due to issues with your pool. That way you can make any necessary repairs before you list your property, and it won’t have a negative effect on your real estate transaction. If you are planning to purchase a home that has a swimming pool, you need an inspection in order to have an accurate appraisal of the pool and an awareness of any necessary repairs and costs.

What’s Included in a Pool Inspection?

At Evolve Property Inspections, our certified master inspectors are members of InterNACHI and follow their standards of practice for our pool and spa inspections. From the ground level, we will inspect the plumbing, filters, lights, adjoining structures to the pool or spa, valves, solar heating system, pumps and motors, electrical system, filtration system, pool heater, and safety barriers. We will look for any signs of leaks, damaged water lines, faulty drain covers, pumps, poor drainage, improper settlement of the pool deck, and any visible safety issues. We pay special attention to faulty wiring, poorly attached ladders, failing steps, loose railings, and dangerous diving boards.
