Pool & Spa Inspections
When Purchasing A Property With A Pool Or Spa, It’s Important To Understand The Value And Potential Costs That Come With Such A Luxury
Whether you own a pool, spa, or a combination of all of these, inspections are crucial to understand what is needed to maintain them. When selling a home, it is important to know the value of your system. When buying, it’s equally important to know what you are purchasing, and the costs associated with it.
Do I Need A Pool Or Spa Inspection?
If you are considering buying a home with a pool/spa, an inspection is critical. A full inspection of these features can determine if there are any underlying issues that could cost you big in the future.
Pool maintenance begins with a full pool/spa inspection. An inspection can help identify any hazards and/or needed repairs, as well as present options for keeping your pool or spa in good condition. This proactive approach will save thousands in potential repair costs. As your pool ages, you’ll also need periodic inspections to evaluate any normal wear on the pool and associated mechanical elements.
If the property you are considering buying has been affected by flood, an inspection is vital. Flooding can leave the pool or spa with mud and debris, which essentially clogs the plumbing system. Droughts are also devastating to pools and spas, causing cracks within the plaster or decking.

Diagnosing Pool Problems
At GreenWorks, Safety Is Our Main Concern
The pool inspection process is thorough and meticulous by design. Our inspectors have a long list of items to check when testing a pool or spa. First, the age and manufacturer will be identified. This helps the inspector know which warning signs to look for, such as cracks in the surface. Our inspectors will also do a thorough examination of ladders, diving boards, and railings to ensure that they are securely fastened. Filter casings are also examined to confirm they are in proper working order.
For commercial properties such as hotels, an annual pool inspection is required to ensure guest safety. Commercial pool inspections can save you thousands in repairs and potential lawsuits. Electricity and plumbing are just some of the issues that will need to be checked regularly in a commercial pool setting.
In both residential and commercial pool inspections, the water will be tested for proper levels of chlorine and other substance, as well as the equipment inspected. If a problem with filtration or water pressure is discovered, the inspector will recommend additional consideration by a leak detection specialist.
