That is why you should hire a pool inspector to take a look at your pool and give an honest, totally neutral opinion on the condition of it. When selling a house in New Jersey with a swimming pool you will probably be required to get it inspected. If you are buying a house with a swimming pool you will want it inspected as a condition of the purchase. Hiring someone who only inspects pools and does not build pools, eliminates the problem of “conflict of interest” or professional pool inspector vs pool builder.

Calling NJ Pool Inspector to evaluate the condition of your swimming pool assures you of a completely neutral opinion and an unbiased report.

Mahwah NJ Pool Inspection

In order to fully enjoy a pool, you want to know that the pool and spa (if included) are in good working order. Most home inspections do not include this service, but a pool inspection provides information that helps you make an informed decision prior to any property purchase.  Pool and spa inspections are essential.

 

What Is Included in a Pool Inspection?

 

A pool inspection should include an evaluation of the following:

  • gates and fences, ladders, railings, diving boards, slides – and spa
  • pump equipment including motors, filters, heaters, chlorinators, pressure and drains
  • the deck and coping surrounding the pool
  • the inside surface of the pool, liners, edging, skimmers

COMMON CONCERNS FOUND DURING A POOL INSPECTION

Compounding Your Responsibility When Owning a Pool

 

pool inspection mahwah njHaving a home with a backyard swimming pool is one of life’s great pleasures. It also brings greater responsibility to you as a homeowner. Keeping a pool and spa or hot tub in good, functioning form is important, and before you open that pool to your family and friends, you should have it inspected by a professional. When you get a pre-purchase home inspection, a pool is often not included in the service. Calling in a specialist is the best way to get a pool inspection. Below are some common concerns found during a pool inspection.

 

Common Problems That Arise In A Pool Inspection

 

Inadequate protective fencing around the pool

Fences surrounding a pool should be a certain height to discourage unwanted access. Drowning is a risk for everyone, but especially for children. There are state and local government regulations for pool barriers which are applicable to your area. NJ Pool Inspector is always current with local rules applied to the inspection of pools.

Inadequate protection for pool electrical equipment

This is also something determined by state and local laws. A pool inspector has to be aware of these regulations. This component of pool management is complicated and includes things such as wiring, receptacles and switches, circulation system, light fixtures, and more.

Damaged steps, ladders, diving boards or slides

Entry to the pool must be accessible to children and older adults, as well as everyone else. A lot of newer pools don’t have diving boards or slides as they present liability problems. While older pools often do have these accessories, all pools have steps and ladders. This equipment needs to be inspected for usability.

Cracks or other damage to surrounding deck and exterior surface

Cracks are not only unsightly, they can cause injury. In some cases the decking that surrounds a pool is slippery when it gets wet and should be inspected and probably replaced. Proper drainage around the pool is also a matter that needs to be seen to.

Damage to interior surface of the pool

This is an area where repairs can be expensive. If an inspector finds cracks or stains in the interior surface of a pool they usually recommend repair. These issues may need to be evaluated by a pool building firm. Pool inspectors do not repair pools, they only inspect and then make recommendations based upon what they find. This prevents a conflict of interest regarding the inspection.
