Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera Pool Inspection Examples


I. Electrical Connections
Infrared Thermal Imaging Cameras help to find defects and faults in the electrical panel that pool pumps and heaters require to operate effectively. Hot connections are a sign of a defect that can result in wasted electricity, fire, and even severe electric shock. By using a Thermal Imaging Camera during your pool inspection, NJ Pool Inspector is able to find any potential hot spots or defects in your pools electrical panel.


II. Motor Temperature
A pool pump motor is a vital piece of your home’s pool operations. Without a pump, stagnant water can become algae filled and unsafe to swim in. This essential piece of equipment is important to thoroughly inspect during a pool inspection. Using an Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera, NJ Pool Inspectors are able to discover any overheating conditions of your pool pump’s motor. Overheating can be caused by friction or electrical faults. Regardless of the cause, an overheating motor will eventually become a non-working motor. By catching the overheating motor early, you can make repairs rather than a full replacement.


III. Water Heater
Water heaters are an important part of a New Jersey swimming pool. While not necessary, the convenience and leisure of having a water heater for your pool can help you enjoy your pool earlier and for longer! However, as with any equipment, a pool heater needs to be inspected to ensure proper operation and condition. Using Infrared Camera Imaging during a pool inspection, NJ Pool Inspector can check input and output temperatures of the water heater. Also, similar to the pool pump mentioned above, an Infrared Camera pool inspection can help discover any faults or ‘hot-spots’ in the electrical connections for your water heater saving you from a dangerous and expensive situation.
