It is always exciting to acquire a home, especially when there are a recreational pool and spa in the property. The quality of leisure that becomes accessible provides long-term enjoyment and adds value to the home as an investment. It may seem simple, but the home inspection industry takes a different approach in ensuring the maintenance of these facilities. In as much as it is expensive to preserve these amenities, it is even more costly to repair them. Thus, inspection is crucial for one to know what problems need repair (if any) and which ones should be addressed immediately. Bullseye Home Inspection Houston, Texas, provides a host of services in the home inspection industry, and providing pool and spa inspection is one of them.
There are two main guiding factors in inspecting a swimming pool and spa: full pool and damaged swimming pool inspection. A full pool inspection will determine any safety or mechanical issues that are present and identify steps to diminish risks. The inspector will check the following during a full pool and spa inspection:
-Slip-resistant deck and steps
-Proper sloping of surface
-Interior finish materials
-Ladders and handrails
-Filter, heaters, and drains
-Pumps and motors
-Surface drainage and retaining walls
-Safety barriers and alarms
There are many more elements not listed that will be checked as well. Basically, the goal is to provide an elaborate inspection that will preserve the pool’s best qualities. However, if the damage is present, we must also weigh the safety of the pool and decide if it is reasonable to maintain or renovate.
Unforeseen weather conditions that are extreme can also cause damage—from cracks to a clogged drain. A damage inspection will determine the need for repair of the pool and/or spa and its remaining lifespan. Damage control will also mitigate the potential defects on the pool and spa facilities.
The age of the property along with the amenities will also contribute to the focus of the inspection. Pools and spas are intended for enjoyment and convenience. Therefore, inconveniences must be avoided as much as possible in order to experience maximum and long-term fulfillment from these amenities.
