A pool inspection can be as beneficial to commercial pools as they are in the case of residential pools. At AAA Home Inspections, we possess the ability and the equipment to conduct both types of pool inspections.
For commercial pools, a pool inspection is primarily aimed at finding out if the pool is built and managed according to the local regulation laws. While the inspection is visual, it can be incredibly revealing and the inspection report will usually contain some serious advice about making your pool a safe body of water that is fit for use by anyone and everyone.
Besides the primary task of determining if a commercial poolside is up to the standards laid out by the local regulatory authority, a pool inspection can also enable the controlling organizations to run their pool more economically and efficiently.
In fact, at AAA Home Inspections, we even produce an Aquatic Facility Plan for each of our commercial customers. This plan contains information about the procedures and daily maintenance processes and tips that can enable you to run your commercial pool with maximum efficiency. Please note that such an Aquatic Facility Plan is not a part of the standard pool inspection service and will come at an additional charge.
On the other hand, the primary purpose of residential pool inspections is to help homeowners or buyers know when there is something wrong with their pool. Since no pre-purchase inspections cover the inspection of the pool, if you are purchasing a property with an attached pool, it is a superb idea to get it inspected by a professional.
While a pool inspection does not include the testing and inspection of pipes and plumbing fixtures dedicated to the pool, it still can be truly revealing and can potentially save thousands of dollars in repairs for homeowners or buyers.
With that said, a pool inspection can only take place when the pool is in functional condition. This means that the pool cover is removed, it is filled with water, the water and chemistry are leveled, all the electronic and plumbing systems are running, and the deepest point of the pool or the point of drainage is clearly visible under the water. It is also a good idea to prepare yourself with the details of any upgrades or repairs that you may have gotten done to your pool in the past.
Moreover, if our inspector does notice any signs of leakage during their visual inspection of your pool, rest assured that you will be informed about the same. However, if there are no visible signs and you would still like to get these components of your pool inspected, you can get it done as an additional service.
