Swimming pools are high on the list of must-haves for homebuyers in the Sacramento area. Before purchasing a home with a pool or spa, however, schedule a professional pool inspection with United Property Inspectors, Inc. Our inspectors will provide you with a comprehensive report on the pool’s condition and necessary repairs so you can make an informed purchase.
4 Reasons to Schedule a Pool Inspection
Swimming pools can be expensive to repair. Alternatively, a professional inspection is a small price to pay for valuable insight into the quality and condition of your pool. A pool inspection is beneficial for four main reasons.
1. Avoid Fines
One of our top priorities is to ensure that the pool and the surrounding area are up to code. Sacramento County has specific regulations about pool and pool equipment location, safety features, enclosures, pool covers, suction outlets, and more. Our inspectors are well-educated on local regulations and will make sure your pool is up to code to help you avoid costly fines.
2. Repair Needs
Swimming pool repair needs can range from minor fixes to costly replacements. Our inspectors will go over every aspect of the pool to determine its condition and make recommendations for repairs or replacements.
3. Electrical Concerns
Additionally, our inspectors will evaluate the pool’s wiring and electrical components. Pool lights, pumps, heaters, and filters rely on electricity to do their job. We assess each of these components to determine how well they are functioning and if they are properly wired. This information helps buyers avoid surprise repair bills in the future and negotiate effectively at the time of sale.
Pool decks and patios also require regular maintenance and attention to maintain their integrity. You don’t want to purchase a home only to find that the pool deck is unsafe and needs repaired or replaced. Our easy-to-read inspection report provides valuable information about the integrity of the deck as well as changes that must be made to meet code and prevent further structural damage.
