Pool Time Preparations
Pools are always a fun time to spend with family, but unfortunately as a Home Inspector in west texas, the maintenance and safety of the swimming pool is sometimes disregarded.
As a full service inspection company, we want to help! Read on to see some helpful tips that will help keep your pool safe, as well as looking and working well throughout the year!
Make sure that the pool is properly secured from unwanted guests (and liabilities!!)
Having the gates open away from the pool and having the locking mechanism at the correct height at all of the entrances is a good way to make sure the perimeter of the pool is secured. This is relatively simple to correct, and not very expensive!
Perception is Reality to any potential buyer.
Making sure that the minor details such as cracks in the decking and coping of the pool and pool accessories are not overlooked will keep the maintenance to a minimum.
Here in Midland Tx pools are a commodity and are more common than expected. The water from the surrounding area is heavy in hard minerals and can affect the pools filtering system. Having the correct chemicals in the pool with affect the clarity and cleanliness of the pool.
Water can be the life of the party or the demise of the surrounding areas of the pool. Water will get in the cracks in the decking and copping and cause spalling or in the winter can be affected by the freeze/thaw cycle.
Sealing the cracks in pool decking will help prevent future damage and repairing or painting any areas that have begun to rust will increase the longevity of the areas.
There are no second chances at first impressions.
Make a list for monthly check-ups so you can stay on top of the overall maintenance of the pool. This will make sure everything is up to par and can potentially keep the out of pocket expenses down with the preventative measures taken. West Texas is known for being hot and dry, having a properly working safe pool is the best thing to have for these temperatures.
