So, you might be wondering, how does a TREC pool inspection work?
We look at dozens of components related to the swimming pool during the inspection: our main focus is safety.
Safety should be the #1 priority of any pool owner:
2021 - there were 6,800 pool related injuries to children under 15 in the U.S.!
2017 - 2019 - an average of 389 pool related Deaths to children under 15 in the U.S.!
#1 - is electrical safety - in a nutshell, everything connected to a pool should be GFCI protected. Simple defects like loose conduit can be dangerous, but are also generally an easy fix!
#2 - is the condition of the pool itself: cracks in the pool surface can quickly expand, creating further damage and even make the pool beyond repair!
#3 - Condition of installed components: each pool is different, but generally will include some of the same basic features. Improperly installed items can have a limited useful life, or could even damage other components of the pool!
#4 - Equipment malfunctions: this could include the pump, heater, filter, etc. It's not unusual for us to observe one or several of these items that does not function properly or at all. Leaks are also a common defect we fine!
#5 - Other components of the pool and pool area: this might include a diving board, ladder, slide, etc. Items not correctly installed or damaged could result injury!
#6 - And possibly MOST important (just ask your insurance agent!) - is the security of the pool area! As crazy as it sounds - if you own or are responsible for the pool, it's possible that you're liable; even if someone trespasses and gets injured or worse on your property. (Good ol' American legal system hard at work!) This is why door locks, alarms, and gate locks/latches that are child resistant are so important! Many times we observe that these are easily overlooked by homeowners!
