Hire a true Pool Professional:
Don't take your Realtors word for it or the Sellers word for it...You will get the short end of the stick. The worst part is that you will never know what's wrong until you hire a professional. Unfortunately most "pool guys" are not Licensed contractors and have no business offering an inspection. Moreover these "pool guys" being unlicensed likely do not have the experience nor are they up to date with current codes and regulations.
Check state license here before you contract a pool professional for your inspection. The pool industry as whole is filled with imposters and people claiming they have the knowledge. It's likely they have a county license to perform business that doesn't require regulation. A few example of unregulated industries: Pressure washing, Landscaping, tree trimming, pool cleaning,
People like to hide things from potential buyers, realtors, home inspectors, ect... We dig deep into all the systems of the swimming pool on the home you are ready to buy. Don't fall in love with the house until you have the pool inspected. Sometimes seemingly small problems can cost a fortune in the long run. Often sellers lie to buyers..."oh that part is $10 online", just replace it and it will work again. Seriously if that were the case then they would've fixed it before listing the house for sale.
At this point the buyer is head over heals in love with the house and will choose to over look the actual cost for the fix/repair/replacement. It's best to hire a licensed pool professional to evaluate your swimming pool before signing all the documents to purchase the house because you can't take your signature back. Unfortunately home inspectors are not qualified to inspect swimming pools, call us today to schedule an appointment.
