A Florida pool is a must for some homeowners.
It is a major pricing factor for home values. A home with a pool
will most likely appraise for $15,000 more. A home without a pool
will likely appraise for $15,000 less. If the market value of homes
in your neighborhood is $150,000 a home with a pool will be worth
165k while one without 135k. Would you purchase a secondhand
$30,000 car without an inspection?
It is estimated that 39% of all Florida homes have
swimming pools. According to an FSU survey of all
Florida county property appraisers in 2006, there were 1,093,655
pools in Florida. In Central Florida, Orange
County had the highest number of pools at 61,096, followed by
Seminole County at 38,086, Volusia County at
27,622 and Lake County with 14,089 swimming
We inspect new and existing pools and spas. This is a non-invasive visual inspection. The Inspector will evaluate the pool and /or spa, its current condition and all accessible components. After the pool inspection, we will present you with a comprehensive inspection report. Our pool / spa inspection report includes deficiency findings and our recommendations for the following items:
Placement and protection - includes
fencing, gates, screen enclosure, proximity to electrical wires,
location of electrical outlets and placement to the home.
Vessel and coping - includes the pool and deck surface condition (cracks, discoloration, and pitting) and the coping surrounding the pool (open joints, cracking). Drains are inspected for the presence of anti-vortex covers for safety reasons.
Equipment - includes inspection of pool / hot tub lights, the presence of GFCI devices, junction box condition and location, pumps, filters, piping, timers, disconnects, heaters, controls, accessories, skimmers, and that the appropriate electrical bonding is in place.
Operation - includes operation of the pump, inspection for leakage, proper skimming and filtration, heater activation, filter pressure and the operation of the spa blower.
Pool / Spa inspection is particularly beneficial and should be done at the same time as your home inspection, or after installation of the new pool or spa.
