Should You Opt For A Swimming Pool Inspection?

While your swimming pool may (on the surface) look perfectly clean and clear, you never really know what problems could exist underneath the surface or behind your pool’s lining and walls.

This is why a swimming pool inspection from a reputable pool service professional in Atlanta — like The Pool Butler– is highly recommended, especially if you have owned your pool for a few years or have never had regular maintenance performed on your pool in quite some time.

What Can You Expect From A Swimming Pool Inspection?

During a professional swimming pool inspection, your pool technician will be looking thoroughly for any signs of wear and tear or damage.

The reason it is advantageous to hire a professional to do this is — as opposed to inspecting yourself — is because a swimming pool technician has the experience and expertise to know exactly where to inspect and what signs to look for.

What Will Be Inspected

During your swimming pool inspection, your technician will check the size of your pool, along with its depth and type of construction materials used during its installation to determine any areas that may be in need of repair.

Some of the other most common inspection points for a swimming pool include:

  • The manufacture and age of your pool’s equipment
  • The PSI rating for your swimming pool pump
  • Pool accessories (including any diving boards or ladders)
  • All plumbing (in order to check for damaged parts or leaks)
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Heaters (if applicable)
  • Pool water

In addition to these items, your pool professional should also test your swimming pool filter and pump along with any automation items to ensure everything is in tip top shape.

Once the inspection has been completed, your technician should provide you with an itemized list, which will detail what specifically was tested/checked. This document should also let the pool owner know if any damage was found and where.
