Pool Inspection

Are you looking at a new home with a beautiful, outdoor space complete with a pool and spa? Did a hurricane roll through town and damage your pool? A pool is a significant investment. Obtaining a pool inspection on that investment is an important step that should not be skipped when purchasing a new home with an existing pool. On the other hand, when damage occurs, a pool inspection is needed for insurance purposes as well.

 

POOL INSPECTION PROCESS

When obtaining a pool inspection, you will need to supply your insurance agent with a damage report, a cause and origin report, and a cost estimate for the necessary repairs. Make sure that you hire a dedicated pool inspector, not just a home inspector who will add it to his checklist for the house. An actual pool inspector will be able to provide the extra technical knowledge needed to accurately evaluate the pool and its equipment.

If you do hire an inspector to look at your pool, please feel free to contact us at 1-866-LAGASSE with any concerns or questions regarding your inspector’s report/quote. LaGasse Pools and Service is a family run company, and we will treat you as family when looking at the inspection report with you.

REASONS FOR NEEDING AN INSPECTION

Pool inspections are needed for a variety of reasons. The best reason being that you are looking to purchase a home with an existing pool. It is imperative that you get an inspection on that pool and spa, equipment, and deck/cage just as you would get a full inspection on the house before escrow closes.

On the other hand, an inspection is needed for not very pleasant reasons as well. Damage to the pool or spa due to:

  • Hurricane (wind and flood) damage
  • Flood damage
  • Cracking plaster
  • Fire damage
  • Soot and ash in the pool

 

Whatever the reason for seeking a pool inspection, an expert evaluation of the pool and spa’s condition is a necessity. Don’t try to save a few dollars by skipping the inspection by a certified pool inspector. It could cost you much more in the future if you are unaware of current issues with the pool.
