Pool & Spa Inspections

Protect your purchase of a swimming pool, spa or hot tub

Whether you’re purchasing a new home or already have a pool of your own, getting regular pool and spa inspections can save you frustration and money. Swimming pools and spas are fun, but with that fun comes additional maintenance and potential safety hazards to consider. By choosing a swimming pool inspection, you’re making safety a priority for you and your family.

Trained All Atlanta | AmeriSpec Inspectors examine your pool and spa in two separate parts: visually and mechanically. The visual pool and spa inspection includes looking over pool equipment, the pool surface and construction, electrical power (including pool lighting), and any safety issues immediately surrounding the pool. The pool and spa inspection reviews the important equipment as it cycles.
Common components of a pool and spa inspection may include:

  • Skimmers
  • Filters
  • Permanent and temporary pool covers
  • Heaters
  • Filters
  • Pressure gauge
  • Supply piping
  • Pumps
  • Timers and controls
  • Chemical Feed and Controls
  • Safety measures
  • Fencing and Barriers

Pools, hot tubs and spas can add value and enjoyment to your home. But they can also be expensive to repair if problems are ignored. Proper routine maintenance is important in keeping your pool or spa in their best condition. From properly using chemical treatments to safely operating electrical systems, there are many components that work together for your swimming pool or hot tub. Hiring a qualified professional for a pool inspection can help prevent and identify problems before they become major issues.
And if you are purchasing a new home with a swimming pool, it always pays to understand completely what you are buying. While some repairs may be minor, other issues can be more significant. Rely on a qualified and trained expert to inspect your pool or spa to inform you before your purchase.

  • Incorrect ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs)
  • Damaged or non functioning lights
  • Improperly installed junction boxes or wiring

  • By working with a qualified and trained All Atlanta | AmeriSpec swimming pool inspector, you can be educated as to the true condition of the pool and all its components.
Atlanta Pool Inspection

Have your own list of questions or concerns about the property you’re considering buying or selling, and Talk to the inspection company in advance. Or the inspector at the inspection. This will ensure that the clients concerns will be addressed and that any special arrangements can be made ahead of time.
Real estate agents should instruct sellers to ensure that all areas of the home are easily accessible to the inspector. For example, if the attic access point is inside a closet, all clothes and belongings should be removed for ease of entry and exit.

If you’re a homebuyer, it’s especially important to be present during the inspection, especially the last hour. By being there with the inspector and paying close attention, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Have all of your questions and concerns addressed as they arise.
  • Understand the condition of each key component throughout the house and property, helping establish a better understanding of the home and the resulting inspection report.
  • Truly understand any concerns you may have about the Inspection findings that look worse on paper than they really are. Save time and avoid frustration by learning about the function of your new home. You may find out how the heating system works, how to light pilot lights, how to turn on various appliances and components, and where shut-offs are located. The inspector can also point out maintenance needs and procedures, and explain how and when to check on specific items that need periodic maintenance

Read your home inspection report thoroughly. If you have concerns or need clarification—no matter how minor the issue may seem—never hesitate to reach out to your home inspector to find out more.

All Atlanta AmeriSpec Inspectors are always willing to go the extra mile to help put your mind at ease. Whether you choose to hire All Atlanta AmeriSpec Inspection Services or not, please be sure to use a qualified, trained professional to conduct your home inspection. A home purchase is the investment of a lifetime, and you deserve to have complete confidence in your financial decision.
