Buying A Backyard Oasis
Pool/spa inspections are conducted according to Standards set by the Texas Real Estate Commission. The inspection includes an overview of the visible areas of the Pool/Spa, Equipment, Systems, and Electrical components.
At DualCheck Inspections we are Certified Pool Operators (CPO) and Certified Pool Inspectors (CPI). Just as a home inspection informs you about the condition of the home, a pool & Spa inspection informs you about the condition of the pool/Spa.
This service can be included with an initial inspection or it can be conducted independently.
The intent of a pool inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible pool components and the inspection consists of four primary areas of concern:
Pool & Spa Placement and Protection.
This includes fencing, gates, screen enclosure, proximity to electrical wires, location of electrical outlets and placement to the home.
Pool & Spa and Coping.
This 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-entrapment covers for safety reasons.
Pool & Spa Equipment.
This includes inspection of pool/spa lights, the presence of GFCI devices, junction box, pumps, filters, piping, timers, disconnects, heaters, controls, accessories, skimmers, and the appropriate electrical bonding is in place.
Pool & Spa Equipment Operation.
This includes operation of the pump, inspection for leakage, proper filtration, heater activation, filter pressure and the operation of the spa blower.
