We offer two types of pool/spa inspections, basic and complete.
This covers the basics on your pool/spa equipment and does not involve any disassembly or extensive operation. See below for details:
Identify type of construction;
Report as Deficient:
(i) the presence of a single blockable main drain (potential entrapment hazard);
(ii) a pump motor, blower, or other electrical equipment that lacks bonding;
(iii) the absence of or deficiencies in safety barriers;
(iv) water leaks in above-ground pipes and equipment;
(v) the absence or failure in performance of ground-fault circuit interrupter protection devices; and
(vi) deficiencies in:
(II) tiles, coping, and decks;
(III) slides, steps, diving boards, handrails, and other equipment;
(IV) drains, skimmers, and valves;
(V) filters, gauges, pumps, motors, controls, and sweeps;
(VI) lighting fixtures; and
(VII) the pool heater that these standards of practice require to be reported for the heating system.
The inspector is not required to:
(A) disassemble filters or dismantle or otherwise open any components or lines;
(B) operate valves;
(C) uncover or excavate any lines or concealed components of the system;
(D) fill the pool, spa, or hot tub with water;
(E) inspect any system that has been winterized, shut down, or otherwise secured;
(F) determine the presence of sub-surface water tables;
(G) determine the effectiveness of entrapment covers;
(H) determine the presence of pool shell or sub-surface leaks; or
(I) inspect ancillary equipment such as computer controls, covers, chlorinators or other chemical dispensers, or water ionization devices or conditioners other than required by this section.
This covers everything in the basic inspection plus thoroughly inspecting and testing ancillary components including necessary disassembly of some equipment.
**This inspection can be done independently without a home inspection. Additional fee may apply.

Freeze protection (Yes, even in the summer)
In-ground cleaners (Polaris,Letro, KreepyKrawler)
Backwash valves and termination
Return jets/proper circulation
Auto-fill water levelers
Spa air blowers
Chemical analysis of:
Salt (if equipped)
*Some components may not be inspected due to weather conditions, internet connection or inoperative control equipment.
*May not be able to verify if overflow drain or backwash drain line is operative/clear
Landscape irrigation (sprinkler) systems.
(1) The inspector shall:

(B) report as Deficient:
(i) the absence of a rain or moisture sensor,
(ii) inoperative zone valves;
(iii) surface water leaks;
(iv) the absence of a backflow prevention device;
(v) the absence of shut-off valves between the water meter and backflow device;
(vi) deficiencies in the performance and mounting of the controller;
(vii) missing or damaged components; and
(viii) deficiencies in the performance of the water emission devices; such as, sprayer heads, rotary sprinkler heads, bubblers or drip lines.
(2) The inspector is not required to inspect:
(A) for effective coverage of the irrigation system;
(B) the automatic function of the controller;
(C) the effectiveness of the sensors; such as, rain, moisture, wind, flow or freeze sensors; or

An Outbuilding is a structure subordinate to but not connected with the primary residence on a parcel of property. This may include a shed, garage, barn, cabana, pool house or cottage.
*Prices depend on size of structure and services to the structure; electric, gas, plumbing, and HVAC.
(1) The inspector shall report as Deficient the absence or failure in performance of ground-fault circuit interrupter protection devices in grade-level portions of unfinished accessory buildings used for storage or work areas, boathouses, and boat hoists; and
(2) The inspector shall report as Deficient deficiencies in the structural, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and cooling systems that these standards of practice require to be reported for the principal building.
