Pool Inspection Services

​​A pool inspection is a routine run-through of all your pool’s equipment and surroundings, ranging from the efficiency of the filter to the safety of the deck. Especially if you close your pool for the winter, scheduling a swimming pool inspection when you open your pool in the spring is a great way to ensure everything is still performing properly. Pools are a lot of fun, but they can be dangerous if not maintained; the best way to protect yourself and your guests from injury is by keeping up with annual pool inspections.  Pool inspections are useful to both first-time pool owners and also ongoing operations. The inspection can be used to help define the various components and installed systems as well as to discuss safety and operation.

The inspection of the pool and its operating equipment is well beyond the scope of a regular home inspection, but Pool Coach is qualified to provide these specialized inspections. We conduct thorough visual inspections that identify costly, unsafe issues.  A pool and spa inspection provides peace of mind that you will be able to enjoy the pool for years.
