Buying A Home With A Pool? Here’s Why You Need A Home Inspection

If you are buying a home in Sarasota, there’s a pretty good chance it has a pool. While pools are a fantastic addition to your home, especially on those scorching summer days, they can unfortunately turn into costly messes if something goes wrong. If you are considering buying a home that has a pool, we strongly recommend that you get a pool inspection done. While the pool might look fine at first glance, there often can be underlying issues that only a pool inspection will uncover, especially with older pools.

La Maison Home Inspections offers professional and certified pool inspections in Sarasota and Manatee County.

Many people think that just having a regular home inspection done also covers the pool area, but the pool is not looked at in detail during a regular home inspection. You need someone who is knowledge about pools and the complex equipment that run them.  A pool inspection must be performed by a Certified Pool Contractor, who is licensed by the state.  All inspectors qualified to perform a pool inspection should provide you with their CPC number.

A pool inspection report will include the following:

  • Plumbing system
  • Electrical system
  • Control system
  • Filters
  • Pumps
  • Heaters
  • Pressure testing
  • Coping and tile
  • Drains
  • Water levels
  • Slides/Diving boards

We also look for any signs of leaks.

Pool repairs can turn into thousands of dollars, so it is very important that you get a professional pool inspection done when you are buying a home.

La Maison Home Inspections provide professional and certified pool and home inspections in Sarasota/Manatee region. We also build custom homes, so we know what to look for and what issues are important. Contact us today to schedule your inspection!
