HomeCheck performs "Deep Dive" Pool Inspections. pardon the pun...
That's because Pools can be deceiving!
They can look great and actually be on their last leg and some pools can look horrible and just need a little love! (see photos above- YES - all the same pool!)
Allow us to be the judge!
Because most pools fall somewhere in the middle, it takes a well seasoned, trained professional to make an accurate assessment.
Hundreds of points will be inspected, tested and observed. If you are a first time pool owner or a pool pro, the detailed report from HomeCheck's Pool Inspection will be an invaluable resource now and into the future for you to identify the components, understand how it works and what to look and look out for!
Even winterized pools should be inspected. Although they are usually covered and can not be operated the parts, piping, mechanicals and the pool itself can still be inspected and a valuable report produced.
