Why Do You Need A Swimming Pool Inspection?

Pool inspection

Swimming pools are unique and have a set of standards that many home inspectors are not qualified to assess.  Purchasing a home is a big decision.  The condition of the swimming pool is just as important as the condition of the home.  A pool is a wonderful addition and can often add value to your home, but you don't want to buy someone's money pit, right? 

Having the pool inspected by a fully insured NSPF Pool & Hot Tub Alliance Certified Swimming Pool Inspector before you purchase your home will offer peace of mind and confidence in your purchase.  Top real estate agents always recommend getting your pool inspected by a professional swimming pool inspector, because detailed knowledge of the pool can not only affect your future happiness with your home, it can also affect the final price.

Inspection FAQ

  • How can I contact you? 

You can fill out the form above, email me at, or call/text 727-501-4445.  I return calls and texts within 30 minutes during business hours. 

  • What hours are you available?

I understand that your pool inspection can be time sensitive, so I'm normally available 7 days a week, between 9 am  - 7 pm.  Many times your appointment can be done the next day.   

  • What does your inspection cover?

Your pool inspection covers a multitude of areas such as the pool, plumbing, pump motor, filter, deck, tile and grout, and much more.  Before your inspection, you'll receive an emailed PDF form that covers that in detail. 

  • How long have you been in the pool business?

I started in the pool business in 1995 in Arizona.  I had a great pool route for many years where I weekly cleaned and maintained over 50 residential and commercial pools.  I also installed and repaired dozens of filtration systems during that time.  In 2007 I became the pool operator/supervisor for the YMCA in Albany, OR.  This was a 125,000 gallon commercial salt pool with over 7,000 swimmers per month.  

  • How long does your inspection last?

You can budget for about 1 - 2 hours.  This depends on the pool, features, and components involved.  Each situation and pool is different.

  • Can I be there for the inspection?

Absolutely!!  I encourage you to be there.  It's your house and pool and you should be involved.  

  • Are you certified and insured?

Yes.  Just scroll up a bit and you'll see my certification from the nationally recognized Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (formally known as the National Swimming Pool Foundation).  

  • Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

As per Florida Statutes, I am advised to refrain from personally conducting any repairs or offering any advice on improvements.  A home pool and spa inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.  Due to the nature of swimming pools, your inspection report cannot show conditions of any component or system that is not readily accessible.    

  • How long will it take to receive my inspection report?

Your inspection report is typically ready in 24 hours of the on-site inspection.  If the appointment is early enough, in many cases you can expect your report the same day.  Standard practice is for the report to be sent via email as a PDF attachment.  

  • What happens after the pool inspection?

After you receive your report, you can contact your real estate agent to discuss the findings and the best way to move forward in your decision. 

  • How much does a normal pool inspection cost?

Cost is $280.   

  • What kinds of payments do you take?

I'm equipped to take credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal.  Cash is preferred.
