What type of report is provided?
The computer generated pool inspection report combines a narrative description of the pool, our observations and recommendations, an easy to read checklist to highlight the condtion of the major components and digital pictures. Items that require repair are clearly identified and recommendations for proper maintenance are provided. The report is typically e-mailed to you within two business days.
Can pool inspections be performed in the winter?
YES! Although the ideal inspection is performed on a pool that is open with the equipment operating, an inspection can still be performed on a closed pool. Portions of the cover are removed and a thorough visual inspection is made of the pool and its equipment. It is estimated that a winter inspection covers over 90% of the items included in an open pool inspection. We have performed many winter inspections and frequently saved our clients from unexpected problems and expense.
