With extreme temperatures in the summer, approximately 1 family out of 4 has a pool in the Tampa Bay area. Pools can provide years of leisure, health enrichment and pleasure. Yet pools tend to be the most neglected aspect of a home/property. They can even become life threatening with safety issues, if not properly maintained and repaired. Even if the pool is maintained by a pool service, you cannot be assured that your pool is safe and in good working condition without a pool inspection. For more information on pool maintenance and information, please refer to our Pool Resource Page.
A pool inspection involves the examination of pool equipment (filter, pumps/motors, etc), the pool body, decking, coping, electrical, add-ons (such as heaters, diving boards, waterfalls, etc) as well as safety features such as pool fences, child safety gates, alarms and doors.
