London Pool Inspections

For many homeowners in London, the ideal living space includes a swimming pool. In a residential space, a pool can help to make the most out of summer by getting exercise and hosting guests while swim spaces can bring in new and recurring customers in a commercial setting. A swimming pool is a great asset but only if it is in good, working order. Before you buy or sell a home with a pool, or if you are noticing that your water system isn’t running like it should be, call Puddle! London pool inspections are able to provide insight into the functionality of a swim space and help buyers make informed decisions before finalizing a sale. 

It is common practice to book a home inspection anytime that a property is changing hands. The average home inspector is highly trained in identifying issues with foundations, roofing and even electrical issues but often aren’t experienced in dealing with pools and spas. Understanding the needs of a pool, spa or hot tub is a complicated process and is an entirely different discipline and that is why it is always better to call an expert to inspect your pool. 

The Benefits of Having An Expert Inspect Your Pool 

There is more than one type of pool inspection service on the market. Some of these will revolve around new construction projects and permitting, insurance purposes and more. These types of inspections are useful but they often don’t consider whether or not a pool works. 

Swimming pool inspections do not stop at the surface level but go below the surfaces and into internal water systems as well. Without extensive technical knowledge and training it is easy to overlook a small tear in a vinyl liner, the signs of a strained circulation system and even underground leaks. A Level I pool inspection focuses on the overall condition of the pool, as well as all of the components that keep swimming pools running. 

Visual Inspections: Every inspection begins with a thorough visual assessment focusing on poolside and surrounding areas. Physical damage, for example, not only looks awful, it can also signify that you might be dealing with a slab leak. A trained eye can spot problem areas, providing insight into how to solve existing issues and prevent potential ones. 

System Testing: Internal water systems are a key aspect of a clean and functional swimming pool. If a pool pump is broken chemical treatments are not able to circulate throughout the entire pool basin, making it incredibly difficult to balance water chemistry. An experienced pool inspector will test everything from the pool pump, motor, heater and return lines to ensure that all components are in good, working order. 

Spotting Safety Issues: Unlike a commercial swim space that is regulated by the public health unit, swimming pools in residential spaces are not closely regulated. This means safety issues may start slowly, getting worse over time. In order to make sure that your swim space is safe, inspectors will assess pool decks, ladders, railings and even slides and diving boards. A visual inspection can help to identify problem areas of loosening or where equipment is coming away from fixtures. 

For the best in customer service, in-depth assessments and valuable insight into the condition of a swimming pool before buying a home, look no further than your local Puddle expert. For current pool owners, an inspection can help to identify pain points within your systems and help to organize repairs, while prospective home owners get peace of mind that they are making a sound investment. Please note that Level I pool inspections do not come with a written report.
