Is your pool safe?
When searching for a new home, it’s important to keep in mind that overlooking certain aspects of the property can lead to problems in the future. One such aspect that many people tend to forget about is the condition of the pool system. Thankfully, including a pool inspection in your home inspection is a simple and necessary step.
By getting a pool evaluation, you can identify potential problems before they become major issues that require extensive and expensive repairs. It’s important to understand that pool repairs can be costly, with an average repair costing about $2,000. If the damage is severe, a full replacement of the pool can cost upwards of $20,000. However, by getting your pool evaluated, you can catch any potential issues early on and address them before they become significant and expensive problems.
It’s also essential to keep in mind that pool safety defects can be fatal.

Getting the pool inspected during a home inspection is a small cost with a significant payoff. It can help you avoid costly repairs, negotiate a better deal with the seller, and ensure that your pool is safe and healthy. With the average cost of pool repairs so high, it’s essential to take proactive steps to protect yourself and your investment.
