Importance of Pool Inspections
Spring is in full swing, meaning summer is right around the corner! If you haven’t opened up your pool yet, now’s your chance! Open that bad boy before summer is in full swing for maximum pool enjoyment!
Pool Inspections may not be incredibly important for residential pools, but commercial pools absolutely need to be properly inspected.
Having your home pool or spa inspected periodically is a good way to catch potential damage or problems before it gets bad or hurts someone. While you’re unlikely to come across legal issues with an uninspected pool, but it can save you large amounts of money and time spent repairing your pool when you could be enjoying it.
Whether you own or run an apartment complex with a pool, a gym with swimming or spa facilities, or a public pool inspections are vital!
No one needs tenants complaining about improperly heated pools, jets in a hot tub that don’t work, or lights that don’t function. If they are paying for the use of a poorly maintained pool it could hurt your image and tenants may begin getting angry enough to leave!
People love to swim to work out. Whether someone needs a low impact way to lose weight and gain strength or they want to swim a few laps on a hot day instead of running on the treadmill, a gym with a pool brings in a ton of guests! The last thing you need is a lawsuit from chipped tile or cracked vinyl causing physical damage or, even worse, a malfunction of a pump or other part of the pool causing serious damage to your building or guests!
Public pools are full of children and families. It’s a great and low-cost way to cool down large groups of people. That being said, inspections can catch filter problems which could lead to harmful growth, bacteria, or excess chemicals floating around the pool—leading to a slew of legal ramifications. Besides, no one wants to go to a dirty and run down pool.
When to Get Your Pool Inspected
Our pool inspections will check out things that could lead to health concerns, physical damage, equipment damage, and more. Pair inspections with weekly or monthly cleaning, or at least before you officially open your pool to guests or the public. A lot can happen during winterization and over time. We can inspect the entire pool or specific elements, especially if you’re noticing decrease of effectiveness in a specific piece of equipment. Allow us to catch a problem before it becomes major damage or a costly repair. A dirty pool can be a sign of filter or pump issues and small cracks can quickly escalate into tile loss, debris floating in the pool, and physical damage to swimmers!
