Swimming Pool & Spa

Just as a home inspection informs you about the condition of the home you are interested in purchasing, a pool inspection informs you about the  condition of the pool. Pools and spas are very popular in many Arizona homes. If you are purchasing a home with a swimming pool and/or spa  we highly recommend that you have this valuable asset inspected by HouseFacts Home Inspections. The intention of a pool inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible pool components. We identify components that are not functioning properly or are unsafe.


Here is what we inspect:

  • Visible parts of interior finish materials.
  • The visible parts of decks, steps inside the swimming pool/spa shell and coping.
  • The visible part of pumps, motors, blowers, skimmer, filters, drains, heaters, automatic safety controls, gauges, visible piping and valves, and conduit.
  • Any cross connections in the water supply system.
  • External bonding of the pump motors, blowers, heaters and other components that are required to be bonded.
  • Operation of readily assessable lights, (GFCI’s) ground fault circuit interrupters, electrical components, and timer assemblies that are related to the pool or spa.
  • The visible part of permanently installed handrails and ladders.
  • The presence of safety barriers and/or alarms.
  • The presence of entrapment prevention components.
  • Vegetation, grading, surface drainage, and retaining walls that are likely to adversely affect the swimming pool or spa.
  • The visible parts of the screen enclosure (if any), pool fencing, gates and doorways as well as gutters and downspouts that may be connected to the screen enclosure.
