Pool losing water? We can help
If your swimming pool loses water only when the pump is on, the leak is probably on the pressure side. The leak detection process pinpoints the area under suspicion, where the appropriate repair can be made. If the pool loses water only while the pump is off, we look towards the suction side. And if it leaks all the time, well...it could be anywhere. It is important to repair leaks to prevent erosion of earth that may be supporting key areas of the pool and equipment. In addition, pool leaks can waste several hundred gallons of your filtered, heated and chemically treated water per day! If you suspect your pool is leaking we can help.
Buying a new home with a pool?
Have a Professional Pool Inspection done before you buy.
Pools Have Complex Equipment. There are many moving parts to pools. Beyond the actual pool, which needs to be solid and leak-free, the pumps, heaters and filters need to be checked for proper operation. The electrical equipment needs to be inspected, as does the plumbing. Decking surfaces, safety covers and the hardware that secures them should be evaluated for condition and longevity.
Inspect the overall operating condition of the pool and equipment
Pressure test the plumbing for possible leaks
Check the main drains to make sure the pool is equipped with federally approved anti-entrapment covers on all suction outlets (drains) in the pool.
Check fencing or other barriers around the pool. All pools require functioning self-closing, self-latching gates.
Don’t Rely on a Home Inspector. Some assume the home inspection covers the pool, but it's rare when it does. Even if they offer pool inspections, many home inspectors do not have the required expertise to evaluate a pool. In fact, most home inspection reports include a disclaimer covering the pool.
