Some pool service companies and pool builders offer pool inspections, but as a sideline to their primary business.
As a retired swimming pool builder, with over 30 years experience as a contractor, inspector, industry expert for the Sate of California, testifying in arbitration and judicial cases, my only business now is inspections and consultations.
I can normally perform the inspection the next day and have the report to you the following day.
My reports are detailed narratives listing all findings including the safety items, operational deficiencies and aesthetic points. Suggested corrective action and approximate costs are included.
Although not necessary, I prefer that the potential buyer be present during the inspection for a walk through, verbally explaining the findings and operation of the equipment.
The inspection includes ongoing telephone consultations after the buyer assumes the residence.
To preclude any conflict of interest, I do not normally perform the corrective action, but will supply a list of contractors for competitive prices.
