What is a Pool Inspection?

A pool inspection is a non-invasive process that allows us to accurately assess the condition of your swimming pool. We strive to provide you with the best pool inspection Los Angeles has to offer, that's why during our inspection, we’ll examine over 200 items - everything from the circulation system mechanical components to electrical to inner workings of the pool, all the way to the tile, plaster, and other essential components. We’ll take a close look at every aspect of your pool that keeps it functioning, safe and beautiful.

Signs a Pool Inspection is A Great Idea

There are many reasons to have your swimming pool inspected, such as buying or selling a home and full disclosure is needed, maintenance on commercial or communal properties, or signs there may be damage to your swimming pool's structure or systems.

Here are a few examples of things you may come across which point to a need for a professional swimming pool inspection:

  • There are stains and small white bumps of calcium on the surface of the pool.
  • The walls show cracks
  • Signs of leaking, such as higher water bills
  • Pool plaster has a greenish blue tint indicating the pipes are deteriorating
  • You find frogs in the filter baskets

In our line of business, there is no shortage of crazy stories about swimming pools being poorly maintained and in desperate need of inspection and repair. Proper upkeep of your pool will extend its life and maintain the value of your property.


Why Do I Need My Swimming Pool Inspected?

It’s not only poor maintenance that can cause your pool to begin performing below your expectations. Some of the causes are the result of natural processes, while others may be caused by wear or malfunctioning equipment.

For example, if a pool has a lot of trees and vegetation surrounding it, the cleaning system, filters, and pumps may be forced to work overtime. Changes in temperature on the deck can cause expansion and put stress on the pool structure. Other times, issues can arise because the pool was built in the past when construction codes were different and do not meet today’s standards. Or, simply put, the pool was constructed poorly.

Perhaps you plan to purchase a home or sell your home with a pool. Or your pool is showing signs of age and you suspect there may be problems. Or you simply want to ensure your pool is running perfectly and you’d like to make sure it stays that way. All of these are great reasons to have your pool inspected by people you can trust and who know pools.

If you need a pool inspection on a residential property and concerned your pool may have a leak, we can help you out.

Pool Inspection Checklist

During the inspection, our expert team at Certified Pool Inspections looks at over 200 items of each pool and the related equipment. Many other inspection services typically check about 20 things. We come in with the philosophy that you (or if you’re in an escrow on a purchase) should know what condition the pool is in. Think of it this way: the condition is there, whether you know about it or not. So why not find out for yourself?

Some of the pool parts on our comprehensive checklist:

  • Circulation system
  • Filter
  • Heater
  • Time Clock
  • Automatic Controls
  • Chlorine Generators
  • Finishes
  • Deck
  • Coping
  • Tile
  • Water level
  • Skimmers
  • Lights
  • Automatic Cleaning System
  • Sweep Pump
  • Infinity or Zero Edge Configurations
  • Slide
  • Waterfall/Fountain
  • Jump/Diving Board
  • Ladder or Grab Rail

While other companies will shape their assessments in the expectation that you’ll hire them to make the repairs too, we merely report the issues, not do the repairs, so you can trust our experts to be honest and trustworthy in their report and all of their conversations with you. This follows the “Conflict of Interest” laws in California, so we don’t have a vested interest in our meeting with you. We merely report what we find.


Your Custom Pool Inspection Report

All of our services include a complete, custom pool inspection report. In it, we’ll outline the anticipated costs for repairs or replacements we identified and are in need of attention. The repairs we recommend are based on existing codes, laws, and industry-wide Standards and Practices, so any below-acceptable conditions of the pool we find are included in order to bring the pool up to code.

This makes sure your custom pool inspection report eliminates fabricated problems and removes hidden costs from the equation. Because we’re not approaching the inspection through the lens of a contractor, you can have complete faith that our professional recommendations are trustworthy and unbiased.

Even more, a hallmark of our service is we take the time to educate you on swimming pools and what it takes to keep your system running smoothly. We’ll give you all the tools and information you need to properly care for your pool and answer all questions you may have about your swimming pool’s functions. We want you to know pools too!
