HOME POOL INSPECTIONS
Before buying a home, it is imperative that you have the swimming pool inspected by a professional. We have found that many home inspectors are not swimming pool experts and do not always provide the insight needed, leading to potentially costly repairs
614 Pools strives to provide quick and thorough 15-point pool inspections to share a full report on the condition of the swimming pool, equipment and accessories. Every inspection includes estimates for repairs and potential future repairs.
Before buying a property with a pool, you should always have a pool inspection prior to the closing of the sale! Inspections are typically performed within 1-2 business days; rush services are available!
The following is a list of major items that are thoroughly evaluated through our inspection process, along with the rough ballpark replacement cost.
