Swimming pools and spas that are often connected to the pool are a great deal of pleasure but unfortunately also involve a good deal of upkeep, chemicals and knowledge to keep them functioning properly and safely.  There are pool services who take care of all of the details for you, an expense that is not cheap nor should it be, as there is a gret deal to be responsible for, especially in the summer.  Because of the expense many pool owners do not utilize experts and thus the pool can and often does become neglected.  When a pool has a heater, it has many more items to care for.

When considering a home with a pool it is extremely important to know its condition.  It is vital to know if the pumps and controls operate properly, if all electrical items are properly grounded and bonded and when there is an under water pool light if it is moisture free.  Improper grounding can be fatal upon entering the pool.  Filtration, backwash and sanitation systems are important. You need to know if they are in good operating condition and then understand and know how they work--also the procedures to maintain them.



Proper safety equipment and pool protection are vital and also controlled by codes.  I seldom inspect a pool that is totally compliant with all of the regulations. The buyer must know these when considering the home purchase.  Having owned and maintained my own swimming pools as well as extensive training with various brands can be of considerable help and money savings to you as a prospective pool owner.
