Diagnosing Problems with Your Pool
Our pool inspectors use high-grade industry tools and procedures to thoroughly inspect your Fort Worth home’s pool and quickly and accurately diagnose any problems with it. Before our inspection begins, we’ll start by identifying the basics:
- Pool depth
- Pool age
- Pool size
- Pool manufacturer
- Types of materials used in construction (e.g., poured cement, vinyl, or fiberglass)
Our professionals will do a visual inspection of the area around the pool and the pool itself to look for warning signs of potential issues, like cracks in the surface. We’ll check the railings, ladders, and diving boards are up to all standards and securely fastened. We’ll make sure that your filters are properly installed and in working order, and we’ll test your pool’s water to make sure that it has proper levels of chlorine, calcium, pH, and alkalinity.
Pool Equipment Check
Your pool is made up of many different pieces, and it’s important that each of them are functioning well at all times. Our Fort Worth pool experts will take an intensive look at each of these parts. The plumbing inspection will make sure that pumps are working properly and using the correct amounts of water pressure. If there’s a problem with poor filtration or water pressure it detected, our experts will recommend an additional round of tests by a leak detection specialist. The inspector will also look at the main drain to see if it is up to code.
