Swimming Pool/Spa Inspection


A swimming pool/spa inspection will examine your pool or hot tub in two ways: visually and mechanically. The visual pool and spa inspection includes examining the pool equipment, electrical supply (including pool lighting) and any safety issues immediately surrounding the pool and pool deck.
