Central Florida Swimming Pool Inspections

CFBI proudly offers pool inspections as an upgrade service during your home inspection or as a complete stand-alone inspection service. Please see details and commonly asked questions below to decide what type of service would work best for your situation. We are always available to answer any questions regarding your Orlando/Central Florida area pool inspection needs.

What is a pool inspection?

A pool inspection is a visual inspection of various components that make up your in-ground pool or spa system. We will write up a special report with digital photos and findings based on our inspection. During a visual pool inspection, we do not enter the pool to perform up close evaluations of the pool surfaces below the waterline. We inspect the following items during the course of your pool evaluation:

  • The Plumbing
  • Filters
  • Lights
  • Adjoining structure as it relates to the pool or spa;
  • Valves
  • Solar heating system
  • Pumps and motors
  • Electrical system
  • Filtration system
  • Pool or spa heater
  • The safety barriers and devices

What are the local safety requirements for a pool?

Every state varies and it can even vary depending on local municipality requirements however there are some standard safety items that every Florida pool should have:

  • Pool cover or barrier
  • Self-closing and self-latching gates around the yard
  • Pool safety alarms
  • Electrical grounding and bonding issues
  • Proper GFCI protection
  • Lights
  • Safe walkways around pool
  • Ladders and steps
  • Proper filtration and chemical treatment for microbes

What is the cost of a pool inspection?

A visual pool inspection will be a lower entry cost then a full in-depth leak evaluation. Our stand-alone visual pool inspections start at $149 but these can increase based on a few factors. Our stand-alone leak detection service starts at $249 but if added to a visual pool inspection can be discounted. Here are some items we will need answered to properly quote out the services:

  • Where the pool is located
  • Will the pool inspection be added to one of our other services like a home inspection or will it be stand-alone
  • Other features present with the pool - Separate spa, multiple pumps, waterfall features, etc.

Do you provide leak detection services?

Yes we do! This is a special add-on option to the standard visual pool inspection. A proper pool leak evaluation begins with a full pool, clean/clear water and the equipment turned off. Water in the pool pushing out of a crack, pipe separation, leak or pinhole will make a distinct noise. We will use a special scope/microphone to determine the leak’s presence. Special dye testing can also be performed to isolate the leaking area. This is a specialized service that requires proper training and equipment. Let CFBI be your pool leak expert!
