Pool Safety

Home Inspector with National Property Inspections

Summer is obviously the most popular season for swimming pools. Routine maintenance is important for any swimming pool equipment. Here are some must know/must do items regarding swimming pools.

  • Hire a service contractor to routinely check equipment
  • Establish a maintenance routine based on your pool equipment
  • Maintain chemical balance, treatment and water chemistry
  • Keep records on maintenance and water chemistry
  • Routinely check for leaks at piping and other systems 
  • Regularly change or clean filters and screens
  • Never allow children to use the pool without adult supervision
  • An electronic or automated safety monitoring system should be installed to detect water movement when the pool is not in use
  • Secure the pool with a proper enclosure when not in use
