So my wife and I are looking to purchase a house that has an in-ground pool. While I have learned a lot about pools from this forum over the last 2 years, my experience has been limited to my Intex above ground. We have inspections at the house tomorrow but my inspector does nothing with pools. I have called a few local pool people to see if they would be willing to "inspect" the pool but so far no luck. Looking for some advice from all of you of what to look over/check out?.
Here is what I know so far:
Pool was installed about 12 years ago
It is a vinyl lined pool 17x32 with deep end and diving board
Pool is setup as a SWG pool element appears to be fairly new
Has what looks like fiberglass steps
Cement all around the pool
Pump and sand filter located up by house near garage, but not enclosed
Skimmer with at least 2 returns no bottom drain
So any info you can give me on things to check out while we are there tomorrow would be appreciated.
Here is a picture of it:
