I googled for information on how to check out an inground pool in a property I might be purchasing, and came upon this site. Very glad I did. It looks like any information I could possibly want will be here.
As I said, I am going to check out a foreclosure property this weekend. It will be our primary home, so I want to make sure the pool is in good shape and working without too much hassle or expense. It has been covered for 2 years now and the house has been winterized so there is no electric. I know just taking up the cover won't show me anything but green (at best). I do have several years of experience w/an above ground saltwater pool, but what should I look for with an inground? Are there pool inspectors out there and would one be able to tell me anything about a pool that has been closed up that long?
This house is a steal and the pool could make or break the deal, so I am really anxious for it to work out. One thing I do know, when the house was originally put on the market a few years ago, the owner was asking a pretty high price for the area, so I would guess that at that time, the pool was in good shape.
Thanks for any advice.
Thanks - Laurie
