Benefits of regular pool equipment inspections

June 8, 2018

They say that electricity and water are a dangerous mix, so a regular pool equipment check by a qualified and professional pool technician can alert you to any potential problems and allow you to put steps in place to ensure pool and spa safety at all times.

We have discussed the importance of having your swimming pool water quality checked on a regular basis. Pool water hygiene is imperative for a healthy swimming pool (or spa), environment and year long swimming enjoyment.

Pool equipment checks – for residential and commercial pools and spas – inspect your pool pump, hoses, pipes, chlorinators and the general workings of your filters. If any suspect parts are in need of repairs we can provide a repair service and/or replacement parts from our workshop. Sometimes the repairs can be done on the same day!

Our fully qualified and trained technicians will carry out a full inspection and discuss any concerns they may encounter. Regular pool equipment servicing will ensure you maximise the efficiency of your equipment as well. Generally we will check for:

  • General wear and tear on equipment and parts – does anything need repairing or replacing.
  • Hoses and fittings are all secure and in good working order, there are no leaks.
  • Filters are clean and functioning efficiently.
  • Chlorinators are working efficiently.
  • Automatic pool cleaners (suction and robotic pool cleaners) are cleaning all areas of the pool

Once the pool equipment inspection is completed we will provide a full written report and recommend any repairs or maintenance issues we may find.

Pre-Purchase Pool Inspection – Buying a home with a swimming pool or spa?

We can offer a pre-purchase pool inspection which will check that your pool is compliant and meets all Queensland Building and Construction Commission guidelines. This inspection will:

  • identify staining, cracking, calcium deposits or osmosis;
  • pool safety features are installed, ie CPR signs;
  • pool equipment is in good working order, including lights;
  • check deck lids, weir doors, filter baskets and main drain covers;
  • there is proper storage of pool chemicals;
  • there are no apparent leaks;
  • water chemistry.

A full inspection report will be provided along with any recommendations if any pool equipment is due for replacement. There can be a significant cost for buyers who aren’t aware that some of their pool equipment is old and in need of replacement to bring the pool up to a quality operating standing.

We will highlight any non-compliant issues found and recommend compliance fixes as well as suggest any obvious repairs or maintenance should they be required.
