Pool and Spa Inspections

This is not something you want to leave to chance.  If you are buying a home with a pool or spa, get it inspected!!! Westcliff Inspection Services is certified to perform complete Pool and Spa Inspections through InterNachi.

Just as a home inspection informs you about the condition of the home you are interested in purchasing, a pool inspection informs you about the condition of the pool. The intent of a pool inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible pool components and the inspection consists of four phases:


Pool / spa placement and protection. Inspection of fencing, gates, screen enclosure, proximity to electrical wires, location of electrical outlets and placement to the home.

Pool / spa and coping. This includes the pool and deck surface condition (cracks, discoloration, and pitting) and the coping surrounding the pool (open joints, cracking). Drains are inspected for the presence of anti-vortex covers for safety reasons.

Pool / spa equipment. This includes inspection of pool/spa lights, the presence of GFCI devices, junction box condition and location, pumps, filters, piping, timers, disconnects, heaters, controls, accessories, skimmers, and the appropriate electrical bonding is in place.

Pool / spa equipment operation. Inspection and operation of the pump, inspection for leakage, proper skimming and filtration, heater activation, filter leaks and the operation of the spa.

Well and Water Testing

If your home has a well instead of municipal water, then be sure to have us perform a well inspection for you.

Both a well yield test and a water purity test are important for you an your family before moving in.

A well yield test will help you understand if the water your well produces is enough for you.

A water purity test will tell you if certain contaminants are in your water that could harm your health.


Septic System Inspections

Does your home have a septic system instead of public sewer? Then having it properly inspected before moving in is very important.

There are a lot of moving parts in a septic system, and failure in any one of them can mean repairs costing thousands of dollars.

Your septic system is made up of three basic parts – your septic tank, your distribution box, and your leach field.

Inside of each of those parts are even more components. Such as baffles, lids, access ports, different types of pipes, and other parts.

When buying a home, have us perform a certified septic system inspection to make sure that this vital system continues to work for you for many years to come.
