Buying a home comes with liabilities, and one of them that’s often overlooked is the swimming pool. Insurance typically doesn’t cover issues with pools and when you buy it, you own it. Know first-hand what you’re getting into with a simple leak detection or a swimming pool inspection. Remember, a pool that hasn’t had a leak detection isn’t inspected. Don’t rely on a home-seller’s word for pool inspections.

A lot of home inspectors rely on a visual inspection of a pool to verify that its sound. A visual inspection will tell you if there is a puddle of water around the equipment, and it might tell you that on sight, some of the plastics protruding through the pool walls are broken or need repair, however, if a pool is losing water due to structural cracks, small leaks around fittings or inside the pipes that run underground – you won’t know by looking at it. A home seller can throw a hose into a pool and fill it before you arrive and the pool will look fine. A week after you buy the house, the water could drop 10 inches and guess who’s liable for it … you are.
