A home with a swimming pool requires a Swimming Pool Inspection with the Home Inspection and a pool that hasn’t had a proper leak detection is NOT truly inspected! We can’t stress this enough, but a lot of home inspectors are taking customers money and providing inaccurate information about the pool that’s being sold. Thieves! Visual Pool Inspections mean nothing, and lazy home inspectors know this, but they don’t want to do the work. When a home buyer gets the keys to their house and learns the pool has dropped several inches, someone is going to question the home inspector who said the pool was sound. That home inspector is going to get a phone call and a lawsuit – and he should!
But what if the Home Inspector could MAKE money on the job? The truth is – he or she can by simply doing the job right. The few hundred dollars you’re going to get for performing a sight only home inspection can easily be doubled by providing a 300 point swimming pool inspection with a leak detection.
“I’ve had 5 clients this past week that called me for a swimming pool inspection with a leak detection,” shares Todd Pincher, a home inspector in Corbin, KY. “The fact is, there are a lot of guys out here putting some Anderson ball-float in the pool and telling customers their pool is leaking, then charging them money. The customer already knows the pool is leaking, but without the Pro Complete Kit from LeakTronics, they can’t tell the customer WHERE the pool is leaking. I can, and that’s how I get the job and get paid for it”
By providing a simple 45 minute leak detection, you are guaranteeing that a pool is, or isn’t leaking, and above all – you’re doing the job that the customer paid you to do right. Don’t steal from your customers – taking their money for a cheap visual inspection on the pool; do your job, that’s what they’re paying for!
