General Introduction

Introduction: The following numbered and attached pages are your home inspection report. This inspection was performed in accordance with the current Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of InterNACHI. The Standards contain certain and very important limitations, expectations and exclusions to the inspection. A copy is available prior to, during and after the inspection and it is part of the report.

Your Inspector may bring:  to your attention and discuss certain Recommended Upgrades of original and functioning installations and assemblies of Systems and Components that you may wish to consider implementing as part of upgrading your pool. These Recommended Upgrades may exceed some of the building and construction standards that applied at the time of the original construction of the home. The differences between any such original building and construction standards and current standards do not constitute "deficiencies" in the subject property. Recommended Upgrades should be performed only by Qualified parties in accordance with all applicable industry standards and governmental requirements pertaining to permits, codes, ordinances, and regulations.

We recommend that client check with the Building and Planning Department to see if there are any "open" or previous permits on a property they are considering purchasing. An "open" permit could prevent another permit from being issued for the property and there could be some outstanding issues that need to be addressed. 

Any oral statements made by the Inspector  pertaining to Recommended Upgrades or any inclusion in the Inspection Report of information regarding Recommended Upgrades shall be deemed to be informational only and supplied as a courtesy to you and shall not be deemed to be an amendment to or waiver of any exclusions included.

Use of photos and video: Your report includes many photographs which help to clarify where the inspector went, what was looked at, and the condition of the pool at the time of the inspection. Some of the pictures may be of deficiencies or problem areas, these are to help you better understand what is documented in this report and may allow you see areas or items that you normally would not see. A pictured issue does not necessarily mean that the issue was limited to that area only, but may be a representation of a condition that is in multiple places. Not all areas of deficiencies or conditions will be supported with photos.

Swimming Pool: Pool Information

Pools are fun, but children and adults can lose their life quickly. Over 4000 lives annually are lost with one-third under the age of 14. A child can drown in the time it takes to answer a phone. A swimming pool is 14 times more likely than a motor vehicle to be involved in the death of a child age 4 and under.An estimated 5,000 children ages 14 and under are hospitalized due to near-drownings each year; 15 percent die in the hospital and as many as 20 percent suffer severe, permanent brain damage. Of all preschoolers who drown, 70 percent are in the care of one or both parents at the time of the drowning and 75 percent are missing from sight for five minutes or less. Drowning surpasses all other causes of death to children age 14 and under in Arizona, California,Florida, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

A pool alarm with a loud speaker system to sound outside as well as inside the home could save a life. Even if you do not have children you should be concerned. 35% of children that drowned did so in someone else's pool.

Many time clocks have 24-hour timers with "on" and "off" trippers. The trippers (also called dogs) are set to the time you want the component to go on and off.
