Pool Inspection Checklist

Your pool is a hot spot for summer fun, but before you dive in, be sure to schedule a thorough swimming pool inspection. What is a pool inspection? This detailed review ensures all components of your pool are working properly, including the filter, pump, drains, and more. Having an exhaustive pool inspection checklist ensures nothing gets overlooked, which is why The BrickKicker uses one for every pool we inspect!

What is a Pool Inspection?

Pool inspections are a routine run-through of all your pool’s equipment and surroundings, ranging from the efficiency of the filter to the safety of the deck. Especially if you live in a colder climate that requires you to close your pool for the winter, scheduling a swimming pool inspection when you open your pool in the late spring is a great way to ensure everything is still performing properly. Pools are a lot of fun, but they can also be dangerous if not maintained; the best way to protect yourself and guests from injury is keeping up with annual pool inspections.
