POOL AND SPA INSPECTIONS

Tues., 1/14, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Specialty/Diversification

We will cover identifying and reporting on pools and spas, including access and various pieces of equipment. We'll look at safety equipment developed to reduce accidents and drownings as well as discuss contracts, define terminology, and offer tips on what to look for and typical problems. During a virtual inspection, we'll discuss how to write a report. This is a primer for new inspectors if they are contemplating doing pool and spa inspections and a refresher for those already offering this service to their clients.
