Pool Surface Issues Found During The Swimming Pool Inspection
The pool coping and blue pool tile is in fairly good and structurally sound condition. The pool plaster, however, is another story. The plaster is in very poor condition due to excessive staining and plaster degradation due to what looks to be spot etching. Spot etching happens due to conditioner levels in the pool water most likely introduced from the chlorine floater. this is a floating unit that holds multiple tablets, which was in the pool at the time of this pool inspection.
There was a small area of pool decking and pool coping that were not the same level but, that is not very uncommon. Over time ground shifts and settles and may have happened early on in the pools life.
There was another big issue found and that was the in-floor pool cleaner at this Poway, CA home pool inspection was not getting suction. That can be as small as a clump of leaves clogging the vacuum line or even worse. If worse, a broken plumbing line or a much more aggressive clog that may be labor-intense and costly to repair.
