Before hiring someone to perform a swimming leak detection on your pool, ask these important questions:
1. Are they Licensed & Insured? Is their license posted on their website as required by California state law? Here is a link to check on any licensed contractor. If they are not licensed, they're not bonded and insured
2. Do they answer their phones or do you get a voicemail? Partner with a company that is going to be responsive, should problems arise. If you have a problem, do you think they're going to return a message that you left on their voicemail?
3. Do they have a physical address? Fly-by-night companies use P.O. boxes and anonymous mailbox store addresses. And be very careful of fake reviews.

That swimming pool in the backyard may be one of the factors that tempt you to quickly close the deal on a new home…
…But before you do, it pays to know a good deal more about that pool than what you can see at a glance. The home inspector you’re paying for is there to inspect the house. Let the home inspector look for termite damage in the crawl space and get a swimming pool inspection from the professionals at Caltech Pools. Potential home buyers can arrange for a swimming pool inspection conducted by Caltech inspectors simply by calling (818) 436-2953 or completing the online request form on our website.
Caltech Pool’s twenty years experience focuses on the swimming pool inspection with both an up-close external appraisal of the integrity of the pool structure, pool tile and surface as well as an in-depth inspection of all swimming pool equipment. Pumps, filters, heaters and skimmers are tested in operation and verified. The lights and all pool electrical circuits are examined for function and shock hazard. Drain covers and drain configuration will be verified for operation as well as compliance with building codes and drain safety practices. If a spa, catch basin, or fountain feature is included in the pool, proper operation of all functions are observed and documented.
Having a swimming pool inspection and leak detection performed by Caltech Pools can be beneficial to not only to home buyers, but Los Angeles realtors may also profit from recommending Caltech’s two decades of expertise in swimming pool inspections. Defects or malfunctions documented in advance by Caltech’s professional swimming pool home inspections and remedied by the seller can increase the potential buyer’s peace of mind and enhance the likelihood of a successful sale.
