Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should a pool inspection cost?

pool inspection will cost around $175, on average, with a low range of $85 and a high end of $499. This price can include a range of different systems checks. First, the pool inspector will perform a visual assessment for signs of debris, cracks, sharp edges and other damage that could lead to injury or deterioration of your pool. They will also check all chemicals, pumps, filters, circulation systems, heaters and other elements that make up the infrastructure of your pool.

To find out exactly how much it will cost to get your pool inspected by a professional, contact pool inspectors near you and request free cost estimates.

How do I schedule a pool inspection?

To schedule a pool inspection, begin by searching for local pool inspectors on Thumbtack. When you find a pool inspector you’re interested in hiring, check their availability and choose a date and time. You can also ask the pool inspector to suggest other dates. Fill out the short survey about your pool inspection, and the inspector will get back to you to confirm the day and time of your inspection.

What are the advantages of hiring a professional pool inspector?

Hiring a professional swimming pool inspector comes with a number of different benefits. It helps homebuyers and owners understand what condition the pool is in, which will help with purchasing decisions, negotiations or simply budgeting for repairs. A pool inspector can also give an accurate assessment of the pool’s mechanical and electrical processes. Perhaps most important is the ability to detect problems in their infancy, so they don’t become expensive repairs down the road.

How do I hire a pool inspector?

To hire a pool inspector, start by searching for professional inspectors near you by entering your zip code on Thumbtack. Once you see a list of potential candidates in your area, narrow down the list by reading their customer ratings and reviews.

Before you hire anyone, check for licensing requirements in your state and make sure the inspector has the proper credentials. The final step is to contact several pool inspectors to receive price quotes and compare them. This will help you decide who to work with.

How much does it cost per year to maintain a pool?

It will cost around $1,032 per year for a weekly pool cleaning service. This price will increase for one-time services, ranging between $150 and $300. This is why it’s generally a good idea to find a pool cleaning company that can do lower-priced weekly maintenance. Ultimately, the cost you pay will vary by your pool’s size, the chemicals needed and the type of service you request.

What do they check during a swimming pool inspection?

A pool inspector can help you address any pool repairs you may need, and they can help you understand your pool's overall condition. Often, they will start by checking for general safety factors, such as the fencing or decking around the pool. They’ll also look at the pool's surface and interior to inspect it for cracks or chipping. Other important checks happen on the pumps, filters, heaters, and other accessories in and around the pool to make sure they’re working properly.

How long does it take to clean a pool?

The time it takes to clean a swimming pool depends heavily on the pool’s condition and size. Pools that receive regular weekly cleaning should take less time to clean, even if the cleaning includes skimming, scrubbing, applying chemicals and vacuuming. However, if you’re just opening your pool for the season, the process may take longer. 

When searching for pool cleaners near you and gathering cost estimates, ask them how long they expect each cleaning will take.

What chemicals do you need to clean a pool?

The main categories of pool chemicals include sanitizers, oxidizers, water balancers, and specialty chemicals. Sanitizers (like chlorine and bromine) disinfect pool water. Oxidizers are a second type of sanitizing chemical meant to kill bacteria and algae. Water balancers keep the pH (acidity) level of the water in the correct place, as well as maintain the proper “hardness” — that is, levels of calcium and other elements. Other specialty chemicals include clarifiers, flocculant, algaecides and more.

If you don’t know how to properly use pool cleaning chemicals, consider hiring a professional pool cleaner to help you maintain your pool.
