Is a pool part of a home inspection?

Thumbtack Editors

Most home inspections do not include pool inspections, according to Inspection Certification Associates. The reason for this is usually a practical one — most home inspectors don’t have the expertise to properly assess a pool’s condition. This skill set requires knowing how to search for problems that aren’t always obvious, such as small cracks and issues with complex equipment.
