Does anyone have a pool addendum that you would not mind sharing with me?
For your agreement or report?
Does this help you:…
(Recommend seasonal service check). Water table is not determined. Ancillary equipment such as cleaning/ testing supplies, computer controls, covers, chlorinators, chemical dispensers, water conditioners, or ionization devices are not inspected. This is a visual inspection of accessible items only. Some items are not inspected when not in operation or turned off. The objective of our limited visual pool inspection is to determine if the pool and related equipment may benefit from a more thorough inspection by a qualified and certified pool specialist. The scope of our inspection includes a limited visual inspection of the pool electrical system, primary circulation system, pool barrier system, the pool interior surface and surrounding deck. The standards used to inspect this pool are the Texas Real Estate Commissions Standards Of Practice for Swimming Pools and Spas. A copy of these standards is available on request. The inspector is not a pool or spa specialist. We do not dismantle components such as filters, pumps and heaters. We do not test water chemistry. We do not test or operate cleaning systems, control valves, chemical injectors or similar components. This report is based upon the current condition of the pool/spa and does not reflect future conditions that may yet arise. The person presently servicing the pool would be best prepared to explain valve operation. All repairs should be done by a qualified and reputable swimming pool contractor. At the time of repairs, the pool specialist should make a further evaluation of the structure and equipment and make all necessary repairs.
Thank you John.
Yes that helps
