Having said that ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif) I figured we could start a thread highlighting some of the things we look for during these inspections. . .
Pressure gauges can be a good indicator of how well the homeowner maintains their system.
High pressure (typically 20 psi or more) indicates a dirty filter whether it be sand, DE or cartridge. This one is a bit excessive and it shows in the "cloudy" pool water as well.
An open gate is a safety hazard (no self closing device). A kid could wander in off the streets and decide to "check out" the pool. Couple that with the cloudy water. . .
The extension cord was plugged in when I arrived I unplugged it before I started my inspection and then the sprinklers came on
Oh - one more thing for now - don't fire up the heater until you've looked inside ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
