Swimming Pools & Spas

Let the licensed Certified Master Inspectors at Square-One Inspection Service inspect your Tampa Bay pool & spa.Swimming Pools and Spas can be an extremely enjoyable addition to any Tampa Bay home, that can turn into an expensive nightmare should something go wrong. 

Why not have a
trained, state licensed, Certified Master Inspector inspect the swimming pool for the home you are purchasing? Just as a Square-One Inspection Service home inspection informs you about the condition of the home you are interested in purchasing, a pool inspection informs you about the condition of the pool or spa.

The intent of our extensive inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible pool and spa components to the Standards of Practice printed below.  Inspection pricing starts at $50 when conducted as part of a full home inspection.
